Pioneer DV-420

Not only have Pioneer been busy with their new blu-ray players for 2009, they have also released a new upconverting DVD player, with a twist. The Pioneer DV-420 upconverting DVD player allows you to rip audio CD tracks into MP3 files and then store them onto a connected USB storage device, or even directly onto your connected mp3 player.

The Pioneer DV-420 will also upconvert your DVDs to 1080p full HD format, as well as also playing back media files from a USB device. As it’s Pioneer you can be sure that the DV-420 will be of great quality, and also get the bonus USB features.

By connecting a USB device the Pioneer DV-420 can playback audio files (MP3/WMA/AAC/), DivX, VMV video files, and JPG photos.

Look for the Pioneer DV-420 in June ’09 for an estimated price of $90.
