Hi guys. Any news when the Sony BDP-S790 is out?


Active Member
I put mine on order in the middle of June at a local shop and they tell me it may be in by the beginning of August.

I'm just trying to find out if this is out yet as I don't see any threads regarding it's performance yet, but I know if I'm going to get a new Blu-Ray player I want it to be this one.

Any news yet?

Cheers, MP

New poster on here but been lurking
around for a while.
Can anyone tell me if the 790 produces
the same high pitched 'whining noise'
alluded on to on other threads to earlier
Sony BDs?
I have a S570 which I really like but
the noise which it makes can be annoying
for example watching Tinker, Tailor on
Blu ray last night my wife could hear it
and even I thought it was very loud.
As I like the built in wi-fi and all the
other apps I'm considering an upgrade
To the 790.
Thanks and apologies for the long post
