Crutchfield provides good information and photographs of their merchandise on their website so you can find just about anything you want to know about a product. Plus they provide additional information and recommendations based on research and testing. Their purchase and checkout system are extremely easy to use. Plus no shipping for many items. They used priority shipping and my order arrived one day sooner than predicted. Highly recommend purchasing from Crutchfield. The Sony BDP-S6700 Blu-ray player was extremely fast and easy to setup and begin using. I'll delay commenting on the performance of the Sony BDP-S6700 Blu-ray player at this time because I don't feel I've had it for sufficient enough time to rate its performance. Sony recommends purchasing from Crutchfield as I discovered when I checked Sony's website for information on the player.
