but why not go with the Samsung Blu-Ray player.
I'm far too many years behind in the quality audio gear, so can't comment on that.
A week ago I decided to get a Blu-ray player and got the LG on special, only to find when I got it home that it had a coax audio connector and my JVC surround sound has an optical one.
I also found the interface a bit basic and while it had a network connection to the internet, I couldn't find any way to connect to the pc.
Connecting to an external usb drive worked but the file menu was poor as it was all very large file icons and hard to read file names.
Fortunatly I was in time to get a refund as they didn't have a Samsung in stock.
I used the refund to go one of theior sister stores with the refund card and got the Samsung BD-C5500, while this is their basic model, it was a huge improvement over the LG.
Audio output matched, network with pc works great as well as the included internet applications.
The interface was a huge improvement, file icons for video actually displayed an image and were better organised.
Overall it was so much better that had I been able to view both before purchase in action, I would have gladly paid more for the Samsung.
I also have a Samsung tv, when I turn the Blu-ray off it switches itself back to tv.
Okay. I'm new to all of this so please forgive if this topic has been chewed over before. Can't seem to locate a search mode for forum topics--there are A LOT..and I'm quite a novice to A/V terms and features.
Here we go:
I have a Samsung 6300 LED TV. I am THINKING of purchasing an Onkyo HT-S7200 to complement it. I am looking for a Blu-Ray player to add to this future system.
To start, I have a few questions.
1) From what I can gather, the HT-S7200 will up-convert so would I need a BR player that can do this also??
2) I can't seem to locate ANY BR player that users don't tear apart in their reviews. Are there any out there worth their salt? If so, would any members here care to suggest a few that would go with the system I'm thinking of creating?
3) Are there any comments/suggestions regarding my choice of system components?
