I've had my BDP-2500 from CC for 2 weeks now, and I am enjoying it very much. Initially, I thought I would test this one out, and the return it for the panny 35k or 55k, but after a couple of weeks with no issues - why ruin a good thing right?
The positives: Quick load times, no lip sync, audio drop outs, or any other oddities experienced so far. And I especially like the aesthetics as it matches my 52a860 quite well.
The only negative is that the sammy doesn't internally decode DTS-MA, it was a big deal to me at first, but now I'll probably just let it go. My receiver decodes DTS-MA, and how often am really going to need to listen to a dts-ma soundtrack with the commentary mixed in? I think that it will still play play both tracks mixed, it just downgrades the dts-ma track to dts.
