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. In a world of uncertainty and high definition format wars, Arcam introduces its best ever DVD player, the DV139.
With such uncertainty in the future of high definition formats, 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 has been designed as a master of both disciplines. Put simply, it is the player to deliver the very best in home entertainment now, and for many years to come.
Some of the most cutting edge DVD technology in the world has been utilised in the DV139. Its core processor, the Zoran Vaddis 888s, is 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 DACs provide accurate digital to analogue conversion 24-bit 192kHz, whilst ultra low 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.
