Cary Audio Design DVD 7
high performance DVD/CD player with HDMI, component, composite, and S-Video
outputs. This has the same basic audio circuitry as the acclaimed Cary
Purchased the DVD-7 on Ebay a year ago from a seller who said it had been used as a display model. I received the Cary in excellent cosmetic shape with all paperwork, packaging and clean remote. What's happened unfortunately is it has stopped reading DVDs and does play CD's. According to Cary, DVDs are more difficult for the laser to play and is a sign that it needs replacing. The DVD-7 was manufactured in 2006, even though it has not been played much, a laser tends to have around a 10 year life span. Therefore I'm selling the DVD-7 as is, marking it down as a way to leave extra money for the laser replacement/fix.
It also has a variable output (XLR and RCA) to directly drive an amplifier (no preamp needed if this is your only
source). 64 steps on the variable outputs. Digital audio
outputs include optical and coaxial digital. Stereo analog outputs include both
RCA and XLR. The DVD7 itself weighs nearly 35 lbs.
The DVD-7 unit, original box/packing materials,
manual, power cord, and remote are all included.
The Cinema Series DVD 7 is a high performance DVD player that offers 1080p video from regular DVD disks. It will work with ‘early adopters’ video displays. Linked video output settings from 480p to as high as 1080p are available from the HDMI and RGB+HV outputs plus 480i to 1080p settings from the interlaced or progressive component video outputs. In addition, the DVD 7 is an audiophile grade CD player that is using Burr Brown 1792u digital to analog converters to decode CD disks.
