Sony's BDP-S300 Blu-ray player is the successor to its BDP-S1 and offers many of the same features, such as output of 24 frames per second and DVD upconversion to 1080p. You also get a couple other perks such as support for the xvYCC color space and the ability to decode Dolby Digital Plus sound tracks. The BDP-S300 will have a list price of $600 when it's released this summer.

All of Sony's new stereo shelf systems feature built-in Bluetooth technology, so you can stream music from compatible devices, such as cell phones and MP3 players. The high-end CMT-DH7BT micro home theater system (pictured) is satellite-radio ready and features DVD playback for $300. The new line of shelf systems is due out in April.

The $300 DAV-HDX265 is the entry-level product in Sony's new Bravia line of home theater systems. It offers a built-in five-disc DVD changer, 720p/1080i HDMI output, and Sony's Digital Media Port--a proprietary jack that allows the system to interface with any one of four accessories (sold separately) that provide connectivity to iPods, Bluetooth-enabled audio devices, streaming network audio, or Sony's own Network Walkman portable music player.

In addition to the DVD upscaling and Digital Music Port found on the DAV-HDX265, Sony's $300 DAV-HDX267W includes a module that enables the rear speakers to be connected wirelessly, precluding the need to run speaker wires to the back of the room.

The $500 DAV-HDX500 includes several options not found in the more affordable Bravia home theater systems: It's XM-ready, features front "tallboy" speakers, and is finished in black rather than silver.

The HT-7100DH ($500, March) is the top model in Sony's component-based home theater lineup. One of the receiver's two HDMI inputs is reserved for the included five-disc DVD changer, which offers 720p/1080i upscaling. The system also offers automatic speaker calibration and Sony's new Digital Media Port, which interfaces with a variety of accessories (available separately).

The entry-level HT-DDW790 (available in March) costs only $200, but offers automatic speaker calibration and an 8-inch subwoofer. It's up to you to supply the DVD player, however.

In addition to its two HDMI inputs, the HT-DDW990 ($300, May) boasts the same automatic speaker calibration and Digital Media Port found on other Sony home theater systems. But you'll need to supply your own DVD player.
