Sony's BD changers due

Sony will soon release two of its advanced but long delayed Blu-ray disc changers, according to a recent SonyInsider report. The BDP-CX960 and BDP-CX7000ES, prototypes of which were shown at a few major electronics shows, have been seen on a Swiss product page listing that indicates the latter model is already going on sale, at least in some parts of the world. Specs are still thin, though the BDP-CX960 will hold 200 Blu-ray discs, while the CX700ES model will have a 400-disc capacity. In Sweden, the larger model is priced at the equivalent of $2,250.

Sony is currently selling the HES-V1000 200-disc Blu-ray changer that also has a DLNA-compatible 500GB hard drive. It has been criticized for being slow to load discs, its lack of Profile 2.0 support and no tuner or hard drive. Official ship dates for the two Blu-ray changers for North America are not yet known.
