I was pretty much decided to get one of these, though Ron P's shootout has shaken that some. Since I do reviews, it's essential that the player have certain displays. Thus far, I've used Sonys and they've all had these, but I don't think all players do. Does the RP-56 have 1. A layer indicator display? 2. Audio and video bit rate displays? If it doesn't have either on of those, then I can scratch it off my list with a clear conscience and no further waste of time.
