Blu Ray Player Review

Sony BDP S300, Sony Blu Ray, Sony 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 Sony’s 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 effortlessly cinematic.
