Onkyo BD-SP809

Physical Media is becoming less and less important these days but I for one still have a decent DVD collection and I tend to buy Blu-Rays of movies that I love like Star Trek, Transformers, 300, Die Hard, and a few others. I have been depending on my PS3 for all my Blu-Ray needs but some times I have some other region DVDs and nothing to play it. Overall prices for Blu-Ray players have dropped drastically over the past two years, when they first launched they were expensive as hell, slow and very annoying. Now they are fully featured with lots of options and internet integration. On the higher end of the scale is the Onkyo with every sort of option you can have as well as internet integration and media playback from your network.

Announced for august at a $599 suggested retail price, the BD-SP809 is made to support everything, from CDs, DVDs and BRs, as well as most common video and audio format available on the market with DviX HD, MP3, WMA via USB of stored on your NAS! Not only the BD-SP809 is DLNA 1.5 but also support many of US best VoD Services including VUDU, Netflix, Blockbuster….
Compatible with most audio standards including DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD, the BD-SP809 is THE Blu-Ray player you must own if you are looking for one right now!

Alternative Options:

  • Oppo BDP-93
  • Integra DBS 50.2
