Yamaha BD-S2900 review


Yamaha is the first AV specialist to go BD

Yamaha BD S2900


This is a great piece of work. Looks great with my Onkyo TX SR706 and it has outstanding picture quality.......The only thing that disapoints me is the fact that it does not have a open close button on the remote.
