Summary: I was looking for a micro or really small DVD player for my computer desk. To my surprise there doesn't seem to be very many options out there. I did buy one a few years ago for a cheap $40 regular price, but it ended up being just that, a $40 DVD player.
Summary: I bought this unit on an impulse and boy was I impressed. I recently bought RXV-473 which is now in my bedroom for listening to Sony 5 Disc Carousel. The sound of the unit (30 watts) is better than RXV-473 that is rated at 80 watts of RMS. The DRX-730 is definitely the superior amp.

Summary: We purchased a Yamaha DRX-730BL through Amazon.com dealer Dependable Resource. The first unit was defective out of the box and Dependable Resources shipped out a replacement. The replacement model was also defective right out of the box! We shippped it back requesting a full refund.
Summary: At the begining I was planning to buy a Onkyo Bose bundle system 2.1 channel for the staying room, however, I began to search around some other manufacturers and found this Yamaha DRX-730, I choose to buy it without the speakers, I bought speakers separately (JBL ES20BK) I received them this week...
Summary: I've had the yamaha 730 cd/dvd player for a couple of weeks, now, and although I'm glad I bought it because it's little and allows me to add external speakers to a tv in a small, spare room, I find that I use a separate dvd player for watching dvds because the yamaha 730 (at least the one I have)...
