From my widget. . . Goldmund, a Swiss A/V manufacturer, has announced the Eidos 20 BD, an ultra
high-end Blu-ray Disc player. The player will feature many Goldmund proprietary technologies, including "AC Curator", a power supply circuit which dramatically improves picture and sound stability, "Mechanical Grounding" construction, which removes from the player mechanism spurious vibrations that cause blurring of the video signal, and "Magnetic Damper", a device used to lower reading errors. Michel Reverchon, president of Goldmund commented, "As a result of last week's news in regards to the format wars, Goldmund decided to launch the Eidos 20 BD earlier than we had originally planned to capture the attention of the industry that believes in the superior technological merits of the Blu-ray format. The Blu-ray player is the perfect addition to our Goldmund Media Room, which requires high-definition playback and is the pinnacle of technological excellence."

Goldmund has begun taking orders for the machine, which will retail for $16,900.
What a farce, but leave to the Swiss to satisfy the petrodollar clients, they make it in gold as well.
