This is cool actually, did'nt realize there was a category for surround recording as well. It can only be a good thing for the future of hi-resolution multi-channel product market. I wonder of the major labels had some influence on the creation of this categroy (ie. Sony, etc.,...)?
I forget, does the BDP-93 decode FLAC streaming?
yeah, the Oppo BDP-105 definitely has it's advantages, the number of features stands out (high performance video + multiple audio formats + discrete DAC). On the other hand the Sony SVCD-XA5400ES implements a type of up-sampling for CD's.
Just curious if anyone on here has used the GXW15 or Silver W12 subwoofers, and how they may compare to more popular specialty subwoofer brands (like Velodyne, REL, or maybe JL Audio), performance and price?

yes, I have like 4 WD MyBookLive drives (1TB & 2TB), they work beautiful for streaming media files
yeah, I have an extensive CD, SACD, DVD-A, HDCD collection. Also significant size DVD and BluRay collection. Hence the purpose for aquiring the BDP-05. But I like having two players to experiment with, and as a way of "balancing" usage. I will probably use the SCD-XA5400ES for analog CD's and 2ch SACD moreso (and occasionally multi-channel SACD's via-HDMI).
