HD A20 upconvert vs. lower cost BD players

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently use the HD A20 to watch SD DVD's, but would like to purchase an inexpensive BD player for blu rays and SD DVD's and save the HD A20 for my HD DVD collection.

What low cost BD player will match my HD A20 for SD DVD playback? I would like to go with a Sony player to avoid HDMI issues with my Sony DG810 Receiver and Panny PZ700U.

Go for it. The A20 is nothing "special" for SD upconverting.

Yeah.. Most of the latest BD players will consistantly exceed an A20 for SD-DVD play back in my opinion.

Dont know if you can get one, but my philis BD3000 is an excellent player.

Fast startup times, fast loaduptimes (not many seconds for POTC), smal, region free for DVD, and movable subtitles for 2.35:1 screens.

I havnt really explored the audio options yet, so im not sure how it handle DTS-HD MA. I think it can only decode 2 channels, but bitream it. I have to test that first.

As for upscaling, DVD is DVD, you cant really do so much in that area. Most players would be fine.
