Players/Recorders: SACD & DVD-A Players: Sony DVP-NS999ES

 

Sony's new DVP-NS999ES ($1,199) does everything its predecessor did, and adds multichannel SACD playback with integrated bass management. In addition to SACD, the DVP-NS999ES will play just about anything available on a 5" disc: video CDs, DVD-R/RW,...

Sony DVP-NS999ES DVD Players

Sony's "Reference" Standard NON-Hybrid - Not Quite Up To Par...

 

Before I let the title deter you from this unit, I want to be clear: Sony's DVP NS999ES is certainly the flagship player of the Sony line... Yet nevertheless, despite being a very capable unit, Sony once again has introduced a "new" product which it...

Semi-Diverse playback capability, SACD allignment (almost)
