Sadly my benchmark decision on a player is subtitle control. At a min the oppo/Sony/pioneer shift capability. Ideally Panasonic with finer shift and luminance. Reading the manual there are a tonne of options for closed captioning. And that I don't get - from what disc????? Region unlocking would be nice too...

Manufacturers of 4K disc players are required to region lock their players as part of the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) licensing agreement. Region free players are modified after market by third parties such as 220 Electronics and Bombay Electronics here in the U.S. Oppo players could be modified by the user by purchasing a modification kit from various sellers on ebay.

No optical output though? Come on Tascam, you could have done better than that.

Doubt very many commercial installs would use optical connections. If you need optical there are several small coax to optical converter boxes available.

Hmm, I wasn't even aware of that. Thanks.

Optical isn't a big deal for me personally, but If I ever transport the player to a friend's house to enjoy a 4K movie, optical is always an easy hookup for audio through their soundbar/ receivers.

I'm sure the PM will loan you one of his palaces along the French Riveria.

And maybe one of his beat-up old town cars that he gets around in, like the Rolls perhaps?

Although Wabs, I will admit at one time seriously looking at villas on Lake Garda after having finished the last stage of this physical challenge back in the day Ė

Based on the manual it has some interesting audio features
- volume control
- vomume control affects also HDMI and S/PDIF outputs
- S/PDIF can be switched to output LR downmix, FL FR, C SW, SL SR or SBL SBR channel pairs
- different downmix modes (Dolby headphone, Dolby virtual soeaker etc.)

I wish it had eARC and HDMI input - would have been a perfect compact home teather processor like Oppo UDP-203 is.

No and you'll likely never see one. It's not meant for consumers, as it's a professional A/V product for business/commercial use.

Well, there are publications, paper and web, that specialize in professional a/v equipment reviews. Home theatre aficionados like us will certainly be able to find close-by resellers as Tascam products are often found in musical instruments stores.

I hear you... There are seven Tascam resellers in a 4 km radius from my home.

If anything, the Tascam BD-MP4K will be more readily available than when I bought my Oppo 203: if memory serves me right, I had the choice between one brick and mortar reseller here in Montreal or two web resellers in Toronto.

Curious to find out about media playback for formats like m2ts or mkv. As good or better than the Oppo? That’s one area where my Panny 820 is sorely lacking.
