Is HD Audio worth extra £££££
Finally there is a blu-ray player with multichannel analogue outputs that is close to the very top of my price range £200 ...the panasonic DMP BDT500. I have an aged AV receiver and my old sony blu-ray player BDPs550 is refusing to play yet more and more of my BDs. [I have tried various options to fix it and nothing seems to work. I refuse to risk £55 for Sony to look at it and tell me it'll cost £XX more to fix it. Anyway I digress]
So, in forum members view is it worth me paying close to £260 (cheapest I've found online so far) to get HD audio or should I just pay £150 for a good Bluray player but I'd be limited to old fashioned DD or DTS. Decisions Decisions.
I only have the Jamo style package speakers A102HCS5 but I've convinced myself that I can hear the difference when playing a BD disc (when I can get one to work).
I know most responses are likely to be only you can decide, but what would you do??? Do I scrimp and save and wait another couple of months to get a new player or buy one asap and even splash out on a few new BDs - been waiting for LOTR extended edition to drop in price but no sign of that happening
I have an old-ish Panny 37PX80 (720p) so not sure I'll notice any improvement in picture quality over the sony - or am I mistaken?
Thanks for all IMHOs given
