Any word on the Toshiba SD-9500? Is it going to be released?

    I am considering an upgrade for my Technics DVD-A10 DVD-Audio player. Any player I buy would be used primarily for DVD-Audio playback. The Denon DVD-3800 interests me, but the early reports of a chroma bug have me considering other options. A few months ago, I heard that Toshiba was going to replace the SD-9200 with the SD-9500 this year. Does anyone know if the '9500 is still going to be released and if so, when? Any information you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I heard Septemberish. BTW don't be surprised if the 9500 also has the Chroma Bug. All of their current players have it.

    Craig, thanks for the info. These days, I expect any progressive-scan player to have the chroma bug unless I hear otherwise. I guess Panasonic players are among the few exceptions these days. The problem is that the Panasonic players are not going to offer the audio quality I am looking for. I expect them to be like my 'A10 or worse. The 'A10 is a good player for what I paid, but I'm sure I can do better if I am willing around $1000.

    Keith,
    I hear ya. If the Panasonics had better DVD-Audio features, I'd choose them. Someday, I hope someone gets it right.
    I am beginning to think will never see a digital interface for DVD-A/SACD. [​IMG]
