[COLOR=black][COLOR=dimgray]This is a Dolby 2.1 system with slim stereo speakers backed up by a subwoofer. The main unit is remarkably small and uses a top-loading disc mechanism with a translucent motorised cover (which needs 125mm of clearance space above it).[/COLOR]
[COLOR=dimgray]The top has an ambient lighting effect from two blue LEDs, matching both the backlit LCD display and the subwoofer. If it’s too distracting you can turn it off in the menu. [/COLOR]
[COLOR=dimgray]There’s no Scart, leaving you with a choice of S-video, composite or component. With the latter you can also access NTSC or PAL progressive scan. The player is not multiregional by default but given its Chinese heritage, keep an eye on the internet for a hack. It does support MPEG4 formats, including DivX/AVI files used commonly for video downloads – which it handles very successfully – so this is good for broadband users.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=dimgray]It also plays CD-R/RW, MP3, Video CD, SVCD and, unusually, DVD-Audio.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=dimgray]Despite its size, the Lafayette’s picture performance is strong, with decent levels of detail and attractive colour reproduction.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=dimgray]Only a few will be able to use the component connection, leaving S-video for the rest of you, so the experience is less crisp than RGB. You’ll need a dedicated S-video cable or S-video-to-Scart adaptor. Don’t use the supplied Scart adaptor as this delivers only basic composite.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=dimgray]The component output enables you to switch between interlaced or progressive for clearer, smooth running pictures, so this is the preferred route if you can use it.[/COLOR]


That looks cheap and tacky to me.
Very poor speakers, doesnt have scart (may not suit some).

You could pick up an equivalent DVD player for £20, so its £45 for a couple of 10W speakers.

Edit... by cheap and tacky I mean the spec... the 2nd set of pics make the product look good visually
i have one of thier dvd players and while its a cheap but nice looking machine the dvd drive is quite noisy
Thanks for the feedback smashed and dogsballs
