Has anyone head any difference with the remaster feature on or is it just a huge marketing scam?
Well it's certainly not a marketing scam because my pre/pro switches from 44khz to 88.2khz/96khz when the remaster circuit is engaged.
Whether it makes a "big" difference? Not to me, but I wouldn't play my CD's on the RP91 anyway, I have a separate CD/DAC combo for that.
Ric Perrott - My DVD's
I agree but shouldn't there be at least a little bit of noticeable difference to the ears?
It does smooth out the highs but only on limited material. I found that I do well on newage material but not much for the others kind of music.
Definitely not marketing scam because...
I can hear the difference - the sound is warmer. Whether it sounds better or not is a matter of personal taste. I like it.
But the really obvious reason is...
Panasonic is making no effort whatsoever to leverage sales off this feature - they aren't hyping it; there is no scam. If there was they'd be trying to use the feature to sell the player.
The bitterness of low quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price has passed.

It sure was marketed in the DVD-A10. I tried it on some stuff and I can't tell the difference between on and off. If it does anything it's too subtle for my ears to detect. It's not worth worrying about. "Upsampling" seems to be a buzzword or "hot" feature on some high end stuff. At this level and in this implementation I can't tell what the heck it's supposed to do.
