I have had a 222ES for several months, purchased a second one from J&R. Then found a great local deal on the NS900v. This DVD/SACD player is great. The build is close to a ES Player. The Redbook is real good, I have been told that this NS900v has the same six "Super Audio DACs" as the XA-777ES, One forum said that these are the next step up in DAC's? I will need to speak with Sony to find out, or pop the hood to see for myself. The DVD playback is better then the 9000ES. Needless to say the second 222 went back to J&R. This NS900v is worth a good look, street prices at just over $500. My local deal was 40%. And five free dvds to trade Sorry guys this was just a one time shot at this local purchase. If I was on the fence for a SACD changer I would take a good look at this even at current prices.
