I am considering to purchase an used Panasonic DMP BD80 or BD80EG-K mainly to play Blu-Ray discs for its music (5.1 audio). For example Quadrophenia by the Who.
The Panasonic will be connected to a vintage quadraphonic amplifier that has 4 discrete inputs and four speakers. There is no sub woofer, there is no central speaker, just 2 front speakers and 2 rear speakers.
The manual that I found online says that you can switch off the center speaker, the Panasonic will compensate this by giving more low frequency sound to the 2 front speakers.
What about the center speaker?
Can this one be switched off too and will the Panasonic divide the sound of the center speaker over the 2 front speakers?
What is the difference between the Panasonic DMP BD80 and the BD80EG-K ?
If this Panasonic is not the right one for the application, which Blu-Ray player would you recommend to use in combination with a 4.0 amplifier?
Thank you in advance for your reply.
