However I have to guess that is the photo that looks horrible and the image is much nicer in person.
What I am glad to see is the return of the wolfson dac's.
I do plan on using those anolog outs and I love the sound from the wolfies.
My understanding is that some of the DTS HD audio will only work after the firmware upgrade??? Do you know what this firmware upgrade will actually give to this player and when will it be avalible?
You mention how some of these players have more more control of the video.
Is it good enough on this player that one could bypass some of the cheaper VP's that are in the market?
Thanks again joerod for the info, this player is at the top of my hit list for the dreaded "UPGRADE" word.
Is the bland right?
Is the player to beat arrived!!!
I know from personal experience it is very hard to take screen shots that do justice. so much is down to technique, lighting and the camera. in the end the camera does lie
and not blaming joe rod here or calling to question his camera skills
but I wouldnt be too judgemental looking at the screen shots.
need to keep in mind what you see is also down to your PC and display yoru viewing from as well. quite unlikely thats calibrated in any regard
"is the bland right" ? bloody hell no one please tell him that
we'll never here the end of it hehe
ps joe one thing agree on I really miss with the sony 5000 is the display output button my pio had. which on the fly could switch video output format to see with my own eyes. with the sony have to go into the menu to do that. so jsut leave the sony to its own devices on "auto" setting and have to trust its doing the best by you

bloody hell Chris talk about rutheless competitive spirit ! hehe
ps you'll find a nice analog stage and dac board in the sony as well, plus its quality power stage using as R-core power power supply that it has used previously in high end ES players. quite a few pics in the 5000es owners thread and with link to dtvpolska where the guys took it to bits. but know what you mean, I opened mine up to have a look, nothing beats havign a peak with yoru own eyes to see the level of design and engineering things have on board
