Worked great for the first three months...


Easy to move around from one place to another, very compact and easy to use.

Not a good choice for long-term use.

DVD on the move.


I purchased my Aiwa XD-DV170 DVD player a few weeks ago, and have loved it since I opened the box. The unit itself is smaller than many books I've read. It has all the features of my full size DVD player (and even some extras). I use mine in the...

Compact size, lightweight, user friendly, sturdy design.

DC adapter sold separately for $30.00. The remote control could be smaller.

Bad experience with AIWA


I suppose some of this is my fault. Like the fact that I waited too long to return the unit or at least get warranty repair in time. From the beginning I had trouble with the unit playing many of my compact discs. It would take about 30-45 seconds...

Small Size

Trouble playing CD's, Load time too long, quit working completely after 3 months.

Great for the bedroom


The XD-DV170 is a tad disappointing compared with it's big brother the XD-DV370... Although both of them took a while to load the DVD/CD, it is understandable for the XD-DV370 since it supports MP3s while the XD-DV170 doesn't.... Which is why it...

Small, great video, very light, portable

Problems playing with VCD, huge remote, Slow to start, resume mode not consistent

Product Specifications

For those looking for a multi-purpose player, AIWA offers the new XD-DV170, a small, lightweight player that offers AC/DC operation. The unit is ideal for consumers who might want a player that's easily moved from one TV to another, or from one house to another - a vacation home, for example. What's more, the DC power option allows the unit to be used in a vehicle using an external monitor. Available as an option is an adapter to power the unit thorough a car's accessory power outlet. The XD-DV170 plays DVDs, CDs, CD-R/RWs and VCDs. It includes a 96kHz/24-bit audio D/A converter and a 10-bit video D/A converter. There's an optical digital output (Dolby Digital/DTS), one set of analog RCA outputs, plus one S-Video and one composite video output. The player provides forward and reverse search at X2, X8 and X32 speeds, forward slow play at 1/2, 1/5 and 1/30 normal speed and reverse slow play at 1/2 and 1/15 normal speed. Other features include Q Surround for creating surround sound effects from two audio channels, multi-language on-screen display and a remote control.
