Sony BDV-E580 Blu-Ray Disc Player Home Entertainment System
If you are ready for Blu-ray, upgrading to the BDV-E580 is for you. Like its little brother, this system provides 1000 watts of power to 5.1 channels. That breaks down to 165 watts for the subwoofer and 167 watts for the other channels.
A few extra features are included with this model: built in Wi-Fi for connection to the Web, Internet audio/video streaming from Netflix and other sources, iPod and iPhone docking, and two HDMI inputs with pass-through support. Pass-through support allows you to connect additional high-definition devices such as full HD 3D-ready HDTVs, Blu-ray players and gaming consoles.
The speakers are small and sleek, but don't let that fool you. They can handle the power and recreate realistic, crystal-clear audio ranging from booms and blasts to love songs and symphonies.
If you've never experienced Blu-ray, Sony's included player is a great way to open your eyes to a new world you've been missing with VHS and DVD. The integrated Blu-ray player produces full HD 1080p Blu-ray Disc movies for incredible audio and video that you would otherwise not know was there.
The Sony BDV-E580 Blu-Ray Disc Player Home Entertainment System is available at Amazon for $423.92
