The only Universal player I've found with Blu Ray/SACD/CD/Netflix Streaming/ Analog out and Coax is
the SonyUBP-X1000 ES, at about $500.
Any others you can suggest?
No Netflix Streaming, but I already have it with Fire Stick.
Not quite as good as streaming through the 7007, tho.
But I want SACD/CD playback for that system.
No reviews yet, Pioneer just came out in Sept.
I'm guessing it will sound better on SACDs than the Sony, at twice the Price, closer to the Marantz , which was $1200.
Maybe harder to find today - But Oppo made a slew of units that fit that bill-
Models from the 103 and up-
Check out the AA Trader -
My Marantz will still play Thumb Drives up to 24/192 and Stream Netflix, so it's not a Door Stop just yet...
Why not pop a new laser in the 7007 then? I think they're less than $50 on eBay.
I had it fixed by Marantz, but cost almost $300.
The original part lasted over 5 years, but the repair/replacement of a module of some sort only last a year or so.
It's now out of production, and I wouldn't have it repaired again.
The Sony 1000ES is only $500.
But I wouldn't want to have to turn on the TV just to play a CD or SACD.
I'm considering the new Pioneer at $1000, but no reviews yet.
Streaming is fine on Amazon Prime/Netflix, but I have a number of DVDs I want to be able to watch too.
It seems that most of the older universal players have some Achilles heel.
