Up for Sale - My Theta Compli Universal Player. It has performed
flawlessly since  I purchased it.  I am not the original owner. I also do not
have the original packing material.  

The Compli came as close to serving as a universal format source
component as A / V technology allowed when it came out. The Compli's
combination of sophistication and exceptional versatility provided
extraordinarily high quality playback for a multiplicity of listening and
viewing formats.

The Compli's unique blend of uncompromised performance,
flexibility and advanced technology made it ideal for any high-end home theater
or home entertainment application. It had six-channel analog audio outputs, and
digital outputs for PCM, DTS and Dolby Digital. It came equipped for RS-232
control, and with composite, S-video, component and 480p video outputs. It let
you play nearly any audio, video, and image format of the time: DVD-Audio,
DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, SACD, Audio CD, Video CD, CD-R, CD-RW. The Compli
also had limited ability to work with CD-R / RW, DVD-R / RW and mp3 formatted

Options for Compli included a Serial Digital Interface (SDI) and
Theta's Ultra Sync II 480p output board using Faroudja Labs' Directional
Correlational Deinterlacing® (DCDi®) technology. SDI kept the signal in the
digital domain, rather than subjecting it to further conversions to analog and
back again. This avoided major sources of degradation, which was noticeable in
high-definition video systems. SDI's purer digital signal was especially
effective in enhancing picture quality on flat-panel plasma screens and from
digital video projectors. (SDI, a professional standard, was not distance
restrictive like consumer digital video transmission methods.) The Ultra Sync
II option eliminated the staircasing or jagged edge artifacts often visible
along the diagonal edges in video generated by conventional upconverters. It
did so by adjusting each pixel in each moving edge in a scene to align with the
movement, instead of crossing it. The result was a smoother, more film-like,
more engaging image.
