Introduction

The BD-S1065 is one of Yamaha’s most recent Blu-ray models (the other being the BD-S1900), and is also the least expensive model in their lineup. Despite being the “cheapest” player in Yamaha’s arsenal, the BD-S1065 is well equipped to meet its competition with full Blu-ray profile 2.0 (BD-Live) compliance, built-in audio decoding of all the latest high-resolution audio codecs, and even AVCHD playback capability.

It is not a universal player, instead focusing simply on Blu-ray. Let's see how it performed.
