Archive home videos and share them with loved ones on a shiny DVD using the Apex DRX-9000. This DVD recorder features a built-in, 181-channel NTSC tuner so you can burn of-air programming right to write-once or recordable media, freeing you from reliance on poor-quality, hard-to-navigate VHS tapes. It comes with DVD editing software to help you make more professional-looking discs.

The DRX-9000 also happens to be a first-rate DVD player, offering high-end progressive-scan video outputs (viewable on high-definition and HD-ready TVs), JPEG image and Kodak Picture CD playback (watch a slideshow right on your TV!), and full compatibility with home-burned MP3 and WMA (Windows Media Audio) CDs. Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DRX-9000 stands ready to deliver the full potential of DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, providing higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. In any case, standard composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television, and Apex's active full screen function (AFF) helps resize widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio) video images to fill 4:3 aspect-ratio sets.

For sound, a set of left/right analog-audio outputs channels audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each optical and coaxial) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.
