(This was covered in January, but since this player is now in more homes and because the thread title was rather generic I've started this thread). So ok, that pretty much says it all. It takes only about 10 minutes to heat up a disc. I don't know if that makes it sound any better (you know, the whole idea that amps sound better when they're warm...maybe the same applies to CDs/DVDs?) but I wasn't expecting my DVD player to be adding heat to the rack. It's a stellar player for $500CND all in and a toaster to boot. Universal +1! Anyone else experiencing the same? I had heard that the same happened with someone's 2900. If you do experience it, does it bother you? (The edit was just finishing a thought I didn't finish in the opening parenthesized statement. The contents are otherwise as originally posted.
