Onkyo DV-C600 DVD/CD Changer
Introduction The Onkyo DV-C600 is a six-disc CD and DVD changer. Yes, a DVD changer. This multi-featured unit is priced near the middle of its competition: $579.95. Now, if you had a similar reaction to mine, when I was told that I'd be reviewing a DVD changer, you might be thinking: why would I ever want to load six DVDs? I just want to slide a movie in and watch it beginning to end. Well, read on for the pros and cons of this machine. With DTS discs becoming more common, it's important for your player to be DTS compatible. The DV-C600 is DTS ready. (Of course, your receiver must be able to decode DTS. ) The unit also supplies you with advanced ten-bit 27 MHz video D/A conversion (which gives you four times the accuracy of conventional eight-bit, 13. 5 MHz players); gold plated component video output for use with digital TVs; gold ...

Konka KD-1800U DVD Player
Introduction The KD-1800U is a DVD player that has broken the $200.00 price barrier. The unit lists for an extremely affordable $199.00. That's right: just $199.00. And wait, there's more. The KD-1800U contains many of the features found on higher priced players. All kidding aside, for those of you who are not familiar with Konka, the company is a global consumer electronics company based in China and was established in 1980. The company touts products that have been recognized as the "National Best Selling Products" in China and has been granted "The Most Famous Brand of China" while holding 25% of the Chinese TV market. The United States subsidiary is Konka USA, Ltd. Back to our regularly scheduled programming: I've seen the Konka brand from time to time but have shied away from products on account that I didn't believe that the performance would hold-up. Well, the KD-1800U has turned me around. Some of the features ...

Theta DaViD DVD Player
Introduction The DaViD is a highly tricked-out $4,500 high-performance DVD transport built by Theta Digital in Southern California. The DaViD is 19 inches wide by three-and-one-half inches high by 16-and-one-half inches deep (without cables), with a choice of black or silver exterior finish. The faceplate is modern and ornate, featuring milled aluminum extrusions for many of the basic direct access buttons, such as open-close, chapter up-down and power. Theta Digital has been pushing the limits of consumer digital playback since 1987 with its Generation One DAC. Historically, Theta, especially with CD and Laserdisc transports, has modified the best of the OEM market. (OEM refers to the practice of buying the parts of a basic player, i.e. a CD or Laserdisc, and reassembling them with modifications.) The DaViD is no different in that its heart and soul is a Pioneer 404 DVD player. Theta repackages the transport in a new box and deals with technical performance issues that ...

Yamaha DVD-S700 DVD Player
Introduction During the past few years, we've seen the A/V family tree grow and bear more fruit than ever before. Perhaps the most noticeable offspring is DVD. With new titles being born daily and the fall in player prices, how can you resist throwing down a few hundred bones and walking away with one of these babies? One thing that may be stopping you is the "price vs. feature" dilemma. At $799, the Yamaha DVD-S700 is packed full of features that may eliminate the anxiety of raising a home theater system of your own. Read on. The back panel of this unit is clear and concise, with plenty of output options as your system continues to develop and mature. These options include composite video, S-video and component video. The audio output section employs the following outputs: stereo pairs, six-channel discrete, coaxial and optical digital. If you thought you'd have to replace your existing receiver/preamps to take ...

Pioneer DVL-91 LaserDisc / DVD Player
Introduction As largely evidenced by the huge selection of titles at retail mega-outlets such as Tower and Virgin, reports of the Laserdisc's death have been greatly exaggerated. According to Pioneer, who has invested heavily in both Laserdisc hardware and software for the past fifteen years, Laserdiscs will happily coexist with DVD for several more years (how many more is anyone's guess). To that end, Pioneer keeps the passion alive with products such as the Elite DVL-91, a combination LD, DVD and CD player. The Laserdisc portion is essentially identical to Pioneer's Elite CLD-79, part of their current product line. However, the addition of a DVD player turns the DVL-91 into an all-purpose player that should satisfy your optical video playback needs for some time to come. The unit, with its stylish rosewood side panels and elegant, shiny, black Urushi finish, is essentially the same height as any Laserdisc player, but contains a separate tray to ...
