Two New DVD-Audio Players From JVC UK

Two new DVD-Audio players feature in JVC’s 2002 product line-up for region 2 (UK) markets.

The first is something of a rarity, a combination DVD player/recorder, the JVC HM-VDR10EK. Following Panasonic and Hitachi’s leads, the JVC will use DVD-RAM technology alongside a DVD-R option to enable what the company describes as “optimum versatility”. The HM-VDR10EK supports simultaneous record and playback and is compatible with DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Video-CD, CD-DA and CD-R discs.

The second new product comes in the form of the XV-NA7, an ultra-slim DVD-Audio player with DVD-Video, Video-CD, CD-DA, CD-R and CD-RW playback capabilities plus MP3 compatibility from CD-R/RW.

The JVC XV-NA7 includes integral 5.1 DVD-Audio, Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG-Audio decoders, making it one of the most format-flexible region 2 DVD-Audio machines currently available.

The XC-NA7 is designed to partner JVC’s RX-DVR5 slim-line receiver, both in terms of operating logic, system integration and cosmetic appearance.
