If you are on the lookout for a Blu-Ray player or might know of someone interested in getting one, JB Hi-Fi has the Panasonic BD-60 on sale for $366 in the latest flyer. Pretty good price.

Just buy a Philips BDP3000 blu-ray player from DSE, now $277.

Cheap enough ,  Review..

"More evidence of cost-cutting is found in the list of supported audio formats. The BDP3000 can decode 7.1-channel Dolby TrueHD soundtracks and output them as PCM from the HDMI output, but it can't do the same with DTS HD Master Audio. But all is not lost because you can still transfer the raw DTS HD MA bitstream to your receiver."

I feel slightly ripped off... bought a BD-60 yesterday for work from Retrovision. They were good enough to discount it to $400. Actually that's still a great deal as Harveys would only drop it to $460. And we don't have JB's here in AshVegas anyway.

Reading the reviews the BD-60 has an impressive set of features and Panasonic seems to have a very good reputation with their Blu-Ray players. Maybe it's time to invest in one for home...

I just bought the BD-80 for 599 and Norman Ross (alias for Harvey Norman?)

This has a number of bells and whistles the BD-60 lacks, the most significant being 7.1 analog outputs. This was perfect for connecting up to my older Yamaha receiver (RX-V 1500) thus allowing me to get HD audio.

Other features include High Clarity Sound where the analog video circuitry can be shut down in order to reduce potential inteference with the audio processing.
