This is our first Blue Ray player, replacing an old DVD player that seemed to cause objectionable noise through our sound system. This player doesn't cause the nasty noise, so that's great. It doesn't seem to respond well to the remote, especially trying to open or close the unit. I usually end up pushing the button on the unit. Only 1 HDMI output on the back. No other options, so not real flexible. Our amplifier is a few years old, and doesn't have HDMI inputs or outputs, so I'm not real sure if I can run it through the amplifier. As is, we run it directly to the LED TV, then take an RCA type analog signal from the TV to the amplifier. Good enough for me, though others might not be satisfied. We're mainly satisfied, since we got a cheap 47" LED TV, and needed something that would play 1080 HD content, and we didn't want to spend much, so it's been good enough for our needs.
