I've owned a 525 for just over 2 years now.

I find its audio and video performance acceptable.

My machine is 'chipped' to play all zones and therefore was
the primary reason for the purchase.

If I had the funds, I would have opted for the 717/727/737 instead.

However, since its only ever used as a DVD player, I have no complaints, except for the awful remote !!!

If you find a DVD player which plays everything you want you are very lucky.
This is one of the most versatile player on the market ...and when I discovered
that it reads also SVCD I bought it immediately !!!!

Excellent Video no obvious flaws in the picture quality. Excellent as a CD player with one exception: at the start of some tracks with loud musical entrances, there is a very slight delay and you miss the very start of the track . Great value with one small flaw. An audiphiles delight as a CD player.

well, the picture quality and the audio quality are great.
However, it seems that this unit has problem with reading some dvds. i don't know if it's because lip-sync or any other laser problems.
For example, in the " thin red line" you have the menu option to listen to few melanysean songs. the player was not able to read it in the first place.
or, yesterday it stopped displaying the english subtitles in the middle of "south park- bigger, longer and uncut". also, it stopped playing the audio at the end credits. when i checked it this morning it played the whole movie with no problems.
it could be that my unit is defect, although it's only 2 weeks old.

The quality of the pciture is very, very good (I use the RGB-output on a Panasonic TX-W32D3). No problems playing 'difficult' discs like Matrix. Absolutely best value for money. The mechanism of player is a littlebit noisy though, you can hear the player in quit scenes, and the remote is an absolute horror.

This is a great player that has superb picture and sound quality. You can buy this unit for about $299 plus a $50 rebate. No problem with lip sync or any other abnormalities. I would recommend this player to anyone.
