A DVD Changer for the Rest of Us


My first DVD player was a Panasonic DVD-CV52 5-disc changer. It taught me a lot about what to avoid in a DVD player. When it died a mere three months after the manufacturer’s warranty expired, I was ticked, but I ...

Pulls double duty as a DVD player and CD changer. Easy to use controls.

Lousy MP3, JPG functionality. Not as feature-rich as the Panasonic.

Product Specifications

The SD-2815 features ColorStream Component Video Outputs which allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped TV. When this connection is utilized, typical NTSC artifacts - like video noise and dot crawl - are virtually eliminated, resulting in a low-noise, highly detailed picture with unequaled color purity. Grayscale in video is measured and tracked on a scale of 0 (black) to 100 (white) IRE units. In NTSC video we have traditionally assigned the 7.5 IRE value as being the black cutoff in a picture. The EXPANDED mode in the "Video Black Level Setting" menu enables Toshiba DVD players to output a 0 IRE signal for richer, deeper black tones in every image. Parallel Video Output lets you connect your Toshiba DVD player via Composite, S-Video, and/or Interlaced Component Video Outputs and watch simultaneous images from each connected TV. Ideal for multi-room applications. Coaxial & Optical TosLink Digital Audio Output sends the audio signal to an audio/video receiver in its digital form allowing access to the Dolby Digital /DTS track encoded on the DVD disc. MP3 Audio Compatibility expands the players' functionality to include playback of custom music collections encoded via MP3 digital audio format onto CD-R or CD-RW media. 3-D Virtual Surround Sound provides a simulated surround sound effect from sources that contain only a stereo soundtrack. Convenient when playing older DVD films or for use with home theaters not equipped with multi-channel playback compatibility. Front Panel Operation offers full player menu navigation via front panel controls. Lets the user operate the player when the remote has been misplaced or unavailable. Picture Zoom allows you to select an area of the picture you want to zoom in on and magnify. Enhanced digital processing during moving video or freeze-frame playback produces superior color fidelity and resolution, even when you're zoomed in. Also can be used to expand letter-box-only films to increase the viewable area on-screen. The SD-2815 allows up to 9 digital 'bookmarks' to save favorite locations/scenes on discs loaded inside the player. The bookmark feature provides quick access to those scenes the user wants to view again, or demonstrate to friends.
