Yes, I would wear a T-shirt that reads Press and Hold for More Options

      I'm thinking about getting a Sony 4K Blu Ray player for my 4K MKV files. I do play some of them on my Roku which auto-downmixes them to 1080p for my TV. MKVs UHD or not with DTS soundtracks unfortunately won't play or pass through the audio on the Roku. I don't want to transcode a huge number of movies from DTS to DD, so I want something future proof that handles all soundtracks for 1080p and 2160p.

     I doubt I'll use the disc player at all, maybe just test it. It's the USB I want, with maybe the streaming, though the Roku covers that pretty well.

I like herring, I just cannot stand them in a cream sauce.

It's a while since I listened to Britten's recording of Albert Herring.

I've never ever listened to it (recording and work, that is). What am I missing? Am I really missing anything?

Des violons
De l'automne
Blessent mon coeur
D'une langueur

This is getting dangerously off-topic. ;) It's a couple of years since I heard it, so can't really say much about the piece. It's not my favourite Britten opera (Peter Grimes, Turn of the Screw, A Death in Venice are the ones I like most) - but I like all of them.
