I have the 7000 and 7700 in my system. I briefly had the S330 and the S560 (for 10 days each) and the audio performance on movies was terrible. Worst was the bass response followed by poor treble and dialogue intelligibility. Note that the 7700 is almost discontinued, expect to pick one up for around $700 brand new. Do not fall for one of those ads stating list of $1400 and asking $750 for used pieces. In my opinion a used piece should cost between $450 and $550 at most.
Thanks all. Shred, when you say toy, are you refering to build quality or video repro? Amrik, how did the video quality compare between the 7700 and the 570? Was the 570 as bad as the 330 in audio repro? This would be easy if you always got what you payed for, but as we all know this is often not the case in the world of consumer electronics.
I bought the 850 and wish I didn't. Very soon after purchase it had problems tracking some dvds. These were new dvds. The build quality of the box looks good on the outside. But wait until you hear the changer operate. The machine itself sounds terrible when changing cds or dvds. I have found that the convenience of having the machine hold that many discs is no convenience at all. It is too hard to find the one you want without going to a list. Sure you can program it but you would need a 2 week vacation to do it. I am not familiar with the 7000 but it has to be better than this.
The DVD-S7700 IS GREAT FOR MOVIES OKAY FOR 2 CHANNEL LISTENING. DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE 850. DO YOU REALLY NEED 100 DVD CHANGER?. All thoes moving parts. Something has to be taken back for all the added cost;the sound quality. Anyway that is my opinion. At least you have one more vote in DVP-S7700 favor.
