Summary: I am only going to comment on the sound quality of the unit because I am using it as a cd/sacd player only. For the discounted price that these things are currently selling for, especially thru the Harman outlet on ebay, this is an outstanding bargain. The sound is lush and warm, unusual for a cheap digital player. Resolution and clarity are first rate, especially resolution of fine details. Soundstaging is excellent.
Summary: Since everyone else has reviewed the video capabilities, I thought I would comment on the audio. I bought this from Harman Audio direct off of E bay. I paid less than $100 for a refurbished unit. I bought this primarily because I wanted an affordable unit to place in my bedroom and allow me to play SACDs. This also plays DVD-Audio in addition to the regular play of CDs and DVDs. I hooked this up to the 6 channel input of my small home theater receiver.
Summary: It is probably the finest up converting DVD player there is. This was a replacement for an H/K DVD 47 that just wasn't living up to my (admittedly) high standards, and bricked when I tried to update the firmware (see my review of the DVD 47 to see how well H/K handled the exchange. A+). The difference between this and the DVD 47 was night and day.
Summary: Product is excellent, Highly recommend this DVD player. When using the upconvert option to HD quality the picture is incredible. Easy to setup, remote control is clear and easy to use. It has been setup and working for over a month, and not one complaint or negative.
Summary: We bought this for our home theater, where we're using it with a ViewSonic projector and a basic surround sound system. It's excellent - great picture, easy to use, attractive styling that goes well with our other components. We've been using this for a few weeks now, and have nothing bad to say about it!
Pros: Consistent Performance, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, High Quality Picture
