Another great Pioneer product


I've been a follower of Pioneer since my first CD player purchase 10 years ago. I bought it off the shelf as the demo, and never had a single problem with it. Since then, I've filtered out all other brands of electronic audio equipment until I have...

Pioneering Great DVD Technology


Let me just say that although this is the best DVD player I've seen so far, I've only owned 2. And that included this one. :) But that doesn't mean it's great. My first DVD player was a cheap Sanyo that was on as a WalMart special. Although it seemed...

Great player


Looking for a player is though but this one has loads of good thing. Having DTS and Digital Dolby is a must. The sound is really good, the possibility to switch from one to another sound system is interesting. I always wonder the real difference...

Good sound and image

nothing really

THE Pioneer 626D is awesome. I bought it quite sometime ago now. But I have old 1st Generation DVD's that I purchased when I first purchased it and it plays them great. Alot of the newer DVD players will not play them. Some DVD players just sit and...

Looks good on paper, 2 units DOA


We choose the 626d based upon the glowing reviews that it had received, and good range of features. We particularly needed a good Dolby decoder and 2 channel audio output until I upgrade my receiver :-)

great features, good value

never worked, poor support from pioneer

Feature Packed, Great When It Works


Although I'm a devout Sony follower, I did my research before choosing a DVD player, and decided on the Pioneer DV-626D. It appeared to have every feature one could ask for in a DVD player (except for multi-disc playback), and at a great price.

Feature packed, great video and audio, good interface & remote

Build quality questionable

got to have one


now I'm the type of person that love to watch movies at home with my wife. Call it romantic if you( at least she does when she gets one of her movies) will. i am not the type of person that will spend thousands of dollars on a home theater system but...

Great picture and sound what more could you ask for

DVD's are different because of the graphics but it is easly over looked

Product Specifications

Pioneer has long been a leader in digital technologies, and the DV626D represents one of their finest productions. With its advanced Advanced Digital Video Noise Reduction with Gamma Correction, Twin-Wave Laser Pick-up, and built-in Dolby Digital and DTS processors, this DVD player scales new heights of video purity, color accuracy, and sonic fidelity. Dolby Digital (AC-3) Decoder allows you to experience the thrills of today's stunning Hollywood soundtracks right in your family room. Built-in DTS Decoder allows you to decode the fantastic sonic performance of DTS without connecting the player to a DTS-capable A/V receiver. The DV-626D is equipped with Twin-Wave Laser Pickup with a 650nm laser diode for playing DVDs and 780nm diode for playing CDs, Video CDs and CD-Rs. Advanced Digital Video Noise Reduction with Gamma Correction Restores the impact of images from film sources by compensating for the degradation in image quality that normally occurs in the film-to-video transfer process, and a high-quality video encoder allows viewers to tailor picture characteristics to their tastes. Viterbi RF Decoding Process applies a sophisticated parametric statistical analysis to enhance correction of disc data errors caused by fingerprints, dust, and warping, thereby reducing the error rate considerably. 10-bit Video D/A Converter delivers faster video signal processing than conventional methods, minimizing digital artifacts for enhanced digital video quality. 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.
