Just want to know what general opinions of the unit are? How is video playback, scanning in forward and reverse and layer switching? How is redbook playback if used as a transport? How is the SACD playback? I am asking on behalf of a friend. He is using the Marantz SR-7000 as a receiver and a 43" Toshiba RPTV (forget the model, but it is not HD-ready). Thanks.
