Yamahas Next Generation Universal DVD Player is a Triple Threat

–DVD-S1500 Offers DVD-AUDIO, SA-CD, DCDi Progressive Scan–

INDIANAPOLIS–Yamaha Electronics Corporation, the leader in digital audio and video reproduction, unveils its next generation high-quality universal DVD player with Faroudja DCDi progressive scan.
The DVD-S1500 is designed for the home theater enthusiast who wants everything in a single player. This truly universal player will play back both popular multi-channel formats, DVD-Audio and Super Audio Compact Disc (SA-CD)—-both of which have music selections that have grown tremendously in the past few years. The DVD-S1500 also has high-quality (24-bit, 192kHz) audio DACs for all channels and high-end (12-bit, 108MHz) video DACs, which maximize video quality and provide the best resolution for a smoother, film-like image when viewed on a high-definition TV or large screen.
Another feature of the DVD-S1500 is NTSC/PAL progressive scan with DCDi processing by Faroudja, which delivers a superior picture with less flicker and distortion while eliminating the jagged edges that generally appear in moving images. The unit incorporates 3:2 Pull-Down technology, improving cross flicker for projection of cinema-quality images with a realistic, film-like appearance.
The DVD-S1500 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.
DVD-Audio and SA-CD are still gaining in popularity as they provide users with a higher-resolution audio experience that rivals live performances. The DVD-S1500 takes full advantage of effects channels on DVD-Audio discs, and offers high-quality, SA-CD-capable DACs for all channels.
The DVD-S1500 delivers superior sound quality that rivals more expensive universal DVD players. Its SA-CD and DVD-Audio circuits are completely independent and optimized for each format, which guarantees extremely high-quality audio playback. Audio Direct is a feature that allows the user to turn off video circuitry that may interfere with these enhanced audio formats to ensure premium audio performance. In addition, the DVD-S1500 has independent digital and analog power circuits and transformers.
For highest quality with CDs, the player uses CD up-sampling to raise the CD sampling rate to 176.4 kHz for a smoother sound to rival the quality of DVD-Audio.
The MP3 phenomenon that took the world by storm is here to stay. More and more consumers are demanding products that are compatible with this format. The DVD-S1500 supports full MP3 compatibility, including fast-forward, rewind, special playback functions and MP3 navigation display. It will also play discs with JPEG files and display thumbnail images in sets of four.
Other features include 4-Step Multiple Zoom (1x, 2x, 4x, 8x), Resume (5-disc memory) Play, Multiple Repeat, Disc Lock (Child Lock), On-Screen Menus, and Multi-Angle (9), Multi-Aspect, Multi-Language (8) and Multi-Subtitle (32) capabilities.
The DVD-S1500 carries a suggested MSRP of $399 and is available.
The DVD-S1500 can be seen during the CEDIA 2004 show at Yamaha’s booth (#424), Indianapolis Convention Center, beginning September 10.
