I've been away from these forums for a while enjoying my setup, but I'm now thinking it's time to buy a BluRay player. I've read good things about the Sony 550, although it seems to be in short supply at the moment so I was wondering if there are any alternative, or perhaps better, players I should be considering. Connectivity-wise it would have to be: * 7.1 analogue audio into the Lexicon, with 1080p24/25 HDMI video into the Crystalio, or * PCM into the Lexicon via HDMI, with 1080i48/50/60 looped back out into the Crystalio for reinterlacing. (annoyingly the Crystalio doesn't support hi-res PCM via HDMI, and the Lexicon doesn't support 1080p via HDMI, hence the above options) I intend to keep my DV29 for CD playback via an analogue link (and probably DVD playback too, via HDMI 480i/576i and coaxial digital connections) Things I don't think I need (or want to pay extra for) are: * Video "enhancement" or scaling options, I have my Crystalio for that. * Audio filtering trickery, as I just send everything full-range into my Audyssey which then handles crossovers etc. Budget-wise I guess it should 'fit' with the rest of the components. All suggestions very much appreciated!
