New Sony WiFi Blu-ray Player on the Way

Posted March 3, 2009 08:15 AM by Josh Dreuth

SonySony Electronics has announced that they will bring two new Blu-ray Disc players - the BDP-S360 and BDP-S560 - to consumers this May. Both players will support 1080p24 video output, be BD-Live capable, and support decoding and streaming of both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio sound formats.

Both decks will also support Sony's Precision Drive Technology, which helps stabilize warped or scratched discs during playback, as well as Sony's Precision Cinema HD Upscale technology to upconvert standard definition media to near-HD quality.

The Sony BDP-S560 will benefit by gaining WiFi capabilities, a first for a Sony standalone player. It will be able to connect wirelessly to most (A/B/G/N) wireless networks, as well as feature WiFi Protected Set-up and DLNA connection software for easy connection and interface with home routers and other DLNA devices.

Both players will be available in May, the BDP-S360 for $300 and the BDP-S560 for $350.

Additionally, Sony will bring to Blu-ray home theater systems, the BDV-E300 and BDV-E500W which will feature similar specs to the BDP-S360. Both will feature Sony's S-AIR wireless surround sound speakers and be fully BD-Live capable. They will be available in June, the BDV-E300 for $600 and the BDV-E500W for $800.

I will have to take these into consideration as well. I'm looking for a standalone player to replace my PS3 and have been trying to wait for one with WiFi built in. Wonder what the chances of the HTiB's wireless surround channels being any good are.

I'm still eagerly awaiting the news announcing the release date for Sony's 400 disc BD changer; I hope the economic situation has not taken it hostage. In any case, these two sound like solid players.

A fully-specced player that you don't need to hook up to the net, for just $350... yummy.

I feel like manufacturers should focus on building BD players that retail for lower then $199.99MSRP instead of adding more features and keeping the prices hovering around $299.99 and up MSRP. Just so people will still adopt BD in these harsh economic times.

I may get that cheaper Surround Sound system. I'm one of 8 people who like Sony receivers and speakers.

when I use BD-Live.

Some of these posts can be so annoying. Why don't you go tell Nissan to dump Infiniti, Toyota to dump lexus, and Honda to dump Acura in these harsh economic times. There are $199 players around if you need them. Just get off your ass and shop around.

models are faster and less noisy.

BD4Life,

The 560's MSRP is $50 cheaper than the 550's current MSRP, and $150 cheaper than it's original MSRP.

The 360 is the same MSRP as the 350, but $100 cheaper than the 350's original MSRP.
