What your DVD player must have?
Movie watching is for everybody but not everyone is satisfied with just having a regular set up that includes a TV, DVD player and speaker specially if youíre no expert when it comes to electronic shopping. Isnít great to have a total movie experience for all your private pleasure? Donít just trade the traditional cinematic experience with a lousy setup just because you need to have a DVD player like everyone else.
To achieve a total movie experience at home comparable to the traditional movie theater experience, there are numerous DVD features and enhancements available today you can choose from. Just follow this guide, and you would know what to look for the next time you go shopping.
Wide screen effect
Almost all DVD movies have wide screen options and to be able to enjoy it, you must have a player that can maximize this feature. You can get a model, which has a 9Ē wide screen LCD display with adjustable viewing angles or adjustable built-in 9Ē diagonal wide screen display spacer.
At first, all screens may look similar but they actually differ in quality. The cheaper brands show graininess when observed closely, and if you donít know yet, excellent screen quality can go a long way. Make a comparison check, if you have to before making a purchase.
Aside from the built-in speakers, sound may be improved via Dolby Digital Surround Sound. Check if the unit has an optical digital output for DTS and Dolby Digital Surround Sound. For better performance, plug in a state-of-the-art home theater system. The good news is that you can always enhance. So donít be afraid to study your options when you want more.
Especially for portable players, you can get high quality audio reproduction with headsets. Normally lightweight, itís placed behind the neck (to avoid messing up your hair) or over the head. It delivers full and rich sound so itís always recommended to purchase one to match your player. The plug is usually 3.5 mm with a frequency response of 60 Hz Ė 20 kHz. The soft-foam ear pads make it comfortable to wear.
Get a model that can read DVD-Video, DVD Audio, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, HighMat (all Panasonic portable DVD players have this feature), CD, CD-R/RW, WMA, and MP3. That way, itís multi-functional: Saves you from purchasing too many players.
Some units have FM transmitters and radio features. Usually, the number of presets are 18 FM and 6 AM channels. This is a wonderful treat for those who own a portable player and always on the move.
Battery pack and remote control
Not too long ago, electronic batteries and remote controls were all too large and heavy to carry. Fortunately now there are slim and light battery packs and remote controls. Although the weight and size donít really matter especially if it will be used at home, the choice is yours always. Thereís nothing better than a light electronic gadget.
With these tips, you can better enjoy late-night or in-flight movie watching with less hassles and disturbances.
