The Sony DVP-SR510H 1080p Upscaling DVD Player is a versatile entertainer, whether you're using it in the boardroom, classroom or living room. First and foremost, let's talk about that picture quality - it has Precision Cinema Progressive Technology and upscaling via an HDMI connection to a high definition TV, so the DVP-SR510H can make an ordinary DVD look surprisingly close to the quality of a Blu-ray disc.
The provided remote control makes navigation easy - it can operate most major brands of TVs, so there will be one less remote on your coffee table. If you have MP3 or JPEG files burned to DVDs, you can enjoy these using the DVP-SR510H as well. This player can play a wide variety of CD and DVD formats.
More than likely, you may at some point want to switch the movie you're watching and come back to it later. Luckily, this DVD player can remember where in the movie you were when you popped out the last six discs you watched. The DVP-SR510H also does fast (and slow) playback with sound so you can easily find the spot where you were, if you're not playing one of its remembered discs. Since this player also has a child-resistant tray lock, it's great for families with young kids.
With support for Dolby and dts-audio formats, you can connect the player to your home theater system and enjoy immersive sound for all your movies. It also has a coaxial digital out in case your A/V receiver doesn't have HDMI.
One more handy feature is Photo TV HD. It works with select Sony cameras so you can view JPEG pictures in Full HD (1920 x 1080p) when you hook up your SR510H to a high definition set via an HDMI cable. And last but not least, the DVP-SR510H is Energy Star compliant, so in addition to being affordable now it can save you money in the long run.
