Sony Prices 400-disc MegaChangers, high-end single-disc Blu-ray player

Sony this morning announced the BDP-CX7000ES (ES=Elevated Standard) and BDP-CX960 400-disc Blu-ray Disc MegaChangers, along with the single-disc BDP-S1000ES Blu-ray player.

The flagship BDP-CX7000ES features 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema, simple integration with third-party automation system, RS232 and IR-in, 7.1 channel analog output, Sony’s HD Reality Enhancer and Super Bit Mapping technologies, and 1080p upscaling from DVDs over an HDMI connection. The BDP-CX960 does without the RS232 and IR-in and ES standard. Both models offer Dolby TrueHD and Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio and High Resolution Audio, as well as bitstream output over HDMI. Overall, these two 400-disc MegaChangers can do pretty well any video-related task you can think of–but you’ll pay. The BDP-CX7000ES will require you to shell out $1900 when it ships this August, while the BDP-CX960 will be $800 when it ships in the fall.

The single-disc BDP-S1000ES also boasts the ES badge with its incorporated Wi-Fi (a/b/g/n), plus 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema, 1080p upscaling, DLNA, plus most of the advanced features of the MegaChangers. Look for the BDP-S1000ES to also ship in August priced at $700.
