both over hdmi and via balanced XLR with my denon avp. very nice !
some feedback though perhaps will be listened to for forth coming improvements. this is only since limited use keep in mind.
1. XLR balanced connectors, these are mounted upside down on the back of the 95 ! means the locking levers on the cables end up upside down. makes awkward in connecting up and disconnecting. and also is very non standard !
2. The eject button on the front panel of the machine needs to be illuminated ! all other buttons on the front panel are illuminated why isnt the eject button. makes hard to find the button in low night especially since it is the one button most likely used on the front of the player.
3. because of the centre mount drive and low profile case of the player. the display has ended up on the side. squeezed between the power button and the disc drawer. perhaps consider moving the display under the disc draw. eg on the sony 5000es and denon 4010. display will then be a lot easier to read on the oppo then like on these other players. perhaps look at changing the way HR:Min:sec is displayed as elapsed time so easier read
4. Make sure logitech updates the harmony 1100i database for the bdp-95 player. even though its listed on the data base. if you select the player all functionality is greyed out. have to select the 93 player.
otherwise this is a very nice player overall. and very happy with it in use and its result
just to add to my previous feedback, and additional point as per below :
found something a little oddish on the 95,
you switch it on, open the disc draw, put a disc in but till the 'open tray' icon pops up on screen you cant close the disc tray, can jab the button as many times as like.
overall the 95 is a bit mroe sluggish doing something or the other at start up and shut down I do think vs the 5000es and the denon 4010 I had before that were a little more quick and snappy on start up and shut down. nothing major just a something a little niggly.
