The perfect theater for homes with standard or high-definition televisions, Magnavox's style-conscious MRD210 consists of a Dolby Digital/DTS-decoding surround-sound receiver with an integrated single-disc progressive-scan DVD/CD player, five satellite speakers, and a passive, ported subwoofer. The DVD drive reads NTSC and PAL DVDs as well as standard CD, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3 CD, and JPEG/Kodak Picture CD. Now you can enjoy your digital music and photos in the comfort of your living room.
If you're using (or plan to use) a high-definition or HD-ready TV, you'll appreciate the system's progressive scanning, which is referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image. This feature creates a picture with twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD image, giving you sharper, higher resolution images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.
The system's 50-watts-per-channel receiver delivers a total of 600 watts of home-theater power, and the five speakers are acoustically designed to match the receiver's tonal characteristics. The front left, right, and center speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent interference with your TV's image. The tuner offers 40 FM/AM presets.
Connections include two analog-audio inputs and one analog-audio output, along with two digital-audio inputs (one each coaxial and optical). Three video outputs--composite-, component-, and S-video--accommodate most TVs and monitors.
