On screen it became a disappointing wishy-washy image, lacking anything that could be called ‘resolution’. More like Jurassic Murk! Upgrading from LD, though, is another matter entirely. A further sonic feature for DVDs is dynamic range control of loud effects during late night listening.

Yet strangely, composite and S-video didn’t show the same difference, compared with the Titanic and Mahler sequences. That’s assuming you’re using an S-video connection.

This jumps to attention as soon dvl-9919 a disc is loaded. With HQ engaged the spectrum analyzer displayed a wholly unsharp Pioneer DVL Approximate street price: To cut a long story short in fact the time it took to read the instruction book the problem was the ‘s LD default of the HQ highly questionable?

The AM amplitude modulated chroma noise is Then there’s the changeover time from the A to B side. The composite figures averaged around -2dB worse on both decks.

Also, you have manaul terminals for stereo audio and composite video – plus a 4-pin miniDIN for S-video. The frequency response is also largely the same. Set in five levels it shows elapsed time, chapter time, title information, subtitle details and, most usefully, a bit rate meter that allows critical viewers to look for digital artefacts at places where the bit rate level is at its lowest.


Finished in satin gold, it looks visually similar to dvo-919 predecessor, carrying the similar bulk – w x h x d mm – and weight – 9. A digital frame store gives these functions on CLV titles too. For many quality-conscious viewers, it soon became the prime carrier for movies, mxnual to Pioneer’s undying efforts to market NTSC-compatible players in Britain, plus the availability of US titles – albeit ‘under the counter’ or via mail order. To my amazement it looked dgl-919.

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.

The separation is stunning.

It was worse than a worn VHS print. Otherwise, a tad bulky and expensive. You could purchase the Pioneer top-of-range DV for? Yet ranged against other DVD decks it’s a tad too expensive and bulky.


A Quick Turn function shortens the time to change from side A to B. With the saver ‘on’, after five minutes a fading bar of colour scans the screen. Why doesn’t it play both sides of a DVD? Many discs have 4: You also have a screen saver that prevents tube burn should the same OSD be displayed for many hours.

It’s a tad better than the earlier DVL, but in purely technical terms it’s fairly average compared with the best players on the market. In summary, the DVL is not a bad performer. Where the new DVL fails is chroma crosstalk. Based on past experience with the predecessor DVL, the newcomer had to be good. In the opening sequence, the ship approaches the camera and you can see every porthole, every rowlock on the dcl-919 lifeboats.


If you have an old machine that’s creaking at the edges, this Pioneer is clearly for you. On to sharper things. The few minutes of Titanic were stunning, both visually and audibly.

This also allows it to play CD-recordable and CD-rewriteable discs faultlessly. The rear panel also has a remote terminal, allowing manhal via other Pioneer products and a systems switch to suit the colour standards of your TV.

And with the advent of ‘flippers’ where you MUST change disc side, surely this dlv-919 should cope with them? 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.

That said, ‘chipped’ versions are becoming available, but of course they cost more cash. The choice is yours. As John Goodman taps his way along the walls listening for the concealed safe, you hear the reverberations behind you.

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. In practice this feature will be rarely used, given the paucity of MPEG multi-channel titles.

In the lab I made some tests. Yet there’s something missing. In fact, only the DTS logo tells you it’s a different breed.
