Yes, tried Netflix. But it's only content available for our region.
You need vpn to access to usa content.
Have not setup my vpn yet, waiting for my whizcom installation only on 1st Dec.

Heavy, well made piece of gear..
Very fast, it will ask you for an update once you start up..
I wonder if it will allow you to access Netflix USA, has anyone tried?


If you are buying from Amazon, please help me by clicking from the link    AMAZON USA  |  AMAZON UK

Bro, Netflix will not work on VPN. They have a way to detect and block it.

One last question on Netflix, how do I know if I'm on usa content or localized content?
Any example of series that is not accessible locally?

Went to SLT this afternoon and bought the super star 120 watt voltage transformer for $28.

Played movies for 3 hrs, everything looks fine.  One thing i notice that it can played those mp4 files that my baru player is unable to play  :D

by the way, using coaxial out for audio is better or just use the hdmi will do?

120 w is a bit overkill...
coaxial will not give you lossless audio... or pass DSD.

Why not just write to Sony?
