Sony's new sleek and slender DVP-NS30 DVD player features built-in MP3 decoding, DVD-R/DVD-RW, DVD+R/DVD+RW (video mode) and Kodak picture CD playback. With Sony's Precision Cinema Progressive and new Precision Drive3 systems, you'll get a picture that is more faithful to the source, video or film, and virtually free of errors that warped discs can produce. High-quality image playback is facilitated using a 12bit/108Mhz Video; while SCART and composite video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.
The DVPNS30 automatically plays data DVDs containing MP3 files and JPEG image files. By searching the disc for available files. Viewing JPEG files can be done by selecting the appropriate image album you wish to view, and can then be viewed individually or via a slideshow, with the added option of displaying the date on which the photo was taken. When JPEG image files and MP3 audio tracks are placed in the same album, you can enjoy a slideshow with sound.
The on-board 192 kHz 24-bit digital-to-analogue audio converter ensures optimum decoding of all disc formats. A Dolby DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signal can be routed through the player's optical digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. If you don't have a surround receiver or six-channel speaker setup, you can still make every movie night the ultimate experience: When you connect a stereo TV or 2 front speakers, Sony's TVS (TV Virtual Surround) lets you enjoy surround sound effects by using sound imaging to create virtual rear speakers. TVS was developed by Sony to produce surround sound for home use using just a stereo TV.
Playback options include quick set-up, disc resume, DVD/CD Text, custom parental control memory, Advanced Smooth Scan and Smooth Slow Modes, instant replay and instant search. You can set two kinds of playback restrictions for a disc, Custom Parental Control which enables you to set playback restrictions so that the player will not play inappropriate discs and Parental Control where playback of some DVD videos can be limited according to a predetermined level such as the of the users. Scenes may be blocked or replaced with different scenes. The same password is used for both Parental Control and Custom Parental Control.
Supplied accessories include a remote control that operates the DVD player and many brands of television. The remote makes chapter select easy, by just pressing the number button of the chapter you wish to play. You can control the sound level, input source, and power of many brands televisions by using the remote.

So, in all it's a great player with the stiff buttons lots of reviewers have already mentioned but that's the only gripe. I hope my previous comments will help someone else as much as 'Frontiertrek's were to me, should they find themselves in the same position as I was in.
Region 1 playback was slightly troublesome at first. The disc would play but with a black and white grainy picture. After a bit of searching on the net for a solution, I discovered I needed to put the player into "RGB playback mode" which was easy enough to do. After that, Region 1 discs all played fine.
Great value for money, and a name you can trust with Sony. Highly recommended.
Take a peek round the back , and you have 3 S-video connections (cable supplied) , and the option to plug in an RGB scart lead or use the coaxial digital connection. The picture and sound when plugged into the S-Video slots on my Sony 28" tv are simply fantastic. My tv doesn`t have virtual surround , but the player comes with this feature built in , and the result from the speakers is amazing.
Setup is simplicity itself. Pick up the remote , and the first thing you notice is that , although not too large , the buttons are all clearly marked and very easy to navigate. The on-screen menus are fairly simple , but neat and uncluttered , which makes jpeg , and mp3 selection hassle free. Unlike some remotes it`s not too heavy either , and a pleasant suprise , is that the battery compartment slides off and on like a dream , without all that fiddling about , which would be good for the elderly or people with hand problems.
So what`s it like to actually use then? Well , the disc tray glides in and out nice and smoothly , and it takes the player a few moments to read the disc. Provided your tv is NTSC compatible , the player will play region 1 dvd`s without any manual intervention. You just have to put the disc in the tray and play it. I`ve also tried it with cd`s , burnt cds , jpeg pictures and mp3s. Whatever disc it has played so far , the sound , image quality , and playback have all been superb.
Your viewing pleasure won`t be effected by the noise of the disc spinning round either , because there isn`t one.Read more ›
The most amazing thing about this DVD is the sound quality. I played my Morrissey DVD on it, and the sound and picture quality was simply stunning! The picture is extremely sharp and full of colour. The eject mechanism is very quiet and smooth. Neither does the disk make any noise spinning round whilst it is playing.
The DVD player can also play many other formats of disks, not just standard DVD films. For the price, you simply can not go wrong with buying this DVD player!
