Pioneer Crafting at its Best

 

DTS decoding for both laserdiscs and DVDs. Component video output.

The price is the only con. But come on, its a laserdisc player.

GREAT Laser Player

 

Since I collect laser discs and my old machine bit the dust after 15 years I invested in this combo player, and am not sorry that I did. The picture is dramatic crystal clear with no flaking or speckling, dramatic sound compared to the old machine and...

Crystal clear picture, super sound, S-Video hookup

Noisy at startup and when changing sides on laser discs, miniscule remote buttons

Do you really need Lasersdisc?

 

I am a Star Wars nut and I really do not like VHS tapes, so the only thing I could watch Star Wars in digital format is through Lasersdisc.

Plays Laserdisc and DVD and CD.

Big unit, noisy when playing.

I purchased this LD/DVD player to replace my aging and crippled LD player. Since I own almost 100 LDs and didn't want to buy them all over again on DVD since there isn't too much of a quality difference, I was in the market for an LD player. Not...

A Very Versatile Machine

 

Bought this product as I need a DVD player to complete a home theatre package for my new home. Choose this model as I thought it might be handy to be able to play LDs, as I thought there still might be a chance that I'll have to watch LDs. Turned out...

If, like me, you prefer the qualify of LD over tape, you probably are running into the same problem people with large collections of old vinyl records ran into with the coming of CDs. Like CDs vs LPs, DVDs offer great quality and a much more compact...

the best there is

 

Pioneer's DVL-919 is one of the few laserdisc (LD) players available to hard core videophiles, some of whom still prefer the analog-video format to DVD's compressed digital video. Fortunately, the DVL-919 accommodates both formats. If you're searching...

Product Specifications

Pioneer Electronics, the acknowledged leader in optical disc technology, introduces a third generation DVD/LD player - DVL-919, which proves to be the perfect transition product for movie enthusiasts everywhere. The DVL-919's new video circuitry, boasts improved video performance for DVD, due to a 10-bit video processing LSI (Large Scale Integrated Circuit). The DVD format's 8-Bit video information is requantized into 10 bits for more accurate processing - resulting in fewer digital artifacts. This Pioneer-developed video LSI combines, on a single chip, the MPEG2 decoder, 10-bit video processor, 10-bit DAC, NTSC encoder and audio decoder. Finally, to further the video clarity, the DVL-919 also features component video outputs, which provide the purest form of video available in any consumer video product to date. To compensate for physical flaws in the software, such as disc flatness and hole centering, Pioneer has developed a "ViterBi" decoding circuit. This proprietary circuit enables reading accuracy to be improved by as much as 100 times. As further enhancement to the home theater experience, the DVL-919 utilizes a Dolby Laboratories approved technology developed by SRS called TruSurround (Virtual Dolby Surround). With TruSurround technology, realistic 3D sound imaging is created from only two loudspeakers, enabling specific sounds to appear to come from any point surrounding a listener. The DVL-919 offers superior audio performance, with the addition of both coaxial and optical Dolby Digital/DTS audio outputs, providing complete compatibility with all AC-3/DTS multi-channel decoding software and equipment. For the highest quality playback, the DVL-919 provides ultra-high audio quality from a 24-bit digital-to-analog conversion system capable of decoding DVD stereo audio tracks using high sampling rates up to 96 kHz. The DVL-919 also employs Pioneer's built-in Hi-Bit processor to deliver improved signal resolution and extremely low noise from standard 16-bit audio CDs.
