The Sony SLV-N81 four-head VCR is a step up from most video recorders, as it coordinates between your VCR and cable box/DirecTV receiver using a cable mouse unit. This allows users to take advantage of the Pluscode numbers published in many TV directories, which include the date and time of the selected program. Merely enter the Pluscode number when using the VCR’s programming mode, and the recording timer is set. The VCR’s video performance is ensured by the four-head recording and playback, which enables two speeds for SP mode and two speeds for EP mode. The slower EP mode is nearly as sharp as the SP mode due to the 19-micron heads, which reduce distortion and deliver a clear, digital-like picture. In addition, the device employs a hi-fi audio recording system, which delivers a wide dynamic range and full audio frequency response.
Other features include auto tape speed, which automatically adjusts the tape speed from SP to EP if the programmed recording time runs longer than the remaining tape; adaptive picture control, which tests each tape and adjusts the playback and recording to receive the best picture quality; and commercial pass, which zips past unwelcome program interruptions. The SLV-N81 also employs plug-and-play setup, which automatically tunes the channels and sets the clock so users can enjoy the device straight out of the box. Other features include an eight-event timer, auto head cleaning, a multilingual onscreen display, a parental lock feature, and front composite inputs for connecting to a camcorder or game system. Other inputs and outputs include a coaxial connector, an additional set of composite inputs, an S-link connector, and a set of composite outputs. In addition, the SLV-N81 is Energy Star compliant.
