In Reply to: RE: Gave up on HT... posted by ABliss on January 06, 2022 at 16:01:28
Even though my music and video systems are in separate rooms, I still only have 2 channels for video. Way too much hassle for me, and I'm not thrilled with multichannel. I'm using a decent and very reliable amp for the video system, but it's old and doesn't have digital inputs. Everything goes through my Oppo player and I dread the day it dies on me, since none of the current BD (4k) players have any inputs.
I looked around alot last week, and the ONLY BR players I could find with analog outs were the Panasonic DP-UB820 and the Sony UBP-X1100ES. Panny has HDMI, optical and analog outs. Sony has HDMI, coaxial, optical and analog, so a bit more complete. Neither near the quality of the OPPO, I'd bet. Used Oppo's are stratospheric now. I think I'll get the Sony if it ever is available again, should cover all the bases for me, but my HT setup will be minimal.
I got on the list for the final Oppo units and got a email offer to buy the the 205. I passed. BIG MISTAKE!
I wound up buying the Sony. It's been fine except it won't play my HDTT CD's. I contacted Sony and they said, "Maybe some day we'll update to read them".
And I guess the days of new universal players is dead.
