blu ray player that does dvd-audio
« on: January 19, 2011, 08:47:55 AM »
I guess it's time to get a blu ray player, but I would like something that will also play dvd-audio discs and that will output 24/96 stereo over the spdif out.  what are the best options?

i'll be replacing an arcam dv27a...will be sad to see it go

The Oppo players are fairly popular. I understand they are a very good value.

I'll second that, our new Oppo 93 Blu-Ray player is real sweet, streams Netflix similar GUI as Roku and plays everything including; SACD, HDCD, DVD-Audio/Video, Blu-ray3D, FLAC & even low tech MP3 discs and Video CD's.  Doesn't stream LMA though, but who knows maybe with a firmware update down the line.

Check it out if you are in the market for a disc player now...

does it pass 24/96 over spdif from dvd-a?

My arcam is still a winner over the analog outputs...

We just got it 2 weeks ago and are using the multichannel analog outputs to a Sunfire pre pro, also HDMI directly to the set.  It has replaced our Pioneer Elite DV47A universal DVD/CD/SACD player.

The manual is posted online.  --->  http://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-93/blu-ray-BDP-93-Support.aspx

from the manual:

Quote
Due to copyright restrictions and bandwidth limitations, full resolution audio from DVDAudio
discs cannot be sent through the coaxial or optical digital audio output. To listen
to DVD-Audio in full resolution, please use the HDMI or analog audio connections.

I wonder if that applies to just multichannel dvd-audio

^^^Great^^^

I had e-mailed them about adding LMA streaming like available with Roku. They responded that they were passing the request on to those that may be able to make it happen. The BDP93 was only just released for public sale starting late December.

A BDP95 will be released later if you need more than the 93.

I've looked into the Oppo BDP 93 and it does look pretty good.  For $500 at Amazon (maybe cheaper elsewhere) it seems like a good deal given it's quality and feature set.  Definitely need a player than can play all my SACDs now that my first gen PS3 is toast and my new PS3 slim can't.  It looks nice too, better than most of the models from the big manufacturers.

Right but it you can also hook up external hard drives directly to the Oppo (via eSATA or USB) so no need for discs.
Music can at the least least explain you and at the most expand you

Looks like the BDP-95 is going to retail for $999

Pretty damn pricey considering the next model down (BDP-93) is half that.

the 95 is a 93 with upgraded analog.  it has dedicated stereo outs (rca or analog) and upgraded dacs on each channel. 

if you use spdif or hdmi for audio, the 95 will give you no benefit

but if you plan on using the analog outs, the 95 will be a nice upgrade over the 93

I understand that its an upgrade on multiple components and i'm sure the price is warranted for whats in there.  Just a bit of a surprise of the price difference between the 93 and 95.
