–DVD-S2500–Offers DVD-AUDIO, SA-CD,
DCDi Progressive Scan, i.Link and HDMI Capability
INDIANAPOLIS–Yamaha Electronics Corporation, the leader in digital audio and video reproduction, previews its next generation high-quality flagship universal DVD player with Faroudja DCDi progressive scan at CEDIA 2004. The DVD-S2500 will be replacing the award-winning DVD-S2300MKII, which has set the industry standard in audio and video quality, compatibility and excellence for universal DVD players.
The DVD-S2500 has all the same high-quality features that put the DVD-S2300MKII at the top of its class with some significant upgrades. The DVD-S2500 includes an i.Link digital connection for DVD-Audio, Linear PCM, SA-CD and other high-quality digital audio transfer capabilities for premium audio performances. Another vital feature is Video Off Mode, which allows the user to turn off video circuitry that may interfere with these enhanced audio formats. Other new video enhancements include a new high-performance video DAC (216MHz/12-bit) and HDMI, which is capable of 480p, 576p, 720p, and 1080i digital video up-conversion.
Another feature of the DVD-S2500 is NTSC/PAL progressive scan with DCDi processing by Faroudja, which delivers a superior picture with fewer artifacts while eliminating the jagged edges that generally appear in moving images. The unit incorporates 3:2 Pull-Down technology, which seamlessly converts film-based DVDs to video frame rate, for a cinema-quality performance.
The DVD-S2500 single-disc DVD player has been designed to offer the greatest level of performance and versatility, capably handling all popular audio/video formats, including SA-CD, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, CD, CD-R/RW, picture CDs, MP3 files and JPEG files.
The DVD-S2500 takes full advantage of effects channels on DVD-Audio discs, and offers high-quality, SA-CD-capable DACs for all channels. Its SA-CD and DVD-Audio circuits are completely independent and optimized for each format, which guarantees extremely high-quality audio playback. In addition, the DVD-S2500 has independent digital and analog power circuits and transformers. Like the DVD-S2300MKII, the DVD-S2500 comes with an RS-232C port for advanced custom installation capability.
The DVD-S2500’s MSRP and release date have not yet been announced.
The DVD-S2500 can be seen during the CEDIA 2004 show at Yamaha’s booth (#424), Indianapolis Convention Center, beginning September 10.
