I just purchased this player over 3 weeks ago and all I could say is I'm amazed. I have had previous players in the past Panasonic and LG hooked up to my oled and within 3 movies 1 of the disks would always freeze for unknown reasons and the disks were usually brand new out of the boxes sealed, And I would have to take the disk out unplug the player put the disk back in and skip over the part it froze to watch the rest of the movie. But that's a whole other story which I don't know if there's a problem with the TV or HDMI cable but this player does not freeze but it still does show some artifacts but at least I don't have to go through the lengthy process of taking the disk out on plugin a player and skipping over that part of the movie. One thing I don't get about this players why all the hate it's receiving on the balanced outputs in terms of sound quality. People say it's Tinny sounding but if you actually go into the settings and find the audio filter and set it to slow the sound does have a more natural sound than the stock setting. And just the build quality and the finish and the way the player actually looks more professional just adds to the value of this player yeah I guess people are saying it's no oppo Which I will never get the experience of owning because I don't feel like paying over 2 grand for a used player, But then again I don't own any SACDS or DVD audios any ways to justify it. I'm just wondering why gnome people are really talking about this player on forms just that it was probly not gonna get released in the US but now that is released don't see any forms, So I figured maybe I'll start one.
