Yamaha BD-S681 & BD-A1060 Blu-ray Players Upscale 4K

Yamaha today announced its BD-S681 and higher-performance AVENTAGE BD-A1060 Blu-ray Disc players, both of which employ advanced 4K Ultra HD upscaling technology to turn 1080p HD source material into crystal clear images for today’s premium big-screen 4K televisions.

Both models have built-in Wi-Fi networking to access BD Live extra features on supporting Blu-ray Discs. The Wi-Fi Direct feature allows the streaming of music directly from a mobile device to the player for viewing on a TV.

Moreover, both Blu-ray Disc players offer support for full HD Blu-ray Discs, 3D Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, SACDs and standard audio CDs, among others. To further improve CD music playback, a CD Mode has been added on both models to reduce disc revolution by 30 percent thereby reducing unwanted disc vibration to ensure music is free of signal noise and remains bright and lifelike.
