Default EIDOS 20 BD Blu-Ray player = high-end or just kick to the rear end?

http://gizmodo.com/360669/goldmunds-...layer-at-16900


I would expect this player be able to do bitstream/decode all audio codecs and be Profile 2.0. This player should also be able to make, stir, and shake drinks, heat up my seats, and set my AC to optimal temperature.

Taking into account the other 15 Blu-ray players currently available, this thing drove the average cost of a Blu-ray player up to $2,000. So much for prices dropping

High-end gear like this is a complete waste. Why does anyone with the money to afford it lack the brains to not buy it?

Eidos is famous for crazy expensive stuff. They used to have a $25k DVD transport. May still for all I know. Makes you wonder just how many pieces they sell.

If nothing else, this will overshadow the people whining about the $2000 Denon/Marantz machines.

Looks like it was made in the 80's. Why can't this uber expensive stuff actually look nice.

Heh, with the name I thought it was a 20 BD changer. It would make the price more worth it if it was.
