State-of-the-art technology can coexist with the convenience of 5-disc playback. And the DPC-5.3 is a beautifully designed, carefully engineered example of how well (this seems to stop short). The DPC-5.3 begins with a heavy duty, shielded power supply that provides clean, dependable, noise-free power for stable operation unit's functions. In addition to a progressive scan output, the dual laser design and the high-resolution 96kHz/24-bit DACs deliver accurate, pristine sound from DVDs, Audio CDs, Video CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs and even MP3 encoded discs. The back panel provides more than enough outputs to satisfy the needs of even complex home theater systems. There are optical and coaxial digital outputs, a pair of gold plated analog outputs as well as Composite, S-video and Component video outputs. Additional performance/convenience features include Direct Digital Path and VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) for unrivaled audio performance, parallel video outputs to easily send the video signal to a second room, a true CD shuffle feature and for ease of use, a bi-directional RS-232 port, rear IR inputs and a full function remote.
