Hi. I currently have a Sony PS3 which I also use as a Blu-ray player. I have the opportunity to purchase a Panasonic DMP-BD60 for only 60 bucks. It is only 2 months old and has been used maybe 5 times.


What do people think of the BD60 vs the ps3? 60 bucks is such a good deal that I am highly considering this.


My other components include a Samsung LN52B750, Denon AVR-4308ci, as well as a 5.1 surround system. (Klipsch RF-7s, RB-75s, and AV123 MFW-15)


I have an original 60gb PS3 so I realize that it does not pass True-HD and DTS-Master Audio bitstream, but PCM should give the same sound. Or am I wrong?


What are the advantages between these two players?


Thanks

Your biggest advantage would be saving the wear and tear on your ps3. You won't tell a lick of a difference between the two for playing blu rays and I doubt you would see any benefit from standard def dvd either. You WILL get to see your pretty Tru-HD and DTS-MA lights go on your Denon but you will NOT hear a difference between bitstreaming the high def audio or using the ps3 via decoded LPCM.

And the number one reason to get the Panny.....No more crappy blue tooth remote!(or ps3 controller) You can then use a real universal remote. Of course you could do the same with the ps3 if you bought a harmony adapter, but that costs almost as much as the panny you are considering.

If it were me, I would buy it just to save the wear and tear (as well as the energy savings) on your ps3....

Best,

Chris

Thanks for the reply. I think I will probably go ahead with this. Does anyone else have any thoughts?
