Front and rear A/V input jacks allow easy connection to other home theatre components, and the units have Dolby Digital and DTS out for connections to like receivers or decoders.
Model PV-DF2000 features a 20-inch (diagonal screen measurement) television screen, and will have a suggested manufacturer’s retail price of $899.95.
