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.
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.
Summary: Great all around product !!! The 3D and Bluray uploads quickly and flawlessly. This replaces a Samsung BD D6500 that stopped loading 3D and Blurayin about a three months...a total piece of junk....will never buy another Samsung product other that LED TV. The Yamaha app is just sweet and works great since I have all the gear in another room including a Yamaha 673 receiver. I can control everything from my iPad or iPhone.
Pros: Quick upload of 3D and Bluray DVDs. Great picture without any hangs Outstanding remote control App for iOs devices
Cons: A bit expensive...so was the original Samsung 3D player and it was junk.
Summary: I am very much impressed at the warmth, clarity and crispness of the music I am now getting from the Yamaha S473. The very inexpensive previous blue ray I had just didn't have all of these necessary attributes; especially clarity. When I hooked the Yamaha into my system I immediately noticed an increase in the warmth and clarity of anything I played from pop music to classical.
Pros: Ease of hookup, better response and more warmth from music, Netflix
Summary: Ever see those movie theater chains that say, "Go big or go home..." They have you convinced that the theater experience is the only one to have. Up until this point, I somewhat ascribed to this concept. I had no idea what a really excellent Blu Ray player would do for my system. The Yamaha BD-S473 replaced the free Blu Ray player which came with my Samsung TV. Right off the bat, the Yamaha has controls which are easier to use.
Pros: Real direct access controls rather than having to use the remote Easy to use Faster loading than our old player Beautiful sound and picture quality Integrates well with Yamaha system
