I have not looked inside my 760 but it is a much better & heavier build than the 780 most importantly the performance both sound & video via HDMI is superior which is all that concerns me. I do not understand how the rubbish build 780 got an EISA award. 780 quickly replaced by 790 but have not seen it.It seems when they add more features the build quality gets reduced to keep price down or improve margins. The 760 has most of the features of the S5000 ES, I prefer the 760 picture to both the 780 & the Oppo 93 EU and as for BD sound there is no contest the 760 is much better via HDMI.
The Sony BDP-S790 (5.0 lbs) is significantly lighter in weight than the S780 and how would that affect SQ, PQ and overall reliability? So long as this thing lasts a couple of years most people will be happy with it. Sadly this stuff is all disposable.
Thanks for the Polish Link it would appear in performance via HDMI there is very little difference between the 760 & 5000ES if any as I have experienced for myself. Both have Sony Super Bit Mapping and 14 bit resolution. the 760 apparently will not provide 7.1 only 5.1 big deal. The S5000ES will obviously be better for you as a two channel only analogue listener.
HDTVPolska tested also the Sony BDP-S5000ES Blu-ray player. The Sony BD player has Burr-Brown PCM1796 DA converters for the analog outputs (7.1 channel & 2 channel).
