All you boys and girls eagerly awaiting the availability of the Philips DVD963SA are going to have to wait quite a bit longer. I just got off the phone with Oade Bros. and they told me they just spoke to their Philips rep this morning. It appears that the 963SA will not be shipping until the "end of December". The players are IN THE COUNTRY as I write this, but Philips wants to clear out the existing stock of 962SA's before they start selling the 963SA--the 962SA costs more and they want to move as many units as possible before the cheaper, better 963SA comes out. IMHO, this is a bone-headed decision by Philips. If they really wanted to move these 962SA units, you'd think they'd make it available through more retailers--only ones I can think of are Oade, Onecall and JandR. Plus, the people (mostly like us) who even know about the 962SA and 963SA would know to wait for the less expensive, improved product. Well, this just sucks.
