Cool Onkyo DV-BD606 Pro Blu Ray player

http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/11/10...lu-ray-player/


From Engadget,



Onkyo finally launches $599 DV-BD606P "pro" Blu-ray player

Onkyo's had a long journey from HD DVD to Blu-ray, first giving an indication that it would produce a BD deck of its own this past February. This summer, we'd heard that the player would set buyers back a few bills, but that was back when players were all selling for a few bills. Now, the DV-BD606P has been introduced as a "professional" player, which essentially means that it's rack-mountable and needlessly expensive. It boasts all the usual suspects -- 1080p output, Dolby TrueHD / DTS-HD Master Audio decoding, DVD upconversion, Profile 1.1 support and an HDMI 1.3a port -- but we don't see anything in particular that justifies the $599 MSRP. Good luck marketing this one, Onkyo.


I just don't see why at this price range it's not a profile 2 player!

Unquestionably, this should be 2.0. No reason, and I`m a little surprised at onkyo. Normally, based on how well equipped their receivers are, you would think the same would be true here with the BD player.

Rack mountable is a poor excuse to call it pro.

I have been working for Onkyo as their Eastern Regional manager since 1990. This machine is a Panasonic. What Onkyo does is usually change many of the internal parts to their own specifications.
