I am looking to buy a player to play Blu-ray discs, SACDs, DVD-Audio discs. I am going to bitstream all audio/video into my reciever(Yamaha RX-A3000) therefor DACs on BD player will not be used. I have a dedicated DVD player running into dedicated VP(Crystalio II) so I don't need sophisticated video circuitry(i.e abt,hqv,qdeo etc..) I don't stream music or films and don't care for 3D at the moment.

I have these options, I have access to dealer/mfg pricing on these.

Pioneer BDP-52FD
Pioneer BDP-53FD

Denon BDP-1611UD
Denon BDP-2012UD

Marantz UD5005
Marantz UD7006

I am assuming Blu-ray 1080p24fps output on all of these should be equal. I have a few HDCD discs, I wonder if anyone of these will play HDCDs in HDCD? Please help me out with your opinions

I would recommend this thread for research or to bump for additional questions/information:

Or repost in our "help me chose a BR player" sticky
