Once great, now trash

 

I usually prefer Sony brands to others. When I went shopping for a DVD player I needed one with AC3 decoding (5.1 ch surround) built in to send to my stereo receiver. This player has always been problematic playing back disks. A few years ago we moved ...

SONY DVP NS400D

 

We bought this DVD player a little over a year ago with a complete Sony surround sound system. We loved it. It worked great! And then it didn't work at all. Every DVD we put in it resulted in the "No Disc" message. I took it to our local...

Great DVD Player with Dolby 5.1 decoder

Broke after 1 year of use.

Great DVD Player for the price

 

Even though I didn't buy this player (it was gotten for me as a gift), I must say that it is a great bargain. If I didn't know better, I would think that it cost 3 times as much as it does. At some level, all DVD players are alike -- hey, they all...

Affordable, easy to use, many features.

Newer units (upgrades?) are now available.

User-friendly controls. Plays CD-R/CD-RW. Awesome SmoothScan.

Not so friendly power button on console. Expensive.

Excellent Bargain

 

I bought this from Circuit City recently after spending a year or more doing casual research about DVD players. The prices have been too high for my tastes, even though I'm sure this medium is here to stay. I'm glad I waited until now to buy one.

Product Specifications

The Sony DVP-NS400D bring digital video pictures to you that approach studio master tape quality. Component digital coding keeps colors brighter and more vivid. Horizontal resolution of more than 500 lines means exceptional rendering of fine picture detail. And the video signal-to-noise ratio is so impressive that it all but eliminates snow. Block noise reduction controls and reduces the appearance of blocked portions of video due to fast moving video scenes such as running water, heavy rain, or leaves on a tree, that MPEG 2 has a difficult time recreating with full detail. Sony DVD Players are known for their phenomenal ability to track disks that are warped, off-center, dusty or otherwise less than perfect. And now Sony players are even better. Providing an improved mechanism for reading DVD disks that are in less than perfect condition, Precision Drive 2 improves over last years Precision Drive to further eliminate errors in playback due to imperfect, scratched or warped DVD disks. And it is also CD-R/RW compatible. DVD delivers not only fabulous pictures, but also fantastic sound. You'll thrill to five separate channels of digital-quality sound, plus a special "0.1 " channel just for bass. To take advantage, every Sony home DVD Player features a coaxial as well as an optical digital output - to present a Dolby Digital bit stream directly to your AV Receiver. The Sony DVP-NS400D has a built-in Dolby Digital 5.1-channel decoder that delivers surround sound with superior dynamics and frequency response. Also provides the adjustments needed to match the sound to your listening room. Connects to an A/V Receiver with 5.1-channel analog inputs. The Sony DVP-NS400D has a built-in Dolby Digital 5.1-channel decoder. But unlike many other players, it also includes the all-important speaker setup controls. So you can match the Dolby Digital sound to your speakers and your room. And only Sony offers the Digital Cinema Sound" system. It allows you to enjoy ideal theater sound even when you don't have ideal speaker placement. So fire up your audio system. Sit back. And prepare to be blown away. What is the ultimate reference for movie theater sound? It's the Hollywood dubbing stage - where directors go to mix, evaluate and approve a movie's final sound tracks. Now precisely this sound has been brought home, courtesy of Sony's Digital Cinema Sound system. These digitally recreated acoustic environments are based on actual measurements made at top dubbing stages in Hollywood. Which means that Sony receivers make your movies sound exactly the way they were meant to be heard! And this technology is easy to access, thanks to direct-select front panel buttons.
