    RDV-1060 HDCD support?

    Hi!
    I got my first Rotel product last week when I bought the RSX-1065. I know that it supports HDCD, and when I tried one in my current dvd-player (cheap JVC) it had "HDCD" in the display. I'm going to buy the RDV-1060, so my question is this: Do I need a HDCD compatible dvd-player to play HDCD's or will the 1065 do the job anyways? And does the RDV-1060 support HDCD?

    Best regards
    Chili

    No you don't need a HCDC cpmpatible dvd player..

    Any player is capable of transmitting the HDCD signal over the digital connection (either coax or toslink). The 1065 supports HDCD, so I suspect that the 1060 DVD player will be able to play HDCD's.

    It is just PCM bitstream, and the decoding is done in the DAC of the 1065.

        What is the bitstream of a HDCD?

        when I load a regular CD in my player, the RSX-1055 display 44,1Khz...

        what would it display for a HDCD?

        and are the newer "Remastered" (like the Rush CDs) are encoded as HDCD or at 44,1Khz??

        and if so, what is good to buy the Remastered if the bitstream is the same as the older one??

        (am I getting this right??)

          Hi Tha Freak, check out this site for a list of HDCD titles.

          I think remastered just means going back to the original recording and using present day technology to remove noise and artefacts, perhaps a little remixing etc, to improve the sound, much like remastered films for better PQ.

          Hope that helps
          Simon
