I just came back from the Sony Store in Eaton Centre (Toronto).
I asked one of the sales people about the 975 issue and had no idea.
I spoke with the manager of the store and he told me they are not allowed to sell it anymore even though he's got 5 in stock (in the back).
He couldn't provide any other details as to why or if new line coming out.
I don't know about US....but this is the news in Toronto...
Yep, its true for the US too.
The Sony store in NYC isn't selling any more 975 players either, according to the sales guy (even though one was on display). A quiet recall indeed. No info on what is coming out to replace it, though my guess is it will be the same player with a fixed tray and updated software, and they'll call it the 975.5 :)
I'm debating about whether to wait for it (I really did like the pic quality) or go with Panny's new 77 player...
