I'm sorry if I'm covering old ground, but I'm looking to buy a new Blu-ray player to go with my new Tv. I've ordered a Sony 46HX903 and I am looking for the best picture and sound on a budget. The one problem I've got is my amp. Its a Denon 1909 connected to a set of Q Acoustics QAV speakers. Both of which I still like. This uses HDMI 1.3 switching, so no 3D pass through. Although I'm not totally sold on 3D, I'm looking to future proof myself as much as possible so I was looking at a 3D Blu-ray player.
Question 1. Is the new Panasonic BDT300 Blu-ray the only player with a second HDMI output, so enablling me to get HD audio with switching to analog?
Question 2. If this is the only one with two outputs, would it work OK with the Sony 3D TV?
Question 3. Is there any other options I should consider? I only have a small budget of around £500 for the moment.
The retailer who's sold me my TV is also offering me a Sony 570 Blu-ray player with 3D transmitter and four pairs of glasses for £579. Is this the best deal I'm likely to get?
