Pioneer DV-600AV was interesting for me because it has possibility to play DVD-Audio and SACD and it has got integrated
decoder with analog output for 5.1. Extra interesting is the quality of sound which some DVD players are having bad quality.
Quality of sound was pretty good with nice serve of acustic which i wasnt able to heat on my older players.
Back side includes HDMI, component Video, S-video, audio 5.1, scart, optic and koaxial output.On the front panel is
placed conector USB 1.1 for USB devices. There should be more conectors, but on the other hand we shall be glad that none of the
important connectors is missing. Extern USB devices are not supported as manufacturer has written. In the real it is working with no
problems:) I tried from flash disk Kingston Data traveller II. It is possible to play mp3 with variate compression eventhough it is
written in manual that it is impossible. Actually it shows actual values of the data stream on the screen:D
display is blue backlighted and well readable. Shows basic statuses of the player and informations about playing music. On the connected
screen is possible to see all aditional informations.
It is possible to eject with remote controller what is comfortable. Drive is fast and fastly responds orders. It is silent and you can
hear it only when loading or when quickly switching the songs, but anyway it is not loud in that cases.
Remote controller does not need exact aim on the device and fits well to your hand. It has strong construction so you can drop it on the floor without being
afraid. The only think i dislike about controller are the buttons menu, top menu, home menu - these are labeled not well and it is a bit confusing for the user.
Devide is able to play almost all common formats including SCAD Multi and DVD-Audio what is not common for the price category of this device. The only one format
which i wasnt able to play was Mini DV. The device recognizes it but it will not play. The supported are:DVD/CD/SVCD/VCD/CD-R/CD-RW/DVD-R/DVD-RW/ DVD+R/DVD+RW/ DivX 5/ DivX 4/ DivX 3/ DivX VOD/DivX ULTRA, MP3 / WMA, MPEG4-AAC.
Supported is 4:3 and 16:9. Video is very high quality when playing DVD - it is sharp and live. There are many possibilities to set corrections for the video.
You can set sharpness, Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, Hue, Chroma level, BNR.
Finally thing I apreciate is that it consumes a low ammount of energy - playing 12W, stand-by only 0.8w
