    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.

    How do you like its performance regarding sound quality?

    I had one of these briefly in the early days of DVD. It was a solid performer and if I remember correctly only a slight step down from the Sony 7000. Cosmetics are definitely different with no drop down front panel door.

    I did some A/B on headphones playing Led Zeppelin II. Compared to the Nakamichi MB-4S, the only difference I hear is that it has a lower output volume.

    I'm not sure mine can play DVDs. I tried playing a dvd-r and a silver dvd, but the unit seemed to get lost and had no audio output, but we don't have a TV here so I'll investigate this possible issue later.
