Sharp BD-MPC home theater systems feature integrated Blu-ray

Sharp offers up two home-theater-in-a-box systems with integrated Blu-ray, and both are Profile 2.0 compatible.

Last year there were a handful of home-theater-in-a-box systems with integrated Blu-ray, but in 2009, it looks as if the feature will be close to standard. Sharp has announced the BD-MPC series of home theater systems that come complete integrated Profile 2.0-compatible Blu-ray players. Not much additional information was released, but here's what we know.

Key features of the Sharp BD-MPC series:

  • 5.1 home theater system
  • 720 watts of power
  • Blu-ray player included
  • Profile 2.0 compatible with an Ethernet jack
  • Both models available in the spring with an MSRP of $800

There are two models in the BD-MPC series, the BD-MPC30 and BD-MPC40. The difference between the two models is merely cosmetic, with the BD-MPC30 featuring a black synthetic finish and the BD-MPC40 has black wooden cabinets.
