What's the real reason Blu-Ray players don't come in multi-disc carousel configurations?
After much googling and reading of of BD sites, as well as reading this
, I am still not sure why the Blu-Ray hardware makers don't make carousel players. Assuming the obvious deductive reasoning that more moving parts may cause the machines to not last as long, I am not convinced that this is the reason, since that didn't ever stop CD and DVD carousels from becoming prevalent.
I don't want to add another piece of hardware to the A/V mess in the living room armoir, i'd prefer to replace my CD/DVD carousel with a BD/CD/DVD/etc carousel, but I can't seem to find any in an affordable price range. I do actually get some value out of the carousel (using one machine to support video and audio), and considering that most (if not all) BD players play all audio and video formats, I don't see a good reason to have a BD player AND my CD/DVD carousel.
So, is there a real, valid reason they don't make them?
