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 ...

Toshiba SD-2108 DVD Player
Introduction Having waited out the first generation of DVD players to pass through the market, the $599 Toshiba SD-2108 is the first DVD player that has found its way into my home theater. After all the hype that accompanied the launch of DVD, I can say with confidence that the SD-2108 has fulfilled - even surpassed my expectations of the new format. Providing a DTS output, ColorStream component video outputs, one S-video, one composite video and one component video output, the SD-2108 is ready to mate with even the most demanding video applications. Audio connections include both Toslink, and coaxial digital outputs as well as two pairs of analog audio outputs. Before I get to the performance of the SD-2108, let me stroke the good people at Toshiba for designing a well thought out, intuitive and responsive remote that made using the player an absolute joy. I particularly enjoyed the 2X, 8X, and 30X ...

California Audio Labs CL-20 DVD/CD Player
Introduction "California, a profit on the burning shore"....... Estimated Profit, Grateful Dead. Like that song of wisdom and spiritual fulfillment coming to fruition, the California Audio Labs CL-20 DVD/CD player is a flier into the promise of what the digital audio and video medium is capable of today and a good measure of what we can expect as the technology matures into the future. Capable of processing 24/96 DVD audio, the CL-20 gave me my first extended exposure to what this new medium is all about......about to turn 44.1kHZ into the likes of a faded childhood nightmare. The CL-20 has HDCD processing, DAC outputs at 96, 48 and 44.1kHz. Other outputs include two Dolby Digital AC-3 5.1, two 24bit/96kHz PCM digital audio, coax and AES/EBU and RS-232 digital interface for future software upgrades. Video outputs are composite and S-video. Well constructed and fairly massive at 20 lbs. the CL-20 cuts a pretty clean profile. The ...

Sony DVP-S7700 DVD Player
Introduction The Sony DVP-S7700 is a $1,400 DVD player that features DTS and AC3 audio, as well as component video outputs to feed a high-performance AV playback system. A good friend of mine who is a manufacturer in the high-end home electronics industry put it well when he said, "With the quality of DVD players coming out of Japan under $2,000, why should you spend $5,000 on some tweaked-out machine?" After spending time evaluating the Sony DVP-S7700, I am starting to agree with him. The front panel of the 7700 is pleasantly devoid of the overabundant buttons and controls typically found on a mass market DVD player. The main panel folds open with an ease and sex appeal that is normally reserved for B&O. After the front panel folds down, the slender CD/DVD tray smoothly opens for you to insert your source material. You’ll find an On/Off switch, a useful headphone jack and volume control, ...
