I'm constantly switching out things between two systems, one main one in my living room and my older "backups" for (very rare) bedroom use.Hmmm.... How about letting people know what gear you have by creating a signature?
Found a new one on Amazon for $278, hmm, so what if I don't get the latest Chipmunks deluxe box in Dolby Atmos with ceramic peanuts, it's free shipping with Prime. Sold!I can certainly relate to that!
In my opinion, the UBP-X800M2 is a bargain. Best Buy sells them for around $300 (new) and if you go their website, you can often find open-box models for very attractive discounts.
What are the X800M2 capabilities for USB playback? I'm looking for gapless playback of FLACs in stereo, 4.0 (correctly output) and 5.1 to PCM over HDMI. Also I'd like to play MP3s though I have other options there.In my opinion, the UBP-X800M2 is a bargain.

This is what I do. Older hmdi based Oppo for ancient formats, like HDCD, picky burned discs, or surround dolby CDs, and the Sony player for the 99% of the remaining discs.If I can get to the end of the year without the new Dolby Atmos blu ray music releases not bankrupting me, I may go for the UBP-X800M2 to
parallel with the Oppo on my main system, and to save wear on the latter as a future backup.
Played a DTS CD. (Venus & Mars) Sony UBP-X800M2Hi all, trying to determine if there are any current disc players out there that are compatible with the DTS CDs from the early 2000s? Would prefer to be able to buy something new, but also open to being pointed in the direction of good secondhand options.
And if possible, I figure while I’m at it, I may as well try to find something that can also play the DVD-A layer of DVD-Audio discs, and multichannel SACDs. Compatibility with all three formats would be fantastic, but the DTS CD is my first priority, followed by DVD-A, and SACD last.
Forgot to mention, my current setup is a smart TV plus a 5.1 soundbar system (with satellite speakers) which seems to be compatible with just about every format out there (Atmos, DTS:X, Dolby, etc), so I’d like something that won’t necessitate a separate A/V receiver.
