Maybe Apple Needs to Make a Blu-Ray Player?

  • Summary: I bought this player to complete my new $8000 Sony/Denon/Definitive Technology/Harmony One dream system. It performs as reviewed by the most-helpful reviews on this site, although of course the analog audio issues are moot for HDMI 1.3 users like me.

  • Summary: Out of the box, the unit is surprisingly small. It's full-width, but only half the depth of every other component I have in my rack. This all but guarantees the new Blu-ray Disc player will sit proudly at the top of my six-and-a-half foot tower of electronics.

  • Summary: this is the player i've waiting for....about a year now. it was well worth it for me because i wanted to have the latest tech so i wouldn't have to buy another for a while, plus most of my friends already had players. the sound and picture is perfect, start up time is not bad at all.

Just a few more features needed

  • Summary: I have owned the Sony BDP-S550 Blu-ray player for about three weeks. It is my first Blu-ray player. With the right Blu-ray program material, the audio and video quality is as good as all the positive reviews here attest.

Pristine video. Crystal clear audio.

  • Summary: Let me first start out by stating that I'm living in an analog world. I'm using component video and 7.1-channel RCA connectors for audio. This ability, combined with Profile 2.0, was the primary reason I waited for the Sony BDP-S550. Out of the box, the unit is surprisingly small.

  • Excerpt: I bought this as a gift for my partner (and myself!)for Christmas 2010. The price was more than reasonable for the item and a lot less than I was expecting to pay give the premium name. We have watched a few blue ray discs on it and the quality is excellent.

Good but a bit slow

  • Summary: Runs off same remote as my Sony TV which is a real plus. Excellent picture - really pin-sharp. A little slow - I timed 40 secs to load and start playing which seems an age when you're waiting. Highly recommended tho'.

Great player

  • Excerpt: This player was built purposely to complement the Sony Bravia range of TVs. With that said what can this player offer to both Bravia and non-Bravia owners. As with most Sony Blu ray players the audio and video quality is top notch and can't be faulted.
