I just added a Yamaha DVD-S1800 to my system for SACD capabilities. Thinking about dropping the S97 from the stack.
Anyone have thoughts on how the Yamaha and Panasonic compare strictly with respect to DVD playback?
BTW - I bought this player back in May of 2005 and it's still going strong. I never upgraded the firmware (if it ain't broke...) but I'm tempted to. Any reason not to upgrade firmware? I know sometimes firmware updates can make matters worse which is why I'm reluctant.
