    Hello,

    Anyone out there got a Yahama S550 DVD player...?

    I'm seriously thinking of getting one but can find no reviews anywhere :confused: .

    The rest of my kit consists of Sony STR-V 555ES amp and Jamo 305PDD (5.1) speakers and a Panasonic 28" WS TV.

    I'd love to hear any reviews or comments on the player before I buy.

    Thanks in advance,

    Matt

    Anybody... ?

    I'm particularly interested in the 'musicality'...

    I understand it was reviewed in What Hi-Fi in November - I didn't see it and they don't publish their reviews on the web :mad: If anyones got a copy maybe they could e-mail it... :lease:

    Any comments appreciated.

    Matt

    I just think in general Yamaha don't lead the way in DVD technology and so aren't that popular. That's not to say they are bad players though, just that you could probably get better spec/performance from a similarly priced denon, pioneer or sony.
