    Does anyone have this player? I'm curious about audio and video quality, layer changes, bass management, and general disc handling. Seems to be a competitively priced universal. Thanks.

    Is it out yet?

    Its based on Onkyo's entry level players, so the word "on the street" is that its using a BB DAC (vice Onkyo's typical - and better - Wolfson DAC).

    On the video side, Onkyo's have never performed better than "average".

    So all in all, and without seeing any reviews on it yet, I would say that it is nothing more than an entry-level universal, none of which are anything to get excited about.

    I would like to be proven otherwise however.

    It's listed at Crutchfield and the like. Can't find the make of the DAC, just 24-bit/192 kHz which could be anything. Can't seem to find a user review anywhere so far. Trying to find out if it's closer to the SP1000 that seems well liked, or the earlier entries you mentioned.
