Yamaha BD-A1010 Aventage Universal 3D Blu-ray Player

 

Last year, Yamaha released the Aventage product line, which included first several A/V receivers, then also a Blu-ray player. The Aventage product line is Yamaha's new premiere brand, similar to Sony's "ES", and Pioneer's "Elite." Last year I reviewed...

The Yamaha BD-A1010 is a fine, full-featured Blu-ray player, with most of the options one would want. Picture quality is good to excellent, especially for HD material, and navigation speed and design was quite good. However, for the same suggested...

Does everything well and with class.

 

This plays all disk types well, but the Media features with USB and CD\/DVDr is excellent. It plays captured Mpeg4 videos and almost every other format out there. The versatility of the rear USB port is cool with the front port available for regular...
