Onkyo’s upconverting DV-SP504 gold DVD player

With this news story coming across my desk, I just realized I have not made a news category for traditional DVD/CD players. I'll file this under General news for now. Getting to the story at hand, Onkyo is releasing a new upconverting DVD player to replace the DV-SP502. Format wise, expect it to support DVDs, CDs, SACDs, DivX, MP3 and WMA files. The downside is that it is not a networked player. The upgrade comes mainly in the form of HDMI, 1080i upconversion and Onkyo's Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry system.

From the article:

It also adds Onkyo's VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) system, which'll supposedly work its magic to remove noise and make your music and movies sound as good as they can. Look for this one to set you back about $370 when it drops November 15th.
