...man, you guys are all over the place with these. I searched the forum and got so many results going off is so many tangents that I just decided to ask outright.
I'm not springing for one just yet. I probably won't be getting one until this summer. I started looking now and all I see on the Intarwebs is how great the Playstation 3 is and you guys seem to go for that Oppo BDP-95 which is a grand worth of wampum and far more than I want to spend. I'm thinking more in the 300-400 clams range.
So the question is, is there a decent Blu-ray player that also handles the high resolution music formats like SACD, DVD-A and so on with a decent audio output for 300-400 bones or less you can recommend? This isn't going in any high end rig. It's just for the living room TV. When I go doing a hardcore HT system or something then I'll worry about the hottest thing going. Right now, utility duty with some nice features and an audio output decent enough that it won't sound like badgers farting in Lederhosen.
