Who cares (actually)! Players are a dime a dozen and someone will always be making one. I have a top of the line Samsung and s Sony in the system. The Samsung is a little quirky when playing CD via HDMI. For Blu-ray, it’s nice having dual players for the occasional glitch, when for whatever reason, one player has trouble with a disc that the latter deals without a problem.
