ONKYO to Ship Blu-ray Disc Player In Late 2008

New Player will work ONKYO’s High-Definition A/V Receivers to Realize Full Potential of High-Definition Media

July 1st, 2008

OSAKA – ONKYO Corporation has announced that it will release its first Blu-ray Disc Player for the international market in late 2008. This player is designed to partner Onkyo’s high-definition A/V receivers equipped with full HDMI processing of 1080p video and decoding of Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD™ Master Audio surround sound formats.

Onkyo was among the first home theater manufacturers to offer full audio and video processing capabilities for HD formats such as Blu-ray Disc. The company’s A/V receivers deliver a complete high-definition experience with onboard decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio codecs. The release of this Blu-ray Disc player will be timely given that the second-generation of high-definition-capable Onkyo A/V receivers is now available. Product details and pricing will be announced prior to delivery.

I wonder how many kidneys I'd have to sell in order to buy one. :-k

I'm waiting for Onkyo's (or Integra's) second generation of pre/pro's, or their first gen unit's to crash. As they don't seem to be making many, they are commanding a strong price, if you can get one.
