Onkyo DV-SP406 DVD Player


If you're convinced DVD is still the way to go then the DV-SP406 doesn't disappoint.

The DV-SP406's smooth, assured pictures, solid range of connections and healthy format support make it a superb choice if you’re buying on a budget – provided you can tolerate the fiddly remote and lacklustre build quality. It won’t be long before you...

Onkyo DV-SP406 review


May lack showroom allure but in use the '406 redeems itself spectacularly

Fine upscaled images, with motion handled particularly well ; useful USB input

Sound lacks body ; terrible remote, very small display

Very impressive pictures at the price: do you need any more from a budget player?

Onkyo DV-SP406 review


Will this buff up your DVD collection?

Good upscaling ; Natural colour reproduction

Flimsy build ; Tiny display

Although it's not the best DVD player ever built, the Onkyo offers great value for money and some pretty good pictures as well

Thankfully there is. On the front is a USB port, which lets you play back MP3, WMA, DivX and JPEG files from a flash memory drive, while the well stocked rear panel includes both optical and coaxial digital audio outputs and an HDMI output, of course....

USB port, terrific picture and sound quality, good media support

Dull design, few standout features, fiddly remote

Onkyo not as promised!


Internet posted this DVD player as region-free, meaning it could play DVD's from all countries. Did not mention that this only applies in Europe. Plays ONLY those DVD's manufactured in Region 1. Plan to keep it anyway for the pluses in picture quality,...

Product Specifications

In the fast-paced world of home entertainment, you are faced with a myriad of choices. More often than not, more choices than you really want to make. If you're after a playback component that's going to take care of your core entertainment needs DVD Video, music CDs, and your computer based music and video files then the DV-SP406 DVD/CD/MP3 player makes good sense.
