Yamaha BD-A1010 Aventage review


Yamaha's new Aventage series is a crop of top-flight AV components that the blurb says is a dramatic and inspired leap forward. They are clearly not talking cosmetically, because the flagship BD-A1010 networked Blu-ray player is a chunky and...

Universal disc playback; networked; film-like picture; twin HDMI outs

Noticeable panning judder on a projector screen; bugs need fixing

Yamaha BD-A1010 Aventage Universal 3D Blu-ray Player


Last year, Yamaha released the Aventage product line, which included first several A/V receivers, then also a Blu-ray player. The Aventage product line is Yamaha's new premiere brand, similar to Sony's "ES", and Pioneer's "Elite." Last year I reviewed...

The Yamaha BD-A1010 is a fine, full-featured Blu-ray player, with most of the options one would want. Picture quality is good to excellent, especially for HD material, and navigation speed and design was quite good. However, for the same suggested...

Yamaha Aventage BD-A1010 3D Blu-ray Player Reviewed


Yamaha offers competition in the universal player market by adding the BD-A1010 3D Blu-ray player to the company's offerings. But how does the Yamaha BD-A1010 stack up against its competition? Adrienne Maxwell investigates.

This model does not include dual HDMI outputs to send separate signals to your 3DTV and A/V receiver ; The player doesn't come with integrated WiFi or a USB WiFi adapter ; The Web platform isn't as robust or customizable as you'll find elsewhere ; The...

Given the BD-A1010's MSRP of $499.95, it's impossible not to compare it with OPPO Digital's BDP-93. The two players are similar in disc/format compatibility and Web offerings, and both have multichannel analog audio outputs and RS-232 control. This...

Test Blu-ray-Player - Yamaha BD-A1010 - sehr gut


Der Yamaha BD-A1010 baut auf den S1067 auf, wurde allerdings für die Aventage-Reihe modifiziert. Wie alle Aventage-Geräte ist auch der Blu-ray-Player auf optimale Audiowiedergabe getrimmt. Modifikationen hat es sowohl im Schaltungslayout als auch im...

Mit dem BD-A1010 haben die Yamaha-Leute die Aventage-Reihe mit einem passenden Blu-ray-Player ergänzt. Das gilt für die Optik und erst recht für die Ton- und Bildqualität.

Yamaha BD-A1010


Als zeer goed! De Yamaha BD-A1010 wordt door testredacteuren gezien als één van de betere Blu-ray en HD DVD-spelers. Door de wijze waarop de expertscore berekent, haalt maar een beperkt deel van de producten een score van 7,5 of hoger....
