I am interested in the Sony NS500 primarily as a CD player with SACD capabilities and as backup for my Panasonic DVD player. Does anyone using this model have any thoughts on it. I notice that Circuit City has it down to $220 which seems low. Is this unit closing out to be replaced by an newer unit? Any comments or thoughts

concerning this model would be appreciated. I have a modest

DD5.1 surround sytem due to my living in a small apartment, if that would have any bearing on your comments.

Best

Stay away from the NS500V. You can buy a CE775 for $179 at some stores and have a much better player. The NS500V is cheaply built, has a switching power supply, and has all of the audio fuctions integrated into one DAC chip. I've got one that I'm prototyping for modification, and I can even phase the switching noise coming from that power supply yet. You've been warned!
