I would like the 400 disk unit Sony has in the US.

hmm, just going by the model number "BDP-S1700ES" and price, i would guess this will be more along the lines of a BDP-S1000ES successor in terms of build etc, rather than the BDP-S5000ES, so a more entry level model. as such, i think its pretty likely we will see it hit our shores.

good to see SACD back in as well.

Any word on whether it is 1 x HDMI (1.4) output or 2 x HDMI out's like the Panasonic 3D BR player ? (for those with 1.3 HDMI receiver & still want HD sound) If not wonder if it will have 8 analogue outs ?

The matching avrs have 3d passthrough so my guess is 1x1.4 ;) Looks like theyve dropped the bit mapping and maybe the other processing ? Its a very narrow box so analog outs may not make it :huh:

If it's got on board decoding I would assume it would have analogue outs. Or is that wrong? :huh:

No, not necessarily. Decoding was also done in players to PCM for those AVR's that could not decode them but could take PCM 5.1 over HDMI , ala HDMI 1.0 units.

This model is the same as the BDP-S770 being sold in Europe, gone have the days of having nice aluminum front panels now all just cheap plastic.

Am seriously considering the BDP-CX7000ES @ A$2000 and comes region free for Bluray and DVD

BDP-S770 Manual

looks like the S770 will be released here later in the year.

Well there you go, learn something new every day !!

When you say was, are you implying this isn't the case these days?

Most reasonable price avrs these days have lossless decoding so can be sent the bitstream instead of the player decoding to send lpcm as Bryan says to older non hdmi 1.3 avrs ;) They save the cost of the d/a conversion without the analog outs [if they have]

edit ; no multi outs

Analog Audio Output(s)

: 2 Channel: 1 (Rear)

It's great that H/W manufactures are supporting the format, but there is stuff all mainstream releases coming out. It would be nice if the music companies gave it another crack (or at leaset re-released their current catalogues) considering the increased user / install base and better understanding of the general public since blu-ray has come out
