Multi region blu ray player
English

Thinking of getting a multi region blu ray player that will play all region blu rays as well as DVDs, but I can only find this website online that is uk based

http://www.mrmdvd.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=159

Can any one suggest a different website? Might buy a cheap one from the use and pay the import tax?

What's wrong with mrmdvd? You get UK warranty as well.

Nothing's wrong, it's just a little expensive. 

From richersounds I can get the Sony s5200 for £100, £110 with DVD multi region, but at mrdvd for multi region blu ray it's £250. £150 more expensive. Just wondered about being able to get it cheaper

cheers

If you phone up and say its much cheaper at another shop, they do knock money off.  Worth a try.

They knocked money off for me.   ;). £20.   Ask for more though.

To make a player multiregion for DVDs, all they need to do is enter a software code. But to make the player multizone for blu rays, it needs a hardware modification and so will be significantly more expensive. Given the price difference, you have to question the need for it. Most blu rays are region free in any case, or are available in zone B format.

Yep, tell them how much cheaper they are elsewhere and they should be able to do something.

RE: Multi region blu ray player

I ordered a multi region 6200 from Richer Sounds. It was only priced £10 more than the local region item, so they didn't bother with the premium.  It pays to build up a relationship with the dealers - not just in terms of money, the advice and open discussion is worth the effort.

Panasonic TX55AS802B, Sony STR-DN1040, Sony BDP-S6200, V HD box, Dali 1 5.1, Audioquest FLX SLiP speaker cable, Audioquest Pearl HDMI, Atlas Element Integra subwoofer cable, Cambridge optical and coax digital interconnects

As explained, multiregion for DVDs only costs £10 or so. Multiregion for blu rays is a lot more expensive as it requires a hardware mod. The players at Richer Sounds is multiregion for DVDs only.
