This 8.5 kg unit is full of specialised circuitry to enhance audio and video performance. It supports virtually all DVD and CD formats with the exception of DivX and DVD-RAM. The unit is built to minimise external vibrations to provide near errorless information retrieval from the disk.
A custom 14-bit/216MHz video DAC that supports 10-bit i/p conversion (rather than standard 8-bit) works in conjunction with the noise-shaped video circuitry to remove signal noise and sharpen the image. This provides near high-definition output via HDMI.
The unit supports Dolby Headphone to provide multi-channel sound via stereo headphones. Individual amplifier circuits on each channel further enhance audio performance.
