"Amazing Machine"4.5 starson by ACLeftGuard76
Pros: Superb Video Quality, Outstanding Audio Quality, Huge Power Supply, Easy Updates, Attractive Machine, Great Build
Cons: No CD Playback...As of yet, No ES Version
Summary: After owning this player for a couple of months now, Ive pretty much decided that I totally got my moneys worth for a spectacular BD player. $790 I paid for mine throught OneCall.com and compared to the others that are offered as of now (including the Phillips, the LG combo, Samsung, Pioneer Elite and the new Panasonic) it is by far the superior machine, though the Elite BD player isnt far behind. The Sony has the least amount of Digital noise that gets throught to the picture. It EASILY has the largest and best power supply. The Burr Brown 1791 LPCM audio boards inside of it make the sound EXTREMELY dynamic. Face it, this machine is built to reference standards...yeah, I said it...REFERENCE standards. In a couple of months Sony is to release their BDPS300 for about $600 and as you may see when you Google it...its significantly smaller. Sony says its no different, but I dont trust that. Get your mits on this Reference machine now before theyre gone.
