I have a DVP-S7000 and recently purchased a DVP-NS999ES. I am very happy with the 999. The video quality is very good. My 7000 isn't reading some dual layer discs very well, so I made the switch. The 999 does not have the chroma bug, contrary to some sources. I am not familiar with the other players you listed. You can find either of the Sony's at good prices now.
Was the picture quality a noticable set up with
the DVP-NS999ES? My DVP-S7000 works great but I
was wondering if a newer model would give me better picture quality. I am using a Sony 36" XBR TV but
the TV does not do progressive scan.
In what areas did you notice the DVP-NS999ES being
better than the DVP-S7000?
I feel that the picture quality is noticeably better with the DVP-NS999ES. My 7000 looks a little more edgy and sharp. The 999 has a softer look. In addition, the 999 has many more user adjustments for video. I have not messed with them much yet, but there are tons of adjustments you can make (many more than the 7000).
Per your earlier thread, the 999 is very smooth when changing layers on a dual-layer DVD.
Build quality is good, just like the 7000. The 999 also has multi-channel SACD. The 9000ES is 2-channel only SACD.
Good luck with your choice. Does your S7000 have the switches?
