I have just been into the local Sony Centre and they have just received their new player. Model DVP-NS92V HDMI scaling to 720p and 1080i ( no mention if scalling over component). Its plays SACD Divix etc in fact the only thing it does not appear do is DVD audio which is no suprise for a Sony player. It has an aluminium front panel and the display can be turned off connections are 1 scart, 1 hdmi, component, composite, 5.1 output. Both optical and coxial digital outputs. Plenty of functions including CD text and disc memory plus a wealth of replay options. It looks and feels like a quality bit of kit however it was so new they had not had a chance to connect it up yet. Price £199 which does not include an HDMI cable.
