I've been waiting for the Sony BDP-S1000ES to arrive in Canada for some time now. To date, there's still no listing for it, however last week the BDP-S760 appeared on Sonystyle.ca for an MSRP of $549.99 CAD. For the life of me I can't see any difference in specs between these two models, and the BDP-S1000ES goes for an MSRP of $699.99 USD.
To make matters even more confusing, I found the excerpt from a Sony press release:
"The BDP-S760 incoporates the most cutting edge technology Sony has ever included in its Blu-ray players. Incorporating aspects of our ES (Elevated Standard) advancements, the BDP-S760 comes equipped with an HD Reality Enhancer, which smoothes the image tone, and reduces picture noise to create a highly realistic display. This is complemented by Super Bit Mapping for video, which ensures incredibly natural colour reproduction. All of this adds up to a stunningly smooth and pristine Full HD picture.
The BDP-S760 also showcases the unique Multi-channel Headphone Surround technology from Sony which gives you a total surround sound experience, even when you're watching a movie on your standard headphones"
Does anyone know if there is a difference? Comparing specs, they look the same except for the included 4 GB memory stick with the BDP-S1000ES.
