    I was waiting for someone to bring that

    The issue with the Yamaha isn't the sound quality, it's the reliability.

    Absolutely. And while the sound quality is excellent, the reliability issues I’ve had are surely worth mentioning. Conversely, the Marantz unit F1 mentions doesn’t have balanced XLR outputs, which can be a real stumbling block for some enthusiasts.

    Within the past 24 hours, Pioneer has unveiled the UDP-LX500. Very few details are known about the UDP-LX500, but many expected it to be a successor to the US market Pioneer Elite BDP-LX55 (if I remember correctly, MSRP $1,000) and BDP-LX88 (I think this model's MSRP was $2,000). Not sure if this new Pioneer will be offered in the US. Stay tuned.
