This ultra slim, universal DVD player plays almost every format of DVD and CD - including DVD Audio and SACD.
The DV-696AV-S also plays multiple file formats. If you download films and music from the web MPEG, MP3, WMA or JPEG files for example simply burn them on a disc and press play. This player is DivX Ultra certified.
The 600AV has an HDMI output with 1080p upscaling, ensuring that what you see is of the highest possible quality, regardless of the source.
In addition, the 600AV has Virtual Surround Sound, which enables radio or TV programmes that are broadcast in mono or stereo to be played back in full 5.1-channel surround.

The link shows £126.57 inc vat...you sure you got the right price?

To get free postage you need to sign up via AVForums; see other posts for details.
There are two versions of this in different colours both available from the Today Only page. The price in the main link shows the full price, when you add it to the basket it shows the discounted price.

It’s fairly expensive for a 1080P upscaling DVD Player but for those that require support for SACD & DVD-A (all two of you :)) it seems a good deal; the best price on Google Products is £120.
Further details at Pioneer.

You were too quick for me. As I said above, just add to the basket and the discounted price is shown.

If you connect an upscaling DVD player such as this to the DVI input of a PC Monitor will it output all the supported formats as 1080P? I’m wondering if it’s just the DVD playback that is upscaled.
The monitor that I have in mind is a 24” 1920x1200 and supports 1:1 pixel mapping so that it can display 1080P in the correct resolution (1920x1080) without scaling.

I was looking at the DV-400AV but it seems as if that model doesn’t support playing back MPEG2 files from recordable media which seems a strange omission. Do you know if this model does support playback of MPG files? I have Freeview recordings which I’d like to be able to play from DVD-R or an external powered HDD.
#11
Cracking deal, only 1 thing though - be careful as this is NOT multi regional and from what i've been reading they're not the easiest model to crack either.

If you're just looking for a region 2 player then it's spot on.
#12
They should be fine to make multi-region..... read the info on the AVForums

should playback most formats too, again check forum postings for exact details.

there is very little difference between the 400 + 600 versions, and many people will be happy with the 400, and that is on the today only page at scan for £52, whixh is a steal too

also, this player can playback DivX files from pen drive via the USB connection, and will accept some hard drives too, there are also modified firmwares available for the 400 model to make the file indexing table better.

i just ordered one of these 600 versions today, after seeing only the 400 on the today only page last week i emailed them requesting the 600 model on today only as well, i guess i was not the only one to do so :P
#13
Is this better than the Pioneer DV-696 ? the spec looks better but the 696 is priced higher

Does this offer end midnight if it is a today only offer ?

thanks

I think the DV-696 is an older model and lacks a USB input so I’d give it a miss.
See Home Cinema Choice for reviews; they gave the DV-600 96%.

The offers run from roughly midday to the next midday except for the weekend deals which are longer. If you put the item in the basket now it will stay at the reduced price for quite a few days. I’ve had something in my basket for about 3 days and I just rebooted the computer and it’s still at the offer price.

They have the 600 on offer quite frequently but usually at over a £100.

sorry couple more queries,

do you know how to get the free postage, if i add to basket it displays a postage cost but title suggests can be purchased free p&p, how do you use AVForums to achieve ?

i want a good upscaler, will be connecting via HDMi on a Panny Plasma (1080i) and i want to play DivX and Xvid if poss. Is it worth paying the extra for the DV600 or as im not bothered much about the audio, just go for the DV400 at £52.

Thanks again.

There is a link on the first page to AVForums that should explain how to activate the free postage. When you add it to the basket it shows postage, you have to sign-in to your account for it to remove it.

The differences between the two are probably negligible for many people. If you don’t need the extra features you might as well save your money. The following data is taken from AVforums.

The benefits of the DV600 are: (vs DV400)
- Plays SACD and DVD-Audio
- DivX Ultra profile Certified vs DivX Certified
- 192 kHz/24-bit D/A Converter vs DV400:96 kHz/24-bit D/A Converter
- Built-in Dolby Digital Decoder (5.1 channel)
- Built-in DTS Decoder (5.1 channel)
- Bass Management and Delay Adjustment
- Total Harmonic Distortion 0,0023 % vs DV400: 0,0065%
- Dynamic Range 100 dB vs DV400: 88 dB
- 5.1 Analogue outputs
- S-video out
- Optical Audio out

The 600 also outputs more audio formats over HDMI than the 400. If you download the user manual and read the thread above you’ll probably know which one is for you but miss the deal. :)

Thanks Agharta, heat and rep added.

Is the player decent? would like this to match my pio plasma?! ;)
banned#20
seeing as this has a usb port, can you connect an external hard drive to it and play media files?

or what about a usb memory card reader, and use for example a sd card?

anyone had experience with this sort of connectivity?
#21
Not every format.

Does not play HDCD as do the Oppo 970,980 and 981 which are true universal players.

You can play content from your USB memory stick or audio player (the player has a front-in USB), or enjoy other compressed movies and music formats that you have downloaded from the web and then burnt onto CD-R/RW (MPEG, MP3, WMA or JPEG files for example).

still havent given me an answer?!

in stead of plugging in my usb flash drive can i plug in my external hdd, or an external memory card reader to play back media from my sd card?

and is this also a recorder? on scan it seems to indicate it has recording formats..........:thinking:

the Pioneer DV-400 is showing as 83.99?? how u get it for 52??

whats the difference between the dv-600 and the Pioneer DV-696AV they have on scan aswell?
#27
Probably a really daft question but what would this DVD player give me over something like the Samsung DVD-HD870 that i am thinking of getting for about £30 less. http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/displayreview.php?reviewid=7307

I have a Samsung LE37R87BDX Telly http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/displayreview.php?reviewid=7289

It does support an external HDD but has issues with certain 2.5” drives that need power over USB; not that it’s alone in this area. I don’t know whether card readers typically work with these sorts of devices.
There’s a long thread at AVForums which may address your questions if you have the time and patience; 370 posts.

The answer is NO so I have given you an answer . If it was capable of being done as you want Pioneer would have stated it .

If you read the previous posts it answers both questions. :thumbsup:
1. Put it in the basket and it shows the discounted price.
2. It’s an older model which lacks USB input.

The Samsung is usually nearer £55 so for £30 you’re getting a bargain.
The Pioneer has many more features than the Samsung but whether it’s worth the extra depends on your requirements: 1080P, USB, WMV, SACD, DVD-A, DTS & DD decoders, flexible audio over HDMI, 5.1 analogue audio output etc
#32
Cheers for that.

I meant that I was looking for it at £30 less than the Pioneer. (If only I could find it for £30).

Sorry to be a biff but would I get a better quality picture from the Pioneer than from the Samsung bearing in mind I think my Samsung LE37R87BDX is 1080i?

p.s. just noticed the Samsung DVD-HD870 is £46.94 on Scans "Today Only" page.... not bad!

today only prices, i am guessing add it to the basket and enjoy the today only price.

looking at the technical spec, the dv696 offers spdif out optical/coaxial, 5.1 audio i/o, but no usb connection

I misread the £30 thing; I need to go to bed, must put down the mouse before the RSPCA come a calling. :w00t:
If you want to get a range of views I’d suggest reading the thread on AVForums that I linked earlier. There’s rarely a simple answer in AV land.

Fair point.... told you I was a biff when it comes to AV. :w00t:

Question still stands though would the image from the Pioneer be better than the Samsung on my Telly? :?

**edit** sorry - question answered while I was clacking away!!
#38
to be honest im not a pro at all, im intrested in this as i have a pioneer plasma so would like a matching dvd player with usb divx suport. end of the day it will do the same job as the samsung. (another reason is that the tv remote will control the dvd player! so less remotes everywhere!)

if i had samsung i would look for a samsung set (saying that i got a yamaha amp! lol :oops:)

will think tonight and buy one tomorrow morning! still deciding whether to get the 400 or 600!?! :thinking:

heat rep added!

I’ve owned two Pioneer DVDs including my current one and found it to be really solid and the Remote is very well laid out. My parent’s Sony had the most ridiculously over populated remote. Sometimes it’s the small things that add up to make you want to stick with a particular manufacturer.

What stopping me from buying one is that it doesn’t seem to playback MPEG2 files from DVD-R or USB which is a strange omission! It’s not easy to make region free either.
#40
I have the Samsung DVD-HD870 and it is very good. It will give just as good a picture as the Pioneer but the Pioneer has better audio features.

A tv of 1366 x 768 will display 720p and 1080i.
