Summary: Player as expected. Amazing sound from the analog outputs. I compared the sound of the player (A-B test) with the sound from top of the line PS audio DAC, and in most cases the sound was identical. Also great picture, but you can judge that the player was designed with audio as top priority, and they succeeded very well.
Summary: Please understand that this Blu-Ray player has only briefly been connected to any TV monitor. I have no opinion of its ability to play movies. I bought it only so that I could play SACDs and home-burned DVD-ROMs containing high resolution (96kHz x 24bit FLAC) audio download files in my living room. I am very pleased with its sound. I had earlier bought an Oppo BDP-103 for use playing music and DVDs in the bedroom.
Summary: Decent construction quality. Supports various audio formats such as SACD, DVD-Audio, 192/24 FLAC. But the 3D performance can make you cross-eyed. Prometheus 3D is the ultimate test - the flaw is blatantly obvious during the opening waterfall scene and it only gets worse from there. Though I love the audio support, the flawed 3D is a deal-breaker for me.I contacted Yamaha on two different occasions - they simply did not seem interested in fixing it.
Summary: these guys first of all sent a receiver and not a bluray player.then I had to wait for a reply to send it back they didn't even realize their mistake which show they have no clue what they have in stock,then they made me pay for shipping it back to them,at no time did they thank me for catching their mistake which would have been a difference of 800.00 dollars their loss of course.i found the servise to be horrible and do not recommend them to anyone.the Yamaha bluray I...
Summary: Bought this Blu-ray player to complement my Yamaha receiver. Player is as slow as others have warned. Remote is also poorly designed. Player hangs up intermittantly playing regular CDs. I'm returning to Amazon pronto. Very disappointing!
