Sony NS955 DVD Player

3. First Look

The retail package includes the unit, the remote control, the Audio and Video cables, the manuals and a new pack of batteries for the remote control. The device itself is slim and sleek with a very good quality aluminum chassis and a handsome design that will easily fit in with any modern or classic decor.

The device we tested was in black finish but it is also available in silver.

On the left hand side of the front panel are clearly marked all the supported formats that the device is capable of handling. The Super Audio CD indicator lights up when we play a HD (High Density) layer on SACD’'s or if there is no disk inserted, while the multi channel indicator lights up when we play a disk that contains multiple audio signal channels or again no disk is inserted.

In the middle is the tray and under it, the front panel display. The display is visible even in strong light and shows all the pertinent information depending on the inserted media.


Information display when playing back a DVD VIDEO / DVD-RW

When playing back a VIDEO CD with Playback Control (PBC)

When playing back a Super Audio CD, CD, DATA DVD (DivX video), DATA CD (MP3 audio / DivX video), or VIDEO CD. Notice that when we play back the HD layer of a Super Audio CD, the disk type is not displayed and also, while playing DivX video files, the current track is not displayed.


On the right hand side of the device are located the necessary control buttons such as play, pause, stop and previous / next, as well as the progressive button indicator which lights up when the player outputs progressive video signals.

The remote is elegant and very easy to use and with a few adjustments, we can control a variety of other devices such as TV’s and AV amplifiers. It supports most of the brands we could find on the market today.
