You'll Love It...

 

Great picture --- color, crisp resolution. Remote is easy.

As with any DVD player, makes me long for a wide screen TV.

I'm...Just...Not...Sure...

 

I've had a Pioneer laserdisc player when AC-3 had just came out, and went the AC-3 route. since my stereo didn't have "the new" digital coax to receieve Dolby Digital, I didn't want to start upgrading my system. Well, that stereo went into stereo...

Slim, Eye Catching, Progressive Scan, MP3, VCD, Sound Quality, Lots of picture tweaks, Silver

Remote, ?Bad Progressive Scan?,

Good all-around player

 

I tracked a Pioneer DV-444 down at the local Good Guys store here in California, and am glad I did! I picked it up for about $220 (not bad at all). It was their last one too.

Sleek look, plays MP3s, Progressive scan, fast loading, plays burned discs

May be hard to find...it's not being produced anymore, has trouble with SVCDs

Product Specifications

The DV-444 offers truly superior performance in a super-slim package. Progressive scan output, high-end error correction and tracking, and separate audio and video circuits just begin to tell the story. This machine was engineered and built for demanding AV enthusiasts who want a lot, in a little space. So sleek and stylish it will work anywhere - thanks to the drive mechanism, which has been reduced in size to 5.5 cm height! Get a kick out of playing MP3 files and find your favorite songs through the easy file navigation function shown on-screen. The latest technology is included, like SRS TruSurround, which creates a virtual sound field to give the impression of surround sound. Create one of the slimmest Digital Home Cinema combinations by combining this unit with the ultra-slim VSX-C300 A/V receiver and the matching S-V50-K or S-V50-QL Home Cinema Speaker set.
