I purchased the 626 about a month ago based upon very positive reviews in a couple of trusted independent mags, and I can't say I've been disappointed. As with most DVD's the picture quality surpasses that of video by lightyears, and the sound quality is truly, truly impressive. I've got mine hooked up to a 28" Sony TV (not widescreen unfortunately), with sounds via a NAD 314 out of Wharfdale Modus 3's, interconnects for audio are Cambridge Audio Pacifics and the visuals are provided through a Vivanco Scart on the RGB channel. Crank up the volume, dim the lights, and sit back for what's (almost) a cinematic experience. ... Read the complete review

The Pioneer DV-626D is a great DVD player – and it should be in the top 5 list at the top of the page. Unfortunately, it isn’t but that doesn’t stop it from being an excellent piece of hardware. I don’t personally own this player, but I have a friend who does and I’ve seen enough of it to be impressed. I own a Toshiba 2109B and can easily make comparisons between the two. Picture: -------- The picture quality is outstanding – this machine really does show how good DVD really is. I’ve seen pretty much everything on the 626 – from Toy Story to The Matrix to LA Confidential. Very sharp, very ... Read the complete review

This is a higly recommended player with an excellent feature set and given its quality the price isn't bad either. I bought this to replace my Samsung 807 when it proved to have problems with a number of discs. I'd already amassed a large number of DVDs so though it was worth investing in a decent player. All the reviews I read for this unit were positive so it seemed the ideal choice. So far I've not been disappointed. The picture quality is superb and I just wish I had a better TV to make the most of it. Sound matches picture and again I wish I had a Dolby Digital setup to get the best from the unit. The machine provides all the standard DVD ... Read the complete review

This DVD has a very cool(the gold one) look but of course what we want is a high performance DVD player and this DVD player from Pioneer didn't disappoint me. It comes with a built-in Dolby Digital Decoder and 5.1 Channel Analogue Audio Outpost. This model also features a newly developed Digital Video Noise ReductionIC that specifically separates disturbing noise from video signals. This gives users pleasing voice free clear pictures. Also available is its Virtual Dolby Digital feature for direct hookup with the TV set or conventional stereo system that has only two audio channels while simulating realistic 3D Dolby Digital, only with a set of two front speakers ...

I purchased the Pioneer 626 a few months ago and I have been very pleased. Before purchasing I read some reviews on other sites and compared it between other models of similar price and the Pioneer seemed to come out tops. First of all the picture quality of the Pioneer is superb. Clean, crisp and colourful, it's very impressive. Now the 626 comes with a variety of sound settings for users with standard TV speakers ranging up to pro-Logic and full 5.1 set-ups. The sound is excellent and the inbuilt decoders are comparable in quality to many medium range Dolby Digital decoders, with good levels of bass and treble. The only negative thing I would ...
