Default Blu-Ray Sapphire 3 and 4

I have cautiously been following the Blu-ray-HD DVD battle and now with Warner going exlusively Blu-ray, I believe it will be the dominant surviver in the High Definition war. I even own twelve Blu-ray movies, but alas I have been reluctant to purchase a player as of yet. I really don't want a PS3 player/game machine. I love Sony products, and have seriously been considering purchasing the BDP-S2000ES model, but haven't due to it's lack of profile 1.1 and DTS-MA. I have read that Sony is planning on releasing Sapphire 3 and 4 players which will be 1.1 and BD Live capable. I would also surmise that they would have DTS MA as well, but cannot confirm this. Does anyone know when these new machines will be released, and if they will release an "ES" model?

Thanks Cobra

Release date is sometime later this year. At CES these were just prototypes.

I believe the big difference between the two is the sapphire 4 will internally decode all the different audio codecs whereas the 3 can only bitstream
