Yamaha's new 1080p up-scaling lineup -- from receivers to DVD players

Matt Burns

Yamaha just released a slew of new high-def products on the A/V world: two new receivers and three new up-scaling DVD players. The receivers both have the HDMI 1080p inputs and output along with an new and improved video processor. The big brother of the two, the RX-V2700 up-scales analog and digital video to 720p or 1080i on all three of its HDMI ports while neither one of the V1700 does. They both are sporting XM and iPod interfaces plus, the V2700 has an Ethernet port for Yamaha's MusicCAST music service. The three DVD players start at $999 for the S2700, then $449 for the S1700 and then Yamaha dropped the price on their older DVD-S659 from $749 to $179. The two new ones are powered by Faroudja DCDi and can scale video sources up to 720p, 1080i, and all the way up to 1080p. The new DVD player's sound great but that DVD-S659 price drop sounds a little more tempting.
