ScottChez, the sound quality was very good, CD Playback was so so. But too me the Video quality was horrible after extensively reviewing it further. At first I thought it was fantastic, but on close up shots peoples faces where getting blurry, so I thought I got a lemmon so I exchanged it for another and it did the samething..
On my set (Tosh 50HX81) this player has a very good picture - as I mentioned in another thread, Lawrence of Arabia Superbit looks amazing, as did Monsters, Inc. etc. As mentioned in other threads, sound on SACD and DVD-A is very solid.
I would suggest trying it out, making sure you purchase the unit from a dealer that can do a return. For me at least, this unit was the answer. It's also inexpensive enough that in a year or so if another model tops it in any area, it will be relatively painless to upgrade.
IMHO this is a much less stressful way to always have a particular component with the newer specs and / or features. Yes, you can spend a $1000 or more on a top of the line universal player but it will be just as outmoded in a year or two as the $200 one.
