Don't-Miss Blu-ray Stories
Microsoft promises a fix in 2017, but today the game console doesn't pass high-def audio bitstreams such as Dolby TrueHD or Dolby Atmos to the rest of your home-theater gear.
You don't get a lot of extra features, but this player delivers excellent performance on both the video and audio fronts.
This is the only Blu-ray player we've seen that can also play DSD audio files, but don't pay the premium price unless you can take full advantage of its advanced features.
The biggest new feature is support for streaming to set-top boxes such as AppleTV, Roku, and Chromecast.
