Post under Discussion: http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/shownews.php?id=7696 Title: "Philips unwraps new range-topping DVD/SACD player - complete with HDMI" What does "range-topping" mean? What does "complete with HDMI" mean? This type of player is unacceptable as their is NO multi-channel audio over HDMI. Sony and Phillips need to get their act together and send the DSD/SACD signal over HDMI. Spending for six expensive analog cables when the one included HDMI cable can "do it all" is rather stupid. This is especially true since Sony and Phillips are founding members of the HDMI organization: http://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/index.asp So much for accuracy in media. See the Panasonic S97 Dvd player and XR70 receiver for TRUE "range-topping" and "complete with HDMI" examples. I also listen to the BBC World Report and find it full of bias and errors too. Too much "sexing up" is, apparently contagious.
