The DVD format realizes a level of audio quality beyond that of the conventional music CD. The DVD-V555 is equipped with a 48kHz/16-bit audio D/A converter which assures no noise generation even in cases where the sound signal is re-quantized.
10-bit Video D/A Converter
The DVD-V555 incoporates a 10-bit video D/A converter to achieve even more beautiful reproduction of DVD video images. Thanks to the converter's highly accurate processing performance, the massive data stream that makes up each DVD video frame is faithfully converted into high-definition analog signals resulting in extremely sharp and stable high-quality pictures on the screen.
DTS Digital Output
If you want to enjoy the full excitement of home entertainment, nothing quite compares with the total presence of movie theater sound. That's why Pioneer has equipped the DVD-V555 with DTS digital output. Under DTS sound, which is now gaining widespread attention as a soundtrack option for DVD, recording is performed by greatly reducing the degree of signal compression in order to ensure that the original sound is captured and reproduced even more accurately and vividly. The rich information content of DTS audio signals guarantees an exceptionally high S/N ratio during playback and also reproduces sounds that are delicate, concentrated and firm.
* DTS is effective only when playing back DTS-compatible discs. Also, connection with a DTS decoding-capable amplifier or processor is required.
Video Noise Reduction
DVD delivers exceptionally high picture quality, and these models incorporate a Video Noise Reduction function that helps draw out the full potential of this medium. This function, which thoroughly removes noise without disturbing the image in other ways, results in clear and stable pictures free from jitter and flicker and is effective both during DVD and Video CD playback.
For the most advanced home theater sound ever, the DVD-V555 features a built-in Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder. A powerful amplifier supplies equal power for all 5 channels, including both surround channels. And to ensure really dynamic theater sound, the signal is delivered discretely, channel by channel.
Versatile Karaoke Features
Pioneer has added a host of functions to expand the convenience and enjoyment of Karaoke singing. Among the great features of this model is a totally new Karaoke setup menu. Press the Karaoke Set-Up ket and the functions and parameters for the disk in play can be set at-a-glance via the on-screen display for remarkably improved operability.
