Sharp SD-HX500 Digital AV Receiver and Universal Player


When Sharp Electronics unveiled its audacious line of 1-Bit digital AV receivers based on delta-sigma modulation amplifiers, each with a built-in, progressive-scan, universal DVD player, Sony again came to mind—and for good reason. These innovative...

Sharp SD-HX500 Digital AV Receiver and Universal Player


When Apple introduced the iPod, many industry observers scratched their heads, wondering why Sony hadn't been the first to deliver such a product. After all, Sony had invented the Walkman--the first speakerless, portable personal audio cassette player,...

Direct digital link from player to amplifier for SACD and DVD-Audio

Better sound and flexibility available elsewhere for the same price, but not in such a small, one-piece package
