Summary: Marantz manufacturing made a mistake on this one, it played but wasn't as advertised. One phone call to Marantz and it was replaced asap. In fact I was having a hard time keeping up with their requests to get it mailed in. Their commitment to correcting the situation was greater than my complaint. Some times you get the odd lemon and you just hope you get some one like Marantz to fix it with our drama.
Summary: For $650 I would expect a longer warranty period. I am very unhappy with Amazon and Marantz. I have now read up on the subject and this appears to happen often. Won't eject Blu-ray discs, then won't turn on.
Summary: I purchased this Marantz DVD player to go with my Marantz Stereo and CD player. Let me tell you that I love all 3 pieces and I highly recommend each component. I have been a huge Marantz fan since the 70's. I only use my DVD player for DVD discs and it plays flawlessly. The picture and sound quality are phenomenal. I can't believe how this machine has even enhanced my movies that are not Blu-Ray.
