The trend that Sony is starting to set with stripping their players of LCDs is starting to really get to me. Just one more reason for me to never get another PCDP in my lifetime. If they can fit an LCD onto their MD recorders, the least they could do is fit one on their CD players main units which have more than enough room for one!
I think sony is consipiring to mess around with our minds with strange user interfaces (or lack of).
I have to agree, no LCD display is kinda annoying. Even if you put it on the remote, its still kinda lame. That's one of the reasons why I purchased the EJ725 because it has a LCD on it.
However, from a manufacturing point of view, it makes complete sense. Less parts, less things can go wrong. Placing the LCD on the remote means that its cheaper to discard the remote if it doesn't work instead of tossing the whole pcdp.
