I have a lower end sony player 560 I think and I don't really like it that much. The layer changes are very noticable, sometimes more than 1 or 2 seconds, Other than that I guess it has served me well except for several lip sync problems with several discs. and the 13:00 non playable code several times. What player will handle layer changes the best and still give great quality picture and sound via s-video, and coax digital audio cable. Any other players out there with a horrable layer change that I should avoid?
