Re: Returned HD-DVD player. What should I buy? PS3?
At this moment I'd suggest the PS3 if you need to get one now. It's not futureproof but the most future proof player out there. It can decode TruHD to PCM, but won't do DTS-MA till a later firmware update (most likely not till you see it in standalone players) and also upgradeable to Profile 2.0.
But for a standalone, I'd recommend a Panasonic BD-30 if you have a receiver or prepro that can decode TruHD and DTS-MA, otherwise it would be better off waiting for the Panasonic BD-50 which at the moment sounds like the best upcoming player.
