    Hi!
    Looking for a 3D BDP to go with my old workhorse, the Yamaha RX-V650 connected in 7.1 configuration. I started off looking for a player with 7.1 analog out to get HD audio and found that these are apparently the only two apart from the expensive Oppos.

    The HDMI will be connected directly to the TV & projector . Both players have twin HDMI out.
    This player will not be used for music as I have a separate hifi setup.
    Which of these would be a better option?

    And then I came across articles suggesting that HD audio is not so much different from DD or DTS.
    Has any forum member actually checked for this?

    Suggestions and advice please!!

    Can't comment on the 2 players you mention, but you will certainly notice the difference between HD audio and regular DD/DTS.

    I can't speak to the Samsung but I used to own the panasonic and it was a good player though I only ever used the HDMI. I enjoyed it and would recommend. There is a world of difference between ordinary 5.1 and HD Audio. Clearly noticeable to me as well.
