is called the DVD-NS999ES

Quote:

The big news for audiophiles was the introduction of the DVD-NS999ES, an advanced DVD player with a 14-bit, 108MHz video DAC, pixel-for-pixel video processing, "Precision Cinema Progressive" video output—and multichannel SACD capabilities.

The single-disc player, which replaces the DVD-NS9000ES, uses frame and beam construction throughout, with a mechanically isolated non-resonant subchassis for the spindle, motor, and optical pickup. The 999 deletes the copper-clad (or solid copper) ground planes that have characterized high-end Japanese designs in recent years. "Environmental concerns" were the official explanation for the design change. Available in October, the DVD-NS999ES will sell for approximately $1200.

What is a DVD-NS9000ES? Sony's got the DVP-S9000ES, which is the well-known SACD(2-channel)/DVD/CD player... either the author messed up the model number, or Sony's been putting out players faster than I can keep up with them
