After doing all my research over the last 2 weeks on which best player to buy for my sub-£400 I decided to get the 545 only now to discover it's sold out everywhere and a wait of 2 weeks +. At about £250 for a multi-region 545 model , spending more does not look like I will get a better picture !!! Sound and other gadgets like DVD-A and SACD maybe, BUT I DONT WANT IT !!! I remain to be convinced about these, in the same way I was about LaserDiscs, Beetamax and VHS, CD music and DVD films. I never owned a Beetamax or Laserdisc player.
