    I have not seen the Sony 3000ES player before. Does anyone have a price on this? It seems that it is a less costly version of the 9000ES. Could be tempting.

    The Sony Hong Kong press release dated 08/20/2003 mentions following features for XA3000ES:

    The new Super Audio CD player line-up also includes the SCD-XA3000ES, which offers the following outstanding features:

    * Dual discrete laser pick-up mechanism
    * Plays multi-channel Super Audio CD, stereo Super Audio
    * CD, standard CD, Audio CD-R, and Audio CD-RW
    * Six independent converters, one for each channel
    * Multi-channel analog outputs for Super Audio CD (5.1)
    * Optical & coaxial digital outputs for CD
    * Super Audio CD/CD text display


    Not much insight though..

    Lee, my guess is that the 'XA3000ES will not be released in the US. Remember that Sony did not the release the 'XA333ES, the step-down model from the 'XA777ES, here.
