McIntosh joins the Blu-ray race with their universal Blu-ray player, the MVP881BR.


The MVP881BR also features:

* BD-Live Profile 2.0 support
* On-board audio decoders for DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD
* Multichannel analog outputs
* Custom linear power supply
* Fully balanced 2-channel audio design
* 32-bit/192kHz DACs
* 1080p/24 and 60 frame output
* Backlit, learning IR remote



I think this thing is going to set the record for most expensive Blu-ray player.

Obligatory "it won't look or sound any better than a $99 Funai if one uses HDMI."

Although I'm sure it will have first class analog output, image processing, and of course universal media support.

Great features for US BD player but the price is very expensive.I also want the review when it comes for comparison with the expensive BD player from Japan like Pioneer bdp-LX91,Denon DVD-A1UD,Marantz-UD9004.

It's very likely that they will use the Denon A1UD platform, as McIntosh (and Marantz) are under the same corporate umbrella. McIntosh already uses the same Denon transport in their top end SACD/CD player (the MCD500), so it makes sense for them to use it in their BD player as well. They will most likely add some of their own stuff inside like Marantz did (upgraded power supply etc.).

Hi
Mcintosh as far as i know doesn't has their own transports... Anyone knows the machine inside the new MVP881? Probably a "middle line" Denon....

Hello!
Are there any MVP881BR owner's here?
Our MVP881 does not output DTS HDMA 5.1 audio.
I connect MVP881 to Audio/Video Control Center McIntosh MX150 via HDMI-cable. When I set in BR-disk menu "Dolby Surround 5.1 mode", then MX150 shows me 5.1 "IN", and also 5.1 "OUT" audio signal. (On the front panel of MX150 are shone 6 lights on the left -IN signal, and 6 lights on the right - OUT signal). This mode works fine.
But when I set "DTS HDMA 5.1 audio" mode in BR-disk menu, the MX150 diagnoses only "stereo" audio input signal (on the front panel of MX150, on the left, light up only 2 indicators), and the indicator "HD AUDIO" in the middle of the front panel of MX150 is not shone. And I hear the stereo sound from the loudspeakers.
At the same time, if I plug another BR player to the MX150, also via HDMI cable (it is OPPO BR player), the DTS HDMA 5.1 audio is reproduced perfectly -I hear an excellent 5.1 sound! And I also see 6 "IN" indicators and 6 "OUT" indicators, and "HD AUDIO" indicator on the front panel MX150 shone.
In MVP881 (and also MX150) SETUP all options are set as "Manufacturer's Settings".
I am sure that this situation is not related to failures in the MVP881 - it is not broken!
I have a question to those who know: what should I do in the settings MVP881, or in settings MX150 to fix this problem?
(Local Mackintosh Dealer didn't refuse to solve this problem, but they have told to us that we should leave our MVP881 at them for 2 weeks! It's not an option!)
Second question:
The upgrade of this equipment (MVP881 and MX150) was not made. Local McIntosh Dealer assert that for the last years was not issued any updatings neither for video - nor for audio - equipment. It seems strange to us! In this time, most likely, there were many new codecs for BR players. We increasingly often began to meet BR disks which our MVP881 can not reproduce. Usually, in such cases, we see the message "No Disc". Other, disks are reproduced perfectly.
Is there upgrades for MVP881 and MX150 were issued (production date of both these devices - May 2010)? How can we upgrade our MVP881 and MX150?
Actually in the MVP881 menu there is a "Upgrade" item. We understant that the player MVP881 can itself do an upgrade via the Internet. But we strongly recommend not to do this because it is very unsafe: together with updatings many viruses can get to a player. And it have no any Antivirus!
Is it really so?
How can we upgrade the MVP881? And how we can upgrade MX150?

The MVP881 can do DTS-HD MA, but I don't have one on hand anymore to look at the menu system to see what settings might need to be enabled. You should do firmware updates for it over the Internet, as there is NO risk for a virus, and it will allow you to playback discs that are giving you problems. There are no new Codecs that would be supported, as the Blu-ray specification hasn't changed to add any new ones, but there are discs that have updated copy protection that you would need to update your firmware to playback correctly.

I purchased this player and it is mind blowing, my brains pleasure center goes into an overload mode. I am experiencing a few issues like some disks will not play, for instance after the initial insert of Avatar I get a (NO DISK) in the front panel information display. I think it needs a firmware update but i'm not sure how to do this.

By the way I purchased this unit for 3000.00, by the way marital counseling cost are more than the unit. LOL

If your interested my system consists of

McIntosh MX120, McIntosh MVP881BR audio video player
(1) McIntosh MX120
(3) McIntosh MC501 amps
(2) B & W 802's
(1) B & W HTM2 Center speaker
(1) B & W DB1 sub
(1) Stewart UltraMatte 150, 120 in.
