    They are both about equal for MP3, which is to say, limited in features and picky about sampling rates.

    But the 5700 is subject to the same freezing problem I experienced when trialing the 4700. By that I don't mean the occasional lock-up when utilizing lots of menu options and special effects. I mean the freeze in the middle of the movie kind.

    My 70BK has gone cold freeze on me a couple of times when viewing the AVIA test disc for calibration but I am always putting it through its' paces at the time with a lot of remote input. It has never given so much as a hiccup during normal play.

    All the Tosh fans out there, please don't misunderstand. I like the 4700/5700 a lot. I thought the picture quality was outstanding right out of the box. In fact, I used it to set the User 1 setting on the JVC I ordered to replace it.
