I just realized something and thats a lot of Blu-Ray players don't seem to have a Coaxial output for audio.
I don't have an HDMI connector on my yamaha Receiver, but I do on my 42 LCD display.
is there a list somewhere that I could see which players have this connection?
I was just about to get a panasonic and none of theres appear to have it either.

There are optical to coax converters available from places like Monoprice if that is your problem.

My Panasonic BD85 has both Optical and Coaxial outs. I believe that the Panny higher end models also have both outputs.

How does the BD-85K compare with say the Panasonic DMP-BDT210 as far as picture and sound?

The x10 series inherited the 85's A/V processing (the 210/310 have a few extra audio effects), so they're about the same. But the x10 series only have optical outs. I'd just get whatever player I wanted plus an optical/coax converter. It's all just bits coming straight from the disc, so the sound will be the same on all models. It's not like analog, which could vary depending on the quality of the components.

Sony S780, S580, & S480 have digital coax. The S780 actually has optical as well as digital coax and 16bit processing. I have an S480 myself connected to a Sony receiver via digital coax and it works great.
