Sony BDP S300
Blu Ray Player Review
The Sony BDP S300 is compatible with any of your original DVD discs and with the 1080p upscaling you can view these at a remarkable level of resolution.
As you would expect from Sonys cutting edge format, this player will provide you with first-rate connectivity. The HDMI socket
links up with the Bravia Theatre Sync allowing you to have single remote functionality for the full Sony home cinema system
experience. The choice of electrical coaxial and optical digital outputs is provided along with 5.1 channel analogue audio output.
The BDP-S300 has perhaps a relatively cheap price tag which is reflected in its somewhat limited list of features. It lacks Dolby
True HD, DTS HD and DTS HD Master Audio decoding, and although it has HDMI v1.3 output, you are unable to output to a compatible
amp. The BDP-S300 is specified as Profile 1.0, meaning limited access to some Blu-ray extras.
The BDP S300 does however offer you with 1080p output at a cinematic 24 frames-per-second, along with up to eight channels of PCM
audio from via the HDMI. The player also supports xvColour, to give you an extended range of rich, deep colour for more accurate
reproduction. The BDP-S300 makes up for its lack of features with an astounding picture performance that is crisp and clear and
