Never wrote a review because I didn't have the time ...

Michael Rolle "economy booster", Amazon

  • Summary: Never wrote a review because I didn't have the time to spare, but this unit is slow as molasses, should have returned it early on. Glitchy at times for no apparent reason and it is isolated from other electronics so that is not an issue. Finally writing the review because the drive unit failed and the cost for the part is 160.00!! More than half the cost of the entire unit.

Good, But Problems

SHM1776, Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: Have owned this for about 18 months. During the last few months the player has had picture and audio problems with discs that are easily handled by a $70 Sony. The Sony is a year old. Cleaning the BD 1010 lens has not helped. Firmware is up to date. Tempted to replace this with the 1020 and hope for better luck, but maybe buying cheap players is the way to go.

Great Movies but Unacceptable CD performance and other problems

Houckster, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • Summary: Though I've had problems with Yamaha products over the years but I thought this player sure looked like a winner so I decided to give Yamaha another chance. The BD-A1010 does play movies beautifully including Blu-Ray and DVD titles so good on Yamaha for this. After that, however, it's all down hill. The problems with this machine are substantial.

works great, for awhile, recommend newer model bd-a1020

Amanda Weaver, Amazon

  • Summary: Buy the bd-a1020. The bd-a1010 appears to be an awesome yamaha product, but that model sucks. The networking feature quit working after 2 months, then it stopped playing SACD's, then CD's, then DVD's, and then the soundtracks to blu-ray movies would not play, even though the movie was still on the screen. Our household is not the only one with these issues, either.

NO SUPPORT

J. Buhrman, Amazon
28 March 2012
  • Summary: Purchased the BD-A1010 player in November of 2011. My interest is the ability to play numerous discs and file formats. This player cannot play wav files produced from a CD using Windows Media Player. The wav files are the supported format, 16bit 2 channel stereo 44.1KC sample rate. Windows Media player adds information to the wav file header that the player cannot understand, resulting with the file not played.

won't play one DVD without skipping!!

Duwayne A. Stewart "stew", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this blu-ray player because it matched my Yamaha RX-A2000 receiver. As far as looks go, it looks great and matches the receiver great. The only problem I have is it won't play a blu-ray disc the whole way through. It always goes to the home screen sometime in the play mode. I have contacted Amazon and they say it is past the return policy deadline. I have contacted Yamaha , and they haven't gotten back to me yet!

Worth the wait

HiDefBear "HiDefBear", Amazon

  • Summary: I hemmed and hawed over getting this universal Blu-Ray play from the day it was released but never made the commitment. It didn't help that Amazon always seemed to be out of stock either. And there are certainly plenty of (much) less inexpensive Blu-Ray players out there. But I was in need of replacing my previous universal player if I wanted to continue enjoying my collection of DVD-A and SACDs (I was an early adapter), and so I took a chance.

Universal disc playback that treats your CDs right

mediageek, Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: The BD-A1010BL is my first blu-ray player, though I've owned a variety of CD and DVD players before. I bought this model because I wanted a universal disc player with above average audio quality when playing music-only material like CDs or high-resolution sources, like SACDs. I've listened to a wide variety of DVD and blu-ray players and generally found their analog outputs to be lacking, typically emphasizing the worst aspects of digital audio, imparting a certain...
