BDP1650 vs. BDP3600

by JoshvdH / November 30, 2009 8:43 PM PST


I'm planning to get myself a BluRay player.
Came across the 1650 and 3600.
The difference between those, as far as I could find, is the 7.1 analog audio out, DLNA for streaming and WLAN included. All features of the 3600. Or are there more differences between the 2 players?

I also want to buy me a Surround receiver (Harman Kardon, probably AVR255 with HKTS11).
What I want to know is when I connect one of the blurayplayers with HDMI to my TV (LE32A656) and optical cable from the blurayplayer to the Harman Kardon. Does this optical cable support the surround and does the DBP3600 optical support the 7.1 surround or is the only possibility for 7.1 surround by using the analog tulp ports on the back of the 3600?
The 1650 probably doesnt even support 7.1 or does it using optical?

Second question:
Is there an optional wireless dongle available for the 1650 for WLAN?

Third question:
Do both bdplayers support Anynet? My TV does support it.

JoshvdH -

I'm not familiar with the BD-P1650, as that's not a U.S. product.

As for the BD-P3600, the optical can't handle 7.1, but HDMI directly into the receiver can, as well as the analog out. By model number deductions, I don't believe the BD-P1650 will do 7.1 at all.

If one is available, it would be the model number WIS09ABGN. I'm not sure where that part is distributed worldwide, so you may want to check if that part is available in your area. You can also call Samsung Customer Service and ask for your regional parts department.

Both players will support Anynet+.
