I'm about to buy one (stock). So this is a serious question. Plus, I might be going for a tour soon.
John - the focus of the upgrade is 2-channel audio. For me, it will serve as the DAC for my modified SB Touch, as well as a universal disc player for BD, SACD, DVD-A, and CD.

Tell me more about the tour you might be going on...

And to answer Hedwig's first question, you do need two power cords - one for the player and one for the separate external power supply.
