Editorial Review

Created for first-time users, Sony's RDR-GX300 DVD recorder offers the widest selection of recording and viewing choices available, handling both DVD+RW/+R and DVD-RW/-R discs. It even includes an IR blaster for satellite and cable-box control. Instead of fumbling with 2 remote controls when using the timer function to record your favorite programs, the RDR-GX300's remote lets you select the channel directly from your set-top box(es).

An easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) grants easy recording from broadcast programs via off-air antenna, cable, or satellite receivers. Recording features include chasing playback and simultaneous recording and playback (in DVD-RW VR mode) for a greater recording and viewing flexibility. Chasing playback lets you rewind the recorded material while a program is still recording to view and catch up to the real time recording. Simultaneous recording and playback lets you watch pre-recorded content while recording new content to the same disc.

The RDR-GX300 also features Time Base Correction, pre-frame noise reduction, and pre-video equalizer technologies that rebalance and equalize video content before it's recorded onto a DVD, improving the original source content even before the encoding process begins. In the output phase, the RDR-GX300 recorder combines frame noise reduction, block noise reduction, and video equalizer technologies to produce a rich and textured visual with minimal picture interference from background artifacts or distortion.

Finally, the recorder offers proprietary DVD playback technology called Precision Cinema Progressive, which incorporates Pixel-by-Pixel I/P Conversion technology to augment and balance DVD-video elements. You'll need a high-definition or HD-ready television to appreciate this process. A 12-bit/108 MHz video D/A converter ensures exceptional picture quality for an unforgettable viewing experience, while audio decoding occurs at an amazing 192 kHz/24-bits.
