Marantz DV6600 Universal DVD Player

Now that HD-DVD and Blu-Ray are almost upon us, regular vanilla DVDs are on their way out. However, like with console games, the best products are always released near the end of the lifecycle. In this case, the Marantz DV6600 Universal Player.

This progressive scan player has 480p, 720p and 1080i HDMI output to up-convert all your standard DVDs to HDTV glory. Not only that, these formats are supported:

DVD-Video/Audio, SACD-Stereo/Multi-channel, DVD-R/RW, CD, CD-R/RW, SVCD, VCD, MP3, WMA9, JPEG and DivX Discs

Throw any kind of disc at this monster and it will eat it up and call you Nancy. All this muscle doesn't come cheap though. The retail price is a hefty $599.00. For that much money, perhaps an HD-DVD player may be more future-proof?
