Blu-ray, DVD, 3D home cinema speaker system
Sony Europe has just announced the BDV-470SS Blu-ray Disc and DVD Home Cinema System with easy iPod playback. It combines Sony's HT-AS5 speaker system with the BDP-S470 3D Blu-ray player, making a complete 'just add TV' package.
The BDV-470SS system lets you stream music, video and TV via the BRAVIA® Internet Video platform, access the internet or content stored on a computer using DLNA, and playback a variety of content from compatible USB devices.
You can even control the system's playback functions over your home network using an iPod Touch or iPhone and a downloadable app.
The BDV-470SS hides away its 1000W S-Master amplification in its subwoofer unit, which also contains all the audio processing for the system as well as an FM RDS/AM radio tuner. That just leaves four compact speakers on show, while Auto Calibration makes sure set-up is as accurate as possible, while the Digital Cinema Sound processing delivers the big screen sound experience.
3D pass-through is available on all three HDMI inputs, while the HDMI monitor output also has Audio Return Channel capability. This allows sound from a TV's internal tuner to be delivered through the surround system, halving the usual cable requirement.
BRAVIA® Sync allows an entire home cinema system to be controlled from one handset, while the 'Home Theatre Control' BRAVIA® Internet Widget will allow the TV's onscreen display to control the sound system.
