Egreat A1080 (Egreat S5)
The A1080 uses the latest 667Mhz Sigma 8643 chip so has great raw hardware performance. File format support is comprehensive. There is full HD-Audio support with DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD passthrough. Blu-Ray ISO with full menus and full external Blu-Ray with full menus are supported. The player is compact and fanless / silent.

An internal 2.5" HDD is supported via an innovative slot. In addition you can connect a conventional SATA drive (or BD-ROM) externally via a side mounted SATA port. There are also 2 side mounted USB 2.0 ports. For the first time in a media player, the A1080 has a USB 3.0 slave port (so allowing the A1080 to be connected as an HDD via USB 3).

The major problem with the A1080 is the firmware. All A1080s supplied to date have used a firmware that has now been established as 'borrowed' / 'stolen' from the Dune 3. This sadly renders the A1080 difficult to sell legally in any country with copyright laws.

I can answer this now - it doesn't play multichanel. Everything that it is decoded to PCM goes only as stereo.

BTW - please note the Logo for DTS (2.0+digital). That suggests that multichanel PCM will not be available ever.

I just received my S5 (A1080), And it's an amazing HD Media Player, it's connected to my Samsung HDTV, and my 7.1 HD sound system from Harman Kardon. I have a great collection of Blu-ray movies and TV series which all are ripped into HDDs as ISO, to protect them from getting scratched. A1080 plays all my Blu Ray ISOs like a charm and amazingly, and passes all DTS-HD MA to my Harman Kardon receiver the same way my PS3 does.
So far I recommend it it small and powerfull mini unit.

Hi Iboum

If this uses a firmware which is like dune's, can it internally decode dtshd/truehd to mpcm and pass it via hdmi?

August 11, 2010 - 19:07

Can you check whether it's 120V or 220V or 110V-240V~. Thanks, iboum

INPUT: 100V-240V~

So I guess with the right plug end cable this should work in the USA, if that was the reason for asking..?

Why Egreat A1080 is not supporting Wireless dongle? Any specific reason for that.

Wi-Fi dongle is supported, we've checked and updated the specs.

Research this manufacturer. I was looking at the A1080, but there is weird talk around. Perhaps they should come out with an official statement/ position.

Can someone tell me what the usb 3.0 slave does ???

As I have only usb 2.0 ports, does it give you access to the internal hdd in the A1080 by pluging it in to your pc and adding or deleting data?

Can it still be used if only having usb 2.0

yes, it is backward compatible...

The player is not only "very similar" to HDI Dune, the firmware is actually copied from HDI Dune from the brand delivering the firmware (seems hdmei.com). eGreat is aware but is not willing to do anything about it and now tries entering Europe with these models... Very risky for consumers (no updates) and resellers (legal claims)

Nice one. .Thanks . .Finally some clarification about its firmware

josh – phils
July 23, 2010 - 08:37

ok, my bad for the shipping question.

Ok, I would really take this player into consideration. Another question would be, how bout when the unit is bricked? Is there an emergency FW on this?

Reply to josh
July 23, 2010 - 08:44

Yes, there is. If you did brick it email futeko for the emergency firmware. Actually, by the time you get the player I will have got around to making a thread on the futeko forum with instructions..

July 23, 2010 - 07:33

As regards EGREAT, How about their firmware releases? Is it still frequently released despite the having so many boxes already?

Regarding Egreat a1080, is there any chance you could ship to the philippines??

Reply to josh
July 23, 2010 - 08:25

Firmware releases have been impressive, mostly owing to the fact that it is not Egreat developing the firmware! It is fair to say that Egreat are historically much better at hardware than software. The A1080 firmware is being developed on the hdmei.com site (link above) and is shared with the Egreat S2 and Allure M3. There are new betas coming out very regularly with the most recent version having a web browser (this version works fine but with a bugs). A completely new firmware is also rumoured soon with much improved presentation ('like a PS3' is what I have read).

Your shipping question has been answered by email. Please no futeko ordering related questions on iboum!

July 23, 2010 - 02:51

Does this player have telnet access to allow running custom applications? If not, any other smp8643 players? A200/C200 only supports netcat which is not as convenient as real telnet.

Reply to dugan
July 23, 2010 - 07:26

I'm no expert on this but yes I think it does. I have certainly seen telnet used to access the device remotely and view / edit the HDD directory structure.

Will the a1080 have a fully functioning jukebox?? Just curious though, thy is this company releasing so many players??LOLZ
