Panasonic DVD-RV32 review:


Inexpensive; solid performance; excellent MP3 and WMA support; quick reverse; 4:3 Zoom mode; full-function remote.

Poor anamorphic down-conversion.

Panasonic DVD RV32


At the time it was released, it was a high end product

Product Specifications

Watching DVDs, you can count on seeing a crystal-clear picture on every disc. The DVD-RV32's twin laser pickup flawlessly plays through the microscopic disc defects and layer changes that often cause budget players to stumble. If you're not a fan of wide screen movies, you can use the 4:3 TV Zoom feature to expand a letterbox movie to fill up more of a regular 4:3 TV screen. For full DVD impact, you can connect the player's optical digital output to a compatible Dolby Digital receiver for 5.1-channel surround sound. If you haven't put together a home theater system yet, Panasonic's Advanced Virtual Surround Sound simulates a surround effect, using just a pair of speakers of your TV or stereo system.
