In the DVD405, the center channel mic is optional, and it uses a 3-megapixel CCD. It will ship in February for $900. The DVD305 essentially takes the spec spot in the lineup now held by this year's DVD403 and is slated to ship next month for $700.
We don't expect much from the two least-expensive models, the DVD205 and DVD105, because (as we've seen in the past) their 1-megapixel and 680,000-pixel sensors are too low-resolution to deliver the data necessary for decent compressed MPEG-2 footage. But if you want to give 'em a shot, they'll be $600 and $700 when they ship next month.
