Exactly. While numbers may give a theoretical idea of what a piece of equipment is supposed to do, the reality may be something else, or so subtle that only a true videophile (which I don't claim to be) might see it. The 09 is, by all accounts thus far, an excellent player, if a bit steeply priced. I'd hope for some hands-on with it before I plunk down my AX card. Or any other player I'm considering, for that matter.
