And for $100 more the OPPO is a great deal: Even if you don't have HDCDs you get 2 HDMI outputs with the OPPO. Important if your AVR doesn't support 3D.


Again: It depends.

I have a receiver with built-in DSD decoder, so no need for in player converting to PCM.


I have for many years now no need for mc analog outputs.


Again: It depends.

If the HDCDs use Peak extent and/or gain, it is worth the extra $100.

For someone like myself who doesn't do 3d, has a reciever that doesn't decode DSD or HDCD, and needs the two channel analog outs for a dedicated headphone rig, it may be a good thing. I have to step up to the bdp-95 at 999 for having an dedicated two channel output.

... needs a player which decodes DSD and HDCD to PCM.

Why do you need in these days, where everything is connected by HDMI, a dedicated two channel output? Aren't the FL and FR analog outputs from the mc outputs of the bdp-93 enough? I try to understand you.

I can now confirm that multi channel DSD to PCM 176.4kHz works on A1010, I just got the unit earlier today.

"Universal player"....DON'T exist.


To be a "true" universal player, the player must play both blu-ray & HD dvds. Also the player must play VCD, SVCD & DVD-RAM; none of the players do so.


Also the player must play all audio available formats from all sources without any sampling khz limitations; of course the player must also play stuff on SD cards.


So, please no more crap regarding "universal" player arguements/"specifications".

How about LPs?

And LDs? LOL! I think it's a waste/waist* of time defining a universal player. You need to ask yourself what media, formats, and methods of playing them you think you'll be using at one point or another. If you're not into SACDs, but into HDCDs, then get the Oppo. If you're not into DVD-A, then get the Sony. If you're into BD, DVD-A, and SACD, then get this Yamaha. Btw, I've been loving my new 1010 for the past few days. I hope it holds up for a while and that there are no inherent defects with the mechanism, or crap like that.


*Due to my visual impairment and not reading as much since I graduated high school, and relying on verbal output, my spelling is suffering a little bit. I understand that it leaves an impression and I will try my best to do what I can do to get it straightened out.

The Lip Sync (audio delay) only works over HDMI, not the 7.1 analog outputs. I talked with Yamaha support and had them confirm this.

Speaker settings:

Size: Large or Small

Trim: dB 0 to -12

Delay: .5 to 10 meters

Why not Pioneer, Denon, Marantz, OPPO?

I have been debating between this Yamaha and the Oppo.


I feel like Pioneer has lost their edge with the Sharp merger. I had a bad experience with a Marantz product so I am developing a bias.

Does anyone know of a way to make this player multi-region for DVD, Blu-ray, or both? Procedures that have worked for the BD-S667, BD-S671, and BD-A1000 would probibly work on this model as well.

I would love to know the code. I have more than a few region 2 DVDs from Japan, currently I can only watch those DVDs on my back-up JVC XV-BP1 and the Japanese XBox 360.

Good evening,


Do you mind sharing an opinion on your new Yamaha or you still need more time?


Your input would be appreciated!


Thx

I have yet to try a DVD on my 1010 so I can't comment on that yet, but the BDs look great. Load time is above average(on par with my XV-BD1). The sound is very good with Pure Direct on for both BD and multi-channel SACD.(I have a CD-S1000 to handle 2-channel SACDs) Nice build quality considering the price tag, but the remote is rather crappy, the play/stop buttons, or I should say most of the buttons are way too tiny.


I don't plan to connect it with internet so I will let other owners to comment on the netflix/youtube functions.


Last but not least, a pic of my A1010:

Hi.


What was the procedure for the BD-S667? The MENU, 8520 then select doesn't work on mine.

I ment if anyone found a successful procedure for the other three models, because of their similar user interface, it would probibly work on this one.

I just got the A1010 today.

Tried it quickly, and none of my AVCHD folder worked, while they're ok on the pioneer LX55.


Also, when there is a disc in the drive, there is a shrill noise very audible.

Quite annoying.

So far, the only little bug I've experienced with the 1010 is that when you have the network access enabled, you have to wait between thirty and sixty seconds at power-up before the player becomes responsive to remote or front panel commands. No biggie.

So you didn't meet any of the issue I mentionned ?

I only use store-bought discs and plan on netflix streaming. I rarely rip and reencode because I don't have the time, although when I do, I love the fact that I figured out how to name the files so things play in the order I want them played in. I am glad that the 1010 can play WAVs because I'd be able to have hours of uncompressed CD quality music when I have time to burn certain compilations onto a DVD+RDL.
