Classy Blu-ray Player with Home Networking and Video On Demand

Now you’ll never be short of content. As Onkyo’s top Blu-ray player, the THX® certified BD-SP809 provides a wide range of playback functions to complement your high-quality home theater. As well as playing CDs, DVDs, and 3D-encoded BDs, the BD-SP809 handles videos, music, and photos sent from a DLNA 1.5-certified media server. On top of that, it also supports video on demand from popular services such as VUDU, Blockbuster, and Netflix. Image quality is superb, whatever the source. Onboard Qdeo™ technology from Marvell ensures pristine deinterlacing, noise-reduction, and 1080p upscaling. Twin HDMI® outputs allow you to switch between two displays—say, your main TV for daily viewing and a projector for movies and sports. And whether you’re playing high-def DTS and Dolby formats or compressed MP3s, your audio benefits from a high-precision clock, separate blocks for video and audio circuitry, and a vibration-reducing top cover. It all adds up to a virtuoso playback solution for the dedicated fan of quality entertainment.
