Any ideas on a slot-load multi-format blu ray player?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to get a slot-load multi-format blu ray player for my tv. I don't want to use a PS4 or an Xbox since it will need a separate controller, I'd prefer to stick to using my tv remote. Slot-load is important for me for aesthetic reasons, to place it vertical behind the mounted tv. 

 

Thanks.

Can't think of one but a cheap secondhand PS3 with the harmony remote adapter might fill the bill.  What remote are you using at the moment?  The other option might be a slim HTPC with a Windows Media Center remote reciever.

 

Hope that helps...

I'm going to be using BeoVision's  BeoRemote One. I've looked into the harmony remote adapter and I believe that only works for harmony remotes so it wouldn't be appropriate?

 

I was thinking of using a computer's load slot which i believe is the concept for the htpc option you mentioned? Any good sites you know of on how to build one? And do you think I'd be able to integrate it to use with the BeoRemote One?

      Item:  Cary 303/200 HDCD/CD Player 230vac
      Location: Gosford Nsw 
      Price:  $1175.00
      Item Condition: Good
      Reason for selling: Retiring audiophile
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal plus fees COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This player has been highly modified by our own George Stantcheff  with the addition of triple stacked AD844 as I/V, as per the thread here on DIY Audio - http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/227677-using-ad844-20.html
       
      "Couple of days ago we compared my Cary 303/200 using just the I/V of the AD844, up against the Thorsten Losetch designed AMR CD77 (TDA1541 double crown) that uses Thorsten's special designed I/V stage which I believe is tube based, output impedance <100ohms, so a good match with the Lightspeed as is the Cary. I was expecting the AMR to be better, just by it's reputation and the designer behind it.
      3 of us within 20sec thought the Cary was a clear winner, top to bottom, front to back and side to side, and it remained that way for the rest of the session, the owner of the AMR was mute and stone faced and said nothing for the 1.5hrs of A/Bing, and probably saddened by the result, the listening session which went for 4hrs, the last 2.5hrs was the Cary only.
      The system was my Lightspeed Attenuator feeding 2 x Halcro DM-78 monoblocks (input impedance 100kohms) pushing a pair of Wilson Watt puppy 8's
      This proved what I've been hearing that this AD844 as an I/V is something very, very special when used as I've done with no feedback"
       
      This player is as close to "State of the Art" (if there's any such thing) as I've heard under $20k.  Due to the mods, the balanced connectors no longer operate. 

      Only being sold due to the owner of the last several years retiring from the hobby.
       
      Complete with orig remote & manual. Will pack & ship worldwide at buyers cost.
