Bottom Line:   
What a stellar mid-priced performer. This unit does a solid, somewhat laid-back job with SACD and DVD Audio, and redbook CD sound is very listenable and coherent - especially for a player in this price range. The video was just average until I switched the video flag for the "BNC" connector to the ON position. Even thought I'm not using an actual BNC component video connector, quality improved very noticeably on my Sony 50" SXRD screen. It took the graininess out and delivered a very solid image. If your looking for a decent reasonably priced universal player, be sure to audition this one!

Bottom Line:   
I am impressed with this mid-priced universal player. It does a good - though somewhat laidback - job on SACD and DVD-Audio, and its CD sound is credible and involving for a player at this price. Video performance was just average until I turned on the video flag for the BNC connection, which is odd since I'm not actually using a BNC component video connector. Just setting the flag to "On" really cleaned up DVDs on my Sony Hi-Def SXRD screen - really, really happy I discovered this little tweak. I'm thinking of investing in an actual BNC connector to see if it gets even better. A very nice picture for a non-upconverting player.

Bottom Line:   
Upgraded DVD player to end occasional lip sync problem and occasional progressive scan errors and the Integra DSP 6.5 was successful. Also wanted to explore SACD which is very nice although the digital coax play on the same SACD was awesome too-I was waiting for the 6 SACD cables. Very happy with the video picture using the component outputs to an older panasonic plasma edtv. I thought the old player had good video but the Integra video was a pleasant suprise and that is the reason for the max overall rating.
If someone has an older dvd player that could be improved and they could just add analog cables for the SACD then this is a great choice. Otherwise you could save money by ignoring the universal players and just going for a newer dvd player since both the video and audio chips spec out faster on the newer models.
