Harman Kardon DVD 31 DVD-Audio/Video Player

 

Up until this point I haven't discussed video performance at all (deliberately; this is, after all, an "On HiFi" review). The ridiculously inexpensive Panasonic DVD-S27 clobbers my old Kenwood DV/S700, which is simply proof that today you don't have to...

If you want to dip your toes into the world of DVD-Audio for some fun-filled multichannel-music playback, and also have a well-built, well-designed player that will play CDs, DVD-Videos and other formats remarkably well, the Harman Kardon DVD 31 will...

Product Specifications

The DVD 31 is a versatile DVD audio/video player engineered for unsurpassed video and audio performance. It offers outstanding value as one of the most attractively priced DVD audio/video players on the market to offer complete audio bass-management capabilities. The DVD 31 achieves a remarkable new level of progressive-scan video playback when used with a compatible display device, thanks to its leading-edge digital video processing that uses pixel-by-pixel processing to upconvert images to progressive-scan component video output, rather than the line-by-line upconversion employed by conventional DVD players. The pixel-by-pixel reconstruction is accomplished by an integrated digital signal processor that provides vastly superior picture quality compared to line-by-line progressive-scan methods, yielding smoother, more realistic images with exceptional detail and contrast.
