As far as I know, these new players won't do SACD. I have enough SACD discs that I'd want to be able to play them and have a backup in case my stand-alone unit fails.

Also, I don't stream so...

I don't, but there's no room for one. They're supposed to be good sound diffusers, though I'd like one for decorative purposes. But $29.99 sounds cheap. I thought they'd be more by now.

I don't...

I use only ISF Night and at 30–32ft/L (I forget which). This isn't a bright room, and I'm a bit light-sensitive, so it's perfect. Plus, I don't think it puts as much of a strain on the power supply....
