Very good player with good features


I purchased this DVD player with a receiver and speaker combo and it has proved to be an excellent buy. The progressive scan component output works perfectly with my widescreen Samsung television. Very lifelike picture with no noticeable distortion.

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.
