About the Sony DVP-S9000ES
One of the most exciting components for videophiles and audiophiles alike has to be the stunning DVP-S9000ES. It's the only video product to join Sony's ES Series, the elevated standard in audio — and now video — reproduction.

As extraordinary for music as it is for movies, the DVP-S9000ES also plays ultra-high resolution stereo Super Audio CDs. 

Finally, operating the '9000ES is a real pleasure. When listening to music, CD Text scrolls across the player's display, so you don't have to turn on your TV just to listen. Of course, if you prefer to switch off the display, you can do that, too. The remote control is simply the best DVD player remote we've yet seen. Bravo, Sony!

In its January 2001 issue, Stereophile Guide to Home Theater selected the '9000ES for an Editor's Choice award.

The glowing review concluded: "The Sony DVP-S9000ES is a very special product that provides superb CD performance. It is very much worth the price of admission, even for those interested in only one of those applications."

The SkyFi Testing Process for CD Players: 

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure that there are no signs of heat stress or damage. Capacitors are checked for telltale signs of predictive failure including bulging, shrunken wrappers, or physical leakage. We also inspect resistors and other passive components for signs of overheating. When the unit is first powered on we check the drawer mechanism function. After the visual inspection we connect the CD Player’s RCA outputs to our Sencore PA81 Power Analyzer which simulates a real world input impedance and allows us to monitor the output on an oscilloscope.

We start with a test CD with precision test signals to verify proper output on both channels. If the CD player has balanced outputs these are also tested at this time. If this check passes, we move onto evaluation with actual music CDs. We listen for clicks, skips, and drops during playback. At this time we also check the transport functions including skip, ff, rw, play, pause, repeat, and programming if applicable. If the unit has a remote control, all remote control functions are verified. If the CD player is capable of SACD playback we test its ability to read SACD layers on multiple discs including standard and hybrid SACDs. At this time we also check the unit’s digital outputs were applicable. If SACD layers are being properly read we should see the digital outputs mute during playback. On redbook CD playback we verify that each digital output maintains proper lock on our bench DAC. After bench testing is completed, CD players are set up for testing on our long term test rig. During extended testing we make sure that unit can play through several different discs from beginning to end with no skips or lock ups.
