View Full Version : Sony DVP-S9000ES...good deal or not?

So, I may be able to pick this DVD Player up to replace my Sony DVP-S7700 for $650. Is this a steal or am I not going to see much of a difference? I am wanting Progressive Scan since I just bought a Mits 65" HDTV. Opinions and any comments would be appreciated.

If that's new sound good I think? There is one in our local paper used asking $500.00.....

I replaced my DVP-S7700 with the 9000ES last October and saw a noticable improvement using the progressive scan output on my Mits 65857 HDTV. Sounds like a good price if new since I paid $1200! Good Luck.

To add to this....its a 100% better player,not to mention you can venture out in SACD 2 channel.
The TV you own, you pretty much NEED a progressive scan player to show off what the TV is capable of.
It's a STEAL at that price point...just buy it.I would in your shoes.

Hey mantis...great minds must think alike :) it is shipping Monday. Can't wait. I have owned the Sony 7000, the 7700 and now this one. Rave reviews were given all over the net about this one. I hope this player likes my TV. My 7700 already shows a wicked interlaced picture, but everyone says the 9000ES progressive picture will blow it away! I'll keep ya posted.

all of your players where refernece in there day...the 9000 es is no different.I loved that player.Its heavy,built like a tank and the blue light on the front is damn cool.I even like the way it loads the disk.Performance is key, not looks..you got both my friend.
Just a tid bit,use the analog outs for SACD...they don't pass down the digital out.It's also only a 2 channel SACD player...but how cares...there hardly no disks out in multichannel for SACD anyway......so enjoy the saving's ang I can't wait for your review of the new player.
By the way I loved the 7700,I liked the way it loaded the disk in as well, very cool front panel.

The 9000ES is great. However you should hold on to this one. The 9000ES may be Sony's best for awhile. For example Sony made the MDP600 Laserdisc player. The came out with other models but not as good. In fact the MDP600 is still indemand on ebay.
Just a tip. I am not going to sell my 9000es like I would not part with my SDA-SRS. They are in the same league.

I would agree with that 2 a degree,
Built quality all day buy Sony already out classed the 9000es witht the 900v, it has 12 bit video and upgraded the SACD to multichannel.It doesn't have the killer built quality but it does have it where it counts.
ES will have a new player out soon,they always do.

Well, I just received the 9000ES and am totally blown away from the night and day difference compared to the 7700. First of all, the Progressive picture to my HDTV is stunning. Second of all, sonically....It is insanely better than the 7700 in regards to warmth, impact, and fullness. Lord Of The Rings was the first movie watched on this player, and even my wifes jaw was on the floor! My RT16's, 12's, and CS350LS sound like new speakers! I didn't hear any difference from the 7000 to the 7700 but the 9000ES is night/day. For the price I paid, I feel l hella scored on this deal. It would take a lot for me to upgrade for awhile at this point. I say that now, but I have admitted to myself that I have the 'Upgraditis' disease. Step one is admitting it :)
Thanks everyone for the comments!

I am sure you did, it is a good player at a good price,
Didn't know you had sold it and I thought it was funny how you were dogging the 7700.
