And audio question: I know that blu ray audio can be transferred as bitstream but what about CD audio? I am going to use blu ray player also to play CDs. Can any bluray player bitstream CD/SACD/DVD-Audio?
Thank you very much.
I will answer myself: I found Denon DBP-1611 for around $400 in Central Europe (where I am). It plays every disc, has no streaming options (only youtube) and is insanely expensive in comparation to that all it has to do is just "nothing" - just read and bitstream.... Also Marantz 5005 has the same functionality (as it is IMHO nearly the same player) and is even more expensive.
Pioneer BDP-320 has also Source direct, however it is quite obsolete and full of problems (according to owners thread).
And of course all the OPPOs with price tag even higher than Marantz.
Sad that neither Onkyo nor Yamaha nor anybody else offers any alternative...
I am wondering that nobody has filled this space in market (cheaper quality BD transport player) yet...
