Gently used and works perfectly. Got it up on eBay and looking for someone to buy it who understands just how great a player these are. http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=190621756209&index=0&nav=SEARCH&nid= 72076386436 ----------------- Sony: KDL52XBR7, STR-DA7100ES, DVP-NS9100ES, PS3, RDR-VX500, CDP-CE535 DirecTV: HR20 HD DVR Harmony: 880 Athena: AS-F2, AS-C1, AS-R1, AS-P400 Stuart's: Glass Toslink Better Cable: (3) HDMI [ This message was edited by: SniperCane on 2012-01-02 08:16 ]
Very Nice Setup!!! Gotta love the sound of those of those wonderful AS-F2's, dont ya? And once you get that XBR4, you'll complete that slice of A/V perfection!! [ This message was edited by: SniperCane on 2008-08-08 11:10 ]
All I can say to each new AVR release in the last 3 years is.......................ehh. It seems all Sony's R&D is focusing on lately is providing more HDMI connectvity and little else really. The audio side has been ignored for the most part. It makes me increasing glad that I got my 7100es when I did. Looks like I've got a keeper for the long run. [addsig]
Nuts n Bolts: I too have an XBR1. I have had the OB replaced once already and it looks as if it might be going again. The thing has been serviced 3 times total however. What was the last straw that finally got Sony to replace the thing?? Because I love this TV, but the problems I fear are becoming chronic. Any info you can provide would be helpful. Thanks!!
It's HEEEERRREEE!!!!!! Just finished hooking everything up and rearranging the entertainment center to accomidate it. Haven't had a chance to fully audition it yet but as soon as I'm done posting this Miles Davis is about to come alive right here in my room. I'll give my full impressions soon, along with some updated pics of my system. Thanks again for everybody's thoughts and encouragement!!! [addsig]

I am sure you will no issues with warranty. Most of the 9100's have no problems. Just something I found. Congrates on a great SACD player. You will love it. Great price on a new 9100ES.

Well..... after careful consideraton, I've decided to take the plunge and just purchased a 9100ES. Believe it or not I have been personally wrestling with this decsion from the moment I purchased my 7100ES. And while the PS3 and it's amazing ability to produce multi-channel/Hi-Res Stereo SACD temporarily eased this want, I couldn't hold back any longer. So Maxx, or others, where can I get those Belkin i-Link cables?? ----------------- Sony: KDS-R50XBR1-SXRD, STR-DA7100ES, PS3, RDR-VX500, CDP-CE535 DirecTV: HR20 HD DVR Harmony: 880 Athena: ..
About to take the plunge and buy a stand alone SACD/CD player. My question is analog interconnects vs. i-link. Pros/Cons. As much as I'd love to pick up the 9100ES to match with my 7100ES, the single disc tray is admittedly a BIG draw back to me. And as I'd be using the machine strictly as a music transport ( the PS3 is arguably one of the best upconverting DVD players out there that, oh, BTW is also one of the best Blu-Ray players as well!!) it's video capabilities are inconsquential to me. So I'm wondering whether buying the 9100ES is worth it solely for its i-link capability??? ..
^^^ Saw that system in S&V or Home Theater and thought ".........Stupid Money". And that's exactly what it is. Maxx is right. Audiophile eye-candy is all that and the one in the first post is. Ear Candy is what matters most to me, and frankly that can be (and is a lot of ways HAS been) achieved with the system I already have. [ This message was edited by: SniperCane on 2008-02-08 11:53 ]
Thanks for understanding my point Maxx. Sometimes what makes sense in my brain gets lost in translation to the keyboard. However I have noticed that when listening to other systems using Analog receivers, they come across as colored and muddy to me after being exposed to both the 7100 and my previous 3000ES. But I'm sure there are planty of other factors playing into that as well. [addsig]
Well if they are going to do that kind of update then the they might as well include the ability to decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-MA as well. As easy as it would be to do this type of firmware upgrade, its my fear that Sony would rather have you buy a 5300ES then actually do anything that would improve something in their back catalog so to speak. And that's a shame, because while their inital introduction was reft with probelms, these digital recievers ( esp the 9000ES and it's cousin the 7100ES ) are some the most under rated recievers that Sony has ever put to market.&nbs ..
Am I correct in saying that the only way to get this firmware upgrade is to send in for service??? And if your aren't hacing HDMI issues ( which I'm not ) is there any reason to get it upgraded in the first place??? [addsig]
Depending on what version firmare you have, the PS3 is capable of internally decoding all Next-Gen audio codecs except for DTS-MA although that may be solved with another firmware update due sometime around Christmas. All but the newest of receivers are unable to decode these next gen codecs. Your 7100ES (and mine) included. Instead the PS3 coverts them into lossless PCM passes it through. There is no discernable difference in sound. Think of bit stream as a zipped version of the audio stream. The PS3 unzippes it and then sends it through instead of you ..
maverick, Your post got me thinking. The PS3 is HDMI 1.3 compliant. So in my line of thniking it should output exactly as you say with the seperate digital clocks for both sudio and video. Question does it output that way if it detects that the 7100ES isn't 1.3?? As far what gets flagged on the reciever........ I have the PS3 set to output only LPCM for the sole purpose of decoding Dolby True HD internally and sending it along to the 7100ES. I haven't tried to send SACD via bitstream, but, when I get home, I'll try it and see what happens. Whatever th ..

So it seems, from what I have read, that one would need an HDMI version v1.3 capable receiver to receive the SACD audio from the PS3 via HDMI. Toli Untrue. The 7100ES is not HDMI 1.3 compliant, and handles multichannel SACD beautifully from my PS3. Just lik ..
