The BD-SP808 is the final piece of Onkyo's new group of THX certified separates. Just like the preamp/processor and power amplifier, it's built with video and audio quality in mind. Onkyo's BD-SP808 is slick looking, with a nicely understated design. It features a center mounted drive and a rigid chassis that's designed to eliminate the harm that can come from vibrations.
On the inside, you'll find the Marvel Qdeo video scaler that will take standard definition DVDs on up to 1080p. As you'd expect, the BD-SP808 handles the various Blu-ray audio formats as well as features like BD Live. In addition to physical media, Onkyo's new player handles digital media thanks to DLNA 1.5 compatibility and access to Video on Demand. The BD-SP808 will be available later this month at an MSRP of $599.
