Excerpt: Yamaha has had an interesting range of Blu-ray players over the years. It is one of those companies (and it is by no means the only one) that has used Blu-ray tech from other companies at its players’ cores, tweaking them to best work in a Yamaha system. The first Yamaha player I looked at was clearly based on Panasonic, for example, with similar menus and functions. The next two, a couple of years later, were based on the Sharp platform.
Yamaha BD-S671 review: Well built, with basic features
Good Gear Guide.au
5 November 2012
Summary: Yamaha's BD-S671 is an extremely well built and well designed Blu-ray player. We can't fault its operation, picture quality or industrial design. However, it doesn't have the same extensive feature-set as Blu-ray players available from mainstream brands like Sony, Samsung or LG.
Pros: Every conceivable audio and video codec supported, iPhone app control works well, Networking is seamless
Excerpt: Yamahas neuer 3D-Player BD-S671 passt gut zum Design aktueller AV-Receiver des Hauses. Zum Preis von 280 Euro sind moderne Netzwerk-Applikationen sowie tiefgehende Videoregler an Bord. Sie enthalten erstmals ein gut funktionierendes Farbmanagement für sechs Farben.
