Blu-ray player with 7.1 analog outs


Can anyone recommend a new Blu-ray player with 7.1 analog output? I have an older AVR without HDMI inputs. I would love a new AVR but I am willing to consider the analog inputs of my AVR.

There are, also, nice little boxes from Monoprice, Atlona, Gefen and others that will split off 7.1 audio from an HDMI source. Let's you use any BR player.

Hello,
That definitely opens up many options including the PS3 Slim. The OPPO BDP Players also offer Analog Outputs and really are great as well. A bit more expensive than the Panasonic, but OPPO's boast stellar Resale Value and offer SACD, DVD-A, Netflix, and more.
Cheers,
JJ

What are these boxes called? CAn you provide a link? Can you use yellow composite video cables from the blu-ray player or must they be RCA/audio cables?

I had a BD65 but didn't like the menus. I wish Sony still made players with multichannel outs. I like their menu screens.

Any opinions on the Samsung or Toshiba players with Multichannel outs?

Hello,
Samsung seems to be making BDP's that many people are happy with and offer a great number of Features. Toshiba is relatively new to Blu-Ray as they were the driving force behind HD-DVD and lost the Format War.

This was a Format War that grew so heated that on another Website, Death Threats were made, the entire HD Forums were temporarily shut down due to the level of animosity and so forth. Point being, Toshiba took a long long time before releasing a BDP.

I quite like the Company and would be confident that they make a quality BDP. However, I have never used or seen one personally.
Cheers,
JJ

2. ??? You need HDMI from player to the box.

You could use a composite cable as they are RCA but I would get some good quality well shielded cables, and you do not have to spend a fortune on them either.
