Despite wanting to upgrade to S7200, my S790 is still sailing along phenomenally as usual. Quite a reliable bit of kit unlike it's predecessor, the BDP-S770, which failed after less than 2 years of...

You shouldn't post disinformation such as this, as the concept of PAL/NTSC doesn't exist for BD. PAL/NTSC (576/50i and 480/60i) are DVD concepts. BD is generally 1080/24p.

Are you perhaps...

Actually, I do EQ my Rythmik F12SE sub-woofer via it's on-board parametric equaliser for < 110 Hz. PEQ3 functionality is quite effective.

Indeed.

That type of distortion is also known as intermodulation (IM) distortion. The main point of bass management is to eliminate or significantly reduce IM distortion.

Frankly, I believe this may be just your perception of Sony machines based solely on their pricing structure.

I've had both the Sony BDP-S770 and now the BDP-S790 since 2010. In 2012 I invested in...

FLAC v MP3

Which has the best quality, 320 Kbp/s mp3 or 44.1 kHz/16 bit FLAC? I've heard that they are identical in sound quality.

That's somewhat correct for 30 FPS video-based NTSC DVD, but what you're experiencing is the infamous NTSC 3:2 pulldown. Don't forget about 24 FPS film-based DVD in both PAL and NTSC formats.

I don't recommend LFE+mains, or "double bass" as some know it by, because it can become overly bass-heavy with some source material.

Indeed.

The main reason I purchased my first BDP (BDP-S770) in 2010 was SA-CD functionality that would decimate the SA-CD DSD bitstream to 24/176.4 kHz PCM sample rate, if required. Only Sony...
