Product Description

Product Description

More is better, right? The DVP-NC600 has more! It has more Disc capabilities, more convenience items, more of what you want out of a DVD/CD Changer! Five must be the magic number. Not only is this a five-disc unit, it also offers five playback capabilities: DVD, CD, CD-R, CD-RW and VCD! Plus, the Digital Image Enhancer guarantees a sharp picture! With quick setup controls on a simple to use graphic interface menu, you will be watching your favorite movie or listening to tunes in no time!

Make favorite movies and music come alive with Sony's five-disc DVP-NC600 DVD/CD changer. The player features high-resolution component-video outputs, compatibility with audio CD-R/CD-RW discs, play exchange (swap four discs while one plays), and block noise reduction (BNR), which minimizes choppy image distortion during scenes where the whole image is changing quickly. SmoothScan and SmoothSlow modes provide the cleanest playback of DVD in slow motion and scan speeds, and DVD/CD Text functionality displays title and artist information on encoded discs.

Top-of-the-line component-video outputs help minimize line scan and digital artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television. The back panel offers one output each for S-video, and component-video, and a pair of composite-video/stereo analog audio (left/right RCA) jacks in the event you wish to feed the same signal to two televisions. In any case, a 10-bit video DAC with 27 MHz processing ensures accurate video with smooth gradations of color and contrast.

Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each optical and coaxial) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. The player's 96 kHz, 24-bit linear PCM decoding extracts the full performance of all linear PCM audio in the CD and DVD-Video formats. You can also process two-channel sources for surround sound: Digital Cinema Sound DSP reproduces the precise acoustics of acclaimed Hollywood mastering stages, and the TV Virtual Surround System generates the effect of surround sound speakers, even when you're limited to a TV's stereo speakers.

Instant Replay jumps back 10 seconds and commences play. It's great for those times when you miss a line of movie dialogue or when you just have to see that dance move again. Custom parental control locks playback of up to 50 user-designated discs with a four digit code, even if the discs don't carry and MPAA rating.

Other features include random play, repeat play (including A-B repeat), program play (up to 99 tracks), resume play (picks up where you last stopped--even if power is turned off--up until you open the disc tray), slow motion, scan search, and a screen dimmer to give you that theater-like blackness during video presentations.

What's in the Box
DVD/CD player, a remote control (RMT-D130A), two AA batteries, a five-foot composite-video/stereo analog audio interconnect, a user's manual, Registration Card, and warranty information.

I'm enthusiastic enough about this product to give it five stars, but I haven't really explored all of it's functionality, so I held back. I have used the unit thoroughly for DVD and CD playback, and am completely satisfied, but I'm not enhanced sound enabled, so I can't really review the player as it relates to surround or Dolby use. It does sound great on my archaic two speaker/tuner system.
The unit was very easy to set up. Up and running in minutes, with a very intuitive interface. No real learning curve to overcome for basic playback use. Playback of DVD offers crisp picture and sound with no skipping, or frame loss. CD playback is great as well. Several great simulated surround audio options that sound pretty groovy, even without an actual hookup to a surround system.
Remote is functional, but not overly-impressive. Allows for you to program it for use with one other device, presumably your television or sound system. Control functions for the secondary device are pretty limited. Power and volume, basically. I do wish the fast scan function offered more speeds, but you can still blow pretty rapidly back and forth through segments you wish to skip. Remote does have a great feature that allows you to skip forward or back to the next scene marker on the disc. Other units I'm familiar with only have buttons for this function on the unit itself, and not on the remote.
The price point is a little higher than some other 5 disc changers I've seen on the market. However, I've had some bad experiences with lower priced units. I would say that the $50 - $60 extra bucks you might pay for this player will more than pay for itself in reliable, enjoyable use.
If you're looking for an affordable unit for general use, I'd say buy with confidence.

I have been doing some online research for a solid/reliable DVD player under [a certain amount] for a while. Models I have been looking include some very popular ones like Panasonic RV32K (or RV22K sold at [local retailer]), Toshiba 2710 and others, and SONY NS315B/NC600.
For Panasonic, lots of complaints about that 'H02' error code which seems to me a definately bug with their decoding system.
For Toshiba, I also saw lots of quality complaints, like skipping, freezing, looping, etc. The problems are fairly consistant and similar.
For SONY, there are also some complaints, BUT they look like random quality problems instead of design flaws.
Features from NC600 that I give thumb-up are:
1. 'precision drive 2 system' which can read some imprefect disks (at least according to SONY);
2. 5-Disk changer--since I listen to a lot of music CD's. Also lots of DVDs have 2-disk versions in now days.
3. fairly quiet operation. (I've been running on my Xbox for my DVD/CD for a while and man they are noisy!).
I have a DVD ('Snow White' from Disney, new) which freezes in Ch.25 occasionally with my other DVD player, but runs fine with SONY. My Xbox skips (track 18 and after) on my CD -- "GH of America" but runs fine on SONY as well. I only got this player recently, 5/02, from [local retailer] for [dollar amount], not a bad deal, therefore I don't how reliable it will be. Judging from my other SONY products: TV, VCR, cassette player, it should be another good performer as well.
Only puzzle to me is that the model on the Box says "DVP-NC600/B", but on the unit/manual it is "DVP-NC600" with the "/B" part. ...

This DVD player is phenomenal. I have had mine for about 2 years now, and boy, it's been through heckfire and back. It doubles as my CD player and it is always running. I've had it up at school for the past few months and most of last year and my buddies are always messing around with it. The picture is crystal clear and the sound is great. It's loaded will all kinds of cool features that you probably never even knew existed. Anyway, this thing is durable. Don't know what you plan on doing with yours, but mine has fallen off the shelf several times and is constantly getting beer spilled on it by the jokers that frequent my house. The DVD player never seems to mind though. It always does what I ask and never gives me problems. Probably the coolest thing about this DVD player is the lights on the buttons for the disk numbers. The light will be green if there's a disk loaded in that spot and red if there isn't one. It is awesome. You never need to mess around with finding out which slot to put your next disc into. Plus, this is a Sony. How can you go wrong? Mine has lasted me this long and we constantly abuse it. Just think how long it will last if you take care of it! I promise you won't be disappointed with this thing!

By A Customer on January 17, 2002
The unit I bought began freezing and pausing during DVD and skipping during CD play after the 30 day trial period. I sent it back to Sony repair center and they tagged a different problem (jittery picture) which they claimed they fixed. When I got the unit back, the original problem was still there along with a new problem, jittery picture. While I await it's repairs once more, I have read several other reviews from Sound and Vision readers and Audio Review to see that my problem is not unique. Others have reported the same problems. There is some serious defects or flaws in this unit making me wish I never bought it. That said, I do like all the features if I can just get a unit that doesn't fail.
