Too many features in too small a package?


Yamaha has attempted to offer an all-in-one, affordable, slim-line player that is almost "too good to be true." Initially difficult to get, the product should become more available as production ramps up. It plays most discs imaginable and future...

Plays most disc formats.Direct-audio feature bypasses video processing circuits ; potentially less interference

Drive is too noisy. A little slow to read some discs

Pleasantly surprised! Fisher DVD S1500


Well needless to say I am a Bargin shopper, and picked mine up for about 100$. And a very good deal if I say so myself. This is a full feature DVD player, SVideo, Composite Video, NTSC Video, Coax Digital Audio, and the list goes on. But where it...

Plays everything!! CD/R , CD/RW, DVD, VCD. Most discs will get played.

No MP3 support.

Product Specifications

The DVD-S1500 is compatible with both DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD. These multi-channel music formats provide a surround sound music experience that is much more natural and lifelike than normal stereo. It delivers sound quality that is superior even to some more expensive players for a number of reasons. It uses high performance 192kHz/24-bit audio DACs for all channels. The Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio circuits are completely independent and optimized for each format (the Super Audio CD circuit is extremely simple and straight). This guarantees highest quality with both types of disc (format selection is provided). An Audio Direct can be selected to ensure that no interference from the video circuitry can affect the sound. With versatile format and disc compatibility, the DVD-S1500 will play almost any type of disc you are likely to have: Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio/Video, DVD+R/+RW, DVD+R/RW, Audio CD, CD-R/RW, SVCD and VCD discs, as well as disc with MP3 (multisession) and JPEG (multisession) files. The DVD-S1500 provides an on-screen display with clearly understandable On-Screen Menu Icons. It's easy to select and adjust and desired function with the remote control. The DVD-S1500 gives you numerous ways to enjoy your discs. You can program tracks in the order you want, use Shuffle Play to play them randomly, repeat them in a variety of ways, freeze any frame, and zoom the images to three different sizes. There's also a Resume Play mode with a 5-disc memory.
