I have learned about a set of blu-ray audio discs I’d really like to get, but I don’t own a blu-ray player (e.g., an Oppo). The discs contain both 5.1 and 2.0 mixes, and it’s the latter I would play since I don’t have a surround-sound setup. I can borrow an external USB blu-ray player from a friend and connect it to the computer in my music room. Can foobar2000 (with plugins, I assume, as for playing DSD) play blu-ray audio? Any other method? My laptop came with some software to play blu-ray movies–would that work? I have no idea about the sound quality of the latter, of course. (You’ve probably figured out by now that I’m not into movies . . . )
Thanks for any help!
