Got it finally. Under $250 shipped and it plays cd's, dvd's, and mp3 encoded cd's and dvd's. Three dvd's and I've got all 13gb of my music in my car. I definately recommend getting an lcd screen if you pick up this unit, if not just for the file browser. Overall, easy install and a great sounding receiver. Even better than the Sony I had, although lacking some of the features like Dynamic Sound Output and 3 preamp outputs.
