Yamaha DVD-S2300

Universal DVD-Audio/SACD player; superb sound; extensive bass-management facilities; excellent Genesis/Faroudja DCDi video processing with 3:2 pull-down.

Expensive; doesn't automatically play SACDs with best sound; lackluster remote; convoluted setup.

Yamaha's soundly built player delivers great sonics, and its video quality is a step above the competition's.

Yamaha DVD-S2300 MK2 Universal DVD/SACD Player Review


We are at a bit of a crossroads in technology right now as some of the digital rights management rules change and digital transmission of DVD-Audio and SACD finally become a reality. As of right now

Superlative playback performance of CD, SACD, DVD-A and DVD-Video with DCDi 480p output ; Bass management & digital delay compensation for DVD-A ; Separate bass management for SACD ; Excellent build quality

Doesn't retain last played DVD/CD track when unit is powered down ; Limited bass management crossover options ; No digital video output options ; No digital audio output options for ; DVD-A or SACD (Standards not available at time of manufacture) ; No...

Players/Recorders: SACD & DVD-A Players: Yamaha DVD-S2300


So-called ''universal'' players that will play anything on a 5'' disc have so far been a better idea than a reality as far as quality playback is concerned. Ironically, as simple as SACD's DSD stream is reputed to be on the decoding side (Sony makes...

In our video-quality tests, we enjoyed similarly good results. We looked at the gamut of test patterns on a 155cm Samsung DLP rear projection TV, and the S2300 equaled that TV's excellent processing. That's not a surprise since both devices have...

Yamaha DVD-S2300


From the outside the Yamaha looks like any other DVD player, finished in black with all the basic controls out front, compete with a display featuring garish DVD and SACD indicators that light up like the neon under a boyracer's car. There's a full set...

As a replacement disk player for our two channel music system the Yamaha does a competent job with good CD performance, better performance with DVD-Audio, but only okay with SACD and has a few ergonomic glitches. This player would make a good...

Nice, heavy equipment, well laid out front panel, comprehensive outputs, fabulous image and sound quality.

Remote window quite narrow - only about 30 degrees either side of horizontal or vertical.

Yamaha DVD-S2300 DVD Player


While the war between DVD-A and SACD rages on and on and on, the electronics manufacturers have taken a new approach to dealing with this issue and instead of limiting themselves or aligning themselves to just one or the other, many manufacturers are...

Superb video quality, excellent audio, comparatively great price, bass management

Hybrids are still expensive, not quite audiophile quality (but very close)

"at $900, a phenomenal value!!!"


The previous reviewer paid a high price, perhaps as soon as it was released. Today the DVD-S2300 Mk2, an updated version of this player w/ several upgrades, is ~$900US. This is amazing because this universal player, with usual high Yamaha design and...

"Great sound, price to high."


The real down side for me is lack of power standby and no progresive scan on Australian models. The 2300 Mk2 has a standby facility but this model was not released in Australia.
