I have one. I am impressed. In a direct comparison with a high end player, the high end player will have a little more "Heft" in the lower frequencies and slightly better focus. But without the two players sitting together, it is hard to find fault with the focus of the Stan/Pioneer. The Stan/Pioneer has excellent tonal balance, lots of detail from top to bottem while remaining musical. Very open and very good 3D. The Pioneer is a very light and cheap player build wise. Stan will also Mod the next Pioneer up the line with "progressive scan" video and the Pioneer 5 disk DVD changer. He can also do the same Mod to the Onkyo DVD Players that have the same Burr Brown 24/96 chip. The Onkyo's are more solid (and more $$$).
