"Marantz BD8002 Blu-ray Disc Player

Marantz BD8002

At CEDIA 2007, Marantz is debuting its first BD-ROM Profile 1 version 1.1 Blu-ray Disc Player. The Marantz BD8002 Blu-ray DVD player features the acclaimed 10-bit Silicon Optix Realta chipset for the ultimate high-definition video resolution possible via HDMITM connection, as well as the finest possible audio performance, including high-definition audio decoding and DDSC-HD audio output.

The Marantz BD8002 is scheduled for delivery in the 1st Qtr. of 2008 and will carry a MSRP of$2099.99."

So I can already hear all kinds of people bitching about the price.

Personally I am waiting to hear more about the AVR SR 8002/7002 to see if they can compete with new Pioneer Elite 92/94. All of them include DTS-MA decoders so we can enjoy all of those Fox Discs.

Love Marantz, but of course, this price is ridiculous. No I'm not saying it's probably not a great player but still. Maybe if I win the lottery!

After Pioneer's announcement of their new flagship receiver at around $7,000 (yes, 7K) who cares about the price of a $2,000 BD player...

Considering the company $2000 isn't very surprising. Marantz has always been an expensive higher end company.

I would never pay $2000 for a player but for those few that can it is just another option.

Now if the BDA would just offer a 1.1 player under $500 for the other 95% of us that can't afford $2,000 I would be happy.

wouldn't we all. Look any year now. btw, the idea that Blu-Ray players are going to be $300 by X-mas is a joke imo. I don't think it's going to happen. maybe 1.

I'm assuming this thing will decode TrueHD and DTS-MA. The link was pretty vague.

Anybody hear anything about a BD player or surround sound receiver that will decode TrueHD and DTS-MA from Rotel?

From Rotel no, but from Marantz, Denon, Onkyo and Pioneer, yes.

Denon and Marantz are related, and share the same ownership group (D&M Holdings). This player is likely related to the Denon unit, there has been some crossover in the past between the brands. This is a similar situation to the Onkyo/Integra players.
