This expands dynamic range up to an audible level, smoothening waveforms to restore fidelity to the original sound, in all of dvl-199 naturalism and subtlety.

The larger tray has indents for inch manjal eight-inch LDs. A Quick Turn function shortens the time to change from side A to B. Yet ranged against other DVD decks it’s a tad too expensive and bulky.

The rear panel also has a remote terminal, allowing control via other Pioneer products and a systems switch to suit the colour standards of your TV.

If you have an old machine that’s creaking at the edges, this Pioneer is clearly for you. If you’ve used an old LD player you’ll know that trick play has been disc dependent – only CAV titles allowing these features. Many discs have 4: In the opening sequence, the ship approaches the camera and you can see every porthole, every rowlock on the ill-fated lifeboats.

Sean Connery’s vocals are locked to centre, yet the whoosh of the wings and sound effects of the water meadow engulf you in surround. The DVL is Pioneer’s second generation combi. Close-ups of a French horn shows considerable detail in the instrument, but via the composite feed it appears as a brass mush with purple interference at the edges – all the detail disappears.


Finished in satin gold, it looks visually similar to its predecessor, carrying the similar bulk – w x dvl-91 x d mm – and weight – 9. Upgrading from LD, though, is another matter entirely. This jumps to attention as soon as a disc is dvl-91. The composite figures averaged around -2dB worse on both decks. Otherwise, a tad bulky and expensive.

Bob Tomalski investigates the ‘little and large’ machine If, like me, you’re a home cinema fvl-919 of a certain age, chances are you’ll have a laser disc collection. Random play is provided too – this being more useful on audio CDs than movies – and you have repeat.

Front panel controls are minimal. Then there’s the lack of RGB on the Scart output. But as with all DVD decks, its the ‘buried’ features that are more important. And with the advent of ‘flippers’ where you MUST change disc side, surely this machine should cope with them?

Viewed as composite, the resolution is sullied by cross-colour bleed. You also have a screen saver that prevents tube burn should the same OSD be displayed for many hours.

Yet strangely, composite and S-video didn’t show the same difference, compared with the Titanic and Mahler sequences. Set in five levels it shows elapsed time, chapter time, title information, subtitle details and, most usefully, a bit rate meter that allows critical viewers to look for digital artefacts at places where the bit rate level is at its lowest. DVDs seem less susceptible.


The few minutes of Titanic were stunning, both visually and audibly. Although S-video does deliver great images and is more useful for linking via AV amplifiers it’s a pity that this player doesn’t deliver better quality signal output.

On this player, with this disc, you hear just how true-to-life THX stereo surround can be.

Not so on the Chances are it has both-sides play and all the features sans DVD offered by this deck. If, like me, you’re a home cinema fan of a certain age, chances are you’ll have a laser disc collection. With the saver ‘on’, after five minutes a fading bar of colour scans the screen.

Basically, such processing reduces noise at the expense of resolution. Finally, there are some embellishments that we might reasonably expect on this machine, given that it’s a third-generation DVD player and a second-generation combi device.

This is useful for playing DVD audio-only discs that use the higher bit rate for audiophile recordings – such as the small catalogue of titles from Chesky Records and Denon. Please see the manuals page. Around the back there’s a bulge that serves as a housing for the laser mechanism. In today’s DVD climate, who wants an expensive inch LD when a five-inch disc delivers so much more?
