Whether you're shopping for your first DVD player, or a second one for the bedroom or den, Pioneer's ultra-slim DV-275-S offers outstanding performance and value. It plays DVDs and CDs flawlessly, as well as recordable CDs and DVDs. Unlike some other budget models, the DV-275-S lets you play MP3 and WMA audio CDs without wrestling with a clumsy interface — an on-screen menu enables easy navigation and song selection from the player's remote control or front panel.

The DV-275-S is a smart alternative to those mystery-brand players that are disposable by design. Pioneer has been a leader in DVD technology from the beginning — you can count on years of glitch-free movie and music enjoyment. For maximum hookup compatibility, choose from three types of video jacks: composite (good), S-video (better), and component video (best).

Product Research


Graphical On-screen Displays: For ease of use, this player makes extensive use of graphical on-screen displays, including the Disc Navigator.

PureCinema Progressive Scan: Progressive-scan video has less flicker and fewer motion artifacts than the traditional interlaced-scanning method, resulting in a superior picture. To take advantage of this feature, you must have a television with component video inputs that supports the progressive scanning mode. The component outputs on this unit can be set to pass either progressive or interlaced video.

Video D/A Converter: This player uses a 54MHz/10-bit video digital-to-analog converter. This high-bit, high sampling D/A converter helps to reduce digital artifacts to give you a better picture.

Audio D/A Converter: This unit features a 192kHz/24-bit audio digital-to-analog converter.

Note: If a DVD recorded with a 96kHz sampling frequency is copyright-protected, no digital signal is output unless converted to 48kHz/16-bit. If a DVD recorded with a 96kHz sampling frequency is not copyright-protected, a 96kHz/24-bit digital signal is output.

MP3/WMA Playback: This unit will play MP3/WMA files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level 1/level2, Romeo, or Joliet formats. This player is not compatible with WMA loss-less-encoding, variable bit-rate MP3/WMA files, or multi-session recordings. Each disc can have a maximum of 299 files, and up to 648 files and folders combined.

JPEG Disc Playback: This unit will play back JPEG files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level 1/level2, Romeo, or Joliet formats. Baseline JPEG and EXIF 2.2 still image files up to 3072 x 2048 are supported. During playback, you can use the JPEG Disc Navigator to find a particular folder or picture by filename. You can also locate a picture within a folder by thumbnail image. Other available functions during JPEG disc playback include: zoom (2x, 4x), slide show playback, and angle adjustment, which allows you to rotate the current image 90-degrees clockwise.

Virtual Surround: When playing a Dolby Digital disc, this feature allows you to obtain a surround sound effect from only two speakers.

Dialogue Enhancer: The Dialogue Enhancer increases the center channel volume (relative to other channels), making movie dialogue easier to hear and understand.

Equalizer: The following EQ presets are stored into memory, allowing you to recall the best setting for different types of music: Rock, Pop, Live, Dance, Techno, Classic, Soft, or Off.

Zoom: The zoom feature can be used to enlarge any part of the picture by 2x or 4x.

Resume Play and Last Memory: When you stop playback of a disc, "Resume" is shown in the display indicating that you can resume playback from that point. For DVDs and Video CDs, if you take the disc out of the player, the position is stored in memory (Last Memory). The resume point is cleared when the disc is removed from the player. For DVDs and Video CDs, the resume/last memory point is cleared when the Stop button is pressed more than once.

Video Adjust Memory Presets: You can adjust the following picture quality settings: sharpness, brightness, contrast, gamma, hue, and chroma level.
