Ok, found out they dropped the price on the 555ES at Oade from $800 to less than $600 recently...that kind of annoyed me seeing I got mine in December for the higher price but.... This is really annoying. Playing my unit today for about 2 hours. I have never had a single issue with this player for more than 4 months now. Was playing Dada's "Puzzle". Went from track 4 directly to track 11 on the remote. Player started freaking out, trying to track song 11 and having no success. Tried to return to song 4 with no luck...still tracking. Pressed stop and then play again. Starting from track 1, it played fine. Now, using the tracking control on the front of the unit, I slowly advanced tracks. No problem from tracks 1-7, but when I get to track 8 or anything higher...it just tracks and tracks and tracks forever. Thought this must be an issue with the Dada disk but got the same results using Bonnie Raitt's "Nick of Time". Can you say frustrating? I'm keeping the unit off for the time being hoping tomorrow the laser will miraculously find a way to restore itself to the previous tracking setting, but has anyone else had this problem? I'm using the 555ES as a transport right now, so I can play CD's from my DVD player, but I no longer have SACD capability. Thank god for the 5 year warranty (sounds like I might be using that warranty far more times than I originally bargained for). Thanks for any help guys.
