ONKYO DV-HD805 HD DVD Player $799.99

Maximizing the Potential of HD DVD with the Latest High-Definition Audio and Video Developments.
Onkyo's debut HD DVD player has definitely been worth the wait. While other companies' first-generation players offered limited capabilities—due to a lack of high-definition surround-sound codecs, ineffective digital connectivity and a scarcity of content—the DV-HD805 HD DVD player packs the key technologies that will take high-definition HD DVD content to its full potential.This player is one of the first to handle high-bit-rate streaming of Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio, as well as the groundbreaking precision of HQV Reon-VX video processing. Serving as the ideal foil for Onkyo's acclaimed high definition-ready A/V receivers, the DV-HD805 is perfectly timed to deliver on the promise of high-definition home entertainment.

Hmm $98 or $800. Who the hell is gonna pay that much for an hd dvd player?? Doesn't look like it adds much over the curent $300 or less players.

What it adds is HQV Reon-VX video processing, which is viewed as one of the finest deinterlacers on the market (excluding the realta chip). The reon is used in players that typically cost $1000-1500. And it will produce a far better picture then any of the 3rd gen players. The only qualm I have is that it really doesn't appear to offer anything over the HD-XA2 which can be had for $400-500 and with the new firmware will bitstream lossless audio.

After a few price cuts it could be a decent pickup for $400-500.
