Detailed Description & Specifictions:
"In my opinion one of the best DVD players you'll find anywhere on the planet"
- Home Cinema Choice
The DV139 offers an amazing upscaled ‘Near-HD’ picture from standard DVD, and delivers such an increase in CD and SACD sound quality, that the DV139 is equivalent to a high-end CD player. Even audiophiles can have one machine for all their discs without compromising audio quality.
As one of the first specialist companies in the world to produce high performance DVD players, Arcam enjoys a worldwide reputation for excellence in this field.
It is all too easy to forget why people invest in audio and video system for the home. For some it’s the love of music and for others the thrill of a great movie. The DV139 was designed as a master of both disciplines. Put simply, it is the player to deliver the very best in home entertainment.
Some of the most cutting edge DVD technology available was utilized in the DV139. Its core processor, the Zoran Vaddis 888s, was designed to obtain the very best quality from all the popular disc types including DVD-Video, CD, DVD-Audio and SACD. Its internal video processors are from Anchor Bay Technology. For de-interlacing the DV139 uses the ABT102 with class leading bad edit detection and “any format” cadence processing. For remarkable video scaling the ABT1010 is used. This IC is revered as possibly the best scaling engine available and offers outputs at up to 1080p resolution.
To ensure an equally breathtaking audio performance, Wolfson audio 8741 DACs provide accurate digital to analogue conversion at 24-bit 192 kHz, whilst ultralow jitter clocking ensures a solid and accurate sound field. Twin toroidal mains transformers mean delicate audio signals enjoy a completely separate power supply from their digital and video counterparts. The tri-laminate Acousteel chassis mechanically separates the electronic circuits from internal or air borne vibration.
Designed for movie and music enthusiasts, the DV139’s specification will delight the most ardent of audiophiles and videophiles. In addition, its full suite of Infra Red (IR) and RS 232 control options makes it the perfect choice for high performance custom installations.
