Designed and Constructed for Superior Quality

The DVD-S2700 is not just another "high quality" DVD player. Every aspect of the circuit design, parts and even chassis were planned extensively with a view to achieving truly superior sound quality in the finest Yamaha tradition, based on analog two-channel sound. It was developed not only as a player for DVD movies, but as a component that delivers superb music performance.
The interior has independent chambers for the power supply, operational and video circuits, as well as separate covers, preventing any chance of interference between sections. The chassis is a highly rigid, reinforced frame that prevents any vibrations from affecting the sound. A large transformer exclusively for the audio section eliminates any possibility of sound degradation at the power supply level.
Four top class 192kHz/24-bit 2-channel audio DACs are used, while the audio circuitry is designed for highest sound quality, using high performance capacitors and other parts and painstakingly tuned by technicians who are obsessed with achieving the most "natural sound."
The result is a DVD player capable of bringing out the full potential of multi-channel audio sources such as DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD.
Audio Direct Mode
Selecting the Audio Direct mode cuts the video circuitry out of the signal path, so there is no chance of it affecting the sound quality. The front panel illumination is also turned off to prevent noise interference from the LCD.
Noise shaped Video™ and DCDi Progressive Scanning
This technology, from Analog Devices, uses oversampling and advanced techniques such as multi-bit sigma-delta processing and bit-shuffling to improve converter performance by moving converter noise to an area of the spectrum where it can be removed by an analog filter. This improves the accuracy of signal representation, allowing images to be displayed at much higher resolutions. Other advanced technologies used to maximize image quality are Faroudja DCDi Processing, Motion Adaptive Noise Reduction, Cross Color Supression, Aspect Ratio Conversion and TrueLife Enhancer.
216 MHz/12-Bit Video DAC
This new high performance video DAC ensures superior image quality with all video sources.
The design of the front panel conveys the distinct feeling that this is a luxury component. Not only the overall elegant look, but the fact that it has aluminum panels and cleanly finished aluminum caps on the operating buttons.
An RS-232C interface is provided so this player can be controlled via computer in a custom installation.
Wide Screen Mode Selection
Two modes can be selected for optimum viewing on widescreen monitors via HDMI and component video outputs: Non-Linear Stretch and Pillar Box. Non-Linear Stretch helps minimize distortion of a 4:3 picture by trimming the top and bottom to make it closer to a 16:9 picture.
HDMI® (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industry supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio / video interface. Providing an interface between any source (such as a set-top box or AV receiver) and an audio / video monitor (such as a digital television), HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high-definition video as well as multichannel digital audio using a single cable. HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements. When used in combination with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), HDMI provides a secure audio / video interface that meets the security requirements of content providers and system operators.

DVD-Audio is an extension of the highly popular DVD format, distinguished by its capability to deliver high quality multi-channel audio capability previously unavailable in traditional packaged audio media.
Super Audio CD
DVD players that support Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. With a frequency response of over 100 kHz and a dynamic range over 120 dB across the audible frequency range – some 64 times higher resolution than CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just can’t hear on a normal CD.
CD Digital Video
DVD Players equipped with CD Digital Video capabilities will be able to play video and sound media that has been compressed together and recorded onto a CD disc.
DCDi TM (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing)
Invented and patented by Faroudja, Directional Correlational De interlacing (DCDi), virtually alleviates jagged oblique lines that appear when standard interlaced video is viewed on progressive scan displays, enabling the reproduction of beautiful, natural-looking moving images.
This technology, from Analog Devices, uses oversampling and advanced techniques such as multi-bit sigma-delta processing and bitshuffling to improve converter performance by moving converter noise to an area of the spectrum where it can be removed by an analog filter. This improves the accuracy of signal representation, allowing images to be displayed at much higher resolutions.
The most popular 5.1-channel home theater sound system. An improvement over Dolby® Pro Logic® offering: 1) Full frequency response in all channels (3 Hz — 20 kHz), 2) discrete surround channels, and 3) a separate track for bass, only, called the Low-Frequency Effects channel.
DTS Digital Surround™
DTS Digital Surround™ was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a multichannel digital sound track. This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel sound (front left and right, center, surround left and right and subwoofer low frequency effect channels for a total of 5.1-channels).
DivX is the video compression codec developed by DivX Networks and based on the MPEG-4 compression format. Its balance of high video quality and low bit rate has made it very popular and quickly established it as the best home video format thus far. The ability to play it on newer DVD models continues to add to its popularity as DivX Networks advances its support to many new household products. This compression technology has the potential for expanding the ways we view video media in much the way MP3 has given us many new ways to listen to music.
DVD Players equipped with Video CD capabilities will be able to play video and sound media that has been compressed together using the MPEG 1 standard, and recorded onto a CD disc.
