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

Excellent high end DVD player


This thing does it all, with a huge amount of features, and quality construction. Great for those who are reluctant to go the Blu Ray route

Good So Far


Even though i have only used this item twice. It took me about 3 minutes to set-up, and is working great right out of the box. I'm not a very technologically informed person, i can tell this is a good product. Especially right now, considering it is...

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

Yamaha DVD-S1700


Fantastic picture quality, plays discs previously less playable; DVD-Audio sound is better than I have ever heard, brings a new life to my collection, enjoying them again as if they were new to me.

Almost everything has to accessed from remote, a hidden panel would be nice in order to do basic functions (menu etc.,) from the unit.

Yamaha DVD-S1700


Superb picture, well built, looks good, Prerecorded disks look good, 5.1, RCA sockets on the back, negate the need for a digital reciever. Just plug into a multi channel power amp. Apart from a few niggles, the main thing is the picture is excellent.

heres why it gets only 7 out of 10. with recorded dvd's it freezes. The search buttons dont seem to stop where you fast forwarded to, or rewinded. Regularly the DVD when i tried to playback a point, used what must be some sort of location point on the...
