I'll wait for some reviews. I'll tell you, this one could be my next player.

Player will not be available until April.

I prefer not to be the guniea pig for a new player.

Yeah that's the most important thing for sure when it comes to a fully featured Blu-ray Disc player to bring Blu-ray to the masses.

J6P doesn't care about what upconverting chip it uses!!!!!!

It will be enough to write "upscales your DVDs to 1080p!" on the box. 1080p = good

Does sound encouraging. If I get a player like this it will put off my PS3 purchase indefinitely.

I could probably get this one easily. But then the dilemma hits. Do I use this in the main set-up and lose the PS3 which has all my non-BD media linked just so I can gain the uncompressed audio? Or Would this be the kids player?

Doesn't your receiver have an HDMI in for the PS3? If so, I am not sure what you would gain from moving away from the PS3 as it can decode all the audio codecs internally.

Quick question ack. I have my PS3 set to PCM and was wondering if that is correct. On my Onkyo 606 it shows Multichannel PCM. Is that what I am looking for when using the PS3?

Yes. That is exactly what you want. I have done several tests bitstreaming on my Samsung 1500 vs decoding internally and sending PCM to my Onkyo and there is no real audible difference except bitstreaming tends to be a few decibels louder and my receiver does not light up with "TrueHD" or "DTS-HD-MA" when using my PS3.

Thanks. So the lights for True HD and DTS MA should light up when using my A2?

No. The A2 cannot does not have HDMI 1.3 and cannot bitstream lossless either. Like the PS3 it will decode TrueHD internally and send out via PCM. You should see Multichannel PCM on your receiver as well.

Would this player be better than the sammy1400 if it has faster load times I would surely consider a change since it sounds like it would be cost effective.I get so annoyed waiting sometimes as much as 90 seconds..

You will have to wait for reviews, but I would suspect that the load times would be faster than the 1400 since the Vizio is using a new SoC. I have a Samsung 1500 and it is much faster than my Samsung 1000. It is just slightly slower than my PS3 overall.

But it definitely looks like a round peg for a round hole.


Lee Stewart interested in a Blu colored player?? If anyone on the east coast sees the Rapture , send me a PM. Since I'm an hour behind, it'll give me a heads up.

Also, we'd all be remiss without this...

They LIVE!!!!!!
