With more time spent with this unit, I like it all the more. Definitely best video performance i have had yet. I have encountered one glitch, though. For some reason the unit no longer will " HAND SHAKE" at 720 p, or 1080i, (DVI out, from the INTEGRA) to my SIM 500HT LINK (3 chip) dlp projector . Still pass;s a picture at 480 p, just not scaled higher. I realize there is a macro protection devise that i believe could have some how gone out of spec, but other than that, have no clue why there is no picture any more (worked for first few days) at the higher up scaled RES;S. I also have to add, that this poses no problem for me, as I have not been a big proponent of DVI up scaled images, anyway. Everyone speaks of this feature as the " HOLY GRAIL" of DVD performance. I beg to differ. With good scaling and deinterlacing on the analogue side, (weather from the projector or the actual DVD player being used) you still can get very high quality pictures. In my set up, 480 I out to my projector just rocks. I prefer it to 480 p, at the moment. MY brief exposure to up scaled 720 p images from the 10.5 INTEGRA, ( while it was working) didn't look all that good do me. There was a definate green push to the picture ( as i under stand this, some dvi outs are set for pc color, and some are not, and this can lead to a green push). Don't get me wrong, while i was able to go in and adjust for this green push, (at the projector, not the DVD player), the over all picture looked very nice,up scaled , DVI OUT, however the 480 I out still looks nicer (more natural color saturation, and due to some processing capabilities of the SIM projector, when it "sees" a 480 I signal, it also looked smoother, and more artifact free, than DVI.
Still have not had a chance to listen to SACD or DVDA, yet. Will do so this weekend.
