Lexicon Announces THX-certified BD/SACD/DVD-A Player

Posted July 27, 2009 05:49 AM by Juan Calonge

Blu-ray DiscHigh-end AV manufacturer Lexicon has announced its first Blu-ray player, model BD-30. This will sport a THX certification, and it will also support Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio. Image processing comes via Anchor Bay's VRS technology. It is expected to be available later this year and retail for $3,499. It will be presented at the upcoming CEDIA Expo.

Some enthusiasts have already pointed out the similarities in specifications between this model and the Oppo BDP-83, and wonder whether the Lexicon player will be based on the Oppo platform, with some modifications.

I got all excited until I saw the price. Keeping options in the back of my head for when my SACD capable PS3 dies...

Lot of money, but great features. When is someone going to put all that into a better priced player?

If I were to buy a high-end BD player, I would not spend $3500 on it. The Oppo is much more reasonable and probably does just as well. For now, I'm sticking with my Panasonic DMP-BD35 which I bought for, oh, about 1/20th the price of this Lexicon player.

Maybe Onkyo will finally get in gear and release a "universal" THX player for 1/3 the price of this?that's a player that might get my attention.

Specs sound exactly like the new Oppo player. Why throw money out the window?

Sounds like a bargain compared to the $10K McIntosh MVP881 expected this fall.

As source players just become digital transports, I don't know how high end companies will be able to justify these high priced source components. Really, what value do they add? Do they really expect us to believe the ones and zeros coming out of their player are better?

Just get the Oppo and save $3000.
