A/V Receiver - Blu-ray Compatibility

Hi all Shocked),

Looking at the Panasonic DMP-BD30K Blu-ray player & noticed it has great reviews and the 1.1 profile. I'm also looking at the Denon AVR-3808CI for an A/V receiver. I have no idea if the Denon is profile 1.1 compatible. Can someone enlighten me please. If it's not compatible, could you recommend an A/V receiver that is.

Thank you so much,

receivers do not have to be compatible

with any profile. That receiver will work just fine. If you are considering the BD-30, I strongly recommend just waiting a bit and buying the BD-50. They are more the same than different, but profile 2.0 (something I could care less about, but why not...), and hopefully less bugs, such as LFE cut, or possible audio dropouts when combining 24fps video output+ bitstreamed hi-def codecs. If you have to buy one TODAY, the BD-30 gets a personal nod from me.

I think the price is supposed to be similar.

Thank you VERY much for your wise & prompt insight in this matter "jostenmeat". Thanks as well about the heads up regarding the upcoming "50" series model by Panasonic.

thanks for your politeness, and come back anytime. I just watched the CNET video review/preview on it and it looks like it can double as a multi-player video game machine, LOL... I guess they do have some ps3 envy? haha

Should come out pretty soon. Maybe a month, maybe bit longer, is my guess....
