High-Quality Onkyo Blu-ray Player Brings Networked Content to Home Theater

July 5th, 2011

OSAKA, JAPAN. Onkyo, a leading specialist in hi-fi and home theater, announces the release of the BD-SP809, the company’s new top-ranked Blu-ray Disc player. The BD-SP809 handles a wide range of disc media and includes sophisticated home-network functionality.

As well as playing the latest 3D-encoded Blu-ray Discs, the BD-SP809 plays virtually all the major types of CD and DVD—including those encoded with popular compressed formats such as DivX HD, MP3, and WMA. Furthermore, it features a USB port that enables users to play back audio and video files from a USB mass storage device.

Owners with a local network set up in their home can use the BD-SP809 to incorporate videos, music, and photos sent from a DLNA 1.5-certified media server. By enabling users to integrate their PC-based content with their home theater systems, this feature promotes greater convergence in home entertainment.

Video sources played through the BD-SP809 are rendered with superb image quality. Onboard Qdeo™ technology from Marvell ensures pristine deinterlacing, noise-reduction, and 1080p upscaling. Meanwhile, the player’s twin HDMI® outputs allow users to switch easily between two displays, such as a main TV for casual viewing and a projector for movies and sports.

The BD-SP809 supports high-definition audio formats in the form of DTS-HD Master Audio™ and Dolby® TrueHD. The integrity of these lossless formats is preserved by the player’s high-precision clock and by a construction design that incorporates separate blocks for video/audio circuitry and a vibration-reducing top cover.

The BD-SP809 has been THX® certified in recognition of its superior build quality, versatile functionality, and high performance levels. Onkyo presents it as an ideal playback source to complement the company’s popular A/V receivers and home-theater speaker packages.
