CES 2010: Sony's new Blu-ray and home theater products (photos)
CNET rounds up all the photos of Sony's new home theater products at CES 2010.
3D Blu-ray is one of the big stories at CES 2010, and it's no surprise that Sony is a major player in Blu-ray's next incarnation. Sony announced its first standalone 3D Blu-ray player, the BDP-S770, which also manages to integrate the best features of its current Blu-ray players.
In 2009, Sony's BDP-S560 had Wi-Fi, but limited streaming-media options; the BDP-N460
had tons of streaming-media options, but only Ethernet connectivity.
The Sony BDP-S770 has the best of both players, so you'll have easy
access to some instant gratification media when you're tired of wearing
Sony says the BDP-S770 is coming this summer, but didn't announce pricing
3D Blu-ray may be getting all the buzz at CES 2010, but standard Blu-ray players are still the meat-and-potatoes of the home theater market. Sony announced two new standard Blu-ray players at CES 2010--the BDP-S370 and the BDP-S570--building on the streaming-media features of the BDP-N460.
We reviewed the Sony BDP-N460 just last month and were impressed with
its wide variety of streaming-media content and the BDP-S570 addresses our biggest concern by adding
We knew 3D was coming, but we didn't expect it to be integrated into a home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) system this quickly. Sony announced the BDV-HZ970W, a home theater system that features an integrated 3D Blu-ray player and a 5.1 speaker system with wireless rear speakers.
Sony also introduced one Blu-ray-ready home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) system at CES 2010. It's the successer to the HT-SS360 we reviewed last year, with a similar feature set, including three HDMI inputs, and is S-Air ready for wireless rear speakers (you need to purchase an additional S-Air transmitter).
