The DVD-1940 universal DVD player offers upscaling to 1080p, utilising the Faroudja FLi2301 DCDi chipset, and comes with five Image Mode memories allowing the user to fine-tune picture quality to their own preferences.

The player also features additional circuit enhancements, offering discrete interlaced and progressive video digital-audio converters, and discrete high performance PCM-1738 Burr Brown Audio DACs. Priced at £249.99.

Both units come in either black or silver styling, and are available this month.
