it's fantastic, and would recommend it as an alternative to those looking at universal players such as the Denon 2900 (which was too chunky for my cabinet) and the Pioneer 868 (not a fan of the styling) into their system, although it's a bit pricer than both. SACD and DVD-Audio both fantastic. SACD sounds as good if not better than my stereo only Sony 555ES. DVD Audio significantly better than my Toshiba SD900E. Picture quality on a par via RGB Scart with the Toshiba SD900E, which is saying something. Unfortunately I don't have a plasma or projector so I can't comment on component/DVI performance. Just thought I'd post my comments for those interested in getting a universal player.
