Bought mine at Interstate Electronics, Hazlet NJ ask for Bob L 732-264-3900 cannot say what I paid but it was a very good deal. Have been using unit for the last two days, comming from JVC, Marantz, Panasonic this is by far the best money that I have spent on DVD/CD equipment. Using with Marantz AV-9000/MM-9000, M&K S90 speakers 125 SUB and JVC 36 new model TV-not HD. Had to reprogram Marantz 5000i remote-that took two days but it sure beats replacing/using other remotes. Back to the S2300, test sound does not play through sub channel according to manual. Setup for DVD/DVDA was easy but did notice that depending on the disk (see manual page 30 see NOTES) speaker settings might not work due to programing lock on disk, SACD was a tad bit more confusing (new to SACD)have to select MULTI/2CH mode before you start to play disk. BM is done by reducing the output to the front channels, not increasing output to sub ( see page 32 NOTES). Best sound is to setup for (MLTCH DIRECT page 31 #3) output, no speaker management sub will still work by combining all channels. Over all unit has great picture, great sound-dead quiet and you get rid of some cables.
