Panasonic DMR-E30 DVD Video Recorder
Introduction The arrival of affordable DVD recorders – and certainly their acceptance – has been delayed by that good old audio industry phenomenon, a format war. There are no less than four different recordable DVD formats, with apparently very little difference between them. It’s even quite difficult to tell them apart, as several have very similar names. A big consideration for many people (it certainly would be for me, if I were considering buying one of these units) would be compatibility with other players. I want to be able to record my home movies on a DVD in the machine, finalize it (turning it into a DVD-Video disc), send them to friends and know that they will play back on their regular DVD player. The format most likely to succeed in this respect in the minds of many pundits is DVD-R, which is also used by the Pioneer SuperDrive CD/DVD burners provided in Apple ...

NAD T 571 DVD/CD/MP3 Changer
Introduction The choices for high-performance gear in the moderate price range have drastically improved in recent years. By improving on parts and build quality and giving us practical features that make sense yet cost less, manufacturers are making it easier to improve our systems without breaking the bank. With a little knowledge, you can garner a component that will meet your budget and exceed performance requirements, yet not leave you lacking in the feature category, all for a reasonable price. One component worthy of consideration is the NAD T 571 five disc DVD/CD/MP3 changer. The T 571 is 17-3/16 inches wide, 4-7/16 inches high, and 16-3/16 inches deep, with a MSRP of $799.00. The T 571 will play DVDs and CDs, as well as CD-RWs and CD-Rs. It will even decode MP-3 music files on either of the recordable CD formats. It also can deal with a mix of DVDs and CDs, as well ...

Camelot Roundtable Mk.2 DVD Player
Introduction The Camelot Technology RoundTable Mk.2 is a 24-bit/192 kHz progressive scan DVD player, with a host of audio and video features, that sells for $4,995. Camelot offers a factory upgrade path for the original RoundTable priced at $995 plus $25 return shipping fee, equaling the price as the factory Mk.2 version. The Mk.2 Roundtable is packaged identically to the original (reviewed by Jerry Del Colliano on in the October 2000 issue), measuring 17 inches wide, 12 inches deep and three-and-one-half inches in height. In fact, the only way you can physically tell the difference between the two is the slight yet distinctive clicking sound from the Mk.2’s DACs while sampling a CD or DVD. For those who are used to mass-market DVD players, this unit is sure to tickle your fancy. The RoundTable Mk.2 has a ruggedly built steel chassis, finished in black and accentuated by a one-quarter-inch thick aluminum faceplate, a stark and ...

Sampo DVE-611 DVD Player
Introduction I had a very specific purpose in mind when I bought this inexpensive ($119) DVD player, but it turns out to be even more interesting than I expected. There are plenty of low-cost DVD players on the market: these days you can even get them for less than $100. But there are few like this. If you are a world traveler like myself (ahem), then you will probably be as frustrated as I am with the difference in standards around the world. Generally, the way it’s done in North America is quite different to the way it’s done in Europe. More than occasionally, the North American way is unlike anywhere else in the world. Take cell phones, for example. You can take your GSM phone almost anywhere in the world and use it – and keep your regular phone number. Or buy a little plug-in SIM card and suddenly you have a local number ...

Proceed PMDT Modular DVD Transport and PVP Video Processor
Introduction The Proceed PMDT is a $5,995 modular DVD-Video transport and video processor built by Madrigal, the parent company of brands like Mark Levinson, Madrigal Imaging, Revel and Audio Access. Unlike nearly all commercially successful high end DVD-Video players, the Proceed PMDT as a transport is built from the ground up for performance, not a repackaged Japanese OEM player with a bunch of tweaks made under the hood. The advantage of such an approach is complete freedom to deliver amazing functionality. The disadvantage is, as DVD-Video has developed into the most successful AV technology ever (that’s right more successful than CD) the technological road has been far from smooth including DVD authoring issues, disc reading issues as well as the looming DVD-Audio format to consider. To date, the Proceed PMDT attacks the challenge of reproducing DVD-video discs at the highest level with nearly no competition other than Meridian’s $16,000 800 DVD machine. There are three key areas ...
