build, attention to detail and robust peformance.
inability to play a host of other fomarts. lack of RGB/ component video outputs.
have you taken a look at this beauty? it is simply impressive, the sheer bulk, the laid back aristocratic mein and the arrogant champaign gold color all set this unit apart. the sound and picture are well above average. overall performance is, while not excellent, will give many more expensive players a run for their money. i was especially thrilled when i hooked up the Monster power centre mains conditioner, i experienced pure cinema ambience. i have always wondered wether i could trade the pioneer dv-717 for anything else. i use the Yamaha DSP AX 1 in the same champaign gold color. this machine is a mature and experienced piece of art...for the pure in heart.
