Summary: I am pleasantly shocked. I bought this primarily for a second sound room (aka man-cave) that I'm building. I needed a good CD player primarily and thought decent video would be nice too. 99% of the plan was for audio, 1% for movie or concert DVD. Searching audio only CD performance led me to this unit. It's audio specs passed the quality threshold I had with the benefit of one box for CD audio with both HD-upconvert and Blu-Ray video.
