A good reader for professionals

Olivier52, 01.08.2016
I bought this player for home-cinema use, following the breakdown of my previous drive (very big brand and a priori high-end, still under warranty but economically irreparable for the after-sales service) which disgusted me with the equipment General public.


The positive points :

The quality of construction a priori robust, unrelated to current mainstream junk.

Very complete connectivity (except the second HDMI): Digital audio output, stereo analog (RCA and balanced XRL) and analog multichannel. Analog (composite and component) and HDMI digital video output. The connectors are of very good quality.

The playback of the DVDs dezonated, even if it is not marked anywhere. I have not tried with BluRay.

The rack format 1U, very compact, with removable angles.

Picture quality and sound very good.

Unlike consumer readers who bug once a week, this one never crashes.


The negative points :

No aesthetic concern. The inscriptions in bright white on black background in front are surely practical to find in a little illuminated, but very showy in a living room. The apparent screw on the top of the cabinet is particularly ugly.

The display is horrible: It only shows the total duration, which is a heresy on a CD. BlueRay with its rotating crown is visually disturbing and the brightness of the display is far too strong (not adjustable). Very annoying in a living room. I had to stick some gelatin in front to mitigate.

The remote control is ugly, looks very cheap, and the layout of the keys is particularly counter-intuitive: The pause / fast forward / backtrack sequences are trying for the nerves (I press STOP once on 2).

No built-in image processing. This requires using the TV settings.

Waking time very long. You must wait before loading a disc.

Unique digital audio output setting. Can not send multichannel encoded streams on the SPDIF output and not on the HDMI. It goes inevitably together.

A single HDMI output. No possibility to separate the video stream from the audio stream.


Assessment: A reader visibly designed to satisfy professionals, but not necessarily very suitable for a salon use, and it is a shame because this reader has rare qualities. For now, I do not regret my choice and I hope that the reliability will be there.
