Looks like I should wait a few months to pick up a new receiver, when these new -6 models come out, all the -5s will get cheaper.

I doubt we will see the 886 until Fall. And if it is really just like the 875 specs I wonder what difference it will bring to the table...

As for the Blu ray player I just hope they support it a lot better than the HD DVD unit...

Details of the new machine are sketchy, to say the least, but it looks like the first Onkyo BD offering will be a Profile 1.1 player.

Profile 1.1? What is this junk? No higher end manufacturer wants to release a complete product? Pioneer, Denon and now Onkyo are joining in the great fleecing of consumers. I'm glad Yamaha, Rotel, Cambridge Audio, Lexicon, Meridian, Classe, etc. are at least taking their time to hopefully introduce (expensive) players that are complete out of the box.

Profile 1.1 is the "Final" standard profile...BD Live is not required so not sure how this is "fleecing of consumers"

I suspect just more HDMI inputs and Audyssey Dynamic EQ and THX Loudness or whatever....otherwise I doubt there will be much to gain.

I bet they mean the same specs as the 876. Anyway, I will still "play" with one...

Didn't Sony just announce that ALL their BDs will have BD-Live content? So, great, every disc with have stuff that does not owrk on these "final" players. They don't sound to "final" to me.

Also, this Onkyo playe is bad news. When they released one for HD DVD it totally jinxed them. Some say HD DVD would still be around if it wasn't for the Onkyo/HDM jinx.

On a serious note, I would like one of these to go with my new 606.

The only people being fleeced are those who guzzled the Kool Aid and think they need Profile 2.0....

Maybe Onkyo's own player will actually be able to lip sync properly with its receivers when bitstreaming. That remains to be seen.

Here's a picture of the Integra. I'm sure the Onkyo will look very similar.

Profile 2.0 is not complete. It does not contain support for the upcoming (2010 at the latest) Blu-ray full color 3-D standard. Therefore, what you regard as a "complete" player today will be very much outdated and unable to play the 3-D versions of certain discs in less than 2 years.

So, don't fool yourself into thinking you are buying "future proof" or a "complete product" by getting a 2.0 player. Simply buy what best meets your needs. Right now, I'd take a top quality a/v 1.1 player over a medium quality 2.0 player. The 2.0 features are a joke thus far and 2.0 isn't the final blu-ray standard, anyway.

Vote with your wallet. Don't buy Cinavia-infected Blu-ray Discs! Why pay a premium for pseudo-lossless audio damaged by an intrusive watermark in the audible spectrum?

Best assessment I have heard yet.

After having witnessed the mugging of a snail by a fellow snail, the investigating officer asked the DMP-BD30 what happened to which the BD player replied "I don't remember...it happened so fast."

I wonder what BD player this is? I heard someone mention the button layout of the funai. I hope this isn't a Funai rebadge. That would be bad. VERY bad.

I am interested in an Integra Blu-Ray player to go with my DHC-8.8 HDDVD player, but I think I would have to pass if it is a Funai. The XA2 based 8.8 is a quality HD player, and I would really expect the same from Integra for Blu...

From what I've heard it's a Panny rebadge just like the Marantz 7003 and Denon 1800. The button lay-out is exactly the same, they're the same sizes and they all have a card reader at the exact same position. These players will probably only be different softwarewise

Hey Mitch,

Any more info about the potential Panny connection?

I'm actually looking at the Panny 35, but correct me if I'm wrong--these players don't look that much alike.

Any comments on the potential PQ and AQ of the Onkyo BR player?

Thanks.

Now THAT, if it is based on the new BD55, wouldn't be so bad!

The players don't look much alike, but the layout for the Denon 1800, Marantz 7003 and Onkyo 606 is identical. They all have their own design, but the inside is all Panny from what I've heard.

I have no idea on how the PQ and AQ of the Onkyo will be, but considering Panasonic BD players have excellent BD PQ, I have no doubt they will be top notch! However, it all depends on how they turn out softwarewise.
