For those who want a taste of what SACD is about, etronics.com is selling the DVP-NS500V for $179 delivered. Then send in for the Sony promo at: http://www.sonystyle.com/images/flas...reedvdsacd.pdf and get your 5 free DVD's. Even w/out the SACD its a great price for a DVD player and the movies. This is the first time I ordered from etronics and they sent me a confimation immediately, a shipping notice the next day, and finally the product at my door 6 days later. They also claimed that they are a authorized Sony dealer when I asked.
