I currently use my PC to play Blu-ray (BD) and DVD. I have a Cyrus CD player. Other kit listed in signature.
As the AVR is quite old the PC currently handles audio decoding and I use the multi channel inputs on the Denon. I need to buy new software for the PC to play some newer BD discs. I have also been thinking of buying a Quad 67 CD player to replace the Cyrus as I have liked the change the Quad amps have made from Cyrus amps and hope that their CD players will also sound really good.
So I'm thinking of getting a dedicated BD player to do everything.
Would a dedicated BD player do a better job than my PC?
Would a highish end BD player like the Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD do the job and be a reasonable replacement for the Cyrus? I say replacement as I would sell the Cyrus CD7Q and PSX-R to partially fund the BD player.
Instead I could just buy new software for the PC and try the Quad 67 CD player.
So, should I get an all rounder BD player to do everything or would I miss a dedicated CD player?
