Sony’s new DVD Style3 player (also known as the DVD Style Cube) features a slim shape, a slot loading disc mechanism and can be operated vertically, horizontally or mounted on a wall. This allows for maximum space savings and flexibility in small dorm rooms, bedrooms and in offices.

This new DVD player features the Precision Drive2 System, a new tilt mechanism providing fast and accurate tracking and playback of DVDs. This system allows viewers to watch their favorite DVDs despite imperfections or physical flaws on some discs.

Another feature is the unit's TV Virtual Surround Sound circuitry. Benefiting non-home theater users, this feature optimizes the sound capabilities of standard TV speakers and offers various surround modes. These modes include "dynamic," "wide," "standard" and "night" (for sound reduction of loud passages during late hours.) The surround sound circuitry also creates a virtual center channel for clearer dialogue reception.

Other features of the Style3 player include Advanced SmoothScan Picture Search for seamless transitions between video frames; and Custom Parental Control, which prohibits access to discs with a personalized code, even if the disc does not carry a Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) rating.

The Block Noise Reduction feature suppresses vertical edge distortions for a smoother, more natural picture. And, the CD-R/CD-RW audio playback capability allows the consumer to play their discs from a CD burner.

To maximize the sound reproduction of the new DVD Style3 player, an optional matching speaker package (SA-F21), with right and left front speakers and a subwoofer, is now available for less than $200.

Offered in two colors, silver or black, the Style" player is now available at retailers for around $300.
