Yamaha DVD-S1700

 

Yamaha's DVD-S1700 is virtually identical to Marantz's DV1600 with a similar design, specification and price - but does it offer the same outstanding picture and sound quality?

Universal compatibility; build quality; excellent performance with movies and music

Less natural pictures and sound than main rival

Nice looking, easy to use and set-up. Doesn't make much noise. Relatively light. Remote works great. Upconverts to 1080P, although anyone that's going to purchase this item would most likely purchase it for that reason. Great picture
