RE: looking to purchase 3d blueray player.

I refuse to believe that LG will sell a player not supporting certain audio formats in different countries. DTS-HD MA & Dolby True HD have been around a few years. Even my 2009 Panasonic supports these formats. Your LG definitely supports the formats.

For blu ray pictures, I haven't found any difference between players at different price points.

To me, it appears as if you're looking for an excuse to buy a new player. Smile You can, by all means. But don't expect a jump in performance, especially when you're replacing one budget player with another. AV Forums says this in every review of blu ray players:

"As is always the case, every player should be able to output the content on a Blu-ray disc equally as well over HDMI because it is a digital signal." And,

"As with the 3D performance, the digital nature of a Blu-ray means that any player capable of outputting 1080p24 should be identical to any other when using the HDMI output."

RE: looking to purchase 3d blueray player.

Sir,

I dont live in the uk.Also just to clarify i didnt already own the LG player ,got it ordered from amazon and as soon as it was delivered we noticed that the DTS-HD MA logo was missing it only shows dts 2.0 +digital out logo.Furthermore I called LG UK and the gentleman after consulting with his technical dept confirmed to me that'' the player only decodes DTS HD and would not decode DTS HD MA''. I also went on further and asked if they had any LG player which had DTD HD-MA and the response was,,,,,,''sorry sir there is none at the moment ''

 

Now,

 

Either I am lying or the guy at LG UK was unknowingly giving wrong info.

 

Also lg bp 325w is not available on amazon uk  whats available is bp 325..u can confirm this from the net...unless my net is diffrent  Wink

 

so...on seeing that no dts hd ma logo on the product and on further confirmng with the manufacturer we decieded to return it and look for  another player and thus all these conversations which i must admit have been quite educational.

 

Gel thanks for your input too but i already ordered the 150...will let you all know on how it fits in after we recieve it in a couple of weeks.

Yes, Amazon UK has BP325 and not BP325W, and according to the info, it supports DTS-HD MA:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-BP325-Blu-ray-player-WARRANTY/dp/B00D4DVC6Q

The LG rep hasn't given the right information.

It's LG's loss for giving you the wrong information, not yours.  Smile
