AJ Electronics are delighted to stock the famous Sony DVP-NC555ES ES 5-Disc DVD/SA-CD Player.
With so many on offer these days, it is great to have a name you can trust. The Sony DVP-NC555ES ES 5-Disc DVD/SA-CD Player is certainly that and will be a great acquisition.
For this price, the Sony DVP-NC555ES ES 5-Disc DVD/SA-CD Player comes highly respected and is always a popular choice for many people. Sony have added some great touches and this equals great value.
Like other DVD players in Sony's ES series lineup, the DVP-NC555ES is designed to take advantage of a broad range of disc formats that includes not only DVD-Video, but also DVD-R and DVD-RW discs recorded in the DVD-Video and VR formats; DVD+R and DVD+RW; CD, CD-R, CD-RW, CD MP3, and Video CD; as well as Super Audio CD stereo and multichannel media.
The Sony DVP-NC555ES take full advantage of the latest generation of multichannel Super Audio CD music. Multichannel SACD gives producers the ability to capture the precise ambience and reverberation that give any concert hall, jazz club, or recording studio its characteristic "sound."
The SACD's 1-bit signal is processed and decoded by Sony's CXD2753 DSD decoder LSI. This integrated circuit makes intelligent decisions regarding the incoming data to form the 1-bit audio signal. The LSI uses internal memory to take data that's output intermittently from the disc, rearrange it, and order it into continuous 1-bit audio streams.
Sony's Video Equalizer enables you to fine-tune the picture quality of each disc you watch. You can adjust picture, brightness, color, hue, and chroma delay in addition to graphical gamma adjustment. And once you've optimized the picture for a particular disc, the DVP-NS555ES can commit your settings to memory (for up to 30 discs).
In DVD-Video playback, the ultimate in picture detail comes into direct conflict with the ultimate in picture clarity. Sony ES Series players, like the DVP-NC555ES, achieve superb fine picture detail and excellent clarity thanks to 108 MHz and 216 MHz oversampling in the D/A converter. This corresponds to 8x oversampling for progressive scan, 16x for interlaced playback.
Sony's pixel-by-pixel active I/P conversion feature includes built-in motion detection, enabling the DVP-NC555ES to generate the ideal progressive scanning output for each type of DVD source:
SACD: Super Audio CD (SACD) is a new high-quality audio disc standard where music is recorded in the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) format (conventional CDs are recorded in the PCM format). The DSD format, using a sampling frequency 64 times higher than that of a conventional CD and with 1-bit quantization, achieves both a wide frequency range and a wide dynamic range across the audible frequency range, providing music reproduction extremely faithful to the original sound. The SACD has two types: a two-channel stereo disc and a multichannel disc that holds up to six independent channels. The multichannel characteristic of the SACD features a speaker allocation system basically similar to the 5.1 channel output of current AV systems.
