Kenwood DV4070 DVD-A/V Player
Introduction DVD-Audio is the most hyped new technology in audio since the compact disc. Now Kenwood is out with one of the first DVD-Audio/DVD-Video players on the market with the $1,000 DV4070. The DV4070 is a five-disc changer that will play nearly all of the media on the market right now including compact discs, CD-Video, DVD-Video and the new DVD-Audio format. However, it will not play DVD-Audio’s competing format, SACD. Like most changers, the DV4070 comes equipped with all of the bells and whistles that you’d expect from a mass market DVD player. These include instant access to the disc tray while a disc is spinning, a slick on-screen interface, an ergonomically correct remote and even a headphone jack for late-night sessions. The DV4070 is the standard 17 inches wide and will fit on a shelf in a rack-mounted system. About DVD-Audio The DVD-Audio format is specifically designed to utilize the large-scale storage capacity of ...

Camelot Roundtable DVD Player
Introduction The Camelot Technology Roundtable is a progressive output DVD player designed for the true audio and video enthusiast who appreciates cutting-edge gadgetry and is willing to invest in a high-performance front end for their music and theater system. The $3,999 Roundtable is a progressive scan DVD player packed with all of Camelot Technology's best tricks, including an internal digital line doubler, 24/96 up-conversion, Camelot's Dragon 5.1 jitter reduction for 5.1 AC3, DTS and other digital formats, Camelot's powered S-Video cable technology and more. The concept behind the Camelot Roundtable was to build a DVD player for the enthusiast who has a mid-to-high-end audio system and a video system that includes a TV that can accept progressive inputs.

Meridian 800 CD/DVD-A/V Player
Introduction Meridian’s 800 is their flagship source component, responsible for reference level playback of compact discs, DVD-Video discs, DVD-Audio discs and beyond. The 800, like its AV preamp brother, the Meridian 861, is vastly configurable and highly programmable, allowing the end user to elicit incredible playback feats with true ease. Pricing starts at $19,440 for a basic CD/DVD transport, while a fully loaded unit complete with 5.1 analog outputs, Meridian’s proprietary digital output and an internal video processor weighs in closer to $25,000. Music lovers dedicated to stereo-only playback can use the 800 as a CD player and/or high-performance audio preamp that drives the owner’s existing high-end stereo amplifier(s) and speakers. Alternatively, the 800 can be directly and digitally connected to Meridian’s cutting edge digital speakers. If you subscribe to the less is more theory, these configuration options are as good as it gets, and if you are simplifying a stereo system, you can sell off ...

Sony DVP-S3000 DVD Player
Introduction Now that the huge media hype over DVD has waned a bit and we are seeing an array of hardware options and plenty of software, it's time to take this exciting new format very seriously. It's no longer a matter of when is it going to be the best time to buy a DVD player, but rather which one is the best buy for you.

Featuring a 10-bit video digital-to analog converter, an exclusive MPEG-2 decoder and a Dual Discrete optical pickup, the DVP-S3000 will appeal to consumers looking for high quality audio-video performance on a modest budget.

Sensory Science DVS3000 DVD Player
Introduction This DVD player/Dolby Digital receiver combo offers an integrated all-in-one box solution offered at a list price of $499.99. When I first heard of the DVS3000, and was subsequently assigned to review the product, I thought that it was just a matter of time before we started seeing this type of unit arriving on the home theater scene. I wondered what would be next: mini-stack/executive-style systems? Probably. For now, we'll concentrate on present-day activities involving the DVS3000, also known as Power3. To begin by describing a few of its basic features, the DVS3000's integrated receiver offers a 200-watt amplifier section, which breaks down to 40 watts per channel. The amplifier has a frequency response rating of 10 Hz - 20 kHz, with a signal to noise ratio of 72 dB, with total harmonic distortion of 0.07%. As far as audio processing goes, the DVS3000 delivers 24-bit/96 kHz playback and a Dolby Digital ...
