Can't say enough about the superb picture and the quality of this player. Even my DVD's look better when viewed with this unit. With the Sony quality that I have always trusted, it is good to know that I have a 5 year warranty.

Unheard of specs and true 7.1 surround

ES (Elevated Standard) at its best!


Sure, it's a bit pricey - BUT worth every cent in my opinion. The only complaint that I have is that I wish the remote control had a shuttle-wheel for fast forwarding & reversing. I held out on purchasing a newer Blu-Ray player until I could afford...

Question for slingshot


I've been waiting a long time for Sony to build a truly high-end ES Blu-ray deck worthy of being added to my existing Sony ES stack (scd-xa777es, dvp-s9000es, str-da777es), and they finally did it. I've only had this deck for a few months at this...
