When small is beautiful

The Cambridge Audio Sonata DV30 may be compact in size but its performance makes a big impression. In addition to upscaling your DVDs to near-HD quality, the DV30 has 2.1-channel analog output and built-in mix-down decoding, so you can use your external amplifier, stereo speakers and a powered sub to enjoy clean, full-range sound from your favorite films and CDs. Connect directly with an HDMI cable to your television or, if you prefer, to your home theater receiver if you're set up for surround sound.

Excellent by itself or as part of this elegant British system

Cambridge Audio designed the Sonata DV30 provide outstanding DVD and CD playback with any gear you may have. Though they would suggest it makes a perfect companion to the Cambridge Audio Sonata AR30 receiver.
