I would take the Sony X700 out of contention, as it shares the same lock-up issues as the older (first gen) X800 model (not to be confused with the newer X800M2).

The X800M2 is a solid machine, and supports both SACD and DVD-Audio playback. Not bad for a player in that price range.
I bought the X700 in 2021 due to price and SACD playback. It has tiny feet and people have complained about it overheating, thus lock-up. I got some taller self-adhesive feet and now there's about 3/8" air space under the unit. That appears to have overcome the overheating issue.

Dennis, hope that you & your furry friend, the sweet looking little videophile Maggie, will enjoy some fine movie entertainment this evening in Idaho!
