After looking around at the pics, I clicked on one of the recorder models to find 14 more player/recorder models.
So I guess there are 22 total player and player recorders which is news to me.

Heres a link http://www.blu-ray.com/recorders/

You must work for the BR marketing department since you are on a 1-man mission to ensure BR's success (IMO, 1000 of your 1974 posts seem to be regarding BR). (Only teasing you!)

Yep, I quit working for Onkyo about three months back, and got a job working for Blu Ray.
Hows Denon paying these days Bill ;) :) ?

If you read all my posts, you'll see that I really don't plug Denon over other brands (at the lower price range, I actually recommend Oppo or Panny over the Denon 1920). I just defend Denon against people like Auditor (does he ever have anything positive to way about anything other than CRTs?).

Sorry, don't want to sidetrack your thread, so I'll shut up now.

No worries Bill, it was 100% a joke and nothing more :)
I have lost most interest in sd dvd players at this point anyway, will never buy another sd dvd, and can't wait for hi res video/audio. :D .

Those players look awful IMHO, but it's not the chassis appearance that counts. Very 80's industrial design for premium products.

Now all we need is production hardware and street pricing. I'll assume that those are either prototype or preproduction units.

It says proto type were applicable, and the others have model numbers with the best looking being the Pioneer Elite, Sony, Sharp, Yamaha, Philips and LG player imo.

Nothing official no.
All these pics show is that the Sony up scales dvd to 1080p , and the Philips player has cd/dvd/sa-cd logos on it.

Theres also some dvd/blu ray discs in the media section.

I thought we knew that the Sony and Samsung had MSRPs of $1,000 and the Pioneer was at $1,800?

LOL, if they can't even get a basic website up they really are disorganized as mentioned in the other thread (DVD Pioneer Hansen to Open First Indie HD Blu-ray Disc Facilities. OTOH, that's probably not the official site, not that Blu-ray.com is either but I know its owner is up to speed so I give him props for that. ;)

I have heard both 1300.00 and around 1k for the Sony... but seen nothing official from Sony.

The Samsung says 999.00 at Circuit Citys site, but its not officially available to pre order, and I have seen no official specs for any of these players except the Pioneer pdf.

Teac is part of the Blu-Ray Disc Association (BDA), so they're at least interested.

True that, but I use http://www.hddvd.org/hddvd/ as the website for HD DVD info in the mean time. Can't wait for my PS3, baby.

With all the "when will there be a 500.00 Blu Ray player questions", which players are most likely to be 500.00 msrp or less first?

Panasonic, LG and Sharp are my guesses as the most likely Blu Ray players to start at 500.00 or less when they hit the market.

I am not all that interested in a recorder at this time, but anyone have any idea what premium these recorder /players will have?
