The DVF-3080-S is a contender for the title of "slimmest DVD player you can buy." That, plus its uncluttered Euro-styling helps it fit beautifully into nearly any setting — living room, bedroom, den, or dorm. It plays DVDs and CDs, recordable CDs, and most types of recordable DVD (everything but DVD-RAM). If you've caught the music file craze, this player provides hassle-free playback of MP3 and WMA (Windows Media Audio) audio CDs.

The DVF-3080-S is a smart choice if you're looking for a budget player you can count on for flawless operation long after the warranty period runs out. For maximum hookup compatibility, choose from three types of video jacks: composite (good), S-video (better), and component video (best).

Product Research


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-to-analog converter.

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 48kHz.

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 mode.

Note: To take advantage of this feature, you must have a television with component video inputs that supports the progressive scanning mode.

MP3 Playback: 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: 3D Surround simulates multi channel audio using only two stereo speakers, with a stereo receiver or directly from the television speakers.

Last 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.

Parental 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.
