Disc Compatibility

Disc Playback: The Sony DVP-SR510H can play back the following discs.

  • DVD Discs: DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW/R DL
  • CD Discs: Music CD, Video CD, CD-R/RW

MP3/WMA/AAC Playback: This unit will play MP3 files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level 1/level 2, or Joliet formats, and DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL and DVD+RW discs using the Universal Disk Format (UDF). Each disc can have a maximum of 200 albums of 600 files.

JPEG Disc Playback: The unit supports standard definition and high resolution (up to 1080p) playback of JPEG images. This unit will play JPEG files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level 1/level 2, or Joliet formats and DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL and DVD+RW discs using the Universal Disk Format (UDF).

Program Play: You can play the contents of a disc (DVD-video, VCD, CD) in the order you want by arranging the order of the titles, chapters, or tracks on the disc to create your own program. You can program up to 99 titles, chapters and tracks.

Parental Control: Parental Control allows you to restrict playback according to a predetermined level. You can select a parental control rating from 0-8, which is protected by a 4-digit password.

Child Lock (Tray Lock): You can lock the disc tray to prevent a child from opening it.

Video Features

Precision Drive 3 System: Precision Drive 3 reduces errors in playback due to imperfect, scratched or warped DVD discs.

Video D/A Converter: This player uses a 108MHz/12-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.

Precision Cinema Progressive Technology: Sony's Precision Cinema Progressive (PCP) system detects image changes at the Pixel level. As a result, the picture is more faithful to the source; whether film or video-because separate, optimized algorithms are used to handle the differing Pixel behavior. Separate algorithms are also used to process the moving and still parts of an image, resulting in sharp backgrounds with moving objects that are virtually free from motion artifacts.

HDMI Output With Video Upscaling: The DVP-SR510H reads the data on a standard DVD disc at 480P and maximizes the video resolution to best fit your HDMI compatible TV. This unit can upscale a standard DVD 480p video signal to 720p, 1080i or 1080p through its HDMI output. This allows for you to enjoy the best in video performance while delivering digital video and audio over one simple cable.

Slideshow Playback With Sound: The DVP-SR510H lets you display images as 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 in the same folder or you can use one of the player's pre-recorded background sounds. During a slideshow you can select one of the following transition effects:

  • Mode 1: images randomly cycle through the effects
  • Mode 2: next image slides over the previous image
  • Mode 3: image sweeps in from top to bottom
  • Mode 4: image sweeps in from left to right
  • Mode 5: images stretches out from the center of the screen
  • Off: turns off this feature

Custom Picture Mode: You can choose from the following Custom Picture Mode settings:

  • Standard: Displays a standard picture.
  • Dynamic: Produces a bold dynamic picture by increasing the picture contrast and the color intensity.
  • Cinema: Enhances details in dark areas by increasing the black level.
  • Memory: Allows you to adjust the contrast, brightness, color, and hue individually.

Sharpness: This function sharpens the outlines of images on the TV screen.

Screen Setup:

  • TV Type: Selects the aspect ratio of the player's video output to match your connected TV; you can choose from 16:9 Wide Screen, 4:3 Letter Box, or 4:3 Pan Scan.
  • Screen Saver: On or Off; the screen saver image appears when you leave the player in pause or stop mode for 15 minutes or when you play back a disc without video for more than 15 minutes.
  • Background: Select the background in stop mode or while playing a CD or an MP3 disc; choose Jacket Picture (shows the jacket picture if supported by the disc), Graphics (shows a preset graphic), Blue (background color is blue), or Black (background color is black)
  • Black Level: Set the black level for the video signals output from the composite Video jack.
  • 4:3 Output: Adjust this setting to watch a 4:3 aspect ratio movie when you have selected 16:9 as the video output TV Type for this player; you can choose from Full (stretches 4:3 image to fill screen) or Normal (black bands on left and right side screen).

Custom Setup:

  • Auto Power Off: On or Off; the player enters standby mode after being left in stop mode for more than 30 minutes
  • Auto Play: useful when the player is connected to a timer (not included); when Auto Play is turned on, playback automatically starts when the unit is turned on.
  • Pause Mode: You can select from Auto (no jitter) or Frame (high resolution) for the type of picture output in pause mode.
  • Track Selection (DVD only): Select Auto or Off; when Auto is selected, priority is given to the digital audio track with the most channels.
  • Multi-disc Resume (DVD/VCD only): The player stores the point where you stopped the disc for up to 6 discs and resumes playback from the stored location the next time you insert the same disc.

Audio Features

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

Digital Audio Output Capabilities: You can select the sampling frequency and word length of the audio signal to be output via the digital coaxial output. You can select 48kHz/16-bit or 96kHz/24-bit. When set to 48kHz/16-bit, the audio signals are always converted to 48kHz/16-bit. When set to 96kHz/24-bit, 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 output as 48kHz/16-bit.

TV Virtual Surround (TVS): TV Virtual Surround generates a convincing surround sound effect using only two stereo speakers; either with a stereo receiver or directly from the television speakers. You can turn this feature Off or select one of the following settings:

  • TVS Dynamic Theater: Uses sound imaging to create a large set of virtual rear speakers and a virtual subwoofer; effective when the front speakers are close together, like the TV's speakers.
  • TVS Dynamic: Uses sound imaging to create a single set of virtual rear speakers; also effective when the front speakers are close together.
  • TVS Wide: Uses sound imaging to create five pair of virtual rear speakers; effective when the front speakers are close together.
  • TVS Night: Large sounds, such as explosions, are suppressed, but the quieter sounds are unaffected.
  • TVS Standard: Uses sound imaging to create three pair of virtual rear speakers; effective when using separate front speakers that are farther apart.

Audio DRC (Dynamic Range Control): The dynamic range is lowered so the dialogue stays clear without dynamic bursts of special effects; choose Standard (DRC off), TV Mode, or Wide Range. Audio DRC can be used with any DVD.

A/V Sync: This feature allows for the alignment of the audio track to match the video which is necessary for some new televisions that buffer or delay video.

Remote Control

Multibrand TV Remote: The supplied remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit and a number of functions on certain brands of televisions.

Sony® DVD players sold in the U.S. are coded to play Region 1 DVDs. They also will play discs labelled Region 0 or All. There is no way to override the region code. NOTE: Region codes do not apply to recordable DVDs. THE BELOW INFORMATION IS A COPY/PASTE FROM AN ONLINE MANUAL. PARENTAL CONTROL Playback of some DVD VIDEOs can be limited according to a predetermined level such as the age of the users. Scenes may be blocked or replaced with different scenes. PLAYER ?: Enter your 4-digit password, then press ENTER. Select the level in "LEVEL." The lower the value, the stricter the limitation. Select an area in "STANDARD." When you select "OTHERS?," select and enter a standard code. ? "PARENTAL CONTROL AREA CODE LIST" PASSWORD ?: Enter a 4-digit password. If you forget your password, enter "199703" in the password box, press ENTER, and then enter a new 4-digit password.

password 199703 per instructions sheet. Don't use this function myself, so I have never tried this.

Can I connect this to a desk top pc?
[ Dr. A  Apr 16, 2021 ]

My first reaction is NO, since I connect it to my TV using an HDMI cable, which my laptop won't accept. My second reaction is maybe, if you have the right hardware or you are willing to try something improvisational, which is probably not worth the trouble.
[ Raymond  Apr 17, 2021 ]
I have mine hooked up to my TV but I don't see why you couldn't connect your's to a PC.

Can I just connect this to speakers and how?
[ Jim  Dec 14, 2020 ]
5 answers
No, you need to connect the output to something that will drive the speakers. I use an old KLH radio that takes auxillary input.
[ Raymond  Dec 16, 2020 ]
you would need an amplifier or receiver to power the CD player unless you use speakers with a built in amp.
[ Kevin  Dec 15, 2020 ]
No, this is a player. You will need an amplifier/receiver.
[ SCOTT  Dec 15, 2020 ]
I don't believe so: basic machine with a/V out via RCA jacks only. Would need to go to pre-amp or receiver first.

Do this unit have a RCA output?
[ Curtis  Feb 12, 2020 ]
3 answers
I think that's wrong, let alone "best answer".. Either wrong or Sony is lying. The rear photo clearly shows RCA A/V outputs (analog left & right audio, single-cable (yellow conn. video). I would not use the yellow; everyone now has HDMI. But the L/R RCA analog audio outputs are most important if you,as do I, have an analog stereo preamp-amp. I wouldn't give up my beautiful NAD C320-BEE for nuthin'! Further, I question Crutchfield advisor Paul's statement that the quality of the audio output isn't better than a typical TV output. A 96KHz, 24-bit D-A is very good, as good as your CD's. I intend to contact Paul to verify my suspicion. Stay tuned ...
[ RUDOLF  May 30, 2020 ]
No, sorry, this unit has neither analog video or analog audio outputs. What it has are a coaxial audio outlet and an HDMI video out. This is a simple but very nice performing unit, and I have yet to be dissatisfied with either its video or audio performance.
[ REGINALD R  Feb 13, 2020 ]
This unit has a digital output and a HDMI output. I believe it can be connected to any TV that has an digital input or HDMI input.

[ ed_bob  May 16, 2018 ]

I don't expect much, if any, difference in the sound of these analog audio outputs when compared to a TV's analog audio outputs. I'm sure we can help you improve the sound and recommend that you call an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 for a personal recommendation My Bio:

Not directly, as there is no mini-jack on the player. You would have to get a headphone amplifier with a built-in digital to analog converter (DAC).

Would this CD player (DVP SR510H) produce sound by connecting via a cable to a 3.5 mm audio input? It's for a sauna with built-in radio, speakers etc., but I only need sound for music CD's. No need for DVD. Just the cable and 3.5mm pin from the CD player into the sauna. Dominick Grundy
[ Dominick  May 27, 2015 ]
2 answers
Dominick, I bought a few of these and use one in exactly that way, as an audio CD player for a Bose kitchen radio, plugged into the AUX jack. It works fine, although is a bit slow to start playing, (seem to have to hit PLAY twice) but once it starts it works fine. It was the only CD/DVD player I could find that had an analog output for my older TVs.

From my inspection of the included remote, I believe it goes in both directions (advance and replay). Your owners' manual should have the answer in more detail. If you have misplaced the manual (as I appear to have done), you can download the manual from the Sony website.

A-B usually refers to a speaker pair selection function. Integrated amplifiers and receivers normally have this function, but CD/DVD players do not.
