Eye with caution.


I have my player for about 2 years now and I can tell you the in's and out's about it. On the in side, it has a built in dolby digital decoder, but if your receiver has coaxial or optical cable input you don't have to because all the sound is coming...

Built in decoder, coaxial, optical cable. Even plays mp3.

Freeze, or skip in some movies.

A friend of mine asked me to come and check out his new DVD player. He had just bought the Hitachi DVP505U 2000 Model.
