Having trouble deciding between the DVD-Audio and SACD formats? Pioneer’s got the answer in two new DVD players. The DV-47Ai and DV-45A can both read DVD-Audio and SACD discs. The $1200 DV-47Ai features 108MHz/12-bit video processing, while the $700 DV-45A offers 54MHz/10-bit video processing. Both feature 192kHz/24-bit Burr Brown audio processing. The DV-47Ai includes IEEE 1394 connectivity (for high-resolution audio through their upgraded VSX-49TXi receiver), 4:4:4 video upsampling, sixteen adjustable video parameters with three memory settings, plus smooth scan and a new GUI.

Continuing on the DVD theme, Pioneer Elite’s new $2000 DVR-7000 DVD recorder is compatible with the DVD-R and DVD-RW formats that can hold 2 hours of DVD quality video, or 6 hours of VHS quality material. The DVD-7000 includes an IEEE 1394 interface, 3D Y/C separation circuit, MPEG-2 encoder with variable bitrate, progressive scan output, a built-in time base corrector and a 181-channel TV tuner with VCR+ and seven-event recording timer.

Also new from Pioneer are three new rear projection monitors, the PRO-730HD 64”, PRO-630 58” and PRO-530 53”. The trio features multiple DVI interfaces with HDCP capabilities and a new PureCinema III film detection circuit with 3:2 pull-down and 1080i upsampling. The new “Reference Theater Mode Pro” automatically selects a 6500K color temperature, turns off velocity scan modulation, sharpness, flesh tone and black level expansion circuitry, resulting in a very film-like image. The three models will be available for $7900, $6900 and $5900 respectively.
