Onkyo announced the BD-SP809, their new top-of-the-line THX Certified, network capable, Blu-ray Disc player. The BD-SP809 handles a wide range of disc media, includes sophisticated home-network functionality that supports one of the more recent developments in home entertainment, video on demand (VOD).

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 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 computer-based content with their home theater systems, this feature promotes greater convergence in home entertainment.

The Onkyo BD-SP809 video-on-demand capabilities allow consumers to stream movies and TV shows directly to their TVs in HD- or SD-quality video through the Netflix, Blockbuster, Film Fresh, and VUDU services.

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.

Price and Availability
The Onkyo BD-SP809 will be available in August 2011 for $599.
