Yamaha BD-S473 Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

Blu-ray players are everywhere. Every manufacturer has a slew of models to compete. Alex Lezcano takes a look at the Yamaha BD-S473 to see how it stacks up against the offerings of the market.

The BD-S473 performs at a high level with 1080p content on Blu-ray discs ; The player supports 3D playback ; The BD-S473 is DLNA-certified and compatible with a lot of media formats, including MKV and FLAC ; The Yamaha player is nice and slim, so it...

Yamaha BD-S473 Blu-ray player

 

The Yamaha BD-S473 is a low- to mid-priced player that is great for playing discs but could do more with its smart features.

Good overall disc-playing performance ; Perfect progressive scan of interlaced discs ; Good value for money

No frame stepping or slow motion ; Problems accessing network media

The Yamaha BD-S473 isn't the cheapest Blu-ray player, but it is one of the cheapest ones that will allow the fine control over the video output than underpins the very best performance
