I haven't been able to find an online manual to the new Onkyo DV-SP506. However, after reading the manuals to the 504 and 706, I notice that the only video manipulation features it has are switchable black level and adjustable sharpness and brightness. Those players do not include adjustments for contrast, tint, color level, and gamma. However, the 58 includes all of the above, except switchable black level, and with the rest of the 58's options it is fairly easy to work around that. So even if the Onkyo DV-SP506 has analog audio as good as the 58, its video options are limited. Therefore, I still say spend the extra $50 and get a 58 from Vanns. It looks like the 58 comes out on top once again. Long live the Pioneer Elite DV-58AV and its thread here at AVS!
