DVD was invented in 1995 & it's taken more than 10yrs to perfect the DVD player. The early DVD players all suffered from the same problems that plague Bluray players of today. They were plagued with slow loading times & they came locked - region coded. Even today, there are a lot of DVD players out there that are region coded & they need to be hacked, if U intend to play international DVDs.

The Pioneer DV-610AV is a true universal DVD player because of the following reasons:

1) Out of the box, this player comes unlocked. It plays DVDs from all 6 DVD regions.
2) Universal power supply, it works on both 110V - 220V. It comes with two power chords, one with the N. American flat pin & the other one has the Asian (Chinese) round pin. It can be plugged anywhere in the world with the help of the right pin / plug adaptor.
3) It plays almost all formats other than High Definition formats such as Bluray. It even plays DVDA & SACD.
4) Available in both black & silver. This sure adds up to the universal appeal that many other DVD players lack.
5) All the video / audio connections U'd ever want - HDMI, Component video, Composite video, S-Video, Coaxial audio, Optical audio & 5.1 channel analogue outs.

Design, features & performance:

I bought a Pioneer DV-610AV('S' - Silver) from B&H, NYC in Jan 2009 for USD120. After using it for over an year, I'm truly impressed with its capabilities. I have the Pioneer DV-610AV connected to an Onkyo TX-SR604 AVR Onkyo TX-SR604 7.1 Channel A/V Receiver (Black) with Mediabridge HDMI

This player is quite amazing. I use HDMI output for video, and 2-channel analog output for audio (with digital audio turned off). The audio is connected to a tube pre-amp and MOSFET amp. SACDs (stereo layer) sound sublime on this player, and CDs are very crisp. Note that it down-samples 5.1 digital audio to stereo. One great feature is that it remembers where you stopped the DVD after turning it off. The picture quality up-sampled to 1080p is fantastic. The on-screen menus are well laid out. The player has buttons to do whatever you want without a remote. I was deciding between this and a blu-ray player, and decided on the 610 since most blu-ray players apparently do not up-sample DVDs very well. Unlike the 610, they also do not play SACDs or Audio-DVDs (unless you're willing to pay hundreds of dollars for one that does). Even if I end up buying a blu-ray player, this one won't be put away. This model is one of the latest Eurepean models (check on pioneer's .eu site).

Fantastic value for money, easily the best bargain i've bought in years. The audio quality via H.D.M.I is first class the video was very good but not top quality when upscaling from DVD. However as an all-rounder for SACD / CD / DVD Audio it is impossible to beat!

I have owned this product for a couple of weeks now and it has performed v. well. I have played region 1, region 2 and region 5 dvds in it. Some were music DVDs, while all the others were films. I have not yet tried the SACD or DivX capabilities of the player. I think this DVD player is excellent in both sound and picture quality. It is as sharp as my more expensive Sony DVD player and it has better sound. The LPCM option is the one I use most often when it is available and it really improves the sound of my music DVDs and some of my file DVDs as well.

The remote is fine and the build quality is also better than most of the recent DVD player models. I do accidentally press the DVD/USB switch and have to switch back to DVD mode, but that is no biggie. Unlike a lot of other recent players, there are plenty of buttons/controls on the front of the unit that allow you to control everything without the remote. Some 'old school' electronics junkies will appreciate this.

This player doesn't have internet connectivity and it doesn't play blue-rays, but it up-converts better any player I have owned (Oppo, Sony, and Samsung).

The code-free all region capability is what I wanted in addition to the HDMI connectivity/1080i capability and I am a very happy camper in these areas.
Pioneer quality at a v. reasonable price too.
Highly recommended.

My friend recently moved to the US from Germany and missed being able to play some of her favorite DVDs. I did a lot of research and eventually decided to order this region free DVD player. This player shows European discs and converts from PAL format to American TVs with no problem. It even up-converts to play DVDs on a HD tv without problems. The picture is on par with my previous up-converting DVD player.

A few things that I learned while researching region free DVD players:

1) all DVD players CAN play other regions if you can unlock them with a code. I decided against unlocking my old DVD player because it required both the original remote (long gone) and a pretty involved set of key presses / restarting the DVD player etc. Buying one already unlocked was easier.

2) all the region free DVD players on amazon are sold by third party merchants (even if they are fulfilled by amazon, they are not "new" from the factory players. It matters which seller you select. Some sellers include instructions on how to unlock the player, others unlock it for you. I bought mine from New Era Products (fulfilled by amazon). The player was already unlocked, all I had to do was plug it in a play movies.

3) unlocking DVD players is a software thing and does not involve altering the hardware; however, no manufacturers will help unlock their device nor will they offer support if something is not working. If you tell a manufacturer you have a region free player, you may have voided any factory warranty. So be sure to try out the player when you get it.

At the end of the day I am very happy with my region free player from New Era Products and fulfilled by amazon. We are happy to be able to order discs from Germany and watch them as well as our American DVDs. Do your homework before buying, but I can recommend this model from New Era without hesitation.
