Sony DVP-S9000ES SACD/DVD Player


Sign up for a Vons-supermarket club card today, and you can purchase a name-brand DVD player for $170! It's true. We saw it with our own eyes.

Sony DVP-S9000ES DVD Players


I bought one of these because I was not too thrilled with my Arcam DVD/SACD player and most of the reviews said the Sony could walk on water.

Sony DVP-S9000ES DVD Players


The SonyDVP-S9000ES looks great and is built like a tank. I like using the remote from our old $80 Sony DVD player better though, it is not as wide and scans better and has some other features I can't find on the S9000ES remote. I would of gave this...

Sony DVP-S9000ES DVD Players


A friend turned me on to this machine, he bought one without a remote for $200 and then found that the SACD didn't work, the CD player sure sounded good though, I waited until a one owner unit showed up locally for $175 with remote and all functions...

Excellent CD/SACD Player and good for movies too!


I bought this player used for $300 after reading many positive reviews about its sound quality. I already have a satisfactory DVD-A player (Denon 3300) but was a little disappointed in its CD performance (a little cold, slightly harsh but really quite ...

Excellent sound and general build quality. Good software and programmability.

Sony DVP-S9000ES DVD Players


A long and storied path has finally brought me to the 9000, where this journey ends until HD-DVD is a reality. I no longer search for the next box. This modern classic has eclipsed in both video and audio performance any dvd player i've owned in the...

A beautiful progressive scan DVD player


Most everything about this player has been covered in one review or another, but I thought I would weigh in with a summary view. I replaced a Denon multi-DVD player (about a $700 model, can't remember number) with this after the Denon broke down. ...
