    I was thinking that the Sony DVP-NS999ES would be discontinued soon, as it's been out for awhile. Well in perusing crutchfield.com this evening, I saw that the 'NS999ES is just now available in the US in silver! It looks sharp! Check this out:

    Supposedly Sony has developped a new chipset for this player that gets rid of the Chroma Upsampling problem.

    Nick, I read about that in one of your posts recently. I guess that and the release of the silver version means that Sony is going to stick with the 'NS999ES for awhile.

    Now, if only Sony would offer their new models in black (grrrr)!

    I actually might wind up getting a black DVP-NS999ES to replace my two-channel-SACD 'S9000ES. I had really wanted Sony's new 400-disc SACD/DVD changer, but I just can't go with silver components. Maybe with any luck they will offer it in silver and black.

    If Sony developed a new chipset I think it's only fair they fix the 999s that are already out there. They got enough complaints about it. The five year warranty should cover it.

    According to my dealer, it is seviceable warranty work. They should be fixed for free, and your authorized dealers and/or Sony service depot should be able to do it without seding it in to Sony.

    Keep in mind this is what my dealer told me. I have had no direct contact with Sony.

    Greg, got it. I actually like the look of silver components. It's a nice change of pace. In the end, I would probably go with the 'NS999ES, as it is likely a better audio component than the ES megachanger.
