Leading the Field with High-Definition Video Quality and the Whole Gamut of Music Recordings

As Onkyo's first 1080p upscaling Super Audio CD and DVD Audio/Video player, the DV-SP506 is built on a platform of robust, performance-focused A/V processing and HDMI capability. HDMI is the pipeline through which your DVDs are transformed all the way to high-definition video quality. The DV-SP506 also delivers multichannel PCM audio and Direct Stream Digital (DSD) over HDMI. To enhance audio quality and system integration, the player draws on two proprietary Onkyo technologies - VLSC and RIHD. Audio quality is further boosted by three high-end Burr-Brown audio DACs and an internal design that suppresses harmful vibrations.
