The frequency response is also largely the same. Alternatively, you can upgrade that clattering ancient dinosaur deck for a shiny new machine that plays LDs and DVDs. The remote supplied with the US model of the player i.
You have a number of other ways of searching scenes. Chances are it has both-sides play and all the features sans DVD offered by this deck. Random play is provided too – this being more useful on audio CDs than movies – and you have repeat.
In fact, only the DTS logo tells you it’s a different breed. Chapter 7, the Hidden Document, brings lifelike surround. On this player, with this disc, you hear just how true-to-life THX stereo surround can be. The choice is yours.

To my amazement it looked terrific. However, this function has the disadvantage of switching off the OSDs onscreen displays. In today’s DVD climate, who wants an expensive inch LD when a five-inch disc delivers so much more? But as with all DVD decks, its the ‘buried’ features that are more important. 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.
Digging deep into the mechanism revealed why. 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.

And if you’ve been playing the B side of an LD then want to play a DVD, you can wait even longer before a picture appears on screen. Long before S-VHS and VHS hi-fi were invented, LaserVision as it was then termed delivered ‘broadcast’ resolution up to lines and stereo sound with superb dynamics.
This engages a noise filter for shaving high frequency detail from the picture. On to sharper things.
If, like me, you’re a home cinema fan of a certain age, chances are you’ll have a laser disc collection. You also have a screen saver that prevents tube burn should the same OSD be displayed for many hours.
On the DVL, menu and mode keys bring setup and special functions – all displayed via onscreen graphics which vary according to the disc loaded. Yet ranged against other DVD decks it’s a tad too expensive and bulky. It carries clips from Titanic, Dragonheart, Daylight and many others.
