Sony DVP-NS330 DVD Player - page 1
The increased production of consumer players nowadays coupled with cheaper, more reliable optical parts has had a significant effect on retail prices. In addition, consumer players are no longer the arcane devices they once were, incorporating simple controls making it easy even for ordinary users to operate them, even if they are not computer literate. Today, everyone has the opportunity to own a DVD player or recorder, place it his living-room and enjoy the latest movie.
We have selected an ordinary DVD player, available from Sony at an affordable price. The model is the DVP NS-330.
Sony's DVP-NS330 features built-in MP3 decoding, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW (video mode) playback, and Precision Drive 2 with Dynamic Tilt Compensation for error-free disc reading. SCART and composite video outputs provide connection with nearly any television set.
MP3 Playback: Playing MP3 Music on this Sony DVD player is easy. Just insert an MP3 disc and press MENU. A blue screen pops up to Display your folders. Scroll down the list using the remote control or front panel cursor controls to select the folder you want. The green, files screen pops up to show the files for the selected folder. Select the file you want to hear and you're done. Finding music couldn't be easier.
A 192 kHz 24-bit digital-to-analogue converter ensures optimum decoding of all disc formats. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's coaxial digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: Sony's TV Virtual Surround (with four surround modes) simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).
Playback options include quick set-up, DVD/CD Text, block noise reduction, a digital video enhancer, custom parental control memory for 40 discs, Advanced Smooth Scan and Smooth Slow Modes, instant replay and instant search. Supplied accessories include a remote control that operates the DVD player and many brands of television.
Precision Drive™ 2 with Dynamic Tilt Compensation - Past generations of Precision Drive technology were only able to compensate for warped discs by moving the entire optical block, which took more time and limited the amount of correction possible.
