Looks like you need analog outputs based on your setup. If you decide to go with a used Oppo I suggest the 103 or 105, which will enable you to rip SACD’s too. Was definitely worth it for me. Regarding the lack of in-player display, can you connect a small HDMI-compatible TV or monitor? Much more info available to you, and necessary if you want to play most audio blu-ray titles.Bummer, looks like an Oppo is my only choice with the Sony not having a front display, still can't understand that.
P.S. - even though my Oppo has a small display, I can’t imagine using it without a TV attached. Menus, setup, usage would be a nightmare.
