Yamaha DVD-S557 review


At £120 this is far from a budget model

Good picture and sound

No serious issues

If this is your price point, the DVD-S557 needs to be taken for a test drive soon

Expert review by: David Smith (

Yamaha DVD-S557 DVD player review


Yamaha's range of DVD decks may not explore the depths of pricing like some (this is the lowest-specified model and it still costs £130), but it has an aura of quality that is confirmed when you take a careful look at the spec sheet. Topping the bill...

Excellent picture; excellent sound

Manual is sometimes difficult to understand

A very impressive DVD deck that is class above today's ultra-budget models
