VERSATILE DVD-AUDIO AND SACD DISCS
Yamaha expands its line of high performance DVD player with a new model that offers SACD playback as well. The DVD-S2300 is capable of playing both DVDs and CDs, including DVD-Audio and Video discs, SACDs (Super Audio CDs), VCDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and CDs recorded with MP3 files. Outstanding features include Progressive Scanning with DCDi Processing, independent DVD-Audio and SACD circuits, DTS and Dolby Digital decoders, Bass Management processing and Video Off mode. The DVD-S2300 is an ideal companion for mid and high price range home theater amplifiers and receivers.
HIGH QUALITY REPRODUCTION
The DVD-S2300 delivers sound quality that is superior to other players in its class and even to some more expensive players for a number of reasons. It uses high performance SACD DACs for all channels and a 192kHz/24-bit DVD-Audio DAC. The SCD and DVD-Audio circuits are completely independent and optimized for each format (the SACD circuit is extremely simple and straight). This guarantees highest quality with both types of disc. A Video Off mode can be selected to ensure that no interference from the video circuitry can affect the sound. Other features that contribute to high sound quality are independent digital and analog power circuits and transformers, a large disc stabilizer and anti-resonance double top and bottom covers.
DVD-Audio and SCD (Super Audio CD) are new audio formats that offer stereo and multichannel (surround) sound with higher quality and greater sonic realism than ordinary CDs. They can also provide extra content like artist information and lyrics. Availability of these types of discs in increasing, although titles are not always released in both. But with the DVD-S2300, you do not have to choose between them-this player will play both.
PROGRESSIVE SCANNING WITH DVDi* PROCESSING
Video displays use two type of scanning systems: interlaced and progressive. In brief, progressive scans twice as fast as interlaced, providing a superior picture with less flicker and other distortion. The DVD-S2300 has a progressive scan processor built in, so progressive video images can be viewed on a digital TV or monitor. It also offers DCDi, a processing technique that eliminates the jagged edges that generally appear in moving images when interlaced video is converted to progressive. DCDi makes a clearly visible difference and is a very desirable feature. * "DCDi" is a trademark of Faroudja, a division of Sage, Inc. * DCDi is not applicable to image from fillm sources
The DVD-S2300 provides Bass Management processing and a subwoofer/bass management output terminal. Bass management is important for DVD-Audio and SACD multichannel playback, as it properly routes the bass frequencies for best performance from a multi-speaker home theater system. With normal 2-channel (stereo) CDs, the bass frequencies are routed to the subwoofer, so listeners can enjoy 2.1 channel sound with more powerful bass.
MULTI-BIT DELTA SIGMA DAC
The DVD-S2300 uses a new multi-bit delta sigma DAC that features performance superior to that of the previous types, as well as a dynamic range of over 120dB. The DVD-S2300 maximizes the potential of DVD audio by using this high performance DAC for all channels.
PLAYS BACK CD-R, CD-RW AND MP3 FILES
Recording songs onto CD-R/RW/VCD disc using computer and digital recorders is becoming more popular. The DVD-S2300 will play these discs, so you have an additional source of new music. It will also play discs recorded with MP3 files, which because they are compressed, can provide about 12 hours of music per disc.
The DVD-S2300 has 5.1 Channel Audio Output Terminals, a Bass Management Terminal, Mixed 2-Channel Audio Output Terminals, Optical and Coaxial Digital Audio Output Terminals, Progressive Component Video Output Terminals and a Remote Control In/Out and an RS-232 port for Extended IR Code for Custom installation.
INLET-TYPE POWER CABLE
The Inlet-Type Power Cable is separate, rather than attached to the unit. It is a thicker type than usual, for higher power handling capacity.
Allows you to interrupt a movie to go to a feature and then pick up the movie where you left off with 5-Disc Memory.
PROGRAM AND RANDOM PLAY
Provides non-linear play options.
