Product Specifications

SACD (Super Audio CD) is the new reference in audio. DSD technology used ensures an audio quality, which is nearest to the original. The Philips Super Audio CD Player uses Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to deliver superior sound reproduction quality that conveys the musical atmosphere and nuances of a live performance. The SACD1000 preserves the exquisite difference between a Stradivarius and a mere fiddle. It plays SACD, DVD, Video CD, CD-R and CD-RW. This Philips Flagship Multi-channel Super Audio CD redefines high sound resolution with its Dual Laser Pick-up, built-in DSD, AC-3, MPEG2 Decoder (5.1 Output) with Coaxial and Digital Output. Its 5-disc Resume feature allows viewers to pick-up where they left off on their 5 most recently viewed DVD titles. The SACD has a twin power supply. In addition, it has Composite, S-Video and Component Video Connections. Dual Laser Drive provides full compatibility for the most accurate signal reading whatever disc type you're playing - DVD, CD, CDR or CD+RW. All formats perform brilliantly with dual laser technology. Perfect Still picture and Zoom features ensure pause and zoom in on every detail without losing picture quality.
