Yamaha describes the DVD-S1700 as a high performance DVD player. With a number of strong features, most attention is directed toward the 1080p video output through the HDMI connection. Image quality is enhanced by Faroudja’s patented Directional Correlational De Interlacing (DCDi), described to remove jagged oblique lines that appear on standard interlaced video viewed through progressive scan. The DVD-S1700 displays images at high resolutions made possible by multi-bit sigma-delta processing and bitshuffling from NSV Precision Video technology. Yamaha also gave the S1700 an advance audio characteristic supported by Super Audio CD.
