Watch movies on VHS tape or high-quality DVD, listen to audio CDs with crystal-clear sound, or play homemade MP3 CDs through your living-room speakers--all from one affordable, space-saving device. The Philips DVD740VR also lets you record off-air in hi-fi stereo sound and watch a camcorder or hook up a gaming console from convenient front-panel audio/video inputs. Top-of-the-line component-video DVD outputs help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while S-video and shared DVD/VCR composite-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's coaxial digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. A 96 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter ensures optimum stereo decoding of all disc formats. If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: 3D sound simulates surround sound through two speakers (even the stereo speakers on your TV).

The VCR's four-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, and with hi-fi sound the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. SQPB (quasi-S-VHS playback) lets you watch S-VHS tapes--which normally requires a special S-VHS VCR--at standard VHS resolution. Other features include timer recording, auto head cleaning, auto repeat playback (great for trade shows and presentations), and one-touch recording.
