E1 / XE1 - startup times for CD playback

I've read lots on here about the startup times of these units when playing DVDs. Do the same delays apply to CD playback? How long could I expect to wait between powering the unit on and geting a tune out of it?

Also, is there any significant difference in the startup times between the E1 and XE1?

Thanks.

Yes, there's the same boot-up time though it doesn't take long to load the CD once it's in. I'd say around 30-40 seconds from pressing the power button to playback on the E1, not sure about the XE1.

Ive got the E1 and just timed it :boring:

37 seconds from when i hit the power button to when the "HD DVD" splash screen appears.

Then however long it takes to load in a cd.

My XE1 takes the same time. I timed it the other day at around 40 seconds. And this is after the 1.3 firmware upgrade.
