I figured this player needed its own thread instead of getting buried in the NS70H "Shift Issue" thread.

Sony's official press release can be found here:

Sony Press Release

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!

Here's hoping the shift issue is fixed!

Crutchfield.com is showing a 3/23/06 release date. When did your retailer say they would be getting it?

Good call. The shift issue is blown out of proportion as much as Macroblocking with Faroudja chipset. That thread needs to die.

Why not? Typical CD player today is 10% of the cost of the typical CD player of 1985. What does it mean?

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.

Has anyone pre-ordered from J&R, Amazon, or Crutchfield?

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?

I called Circuit City and they now have it on their system (NS70H is out) but no stock at the moment. We're getting close!

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.

Does anyone else find it a little ridiculous that we can't ask a Sony rep whether the 75H has fixed the shift issue?

First they'd have to quit playing dumb admit that there IS a shift problem.

Sony does not admit to flaws. Ever.

Crutchfield is now listing the ship date as "uncertain".

Nooooooo!

I was actually delusional enough to think I might be picking up a new DVD player this evening on my way home from work! Oh well.

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.

I see that auction. I'd rather wait to see how the player performs though and if there is a shift. Give us a review when you get it.

Amazon is not listing it as a pre-order now. It says it usually ships in 24 hours. Anyone that pre-ordered have it ship yet?

Has anyone seen a manual for the NS75 yet? I'm curious to know if it will support 480i over HDMI, or just 480p and above, like the NS70?

Wow!

This is just the player I need while I am figuring out what to do about Blu-Ray and HD DVD.

I hope that they fixed the image shift problem and the audio delay problem. If they did, I will buy it in a minute!

Can't wait for you guys to review it!

Thanks,
Stan

I checked my order status and it now says:

Shipping estimate: March 27, 2006
Delivery estimate: March 31, 2006 - April 4, 2006

But i wouldnt be surprised it gets pushed back.

The one I ordered on eBay last night has shipped and the tracking number shows it should be in my hands on March 30th. I'll be in Austin then - just great..... Nice present to come home to though!
