Thanks Phil. Seemingly like all other "giant killer" DVD players, the Marantz DV9600 came out about 10 years ago, in 2005. I'm thinking that the move of most audiophiles to servers since that time has killed audio manufacturers' interest in building high quality disc spinners, especially those of the Blu-ray sort.
Thanks for your suggestions Phil, much appreciated!
I recently upgraded to a Yggdrasil DAC and am using a pretty lightweight Sony Blu-Ray (BDP S590) as my transport. I'm sure I'm not alone in really enjoying being able to play concert DVDs and movies through my system in addition to CDs. Some are of the definite opinion that that the quality of the transport can make a huge difference to the sound quality, so I may not be hearing the full potential of my new DAC using the Sony. Does anyone have a suggestion for a Blu-Ray player that would be considered a high quality transport? Some will likely suggest Oppos but mine broke down after 3 years and the cheap Sony sounds every bit as good. In "Googling" the question I've seen lots of responses, but mostly from 10 years or so ago, where an industrial player like the Pioneer DVD D7400 was considered a giant killer transport. Is there a more modern equivalent?Thanks so much for any thoughts you may be able to share!
PS Audio Memory Player. Used ones going from $1,000-$1,200. A bit more than basic transports but a marvelous transport.
