I have confirmed with a source Cinavia future plans are to incorporate the audio watermarking into pressed CD's and infect next generation of audio equipment. Of course this is just in the talks with the major music labels and implementation into audio equipment manufacturer.

Man they're dumb. THey're just inspiring people to do something about it. I do understand protecting ones investment, but I think this is going a bit far...
BD+ was short lived. This one will fail too. It's only a matter of time.

With mp3 players and i-tunes, CD media is going the way of reel to reel and tape cassettes.

Most blu-ray players already have the necessary hardware to process the cinavia signals, so it's not an extra expense for the player manufacturer to physically support detecting Cinavia.
If you ignore the extra expense of manufacturing, it is possible to use Cinavia with any audio recording, but they would have to figure out a way to protect the source media similiar to BDROM mark on original BD's that can't be duplicated with consumer equipment. Since CD's are on their way out as a medium, it would not be worth pursuing that market. It's all about itunes and mp3 players these days.
Edit: If the target player is the existing blu ray players, then I do understand why the record labels would be interested. EG. 7 channels with True HD. But it would have to be with DVD's or BD's,
But that's just one more reason to dump stand alone players and go with an HTPC system.
The simplest solution for avoiding Cinavia is to control the player, rather than trying to filter out the watermark. That may be the ultimate conclusion in the end.
I am all for trying to isolate the watermarks and cancelling the signals out, if it is possible, but so far, it's like trying to use a spoon to seperate food coloring out of a bowl of clear water.

Depends when the blu ray player was made. If you go to the manufacturers web site they have firmware upgrades. Avoid anything that says cinavia. You need to find out what firmware the player is currently is using. You might want to downgrade the firmware so you don't have the cinavia protection. My blu ray player currently doesn't have the cinavia protection. If I upgrade to the newest firmware I will have that cinavia protection. Which I don't want.

I'm about 90 percent sure this player is probably Cinavia supported out of the box given the manufacturing date. Cinavia support is going to be the typical thing with future licensed blu ray players.
HTPC's are still the best solution with dealing with Cinavia, in my opinion.
