Ok, I have a Sony DAV-S300 and I'm looking to upgrade. I'm not into all the seperates and all that (I live in one room ***, anything more is overkill). Anyway, the speaker wires for the S300 are all under the carpet so it would be a pain to rewire everything. Plus I want to be able to keep the wires for the S300 (Sony proprietory connects). So, what's the opinion on the S888? If I get this I can use the current speaker cable that's installed (and use the cable from the new player with the S300). Does it still use the same composite/SVHS video out as the S300? Or have Sony fitted it with component video out? (It is supposed to be their top end machine after all). What's sound quality like? Main question is, will it play DVD-R's okay as I've just bought a Pioneer 105 and the last thing I want is anything I burn to be incompatible. I know my S300 is (although I've only tried Datasafe Ritek discs) but incidently it refused to play the Honda promo DVd as well. Thanks for any help.
