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: 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
