I'm trying to decide between the 2 players listed below. It will be used for about 70% Netflix streaming and 30% discs.

Thanks for any advice.

1) Sony BDP-6700

2) Samsung BD-J6300

Sony has discrete on/off, Samsung does not. That alone gives Sony my vote.

I never buy any devices that don't have discretes if I can help it. Makes remote macros 100% reliable. There is a workaround for Samsung, but it's not very elegant.

Looking for a $100 blu ray player for my non 4K 5.1.2 setup. Most important is good Netflix support. Is there a best brand or interface? Or are all bluray players basically the same at this point. Thanks.

I saw the Sony S6700 has been recommended by a few people. Will it play Atmos? I saw on amazon that the x800 will play atmos but the x6700 will not. Thanks

Sony S- series players do seem to have the best support for streaming services among players, but the dedicated streaming devices (like Roku) tend to be better.

*NO* blu-ray player plays Atmos. All disc players and streamers, including the various UHD players, have to be configured to "bitstream" soundtracks, i.e. do no processing on them whatsoever. Atmos, DTS:X and Auro3D soundtracks have to be sent untouched to a receiver or pre/pro for decoding.

Marantz SR7009 avr + MM9000 amp --> Atmos 7.1.4
Fronts=NHT 2.9+AC2, FH+TM=DefTech PM1000, LCR+TM amped

I ended up going with the Sony S6700. Seems to be one of the better non 4K blu ray players out there. Plus Amazon had it for a great price, $78. Hard to beat.

One thing to consider is that many new disks are only carrying the atmos soundtrack on UHD disks, not regular bluray.
