The price of this machine is excellent with great features. It will play anything. Easy to set-up and hack. Better looking that the 852.
CDs start playing at 38 secs for some reason. Terrible manual.
This Dansai 952 is my first DVD player so to be fair, I have nothing to compare it against. I went into Tescos to buy an 852 but came out with the 952 due to its better looks and spec. One gripe is that it starts playing CDs from 38 secs. Not too bad as you can easily rewind to get to the beginning of the first track.
I was initially disappointed with the sound and picture when watching my first DVD (Depeche Mode - One Night in Paris) but talking to a few friends, I think it may be the DVD that's naff and not the player. Harry Potter, my second DVD was perfect.
All in all, a great player for a first timer like me.
