I had the S570 before Joe and I never should have got rid of it. I like the feel of the 570's build quality over the 6200 and honestly I dont like the 6200's design all that much. Dont get me wrong the 6200 is a damn good player but in the end I preferred the 570 so that is why I might go back to it this Friday. I have a decision to make. I dont need 2 Blu ray players, one is sufficient enough! 6200 or S570.....its going to be tough.

Huh? It doesn't even decode TrueHD to multi-channel PCM output.

I started to get all nostalgic about my old 570 too, then I remembered the Netflix and Amazon apps on it SUUUUCK. So I'll take a newer, faster, cheaper unit any day with decent streaming apps. And like most modern AVR's, mine decodes all HD audio just fine, so I'm happy not to have to pay those license costs twice to get PCM I'll never use. Smart move by Sony, IMO.

BTW, you may want to give the 2015 models a look since they went back to the flat top design. Not bad looking little units this year, plus they have PlayStation integration of some sort. I'm not a gamer, so I didn't pay much attention to that part.

That's funny. I dont remember having any issues with Netflix or Amazon streaming when I owned the 570, in fact I thought streaming from those 2 sites were very good. Second I have no interest in Sony's 2015 Blu ray players because they look small and cheaply built plus Playstation integration does nothing for me at all.

Blind, barely controllable ffwd/rewind, tiny unreadable thumbnails, no Super HD, no profiles, no 1080 at all for Amazon, I could go on and on. I don't miss those apps at all. The x90 series was a huge improvement in that department, and the x100 and x200 are better still.

I agree about the cheap build, but at the end of the day you don't need a box built like a tank to spin a disc and stream from the internet. It just looks better.
