Pioneer DV-525 DVD Players

 

I bought the Pioneer DV 525 in 2000 because we were moving out of the US and wanted a dual voltage, region free DVD player. It was terrifically expensive at the time, I think $450. Although we only ever used it as a DVD player, never used any of the...

This unit has been a dream to own. It has surpassed my wildest imagination on some of the fuctions it has been able to perform. When I purchased this unit I was just as yellow about DVD's as the next person. The purpose for me buying this unit was more...

This is one of the greatest mid-range DVD Players ever created by Pioneer. Not even the newer Pioneer models today could hold a candle to this one. It has pin-sharp picture quality when compared to newer Pioneer DV-355(which I own) and can be also a...

Worked great when I first got it, however at time went on, I began noticing certain DVD's not playing in the machine. Wasted a lot of time exchanging DVD's thinking I had defective DVD's, writing lots of e-mails to studios who produced the DVD. Had...

Pioneer has long been the leading force behind laser discs and is now a strong contender in DVD players. The DV-525's picture quality is whistle clean and palpable, in part due to Pioneer's own Twin Wave Laser and Viter-Bi RF Decoding Process that...

Consider at right price, but look around

 

I purchased one of these last March for my in-laws and between us (them using it at home, I using it every time I hang out over there) it has been a fine machine, though I must admit, when I purchased my own DVD player this summer, I bought a Toshiba,...

Outputs, DVD movie quality

Audio CD quality (for me anyway), flimsy tray and general build quality, price -- there seem to be cheaper models of equal quality

I finally got around to hooking this up and what an idiot I was for not doing it sooner! First things first though:

Easy as pie!

Product Specifications

Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) is hot. And Pioneer's DV-525 player is a popular choice. With good reasons. For one, the 96KHz/24 bit digital output delivers superior-fidelity from DVD discs. For another, the DTS digital output means the ultimate in theater sound, along with a Resume Function that lets you stop a movie and then resume playback where you left off. You also have a Component Video Output that brings you enhanced picture quality on component-compatible TVs. An auto-gain level adjustment cuts the disc-jitters. And it has a good memory - the DV-525 recalls set-up conditions (language, subtitle, aspect ratio and mode) for up to 15 discs. When connected to a receiver or amplifier with a Dolby Digital or DTS decoder through either the optical or coaxial digital outputs, you can enjoy the phenomenal experience of video through five discrete full range channels, whether for stunning sound effects or crystal clear dialogue. 10-bit Video D/A Converter delivers faster video signal processing than conventional methods, minimizing digital artifacts for enhanced digital video quality. Twin-Wave Laser Pickup Equipped with a 650nm laser diode for playing DVDs and 780nm diode for playing CDs, Video CDs and CD-Rs. Bit-Rate Meter provides a display of the average bit-rate being used to decode the video from scene to scene, giving you an quantifiable indication of the effort put into the mastering process. Serious moviephiles will enjoy using it to compare transfers of various films. Multiple Viewing Angle Capability gives you the ability to select viewing from various camera angles on DVDs encoded with the feature. Currently it is seen mostly on informational productions. DVD A-B Repeat allows you to program a "start" and "end" to a DVD segment that you choose, and continuously repeat as you determine. It's great for trying to learn those old Clapton licks, or using with instructional videos.
