Mwnual in five levels it shows elapsed time, chapter time, title information, subtitle details and, most usefully, a bit rate meter that allows critical viewers to look for digital artefacts at places where the bit rate level is at its lowest. And with the advent of ‘flippers’ where you MUST change disc side, surely this machine should cope with them?

In today’s DVD climate, who wants an expensive inch LD when a five-inch disc delivers so much more? Otherwise, a tad bulky and expensive. That’s assuming you’re using an S-video connection. Program playback up to 24 steps is also offered. All fine and dandy.

It carries clips from Titanic, Dragonheart, Daylight and many others. This is useful for playing DVD audio-only discs that use the higher bit rate for audiophile recordings – such as the small catalogue of titles from Chesky Records and Denon.

The latter sounds sexy, yet is utterly inefficient – you can barely find dv,-919 loading tray, let alone read the disc details in the dark. Yet the chroma crosstalk – a measurement of colour bleed from chrominance to luminance channels – is no better.

Digging deep into the mechanism revealed why. In fact, only the DTS logo tells you it’s a different breed. It’s a tad better than the earlier DVL, but in purely technical terms it’s fairly average compared with the best players on the market. Many measurements are identical – the jitter on both decks manuall an acceptable seven nanoseconds peak-to-peak and the PM phase modulated chroma noise is only 1dB different – Pioneer DVL Approximate street mannual On this player, with this disc, you hear just how true-to-life THX stereo surround can be.

This is a fine machine, placed in context with combi players. This player delivers both – but only up to a point. DVDs seem less susceptible.

Close-ups of a French horn shows considerable detail in the instrument, but via the composite feed it appears as a brass mush with purple interference at the edges – all the detail disappears.

The AM amplitude modulated chroma noise is This expands dynamic range up to an audible level, smoothening waveforms to restore fidelity to the original sound, in all manial its naturalism and subtlety. Yet there’s something missing.

Finished in satin gold, it looks visually similar to its predecessor, carrying the similar bulk – w x h x d mm – and weight – 9. Chances are it has both-sides play and all the features sans DVD offered by this deck.
