It is outstanding to say the least but I am experiencing an issue with it. I am hearing a single irritating pop between tracks with the following firmwares.
It looks to be a Pio problem as it plays without the pops on Onkyo DV-SP506.
My Sony BDP-S580 also has the "pops" with this DSD disc.
But the Onkyo and the Sony both pump 176.4 multichannel PCM to my Denon AVR-3312CI, so I really can't complain too much. The Onkyo has turned out to be quite a stellar performer for audio.
It's been a long time since I've been here! Anyway, I believe that your Sony aso uses the MediaTek CPU. So this leads me to believe it to be an issue with the MediaTek CPU. While it makes sense to stick with a single-player solution for Blu-ray, there are times I miss my DV-58AV because of its speed and response. The Pioneer BDP-53FD didn't work out because it had a weak IR sensor. If you don't need multi-region compatibility, the Denon, Marantz, Oppo, Sony and Yamaha Blu-ray/SACD players are fantastic! If you know how to use IFOEdit, you can change Pal references to NTSC and click the Region Free button, burn the new DVDs to disc, and they will play fine. If you need Blu-ray, multi-region and SACD, I'd see if you can still grab a Pioneer Elite BDP-62FD. While I knew Blu-ray would make this thread inactive, I still can't believe that any of the Pioneer SD DVD threads have become inactive, considering how great these players are!
