Great DVD..... till it broke


Yamaha DVD S795 Just quick note about the DVD if you are thinking of buying it second hand as it was made in 1999. I think it may have cost over $1500 when released. I bought it second hand on EBAY for $140 two years ago because it aesthetically ...

Product Specifications

Yamaha's DVD-S795 third generation DVD player incorporates a high-quality Dolby Digital decoder and passes a 5.1-channel DTS signal. The DVD-S795 plays the recently introduced DVD-Video format, Video CDs, and conventional Compact Discs. For the first time movies can be seen at home with digital picture as well as sound. This second generation player has a built-in Dolby Digital decoder and is compatible with the new DTS 5.1 channel audio format. The high performance laser pick-up focuses independently to provide top-quality Video CD, Audio CD, and DVD performance. When the director has provided multiple angles or shots of a particular scene, the DVD-S795 allows the viewer to select which angle is actually screened. Up to 9 different angles can be accommodated. The DVD-S795 can handle soundtracks in up to 8 languages and provide subtitles for 32 languages. Cinema Loudness feature enhances the center channel in the frequency range of the human voice to improve the intelligibility of dialog. Cinema Image recognizes a movie and softens the brightness for better viewing on conventional direct view TVs. It also improves the visibility of dark scenes and reduces picture noise. Video specifications include MPEG-2 video with greater than 500 lines of horizontal resolution and luminance and signal-to-noise ratio of 65 dB. The DVD-S795's built-in Dolby Digital decoder means that you don't need a Dolby Digital amp, receiver or separate decoder. Used with a Yamaha Dolby Digital ready receiver, or one from another manufacturer, or Yamaha's DSP-E492, this DVD player will provide the most dramatic surround sound available today. The new DVD-S795 is a second generation player which is capable of passing the 5.1 channel DTS signal from CD or DVD. A DTS decoder, either outboard or in the receiver or amplifier is required to realize the DTS signal. 96 kHz/24-bit compatible audio digital-to-analog conversion and 10-bit video D/A conversion assure that the DVD-S795 delivers superior performance. The DVD-S795 can be used in the most sophisticated home theater or A/V systems. It features two composite video outputs, an S-Video output, and a Component Video output. In addition to the coaxial and optical digital outputs, the DVD-S795 provides both 6-channel and stereo analog audio outputs. Control and operation is easy with the DVD-S795's well designed remote control keypad.
