Summary: While at first glance the CX7000ES may seem expensive, itâ€™s really a bargain when compared to other media server products. Since Sony is the only company making disc changers, it has no real competition. It compares very favorably to other disc players with high quality output from both DVD and Blu-ray discs and has only a few issues when it comes to deinterlacing standard and hi-def material.
Excerpt: Sony’s foray into the U.S. electronics market began more than 50 years ago when co-founder Akio Morita came to New York to sell a $30 miniature transistor radio. At the time, he attracted the interest of Bulova, a watchmaker with a vast retail network. Bulova offered to buy 100,000 units under one condition—Sony would have to original equipment manufacture (O.E.M.) the radios, and they would be branded and marketed under Bulova’s name.
