Product description

Product Description

The Yamada DVD-5520 is a top-quality DVD player without a large price tag. Offering outstanding value for money, the slimline Yamada DVD-5520 DVD player features multi-region playback straight out of the box and a host of features, including 5.1 channel-surround output, Dolby Digital decoding and multi-language support.

The Yamada DVD-5520 is more than just a DVD player, as it will also play MP3 CDs, Kodak Picture CDs and JPEG picture CDs. When viewing JPEGs you can set the player to run them continuously with different transition fades between images. The player is also compatible with the following forms of CD media: CD+G, DVD, VCD, SVCD, CVD, MP3, CD Audio, CD-R, DVD-R and DVD-RW readable.

At the back of the player you will find an array of connections including optical and coaxial outputs, SCART, S-video, RCA analogue audio and video connectors and Dolby Digital 5.1 audio outputs. When played through a suitable amplifier, Dolby Digital 5.1 delivers truly awesome audio that puts you in the middle of the movie action. The Yamada DVD-5520 will also play back NTSC DVDs on a PAL only television.

The user manual, although quite short, is very easy to understand and gives you clear guidance on which audio/video setup gives the best results. The full-function remote control allows you to access all of the player's options/features including zoom, multi-angle, volume up/down as well as all the standard DVD playback controls.

I have bought 3 of these machines, two for the kiddies bedrooms
and one for the living room. They are excellent and will play
just about anything you can throw at it. OK they are'nt the
prettiest DVD players on the market, but they dont look awful either.Playback quality appears to be excellent, although I can only compare this to my only previous DVD player which was by 'Cyberhome' - it is also much quieter in operation.
Playing an MP3 disk is simplicity itself, with an easy to navigate on screen menu.It gives you control over a lot of audio/video settings, and the audio sounds great thru my hifi (dolby digital). At £40 this is an absolute bargain and an ideal
Xmas prezzie. One gripe - it comes with 2 lots of RCA phono leads
but no scart lead !! - but it is £40...

I have recently purchased three of the Yamada DVD 5520 players and friends have purchased a further two. I see from the customer feedback that a lot of players are being returned to you when a little note would solve most of the problems.
Power light not working - thurns out this is a standby light and not a power light so it will be off in normal operation.
Sound but no picture - setting needs to be changed on the dvd player. This is difficult as you can not see the picture but just turn the dvd player on and wait for the no disc indicator on screen. Then press the following on the remote.
Setup,right,right,down,play,up,up,up,down,play,setup. Then picture will appear immediately.

If you want a good DVD player that is inexpensive, then you can't beat this. I previously had a Yelo DVD player that cost just short of £200 and it lasted less than 18 months and no longer works at all, and did not play all my DVD's that I have bought during holidays abroad. This one however, plays the lot with no fuss, very easy to use and the picture quality perfectly fine for the average tele. The way I see it, for 40 quid, if it lasts a year and I have to buy a new one, then it's still a lot better value than spending a lot more for one that lasts 18 months for 5 time the price!
I say, buy this player!

We ordered this DVD to replace our multi-region SONY DVP NS300. The Sony has been nothing but trouble but this Yamada DVD is excellent. Multi-region straight from the box we have now watched region 1, region 2, PAL and even NTSC onto an old PAL TV, including DVD-R copies, plus it even plays badly scratched DVDs which the SONY does not even recognise! Picture quality is excellent and there are plenty of toys, angles, zoom 2x-32x speed etc.
No scart lead provided but you probably have several already and if not you can buy one. The box contains an AV lead (3 phono to 3 phono) plus two, yes two double phono leads for connecting to your stereo.. A reasonable grey remote and even two AAA batteries. There are digital co-ax and optical outputs plus Component Video (3 leads), a scart socket, S-video and Digital Audio 5.1 Channels for connection to surround sound or conventional stereo outputs all via phono plugs.
This is an excellent slimline player at an incredible price. I would highly recommend it. I hope it will last forever but at this price who cares. We ordered online on Friday evening and received the box via Parcelforce at 08.45 Monday. Well done Amazon.

I recently purchased one of these players and what an excellent piece of equipment it is. Very simple to set up and use, giving superb playback through all outputs (scart, video-s and even through the co-ax). The machine handled all disc formats I tried, DVD, SVCD, VCD without any problem and the MP3 player gives a fine sound too, with clear onscreen menus to select folders etc. This has to my best purchase of the year.

Bought it after a friend recommended it, and haven't been disappointed.
Does all the things it's supposed to very well, excellent picture quality, pretty straightforward to use, although I did have to fiddle with the display a bit to get the colour right, and my photo CD's are a hit with the kids!
And with a variety of connection options including SCART, digital RCA and optical, as well as other speakers, it should please anyone.
NB: Doesn't include a SCART cable, but does come with a triple RCA cable and 2 more sets of audio RCA cables for extra speakers.

This DVD player might appear basic, but has many of the advanced features you'll find on machines costing 4 times the price. The picture quality is good, and a nice onscreen menu system keeps you informed of what is going on. The fact that it plays back a multitude of formats, including MP3 CDs and Kodak Picture CDs makes it ideal for people who don't have a computer but want to see their digitised photos or listen to their son's band etc.
The remote control is nice and tactile, with responsive rubber buttons, and the instructions I haven't even opened! Batteries come with the remote control, as do composite cables - although life is easier if you buy a scart cable at the same time.
The actual machine itself is very slimline and doesn't look "cheap" at all, the fact that the product branding suggests "Yamaha" seemed a little bit of a cheap shot initially, but don't let it put you off - the DVD player looks and works nicely.
I wouldn't necessarily have this as my primary player, but as a present for aging technophobes it's ideal and a nice way to dvd-enable your family!
