Default Re: Marantz to Debut New BD8002 Blu-ray Player at CES

While it is completely possible that both Denon and Marantz might share the same internal hardware. The two players will not have the same external chassis, nether player will look anything like the other. I am currently planning on purchasing the Denon DVD-2500 BTci but I may consider the Marantz if I decide to upgrade further to the Denon DVD-3800 BDci? Sounds like the Marantz would be a nice edition to my HT depending on finances this year?

My future upgrade configuration:
Denon AVR-3808ci 7.1 Receiver (Decided against Onkyo, Sony or Sherwood Newcastle)
Denon DVD-2500 BTCI Blu-ray (Purchase pending)
Toshiba HD-A35 HD-DVD Player ??? Unless Denon or Marantz build one soon ??

I did not see anything about if the Marantz would bitstream Dolby and DTS lossless to an external receiver. I would love to hear more about the Marantz Blu-ray player as soon as there is more information from CES available.
