The Zenith DVB712 Upconversion DVD Player is a single-disc, budget DVD player. But if compared to other budget DVD players available it is considered expensive. The DVB712 is a slim, compact DVD player and comes in a smart silver color. It is stylish enough to act as the main DVD player in your home entertainment system, yet compact enough to serve as a second DVD player in a bedroom or kitchen. Connect the unit through its component or S-video outputs to a digital or HD-ready TV and it will deliver smooth 480p resolution progressive scan playback. Connect it via HDMI to a HDTV, however, and it will upscale your DVDs to superior 720p or 1080i resolution. Performance in both is quite satisfactory. The Zenith DVB712 is compatible with a broad array of disc formats, including DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW recordable formats along with dual layer discs. As well as standard audio CDs, music fans will also be able to listen to home burned CD-R and CD-RW, including those encoded with MP3 or WMA digital audio files. Photos can be viewed when loaded with a JPEG picture disc. Unfortunately, as the DVD player can play some home recorded discs without problem, it can reject random discs of the same format. The DVD player can route Dolby Digital Audio and DTS 5.1 channel surround sound signals to a compatible A/V receiver. There are plenty of playback features including slow motion, repeat play, disc resume and chapter skip. Amazingly the DVB712 only displays chapter numbers on screen rather than on the front panel of the player itself. So it means that if you're playing CDs you'll need to have the TV turned on to look for a specific track number. Also features the parental locks. The Zenith DVB712 is perfect for those who only need a basic DVD player.
