    Besides the two year old Pioneer universal player who makes or has near-term plans to market one. I'm at a point, that I would like to add a SACD player, but would hate to have a universal player in my local store in two months time. I don't need digital outputs or progressive scan. Just SACD and DVD-A, multi-channel and bass management.

    Pioneer has one now that I believe costs around $6k, and they've anounced another that I think will be in the $1500 range. I'm seriously considering buying that next year, I believe it will be available here early next year.

    The Pioneer DV-747 is the model in Asia, likely to be introduced as the DV-47A in North America.
    There are reports that the DSD data undergoes a conversion to PCM and is passed through the PCM DACs. I cannot verify the accuracy of this statement.
