    anyone see/buy/use this unit yet? looks like it has alot of similar features as the es9000. wanting multi-channel sacd vs. dvd-a because i work at a sony retailer. what about the 'chroma-bug'? does THIS particular unit have the chipset w/the chroma-bug problem? how bad is that problem anyway? thanks in advance. steve

    I have the 9000ES which supposedly doesn't have the chroma upsampling bug as bad as some. On my 53" display, it's rarely visible, and when it does show up, it's usually during the credits, where I don't really care. To me, the elimination of the bug would be worth $10-20 max, but not worth pulling my player out of the rack unless I was already changing something else. It's just a non-issue to me.
    Some people seem to be quite sensitive to it, however. It's reportedly worse on larger displays, and virtually invisible on small ones.
    It's just another thing we have to judge for ourselves.
