Can anyone tell if this player is region free or not? I just ordered a concert from Amazon UK. But after I pre-ordered it I noticed it has a Region B/2 on the info. Does this player have the ability to play that disc? Since its not available here in the US yet, I had to have it. Or is there a way to hack it get it to play?

I don't believe it's region free.

Can it be? Or is it still impossible?

I don't know. I bought mine at Best Buy.
Do USA brick and mortar stores carry region free players?
I always thought those had to be bought online

Same here. But if I do get the disc and its still not playing, Amazon said I can return it and refund my money...keeping fingers crossed that they still honor their word.

No, you cannot buy a region free player from a legitimate store. It's a violation of the Blu-ray licensing agreement for a manufacturer to even offer a region free player. Generally, you have to buy a kit or you have to buy the player from a company that makes the kits - they buy someone else's player, modify it, then sell the whole thing to you.

That's why OPPO and others don't sell region-free directly.
loose="not tight", lose="can't find it, doesn't have anymore" or the opposite of "win".
their="belongs to", there="place", they're="they are", there's = "there is"
it's="it is", for everything else use "its"
then="after", than="compared with"
"a lot" not "alot"

Default Still chugging along...

I have a 570/BX57 that's still chugging along. It's connected to a Sony STR-DH740 receiver via HDMI.

Trying to play (Hybrid) SACD's on the BX57, and I know the DH740 does not accept DSD via HDMI, but the PCM playback sounds quite good.

Last week, the SACD playback registered on the receiver as PCM @ 176.4KHZ, but 2 days ago I tried again and it is only registering as 2ch PCM @ 44.1KHZ.

Is there some setting I may (must) have inadvertently switched on one or the other device that would prevent it from playing back at the full 176.4?

I double checked the BX57 and it's set to play the SACD layer of the hybrid discs. Can't think of anything else that may have changed.
