This DVD player has been old faithful for me for several years. I have had so much enjoyment from this unit I hate to part with it. I just am running out of room and need to sell it. The player has some scratches on top of it from component stacking, but has no effect what so ever on the performance.
I have been told that a lot of people like to use these units as an audiophile grade cd player. I have never considered myself an "audiophile" but I do appreciate the quality and attention to detail that Sony put into this unit. I was their Flagship unit and it is very obvious. It is your turn to own one of the best DVD players ever built.
