More info AND PICS can be found at one of the major, Sony-authorized etailers. I just typed in "DVP-NS75H" and it brought me right to it. I understand I can not post a direct link to them so if anyone's interested, PM me. Or can I say their name here?
I actually went ahead and placed a preorder figuring I can cancel it if I find it earlier and/or for less and/or find out it's plagued by some bug(s). While it's posted at MSRP, I used the Visa special offer and took $10 off plus got free shipping!
Yeah, I'm glad you started this thread too. I'm probably going to pick one up. At this point, I think I'm going to wait a year before I pick up the hi-def players so I don't want to spend a lot. Just want something good with HDMI upconverting for a year. I like that sony's have the disc memory, a real bonus I think. Please do us all a favor and post a review when you get yours.
I did the same and cancelled after I saw the ship date. I can wait one day to see if the Crutchfield date is accurate. I'm in the market for the 85H. More for the 5-disc changer than the upconversion (I've got an Oppo for that).
I'll be using component input and digital coaxial out. Any possibilities of a upconversion over component fix?
Good call. The shift issue is blown out of proportion as much as Macroblocking with Faroudja chipset. That thread needs to die.
The shift is an important issue for some, that was the deciding factor in my returning the previous player. I am eagerly awaiting the new player to see if the shift via HDMI has been resolved.

I found one! On eBay no less. Anyway, there is a company in Tennessee that has them and just put up a listing with a pretty decent price. They are showing 8 in stock (well 7 now because I bought one). They have very good feedback - that and the fact that eBay conveniently sent me a 10% off coupon made the deal irresistable. I should have it next week and will post a review after I've played with it. Of course the "shift" issue will be the first question I address.
