Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Precision Digital Timing/DPAC:
DPAC is a precision master clock circuit that is isolated from signal processing
circuits to eliminate interference. This ensures that digital information is
processed at exactly the same rate as it was recorded, eliminating jitter.
Video D/A Converter:
This player uses a 54MHz/10-bit video digital-to-analog converter.
Audio D/A Converter:
This player features a 96kHz/24-bit audio
Digital Audio Output Capabilities:
You can select the sampling frequency of the audio signal to be
output via the digital outputs, 48kHz or 96kHz.
When set to 48kHz, the audio signals are always converted to
48kHz. When set to 96kHz, all types of signals, including
96kHz/24-bit, are output in their original format. However, if the signal is
encrypted for copyright protection purposes, the signal is only output as
Progressive Scan Output:
Progressive-scan video has less flicker and fewer motion artifacts than the
traditional interlaced-scanning method, resulting in a superior picture. This
unit allows you to choose Interlaced or Progressive
To take advantage of this feature, you must have a television with
component video inputs that supports the progressive scanning mode.
This unit will play MP3 files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using
the ISO 9660 level 1 format. Each disc can have a maximum of 999 files.
JPEG Disc Playback: This unit
will play JPEG files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO
9660 level 1 format. The
following functions are available during JPEG disc playback: slideshow (with or
without audio), zoom (4x, 16x), and image rotation, which allows you to rotate
the current image clockwise or counterclockwise.
Slideshow Playback: JPEG
picture files can be displayed in a slideshow with or without sound. If you
want to play a slideshow with sound, you'll need to place the JPEG files and MP3
files on the same disc. During a slideshow, you can adjust the amount of time
each image is displayed (Fast/Normal/Slow).
3D Surround simulates
multi channel audio using only two stereo speakers, with a stereo receiver or
directly from the television speakers.
Scene Memory: The player stores the point where you stopped the
last disc that was played and
resumes playback from the stored location.
The resume playback point is saved even if you remove the disc from the player
or turn the power off.
Control: This unit allows you to
set playback restrictions for DVDs using Parental Control. Playback of certain
scenes is restricted
according to a rating system encoded on many discs, some discs even have
alternate scenes. The control rating
is adjustable from 1-8, with 1 being the most restrictive and 8 the least.
Parental Control can be turned off and is protected by a 4-digit password.
