    Is anyone else interested (and still waiting) for one of these to appear? Changer must contain both DVD-A and SACD decoding and personally, I would be willing to be slightly forgiving on the video shortcomings if present. 200,300 or prefferably a 400 disk capacity would be ideal.
    I don't think such a machine presently exists but, has anyone heard or read about an upcoming product?

    I have the Sony 777ES which has SACD but no DVD-A.
    When I spoke to a Sony REP about a year ago, Sony will not do DVD-A because of royalities. They are the coinventor of SACD so they get 50% of SACD royalities but only 1/16th of DVD-A royalities.

    Simple matter of $$$$$

    Grant- I've considered the 777es and may still buy one of these. I think I'll wait just a little bit longer to see if anything else with both formats comes along. If not, I'm going to get the 777es.

    BTW If you do there is a SW update that sony has for it.
    Speeds up the layer change. All you have to do is burn it on a cd and load the cd into the changer.
