It won't win any beauty contests either. Fortunately it's a lot cheaper.
Oh, it's made in China too. They call that flagship!?

I have. There a couple of other places but they only carry the lower-end products from Yamaha.

Well, doing a search on Froogle only turned up one place on the net and at full $750 price. At this early stage of the release the $699 price at Tweeters doesn't seem too bad, but that non-return policy is nasty.

Hi!

No, that's why I said "made in China too"

I have had issues with Denon QC, so I'm not touting them either.

Never a glitch with my Sony ES made in Japan that I've had for years. Although I'm considering "upgrading" it to the Marantz DV9500 to get the new features.

How odd.

I copied the text from the link and it's a valid link, but I get an empty web page. Then if you back up a level or two (deleting the directories after the slashes) you get to this:
http://www.yamaha-service.de/service-download/
whichi is a ftp-like directory of the contents, from there you can click on "owners_manual"... but! A page in Portuguese comes up (?)... now, Spanish is my native language I can figure out that it is some kind of a political essay. It's as if the DNS routing from my work connections is screwed up.

Incidentally, pretty good read. The political stuff, that is.
I pm'd you with my email address.

That is probably to be expected. After all it has not even been released yet, so how can anybody really even offer to sell it. Because about all they really can do right now, is just offer to order it.

My local dealer still has no concrete info as to the actual release date, so that he start to order them. And I guess two of the guys that work there got the hots pretty bad for one. So I would think if there was a way, he should have been able to find a release date for them, seeing as how they want a few for personal use also. They only thing I "heard", was it looked like it possibly might not be until somewhere around the end of Feb.

My local Tweeter said that my S2500 should be in their warehouse on 2/11 and in their store 2/14 or 2/15. Let us see.

Well, I emailed PDF manual to kramer who tells me, it was bigger than allocated attachment here!

If some one can host it! I can send via email to that person, so this way, evey one can get benifited.

and in return, if i can get a halluva deal on this player that will be awesome! and ofcourse some favourable feed backs!

I dunno, if it's that close to being released or not. But I kind of think that the "guess" of more toward the end of Feb, might be when it happens. But I also think that some vendors sometimes get "special" treatment, and sometimes get new things before some of the others do. Like Denon did with Crutchfield and the 5805. So I guess anything is possible, and maybe Tweeter is higher up on the list and could be getting some the first ones out.

The manual has a bass management information under the SACD section. Very nice but I see no bass management information at all for DVD-A. Actually, there isn't a DVD-Audio section in it.

I think the 1500 is the same way: Pretty extensive BM for SACD, but none for DVD-A. Which is actually the opposite of most other players.

If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.

I've been reading the manual (thanks zoro! ) to see if this player transcodes the Rec 601 YCbCr values to Rec 709 YCbCr values when upconverting to 720p/1080i and, of course, going HDMI to HDMI, but there is not a word about that.

I had emailed Yamaha about this, but the answer I finally received didn't really answer my question. I emailed them back on Jan. 26 clarifying what I wanted to know and 9 days later I'm still waiting for an answer.

Does anybody have any info on this matter?

Still no answer from Yamaha on my question regarding whether this player transcodes Rec 601 YCbCr values to Rec 709 YCbCr values when going HDMI to HDMI and upconverting to 720p/1080i.

This is the solution, on the players' end, to avoid color errors (the most noticeable being the "green depression") in upconverted HDMI connections. It is a known issue and I don't understand why manufacturers don't take advantage of it by addressing the problem and then advertising their upconverting HDMI players as "green depression free" to outsale the competition

I just hope Yamaha did a good design...

Well it seems the first known retailer in the US has two of the s2500 dvd players in stock for $625 each. They are on Ebay...
Maybe we shall see more stores get them in now and others begin to review them here on AVS.

Just do a google search, and it will pop up at least 6 of them. Some are authorized (with NO online sales). And some not, and those will sell to anyone.. And none of them have any real great prices yet....
