Sony BDV-E300 and BDV-E500W Blu-ray Home Theater Systems


Both Blu-ray Disc Theater Systems are BD-Live Capable

Sony is launching two new 5.1 channel Blu-ray Disc home theater systems, the BDV-E300 and BDV-E500W. The models are BD-Live capable and support the latest advanced audio codecs including 7.1 channel Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding as well as bit-stream.

The BDV-E500W features integrated S-AIR wireless audio capabilities. Sony’s S-AIR technology transmits audio up to 164 feet from the main system to wireless rear speakers for simple surround sound (signal and sound quality may vary) or up to 10 individual S-AIR AirStation audio devices (sold separately) throughout the home. The BDV-E300 model is S-AIR ready so users can add optional modules, also sold separately.

Both systems include Sony’s Digital Media Port, which adds control and connectivity options for music playback through various accessories, including a cradle for iPod players which is packaged with each system, or an optional Network Walkman™ cradle, a PC client device and a Bluetooth adapter (each sold separately).

The models include an easy set-up DVD, eliminating any confusion during the set up process. Also, Sony’s BRAVIA Sync™ technology simplifies every day operation with one-button command of compatible home theater components through HDMI.

The models also feature Sony’s Xross Media Bar (XMB™) graphic user interface for easy menu navigation, Precision Drive technology, Precision Cinema Upscaling technology and a USB port allowing users to add their external flash memory for BD-Live features. The units ship with an easy set-up DVD for step-by-step instruction on initial set up process.
