Pretty sure the Marantz had was solid aluminium tray about 1.5cm thick.

|He did say that once fully modded the standard and SE versions display slightly different characters. The Standard based unit has a warmer lusher character and the SE based unit is faster and more transparent with better soundstage and imaging. Both units once they are modded are truly world class players, just slightly different in character.|
|My SE arrives this Wednesday. Like an idiot I wasn't thinking when I placed the order and I purchased the $69 3 year warrany, which will be voided if I have anyone other than Nuforce mod the player. There's no way I'll be able to resist having this player modded for three years.|
Lots of imaginary friends in there, eh Yikes ?
fwiw, I also believe in burn-in, but the thousand hours requirement has always annoyed me. That has to be a serious chunk out of the working life of a lot of kit, surely ?
Brand spanking new, cold with zero hours, I'm decidedly unimpressed with the sound quality. Hopefully the BDP-83SE is one of those products that shows dramatic improvement with break-in. Tonight once it gets dark I'll dial in it's video to suit my projector.
It's also going to be a few days before the cables that I'm going to use to hook it up 7.1 analog to my HT get here.
So at least out of the box it's no giant killer, but the jury will remain out for at least a month.
I am looking forward to much improved video performance (I'm sure that it will spank my Samsung Blu-Ray player), and improved Multi-Channel HT 7.1 Surround performance.
