    DVD and BL4000 vs BL4 rears recommendation

    Thanks in advance to all of you who have posted suggestions to my prior posts seeking advice for my home theater set-up.

    Two remaining decisions: DVD player and rears.

     Kit will be BV 4-50 TV, BS3, BL7-2 center, BL6000's fronts.

     Question on rears: Can a pair of BL4's do the job or should I get a pair of BL4000's?  Rears will be ceiling mounted, about 11.5 feet high (3.5 meters) and about 6-9 feet (1.8-2.7meters) behind the main viewing seats. 

    Suggestions for DVD player: What players are any of you using with a BeoSystem 3?  I've been considering a Samsung BD-P1200 blu-ray, which I am told works perfectly with the system and Beo4 remote.  Is a blu-ray dvd player overkill for the 720p TV?  Would I be better off with just an upscaling DVD player?  I would prefer a player that integrates with the Beo4 remote-- which is why I'm not considering the PlayStation 3.

     Thanks-- as always-- for your input.

    Have you considered the Beocenter 2 as your DVD player. I am using this with the Beosystem 3 and it is fantastic.

     You also do not require an upscaling DVD player if you are going through the BS3 as it will do all the upscalling for you.

    I would do BC2 as well, because I like the design and it should do just fine for DVD watching. Unless you are planning to buy blueray movies I would not yet buy a player, there should be plenty of improvements coming in future models. Would be a cheaper option though.

    Are there any other non B&O DVD players that the BS3 supports?


    BS9000, BS2300, BC2, BL2500, BL3, Bl2, BS1, BV8, BC4, A8

    Thanks Corvin & jk.  I agree the BC2 is fantastic, but I'm WAY over budget on this system.  I'm more in the area of a  non-B&O dvd player-- at least for now.  Several Panasonic, Denon, Samsung and Sony dvd players are supported-- I'm curious if anyone has a particular model they have been very happy with.  Thanks~~~
