With the announcement of the Sony BDP-CX960 400 disc Blu-ray multicharger Sony seems to have made a great move. The device capable of storing 400 Blu-ray/DVD/CD discs comes with all the expected features for only $800.
Full HD 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema output and Precision Cinema HD Upscale technology.
The BDP-CX960 features an Ethernet port for connectivity to a local home broadband network to download metadata from Gracenote, software updates and to access BD-Live™ content. There is also an external port for local storage so users can add their USB flash storage device to support BD-Live content.
The model supports 7.1 channel Dolby® TrueHD and Dolby® Digital Plus, DTS®-HD High Resolution Audio, and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding as well as bit-stream output via HDMI. It is compatible with an array of video formats, including BD-ROM/R/RE (BDMV and BDAV modes), DVD-+ Video/R/RW, CD/R/RW, and MP3/JPEG on BD/DVD/CD recordable media and supports x.v.Color™ (xvYCC) technology. The BDP-CX7000ES also supports Deep Color via HDMI (v1.3).
This might be a multi-charger I might want to invest in, considered the fact that a 2TB external hard drive, necessary space needed for the content of 40 maximally used BDs or around 80 iTunes HD movies, still more than $200 costs.
I do hope the Yamaha NeoHD remote works with this Blu-ray player.
