as luck would have it, the more expensive BDP-CX7000ES which shares the same hardware and circuitry as the BDP-CX960 was reviewed and quite favourably in fact in the current february issue of of the highly respected HOME THEATER magazine. if i may quote what was said of the bluray video/audio playback as compared to the excellent oppo bdp83 in the article ;D

 

"

I compared the Sony’s 1080p/24 video output with my reference OPPO BDP-83, and I couldn’t detect [u]any difference[/u] (J.J. Abrams’ bluray reboot of Star Trek) in picture or sound quality

Compared with many current video server products, many of which start at $5,000 and go up dramatically from there, [u]this MegaChanger is a bargain[/u]

"

 

"

offers Blu-ray performance at 1080p/24 that’s [u]on par with the best[/u] we’ve seen and very solid DVD upconversion, which makes it attractive if you’re looking for large-capacity storage and management and don’t want to spend media server money

"

 

 

unfortunately the price at amazon has risen from us$558 to us$720 over the weekend. though still a good buy but it could have been the best buy of the year at us$558 ;D
