    Which Disc Player for a 5.1 Surround System?

    I am looking for a player to complement my existing 5.1 surround setup. I need it mostly to play old CDs and DVDs (not even HD!). I have exactly one BluRay-disc and little incentive to buy more, since we already have Netflix. Were I to buy more discs they would more likely be opera than film...

    Blu-Ray player under £200?

    This is for a bedroom system for occasional use. Must have analogue audio out for RCA interconnects to amplifier for CD playback and be a lot quicker to load discs than the aged Sony 350 it will replace. Recommendations?

    Has anyone tried using the Sky HDMI cable with the pink & black plugs with a UHD Blu-Ray player? I've read they're supplied with Skys 4K boxes so could they also handle 4K Blu-Ray?

    Hi All, Just planning my Panasonic GZ2000 with DPUB9000 Blu-Ray. This is going into a small room/snug so am hoping the TV Speakers with Dolby Atmos will do a good job. It's possible to configure the Headphone socket to act as a Subwoofer output so the plan is to get a Gemini 2. As it's a...
