Thanks for the review. I am also considering this unit.
I have a Sony SCD 333ES changer that I bought new for $399 back in 2001 that is still going strong, and sounds very good for 2 ch SACD. I also have an Oppo 980H with HDMI that I use for multi-channel SACD.
So I am still on the fence on whether the 5400 makes sense for me. I still buy SACD's, and probably have at least 100 at this point. The format has proven surprisingly resilient, IMO.
For me, the question comes down to - how much better on 2 ch SACD is the 5400ES over the 333ES? I'm using a tubed 2 channel analog pre-amp, and wondering if I will I hear a big difference on 2 ch SACD between these units.
