Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great looks, great sound, superior picture for standard def DVD to any other player at his price point and many more expensive even produces a better picture than some Bluray players do with bluray discs. The picture and sound are also better tha if standard DVD are played through Bluray, again upto a certain price point. Easy to use, solidly built and a quality looking item Also plays Super Audi CD. Really impressed.

Confirmed purchaser Lifetime working with electronics.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Image quality is first class, as natural in depth and balance as one would wish. To have image quality
this good, why should i need blu ray. Easy to set up and use, and looks a million dollars.
Bad points:
Sound quality with a dvd with analog outputs is first class. But can tend to be a little heavy with some
CD's. But overall fine, if you dont mind that kind of sound.

COLIN , DUNDALK ,IRELAND

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The combination of this DVD player along with my Pioneer 428xd plasma can make modern day recordings look quite stunning with excellent detail and depth,however some older dvds fare a little worse with this combos somewhat analytical approach making them look soft and grainy. However this result is variable and overall the picture and sound quality are excellent.I have not as yet explored this machines capabilities with upscaling but I believe the result will be much the same . The buld quality and finish of this machine belies it's price and is a perfect match for the Kuro plasma screens.
Bad points:
Slow loading mechanismand also slow to start.

Manufacturer's Description

High quality, high definition
The DV-LX50 operates at the high-end of our DVD player line-up. It has a rigid, double-layered chassis, which allows for a smooth, stable operation of the optical pick-up unit. What this means is that whatever you are playing, you are guaranteed a smooth, stable performance without any noise or interference from external sources.

Plays your SACD’sYou can play your entire DVD and CD collection, including DVD-Audio and SACD. The DV-LX50 is multi-format. The system will even play the multi-media formats from your home PC, including DivX Ultra, Windows Media Videos or Windows Media Audio files: simply burn these on a CD and enjoy files from your PC in your living room.

The system plays high-resolution JPEG photo files with the Photo Viewer. Up until now, these files could only be displayed at the lower, standard DVD resolution. But the scaling ability of the DV-LX50 means that your photographs can now be shown in high-resolution detail.

Plays your SACD’sThe DV-LX50 has an HDMI output, which means it is capable of upscaling video signals to the high definition resolution of 1,920 × 1,080 lines with no loss of quality. The player also has HDMI Control, which means that you can operate its main functions using the remote of your KURO flat screen TV, for example: a simple, coherent entertainment solution.
