Blu Ray player with FLAC support (Panasonic DMP-BD87)


Thought would share this.
Came across :- Panasonic DMP-BD87 - Smart Network Blu-Ray Disc Player DMP-BD87 - Technical Specifications

Seems ideal for the requirement many of us have :-
1) DLNA support
2) FLAC support
3) Built in Wi-fi
4) MKV support
5) Dolby? Digital Plus/ Dolby TrueHD
6) generally Panasonic blu ray players are touted to be great in their video and audio handling, sometimes better than much costlier like Sony. (Check whathifi)

Found this link on expected cost in India :-
Panasonic DMP-BD87 Blu-ray Disc Player | Overstock.com
Rs.8251.

Initial impression, seems promising. ladies and gents start your engines (research) !

thanks
gaurav

I was lukn for blue ray to match Denon 1612. The price at 8251 is jus right for me. Is it good for denon? Denon blue ray costs min 27k.

You can go with any BR Player. The PQ should be almost the same when a BR disk is played.

It certainly isnt' discontinued, if anything its one of the the latest 2012 panasonic models.
The thing is its a US model, as of now. I am hoping it might be released for India/Pacific in few months.

The specs dont mention it, might have to ask Panasonic directly or try it out.

from Panasonic site :-
Quote:
External HDD Playback
Easily enjoy stored content

The 2012 Blu-ray Disc™ Players and Home Theaters are compatible with NTFS (NT File System) format external hard disk drives, so you can enjoy music (FLAC, MP3), photos (JPEG, MPO), and camcorder video content (AVCHD, MP4) archived on an external HDD.

• Playback is not possible with some external hard disk drives.

Havent personally done any transaction with them yet, though havent found anything adverse on the net about them. you might want to ask wider audience on the forum about it.

Yea, mod'ing wouldb e required for a US model, that is why i am hoping/waiting for an Indian/Asian release of the model.

Thanks

i checked various site related to modding Panasonic Players, but it seems Panasonic region-hack for panny is not much available, where as for sammy almost all models can be hacked.
