|The big news for audiophiles was the introduction of the DVD-NS999ES, an advanced DVD player with a 14-bit, 108MHz video DAC, pixel-for-pixel video processing, "Precision Cinema Progressive" video output—and multichannel SACD capabilities.
The single-disc player, which replaces the DVD-NS9000ES, uses frame and beam construction throughout, with a mechanically isolated non-resonant subchassis for the spindle, motor, and optical pickup. The 999 deletes the copper-clad (or solid copper) ground planes that have characterized high-end Japanese designs in recent years. "Environmental concerns" were the official explanation for the design change. Available in October, the DVD-NS999ES will sell for approximately $1200.
