Marketing Information

Now you'll never be short of content. As Onkyo's top Blu-ray player, the THX certified BD-SP809 provides a wide range of playback functions to complement your high-quality home cinema. As well as playing CDs, DVDs, and 3D-encoded BDs, the BD-SP809 handles videos, music, and photos sent from a DLNA 1.5-certified media server. On top of that, it also features a USB port that lets you play back audio and video files from a thumb drive. Image quality is superb, whatever the source. Onboard Qdeo technology from Marvell ensures pristine deinterlacing, noise-reduction, and 1080p upscaling. Twin HDMI outputs allow you to switch between two displays - say, your main TV for daily viewing and a projector for movies and sports. And whether you're playing high-def DTS and Dolby formats or compressed MP3s, your audio benefits from a high-precision clock, separate blocks for video/audio circuitry, and a vibration-reducing top cover. It all adds up to a virtuoso playback solution for the dedicated fan of quality entertainment.
