Does anybody know if any of the other manufacturers have a plan to offer a stand alone unit with SACD ability? I know the PS3 can play SACD but it fails to meet my needs since it does not have 5.1 analog outputs.

So either I go with a PS3 and upgrade my processor to get to where I want to be

or

I buy a stand alone player for Blu-ray and use my Denon DVD for SACD but then I will be limited with 2 channel SACD due to the Blu-ray taking my 5.1 inputs on my processors.

I have gone back and forth trying to decide where to compromise and bought a PS3 over the weekend but returned it when I realized it was region 3 for DVDs. So I would rather purchase one from the US and have it region 1.

I really was hoping to get down to 1 player but it almost seems impossible to do, even more so now that I don't think there are any region free Blu-ray players for the DVD portion?

I have never feared multiple players. I find most all universal players make some compromise in one or more of the supported formats, so I would advocate seperates.

Yes, I do this and tolerate the cabling...

My main rigs currently runs a Sony BDP-S1, Toshiba HD-XA2, Teac Esoteric DV-50s (SACD/CD/DVD-A) and a Meridian G98DH (CD/DVD-A) I use which ever player (DV-50 or G98) for CD's and DVD-A as the mood strikes me and each other player for it's own format. It does make rack space a potential issue, but I am willing to pay that price for the best sound/video.

I think I came to this conclusion as soon as I realized that I can not find a Blu-ray player that is also region free DVD. So no matter what I do, I will need a region free DVD player. So might as well have a dedicated Blu-ray and then can have a region free DVD/SACD player.

Now just need to try to find a way to keep it neat and managable.
