Why spend more for a basic DVD player?

 

The Samsung DVD-M101 has everything you need in a DVD player. The only reason to spend more would be to get a Progressive-scan model for those with a high-definition television set.

Affordable & works well

Remote control layout, performance

Product Specifications

The Samsung DVD-M101 DVD player is an affordably priced model that features state-of-the-art composite-video outputs, digital compatibility, and a slim design. The player's Spatializer N-2-2 sound circuit simulates surround sound through your TV or stereo speakers, while its 96 kHz/24-bit audio converters deliver pristine audio quality from DVDs and CDs. The back-panel Toslink optical terminal passes a 96 kHz/24-bit audio stream for use with the latest high-end audio recordings (though be aware that your receiver must be able to decode your 96 kHz recordings if you use a digital connection there). The Samsung DVDM101 DVD player connects to your stereo or home-theater sound system to deliver outstandingly real theatrical sound when playing DVD movies. The DVDM101 has Dolby Digital and DTS audio outputs to work with your compatible home-theater receiver. The DVD-M101 includes left/right analog-audio outputs for compatibility with Dolby Pro Logic receivers and, in case you don't have a receiver yet, TV inputs. This unit also supports both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel formats through its digital outputs for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver or an external digital-to-analog converter (DAC). In the video realm, the M101's 10-bit video DAC ensures precision playback of high-resolution DVD signals. Analog video components are also selected to optimize performance. Composite-video output terminals provide the optimum connection between the DVD-M101 and an advanced direct-view or projection TV system. The unit also offers standard component- and S-video outputs.
