Pioneer DV-525 DVD Players


I bought the Pioneer DV 525 in 2000 because we were moving out of the US and wanted a dual voltage, region free DVD player. It was terrifically expensive at the time, I think $450. Although we only ever used it as a DVD player, never used any of the...

Pioneer DV-525 DVD Players


This unit has been a dream to own. It has surpassed my wildest imagination on some of the fuctions it has been able to perform. When I purchased this unit I was just as yellow about DVD's as the next person. The purpose for me buying this unit was more...

Pioneer DV-525 DVD Players


This is one of the greatest mid-range DVD Players ever created by Pioneer. Not even the newer Pioneer models today could hold a candle to this one. It has pin-sharp picture quality when compared to newer Pioneer DV-355(which I own) and can be also a...

Pioneer DV-525 DVD Player

Pioneer has long been the leading force behind laser discs and is now a strong contender in DVD players. The DV-525's picture quality is whistle clean and palpable, in part due to Pioneer's own Twin Wave Laser and Viter-Bi RF Decoding Process that...

Consider at right price, but look around


I purchased one of these last March for my in-laws and between us (them using it at home, I using it every time I hang out over there) it has been a fine machine, though I must admit, when I purchased my own DVD player this summer, I bought a Toshiba,...

Outputs, DVD movie quality
