have you taken a look at this beauty? it is simply impressive, the sheer bulk, the laid back aristocratic mein and the arrogant champaign gold color all set this unit apart. the sound and picture are well above average. overall performance is, while not excellent, will give many more expensive players a run for their money. i was especially thrilled when i hooked up the Monster power centre mains conditioner, i experienced pure cinema ambience. i have always wondered wether i could trade the...
