Since the "V" in DVD stands for "Versatile", Pioneer's engineers have built a machine that excels in both video AND audio. The Elite DV-38A delivers phenomenal reproduction of DVD Video and DVD Audio, due to exclusive features, new technologies, and brick-house construction. Pioneer's PureCinema(tm) provides a progressive scan output that processes the DVD signal completely in the digital domain. DVD-Audio, a format that is changing the way artists create music, boasts superb multi-channel music and super-high- resolution, two-channel music. The DV-38A also includes a CD Digital Direct function, which shortens the signal path and results in the best CD audio possible. The Elite two-year warranty applies.
