When will Sony bring out the 790's Successor?
They have brought out this one already:
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad 4 & iPhone 4S.
wow ok, big step up in price though.
Although sold via Richer Sounds, this has now be taken off Sony's UK website ?
All very strange (have a read of my post below this one in Blu Ray section).
Does anyone know what is going on ?
No Sony press release either ?
It may be the replacement / successor, but has less features & cant play as many file formats.
Plus the 790 has a lot of the parts in it that some of the so called hi end players have.
I certainly would not consider it an upgrade after having had a demo, it is no better to my eyes & ears.
TV: Sony KDL-46HX853 ( calibrated ), Virgin Tivo Box, BD Players: Sony BDP-S790, PS3, PS4 & Panasonic DMR-BWT700
A/V Amp: Yamaha RXV-767 (NEED UPGRADE)
Speakers: Dali Ikon 6 Front L/R, Dali Ikon 1's Surround, Dali Ikon Vocal 2 Centre, B&W ASW610 Subwoofer.
Sony Bravia 46HX853 Calibrated Settings
As per our chat on the other thread. The 790 will be discontinued before Christmas with no replacement due out untill around March. I have been reliably informed that there wont be any further price reductions so grab one while you can.

I did and I am very happy with it.
