Sony officially discontinued the SCD-CE775 5 disc SACD changer on March 12th (according to Crutchfield). The player is currently selling for $179 at retailers that still have them. It is built almost exactly like the 222ES (less one transformer), and is selling for $300 less. Get them while you still can! Hopefully, Sony will come out with a new player at this price level, but it will no doubt be greatly cheapened. I don't know how they even sold it at that price and still made a profit since it's built so well. I appologize if I've encouraged any "SACD is dead" responses, but this is very disconcerting to me.
