I am currently using my PS3 for playing standard dvds. I recently got a Denon 1909 receiver that handles the new lossless tracks but just realized that my 360 HD-DVD add-on does not support these.
I was thinking about picking up a A35 or XA2 to replace it but then started thinking about just getting a combo player and dumping the PS3. I see there is a Samsung and LG combo players that are getting good reviews but haven't seen a definitive answer to which one upconverts standard dvds the best between all of these specific players. I have read that the PS3 is the best BD player but if the combo players are comparable and do everything I need, I don't mind ditching it since I use my 360 for gaming.
So...PS3, A35, XA2, UP5000, or BH200?
I know many ask what kind of set-up you have to help determine what is right for you. I am using a new Samsung 67" DLP with a Denon 1909 receiver & 7.1 set-up thru HDMI.
By the way, I did a search and only found where only a couple of the above players were compared against the other but not all at once. If there is such a thread, please direct me to it and I apologize for missing it. Thanks for your help and opinions.
