Region free as promised

Dmitri of San Francisco, Amazon

  • Summary: Picture, sound the real HI-FI, plays all possible dvd's from all over the world ( I'm a big film and music fun). I've had one of these but not a region-free and had to get rid of it, but now I'm really happy and completed my audio-video set as wanted! However, I'm giving 4 stars because what I found it doesn't have a "slow motion" option. Absolutely everything except this one!

Best Features for Me

da1mink, Adorama
11 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I wanted a Blu-Ray player that had great basic features instead of trying to be an all-in-one product, and this one does. The video and audio are fantastic, and it isn't cluttered up with a lot of extra programming links. My Roku takes care of that. I especially like the front panel layout, and the vibration isolation feet are a nice touch.
  • Pros: Backwards Compatible, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support
  • Cons: Slow Load Time

The only question I have is why can't all DVD players do this?

Great on a budget

  • Excerpt: This guy does what I needed it to do. I went with Yamaha to match my existing RX-A3000 receiver. It isn't the exact "Aventage" line, but still looks quite nice in the rack next to the receiver. It is missing some of the high-end stuff, such as remote/trigger in/out, analog multichannel, etc... also, the display isn't terribly informative. Good news though, is that it's a great deal for the money.
  • Pros: Fast Load, Looks
  • Cons: Limited Connectivity

Falls man einen Yamaha AV Receiver sein eigen nennt, ein absolutes Muß !

H. Fojt "HerbieF", Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: Habe mir einen RX-V675 Audio/Video Receiver von Yamaha zugelegt und dazu, vorher noch ohne es besser zu Wissen, den obigen Blue Ray Player. Der war nämlich im Nachhinein absolut wichtig, da der AV Receiver über das Netz nur Musik spielen kann, keine Fotos und keine Videos (Warum er Audio/V i d e o Receiver heisst, ist mir ein Rätsel). Gott Sei Dank bringt diese Funktionalität der Blue Ray mit, hier kann ich aus dem Netz Videos schauen und auch Fotos vorführen.

  • Pros: Лаконичный дизайн, качество картинки достойное ( на Panasonic 42DT50)
  • Cons: Пульт д/у сажает батарейки в режиме ожидания за 3-4 дня ( за 12 дней использования посадил два комплекта новых GP а затем и Duracell)- подумываю подключить контакты д/у к автомобильному аккумулятору)))

lediglich HDMI als Ausgang

Paned51 "Ed", Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: Das Gerät ist mit einem YAMAHA RX-V373 AV-Receiver via HDMI verbunden. Der BD-S473 ist subjektiv ein gutes Gerät mit Titelanzeige im Frontdisplay (eher selten bei Blue-Ray Playern!), auch die Fernbedienung ist gut gelungen, zudem spielt er viele DVD-Formate problemlos ab. Nachteil ist, dass speziell für CD's (rein Audio) keine Audioausgänge vorhanden sind, auch kein separater Digitaler Audioausgang!
