LAS VEGAS--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 BDP-S570--building on the streaming media features of the BDP-N460.

Key features of the Sony BDP-S370:

  • HDMI 1.4 output
  • Access to the Bravia Internet Video platform, which includes Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, YouTube, Pandora, Slacker, and NPR streaming capability
  • Ethernet jack
  • DLNA compliant (with firmware update); capable of sharing photos, music and videos from a connected PC
  • Front panel USB port
  • Browse actor and movie information via Gracenote
  • Control via iPhone/iPod Touch
  • SACD-compatible
  • Onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio
  • Available in the spring of 2010, no pricing announced

Key step-up features of the Sony BDP-S570:

  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Streaming video noise reduction
  • Available in the spring of 2010, no pricing announced

We reviewed the Sony BDP-N460 just last month and were impressed with its wide variety of streaming media content and solid Blu-ray playback performance. The BDP-S570 addresses our biggest concern by adding built-in Wi-Fi, with the BDP-S370 presumably offering a cheaper option for those content with Ethernet.

Sony also introduced a 3D Blu-ray player at CES 2010, the BDP-S770.
