RE: With HDMI Does player's sound matter?

"Copy-protection requirements eliminated analog audio outputs from Blu-ray players about five years ago."

The copy protection requirements have nothing to do with analog audio.

Oppo players currently being sold have 7.1 analog outputs. I bet there are other players that have them as well.

As the first response to your post indicates, using HDMI outputs means the player is functioning as a transport. I have had three different BluRay players, including my current Oppo 103, and the HDMI audio outputs were identical; all three had analog audio outputs as well, and the Oppo easily beats the analog output from the other two players (inexpensive Samsung and some other brand I can't recall).
