The 'A2 can upconvert standard DVDs to resolutions that better match high-definition TV sets, so your existing DVD collection will look better than ever. It also includes a network port for possible future upgrades. And the remote has buttons that glow in the dark, making it easy to operate the player even when the lights are low.
