Summary: I got this DVD player bundled with an HTIB from Onkyo and there has been no turning back. It supports HDMI out and combined with the receiver, up to 7 speakers. All DVD's are upconverted perfectly and I have rarely seen any visual artifacts. The remote is intuitive and the setup is pretty minimal. I have thrown in every possible format and it has picked it up without any complaints. Note, this does not play BluRay DVDs.
Excerpt: Compatibility: Like most DVD players the DV-SP405 DVD player isn’t multi-region capable which was a problem for me playing overseas DVDs, but apart from that no problems. Issues: I’ve had no issues playing DVDs, yet. Which is great because I don’t really want to send this awesome looking DVD player back to where it came from.
Summary: Purchased this after my old Onkyo DR-90 stopped working. This unit is great. The picture quality using the HDMI port and digital coax audio. Watching movies with the DVD player is worth it. And it's a great price for an upscaling player from Onkyo.
Summary: The quality of the product reminds me of Made in Japan boomboxes of 80's/ Very solid build. Awesome picture and sound. Good menu. Cons: No usb port. The remote looks cheap and doest match to the quality of the player.
Summary: Simply put, I bought this to round out my Onkyo stereo system. As I have only the cheap model it replaced to compare it with, I'll give it 5 stars for it's excellent build, quiet operation and good looks
Summary: Onkyo has been a mid level component manufacturer for many years, and has produced some of the best equipment at a reasonable price. Once again, Onkyo has outdid the competition in their affordable components product line. The DV-SP405 DVD player has exceptional optics, great sound, and all the bells and whistles to make any avid audiophile happy without a exorbitant price tag.[...
Pros: Awesome Sound, Consistent Performance, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, High Quality Picture, Quality Optics
Summary: UNTIL NOW THIS DVD PLAYER HAS DONE THE JOB, AND I HAVE HAD IT FOR 7 MONTHS ALREADY . IT PRESENTS GREAT PICTURE QUALITY, PLAYS CD'S FLAWLESSLY WITHOUT SKIPPING OR ANY SOUND MALFUNCTIONS AND LOOKS GREAT WITH MY ONKYO 7.1 SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM. DEFINITELY A GREAT BUY.
Summary: Never had such a difficult time receiving the product. 1. Wrong product (Sony unit, instead of Onkyo unit) was delivered. 2. Replacement did not ship as the customer representative promised. 3. DHL has such a unfriendly service and very inflexible about delivery options.
