New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

One of the new drives...

...is used on the Teac Esoteric DV-60, Charles. I noticed that it was *not* the VRDS/VRDS NEO in my recent review of the DV-60 (link below). Having spent time with the X-01 and the UX-1 in 2006, I was familiar with those drives.

Teac calls this particular drive in the DV-60 the "VOSP" (for "Vertically aligned Optical Stability Platform"). The unit that I reviewed had a plastic tray, with metal internals. Oddly enough, it doesn't look quite like any of the images that you supplied (Teac's site supplied the DV-60 drive image...top view, internal...that I used in my article).

The race to the bottom seems to be on with these transports...and given OEM prices of $4K for the VRDS, one can understand why.
