Pros: Picture Quality, well priced progressive scan, plays music well
Cons: cheezy remote that isn't backlit, only comes in wega silver.
The 715 replaces our old S360 which died on us...and I'm glad it did! I am a wannabee audiophile so my player needed to play music as well as it did movies.
Even the most refined "audiophile" ear will be pleased with what they hear from Sony's 715. IceAge, Toy Story2, and various other animated movies and I have to say wow!! I've heard things that the S360 just didn't reveal. As for music, everything from Miles Davis to Bruce Springsteen was clean and open sounding.
I have the player hooked up to a Marantz 6200 receiver and Totem Dreamcatcher speakers. This system is fairly revealing and would let you know you had a poor player hooked up to it.
