    Sony will be releasing a flood of SACD-capable players, including 2 SACD-only changers, starting at $149.00.

    Here's the story.

    Lots of interesting cool news from Sony in that post.
    If that DVP-NS975V is nearly as good as the NS900V player they have a winner at $300, and it includes HDMI output that upscales DVD-Video to 720p or 1080i.

    The SCDX-A9000 priced at $3k with 1394 output is nice,
    But 1394 should be placed on ALL their players if they want SA-CD to succeed for the long run.

    Now if we can find more info on that $399 SCDC-2000ES.
    I bet they have out done them selves again and surpassed the 555ES and the 999ES like they did with the new five disk ES changer.

    Jerry, are you referring to the 555 dvd/sacd changer or the 555 sacd/cd player?

    Stephen,
    What I am referencing is:
    http://home1.gte.net/res0f2t3/NC555ES.htm

    I would have to agree, the new DVPNC555ES sounds better,
    at least in our system even though it's a dvd/sacd combo.
    I have since sold my 555ES sacd only, next will be my 222es. The 555ES was first to go only to capitalize on the current demand and the price it would fetch.

    Also if you read the Sony ES DVD Players Technical Background that can be found here:
    http://www.iq.sony.com/srvs/sosdocs/default.asp
    Just enter in model DVPNC555ES
    Sony has no fear to trump their own flagship models
    in short term with trickle down technology that is
    really not trickle down but rather open the flood gates.
    I do agree that it would be nice to see an ES-SACD only player even if only to satisfy the hardest critic’s.
    I think Sony believes they have surpassed previous models
    in this combo.
