If you want a Blu-ray player capable of playing SACD and/or DVD-A through its multi-channel analog outputs, you're kind of limited to Oppo and Cambridge Audio (at a higher price point). Well, here's another choice....

Yamaha announces the new BD-A1010 universal player

Nice. Any idea what the Video chip is, or who it is made by? (Marvell?)

AtDaBeach 08-04-2011 04:05 PM

Got one on order.

Not shipped yet

Starting to wonder if it is even in stock yet.

probably a mediatek chip like the a1000 and 667.

AtDaBeach 08-08-2011 12:52 PM

I think so. Someone in the A1000 thread turned me on to it.

AtDaBeach 08-11-2011 06:04 AM

Should start shipping end of this week, beginning of next.

AtDaBeach 08-11-2011 10:38 AM

Just got another emailed update, the ship time is now in Sept, so Im cancelling.

The new pioneer elite is interesting.

TuenMuner 10-13-2011 05:06 PM

I believe A1010 is now in stock in US, I'm still waiting for one up here in Canada, although I don't think they're going to release it, so I'm planning to import one from US.

Did you guys buy one already?

I am interested in picking one up, but may get the Oppo 93 as I can't see if the Yamaha has any crossover settings for the analog 7.1 outs. I looked through their manual online and it doesn't say anything about it. If anybody owns one and can shed some light it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Has anyone seen reviews for this player? I can find spec sheets but no articles of it being tested or is this thing that new?

Thanks!

When HDMI Audio is set to PCM, while playing the multi-channel area of an SACD, is the sampling frequency 88.2 KHz or 176.4 KHz? I would prefer an answer from someone who has hands-on experience.

I may get one by next weekend, I will try to give you an update, Pioneer fan.

I am returning my new Pioneer Elite BDP-53FD because it has the potential of kidnapping my discs. As much as I love their PQLS, the change it provides isn't drastic enough to tolerate certain things. The Oppos either output DSD or PCM at 88.2 KHz. The Sonys have been said to output DSD or PCM at 176.4 KHz, but don't support DVD-AUDIO. The Yamaha BD-A1010 has been said to output DSD or PCM at 176.4 KHz, even though the official documentation doesn't give how SACD is decoded. B&H Photo Video has a holiday returns policy until January 18. I'm not sure when I'll be getting mine. I was getting conflicting reports on stock from the search results til placing the order. If I get mine first, I guess I'll be the guinniepig. If it says 88.2 on my receiver, I'll return it and try the Sony BDP-NS780. If the Sony says 88.2, then I'll return it and get the Oppo. Do I sound like I know what I'm doing?

That's proof enough for me. Can't wait!

The BD-A1010 is just a rebadged and cheaper BD-A1000.

Besides the extra HDMI output, what else is the BD-A1010 lacking in comparison to the BD-A1000?

???
Which extra HDMI output?
The BD-A1010 is lacking nothing.
It is a BD-A1000 named BD-A1010.

I believe I got that from hometheaterreviews.com. After checking the BD-A1000 manual, I guess they screwed up, huh? Then the only differences would be later firmware and iPhone compatibility. Then I don't have to worry about missing out on the BD-A1000. So far, I'm already happy with my decision.

Big C 11-29-2011 04:36 AM

If this player converts DSD to PCM at 176.4 KHz like the BD-A1000 did, it would beat the Oppo as a digital transport. Mine should arive today.

No.
The Yamahas have no "source direct". The OPPOs do.

glangford 11-29-2011 05:44 AM

One other advantage of the Oppo over the Yamaha is HDCD decoding. I don't see it as an option for the Yamaha. Not truly universal.I have a lot of HDCDs where I'd like to get the full 20 bit decoding.

Do you still connect your player analog to your AVR?
Otherwise a decoder in the player is useless.
I have also a lot of HDCDs and an AVR with integrated HDCD decoder, so...

Oh, by the way: Your link doesn't work.

glangford 11-29-2011 09:44 AM

I have a Denon 3311ci, so it doesn't have a HDCD decoder. I use hdmi from an oppo bdp-83, letting the Oppo decode.

Most AVRs do not have HDCD decoding, at least Denon. You have to get to their upper echelon AVRs for that feature. I also use the stereo analog outs to a headphone amp which also requires that the player do the decoding.

If you use a HDMI connection HDCDs won't be decoded in the player.
Again: You can hear decoded by the player only with analog connections.
