I know this is the DVD Hardware side of the tracks, but I wonder if you might be willing to give us an idea about the SACD/CD playback capabilities? I'd love to hear your impressions regarding the sound quality on both SACDs and upsampled CDs (this sweet little puppy also does upsampling, right?).
Also, the only specs I've seen are those listed at J&R, which state in part "Advanced Bass Management sets each speaker's low-pass crossover point separately". Does this mean that one can select from a variety of crossover frequencies (60hz, 80, 100, etc.) for each speaker, or rather does this mean the same limited "large/small" selection of most/all other players at this price-point, where "small" is set at the less-than-optimal 120hz crossover frequency? If the former, then this is a rather big step-up in terms of bass management capabilities.
