I will be starting to purchase CDs at stores soon, and am wondering if sound will be better if I played them through the Blu-ray player (connected to an AV receiver) than if I were to connect an iPhone using USB, playing Apple Lossless files.

Is the sound chip in more expensive BD players more capable than an iPhone?

E.g. Cambridge Azur models are $799 and higher depending on the model, but from the reviews I have read, they used advanced video and sound technology to make it better than an entry level one from "LG".

What you get with higher priced players are better audio DACs. Of course, they are only relevant if you use analog audio outs.
