Buying a 5.1 blu ray player
I want to buy a blu-ray player that has 5.1 speaker connections but no speakers. Is there such a product available on the market that I can buy? Thanks for your help.
I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.
When you say a Blu-ray player with no speakers, I assume you are talking about a standalone player rather than one that comes as part of a system.
For example, you can buy a Blu-ray system like the Sony BDVE370.CEK 5.1 Blu-Ray Home Cinema System
that comes with a receiver and speakers.
So assuming this isn't what you want, then you would be looking at a standalone Blu-ray player.
There are a number of good quality players, but you could start looking at the budget end at the Sony BDPS370 Blu-ray Player
or the Panasonic DMP-BD45EB-K Blu-Ray Disc Player
Now, you would usually connect these via HDMI to an AV receiver to get 5.1 surround sound. However, your question suggests you may be talking about a player with 5.1 analog phono outputs for connecting to a surround sound amplifier that doesn't have HDMI.
If so, then you would need to spend a bit more and maybe look at something like the Panasonic DMP-BD85EB-K Blu-Ray Disc Player
Hope that helps.
