High Definition (1080i/720p) Up-Conversion with HDMIUpgrade Your DVDs
When connected to an HDMI-compatible TV via an HDMI cable, this DVD recorder can up-convert the DVD content that you?re watching to 720p or 1080i resolution (depending on your TV?s display capability) so you can enjoy beautiful, high-quality imagery in high definition.
Powerful and Accurate Surround Sound
The amplifier built into this home theater system pumps out high power levels for driving our speakers at satisfying volumes with low distortion. You'll feel like you're in the front row at your local multiplex as the sounds from Dolby Digital® and DTS® soundtracks travel all around you.
Film-Like Image Quality
The goal of any playback device should be accurate reproduction of the original content. In the case of DVDs, most of that content is film-based. Utilizing advanced progressive scan1 playback techniques and very accurate MPEG video decoders, this home theater system provides an image that faithfully represents the image you see at your favorite movie theater.
Flexible Speaker Placement
The speakers included with our home theater packages come in all shapes and sizes, from slim tall-boy tower speakers to unobtrusive bookshelf satellites, so they'll fit into your room no matter what your space restrictions may be. Feel free to put the center channel speaker on top of your TV and the left/right speakers close by. It won't cause any problems because our speakers feature magnetic shielding that prevents the magnets inside your speakers from affecting your TV's image.
Digital Recordings Sound Like the Original Performance
When compressed digital audio such as MP3s and movie soundtracks is created, higher frequencies are lost due to limited frequency response. Most of these frequencies can't be heard by human ears, but their presence conveys subtle nuances. When they're missing in a digital recording, it doesn't quite sound the same as the live performance. Our multi re-master feature examines the audio signal and helps compensate for these lost frequencies, providing sound quality closer to the original performance.
