Yamaha BD-S2900 review

 

Yamaha is the first AV specialist to go BD

Excellent Blu-ray picture ; Build quality ; CD performance ; Fast loading times ; Profile 1.1

DVD playback only average ; Operationally noisy ; Not Profile 2.0

A fantastic Blu-ray player all round, it's just a shame that it's not future-proof

Yamaha BD-S2900 review

 

Yamaha is gunning for Pioneer with this Blu-ray spinner – let's see who comes out on top

An extremely solid player from Yamaha, but stronger rivals and a big price tag stop it getting five stars

Yamaha BD-S2900 review

 

Good picture quality ; capable sonic delivery

Only Profile 1.1 ; can’t decode HD audio formats ; price can’t match performance

A solid player from Yamaha but cheaper, more accomplished rivals have the performance edge
