It is a hifi connoisseurs DVD player, state of the art, and plays DVD video, video cd and normal cd's. Lets just go through a brief description of the 4 types of digital formats available when this machine was created, Dolby digital, DTS, MPEG and linear PCM.

Excerpt: The Pioneer DV-626D is a great DVD player – and it should be in the top 5 list at the top of the page. Unfortunately, it isn’t but that doesn’t stop it from being an excellent piece of hardware. I don’t personally own this player, but I have a friend who does and I’ve seen enough of it to be impressed. I own a Toshiba 2109B and can easily make comparisons between the two.
Excerpt: Pioneer is well respected manufacturer for top quality home cinema products, and it ranks amongst the top few manufacturers of DVD players, up there with Sony, Toshiba and Panasonic. Pioneer is well known for impeccable build quality and excellent performance and the DV-626D is a brilliant example of just what Pioneer can do. After searching though review magazines and browsing the internet, I decided the pioneer was the one to go for.
Excerpt: I have had this product for a year and can not fault the product in any way. The picture quality is true and uninterupted, the remote control is a wonder to use and is of good quality - particularly compared to some of the Sony DVD remotes I have seen and used. The sound output is nothing less than excellent the surround sound capabilities are as good as being in a cinema itself.
Excerpt: I purchased the Pioneer 626 a few months ago and I have been very pleased. Before purchasing I read some reviews on other sites and compared it between other models of similar price and the Pioneer seemed to come out tops. First of all the picture quality of the Pioneer is superb. Clean, crisp and colourful, it's very impressive. Now the 626 comes with a variety of sound settings for users with standard TV speakers ranging up to pro-Logic and full 5.1 set-ups.
Excerpt: Pioneer's DV-626D is a very nice machine. For about $390 you get DVD player with built-in both Dolby® Digital 5.1 and DTS decoders, which allows you to use 6 analog connections on the back of the player to extract excellent 3D dynamic sound. The player has excellent picture quality; the image is very crisp, super sharp and has very natural colors. In fact, the sharpness is even a little bit too excessive.
Excerpt: This DVD has a very cool(the gold one) look but of course what we want is a high performance DVD player and this DVD player from Pioneer didn't disappoint me. It comes with a built-in Dolby Digital Decoder and 5.1 Channel Analogue Audio Outpost. This model also features a newly developed Digital Video Noise ReductionIC that specifically separates disturbing noise from video signals. This gives users pleasing voice free clear pictures.
Excerpt: This is a higly recommended player with an excellent feature set and given its quality the price isn't bad either. I bought this to replace my Samsung 807 when it proved to have problems with a number of discs. I'd already amassed a large number of DVDs so though it was worth investing in a decent player. All the reviews I read for this unit were positive so it seemed the ideal choice. So far I've not been disappointed.
Excerpt: I purchased the 626 about a month ago based upon very positive reviews in a couple of trusted independent mags, and I can't say I've been disappointed. As with most DVD's the picture quality surpasses that of video by lightyears, and the sound quality is truly, truly impressive. I've got mine hooked up to a 28" Sony TV (not widescreen unfortunately), with sounds via a NAD 314 out of Wharfdale Modus 3's, interconnects for audio are Cambridge Audio Pacifics and the visuals...
