"HD never "sounded" better!"5.0 starson by dwberryman
Pros: superb audio sound
Cons: for some it may be the cost.
Summary: HD output was my reason to buy but I was pleasantly surprised by how it dramatically changed the sound quality of my large MP3 files. For years I played my MP3 files (I-tunes and misc. MP3) through my computer and I was pleased. I didn't know what I was missing till I converted all of my MP3 files to a DVD data disc (BDP-s1 won't play CDs). The sound especially the bass response "punches" and I hear fine/detailed sounds I never heard before. In summation, the BDP-s1 is a excellent/superb HD player but, in my opinon, it shines better as player for MP3 files on a DVD data file---my home theater/audio system never sounded better!
