Blu Ray player with digital out?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am in need of some help, after months of searching I still have came up with nothing in terms of a Blu-Ray player (henceforth BRP) which has the features I want at the size I want.

The BRP needs to:
-be HDMI (obviously)
-have digital out (this way I can use my old surround sound speaker system without letting it go to waste)
-Be less that 15 inches (38.1cm) wide maximum though I would prefer something smaller so it isn't such a squeeze in the cabinet.

My budget is around £100 but I am willing to pay more within reason.
Before you suggest a PS3 I have looked at this possibility for a while yet with the cost of them just for playing Blu - Rays it is not worth it unless you can find one around the £100 mark.
Any help with this would be most appreciated.

Edit: If this is in the wrong place, sorry but I couldn't find a better place.

I can't recommend you one since I'm not well versed with Blu-Ray players, but there is a maximum width for any AV device. From what I have seen they have digital out, but it may differ with it being coxial or SPDIF.
My $50 Sylvania has been doing the job just fine though. Has both SPDIF and Coaxial out too.

I think you're going to have a hard time finding one under 400mm wide. Here's one with Optical audio out but is 430mm wide http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/p...roduct_ID/6573
