I just bought this today for cheap. Here are my observations/experiences so far: 0. Came with a remote (RMT-D100U) with a flip cover that exposes even more awesome controls. 1. The tray opens slower that usual for disc players. 3" disc compatible. 2. I had to cover the optical output with electrical tape because the laser was distracting. 3. Unit takes up a ridiculous amount of space and weighs more than expected. 4. Certification sticker is circa 1997. Made in Japan. 5. Promo text on unit includes "DUAL DISCRETE OPTICAL PICK-UP", "10bit VIDEO D/A CONVERTER", ADVANCED PULSE D/A CONVERTER". 6. The display has an INDEX field which I hope to use with my old Rush 2112 CD. 7. There are two audio outputs, 1/L and 2/R. I'm still researching this one. I bought it for the lulz but it seems to have potential.
