Absolutly. It's pretty terrible too. I was at my local dealer watching Toy Story, I made sure it was on all the models... all the Nakamichi players rendered the movie unwatchable. I was watching it on a 64" Pioneer Elite HDTV.It's terrible to see it on a vaunted company such as Nakamichi. I told the employee about it, and he said that it was just the menu, and the DVD might be defective... Too scared to admit, I knew more than him.
