Anyone compared the Sony 9000ES with the 999ES?

I was considering on buying the 999ES DVD player which is the replacement for the 9000ES but understand that the build quality is not up to that of the 9000ES. I am mainly planning on using it for my HT system but also as a backup SACD/CD player to my SCD-1? How does the video performance compare to that of the 9000ES? How does Redbook CD playback compare to that of the 9000ES?
Go look at I read some of the posts today. The 999 does not seem to be a big jump in audio or video.
Thanks for the helpful tip. helped alot.
