Bought Yamaha Blu Ray player 1-2 years ago and it ...

Bill Rybinski, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Bought Yamaha Blu Ray player 1-2 years ago and it skipped and froze, Thought it was the discs but tried them in my Samsung and they worked. Bought another Yamaha [the one I am rating] and it has the same problem, skip and freeze. This is with 2 new BR discs I bought from you. I went and bought another BR player [Samsung] but have not received it yet. I don't have the box for the Yamaha. What should I do?

Awful performance

E. Miller, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: My wife bought this device for me for father's day last year. I've been working away from home since then and haven't had time to really work out the kinks on the DVD player, but have now come to the conclusion that this is truly a poorly performing piece of technology. The web based system regularly freezes up when accessing Netflix and the whole device regularly freezes up preventing startup or shut down.

Simply perfect

Víctor, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm from Spain, and currently living in México, and I have music DVD's from almost every single part of the world, and all of them work perfect in this amazing device. And it is not only that: it is the perfect partner for my Yamaha's amplifier A-S700: the quality of the sound when your listen music is really impressive.

YAMAHA BD-S473 Multi Region Zone Code Free 2D/3D Blu Ray DVD Player

Michael, Amazon

  • Summary: Looks very cheap and I have doubts about durability of this chinese player. That is all I can say about my recent purchase. If I knew in advance that it is made by chinese, I would never buy it. But it's me.

Sketchy at first, but seems better currently.

K. Kuhnsman, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: I rarely write a review, but thought that this player may need some issues addressed. The player had been inconsistent when starting, opening, loading, and when turning off. Quite a bit of stuff not working correctly. It seemed very prone to hanging up and just stopping, requiring the plug be pulled and replaced, and then restarting the unit.

Yamaha excellence as to be expected!

yourpointis, Amazon

  • Summary: The audio output on this bluray is incredible. I purchased this to match my aventage receiver. I did a blind test with this bluray vs my Sony BD-P185 and I was astounded at the difference. This player is incredible just like everything that Yamaha makes.

movies freeze, poor GUI

a Smith, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Movies freeze during play and the unit locks up requiring a re-boot (unplug/plug back in) to get it working again. The latest firmware update (Feb 2014) did not resolve this issue. GUI is not very intuitive.
