    Maybe they can pressure Sony into releasing a replacement for the CE775 CD/SACD changer. I still can't believe that Sony does not offer a non-ES SACD-only player.

    Mark,

    I'm not sure why it is important to have sub-$400 SACD only players. That market is looking for video capability as well. You can shield the video portion well enough it has a marginal effect on the audio performance for that price level.

    Sony does offer a $400 Super Audio carousel player and a $200 SACD/DVD player. Below that price point of $400, you almost have to add DVD capability to be successful.

    Would you question Panasonic not offering a sub-$400 DVDA only player?

    There are now several SACD players and SACD capable DVD players at various price points from Sony's new line which is filtering into stores now and in the Fall.

    Yeah, when Best Buy starts stocking Classic Records 200-gram LPs, I'll be really impressed. [​IMG]

    My local hi-end store now has a twenty foot long dvd-audio shelf w/listening stations & the sales guy says they stock over two hundred titles now. And in the back they just opened the Dvd-Audio Listening Room. It's about 20ft X 30ft, acoustically correct, and uses an all-McIntosh system with Dynaudio Confidence loudspeakers. Most of the time it's filled to capacity with listeners so it is best to get there in the morning.

    Unfortunately, there is no such easily-accessible place where people can experience surround music. [​IMG]
