It's a matter of choice – you choose the disc, and the DPS-6.5 chooses to play it. With the ability to play dvd-audio/video, sacd, and other popular audio and video formats, you have the freedom to just press play. Finally, a DVD player that thinks so you don't have to.

Format Compatibility
Imagine walking into your favorite video or music store and not having to think about what disc format to purchase. The DPS-6.5 gives you this freedom. It is compatible with DVD-Audio/Video, SACD, DVD±R/RW, CD-R/ RW, even MP3 and WMA audio files. For added flexibility, it also plays JPG photo image CDs for slide shows on your TV.

Outstanding Audio Quality
With high-resolution digital-to-analog converters, which incorporate our exclusive Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry, you are guaranteed the superb audio quality your home theater deserves. To ensure the audio from your music and movies reaches your receiver in its purest form, a Direct Digital Path is used to carry this signal straight from the disc to the digital outputs on the rear panel.

Superior Video
The DPS-6.5 has the power to produce stunning video images with increased dimensionality, maximizing the enjoyment of your DVD collection. It features progressive scan with 2-3 pull-down processing which provides smoother video from film-based sources, a high-speed Video DAC, and high quality BNC outputs for connection to plasma and projection displays.

Ease of Operation
An intuitive icon-based, on-screen display makes setup and operation very user-friendly. Enhanced front panel controls allow you to navigate the disc's menus even if you have misplaced the remote control. This likely will not happen since other devices in your system can be conveniently controlled by this single, pre-programmed remote control.
