A little while back I e-mailed Onkyo asking if a new model was coming out to replace the 701 DVD Changer, as it was on clearance every where, they replied stating that a new 702 should be out early summer to replace it. I was hoping that it may have SACD and/or DVD-A for around the same price the 701 originally was ($270). But looking at the player specs from crutchfiled (link below) it seems to have very few (if any) upgrades from the 701, none of them significant either. It seems like a solid DVD Changer for $200 I suppose, but I guess I was expecting much more. The Yamaha S1500 is still my main consideration for a quality universal DVD player for the time being.
