The DVD-V2000's component-video output is ideal for use with the latest high-resolution televisions (and a standard composite-video output works with most older TVs). Chapter Digest simplifies access to DVD scenes by generating representative thumbnail images for each of a disc's chapters, and motion zoom enlarges the picture without distortion. The VCR plays back S-VHS tapes at full VHS quality, and provides commercial skip, dual-azimuth four-head recording and playback, HQ and luminance video noise reduction, quick start, end search, one-touch recording, and an auto-fit recording system.
The DVD-V2000 is compatible with standard CDs, audio CD-Rs and CD-RWs, and discs encoded with MP3 audio files. A 96 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter ensures optimal decoding of all disc formats, while 2x audio playback lets you hear the movie or music while you search, where most other DVD players are mute. The player's Phantom Surround processor simulates surround-sound effects using only two speakers.
In the video realm, you get the works: standard composite-video, S-video, and premium component-video outputs for the DVD player (one set each), as well as two sets of composite-video inputs and one RF (cable-type) input and output for the VCR. You have the choice of optical or coaxial digital-audio outputs to feed a surround-sound signal to a Dolby Digital-decoding or DTS-decoding AV receiver.
