It may have come late to the party, but Toshiba is making up for it with a Blu-ray player that's as feature-rich and elegant-looking as anything in its high-definition product lineup.
The BDX2000 Blu-ray Disc Player supports BD-Live for interactive content and BonusView picture-in-picture capability, provides full HD 1080p digital output, and offers the Regza-Link function for single-remote operation with a compatible Toshiba LCD TV. The stylish player sports a faceted, smoked-mirror front panel that creates a clean, smooth look and drops down to reveal basic controls.
The progressive-scan Blu-ray player offers 24 fps video output to create a lifelike cinema experience, and enables DVD upscaling via HDMI to play standard DVDs in near-HD quality.
For owners of high-def camcorders, the BDX200 is capable of AVCHD playback of home movies. In addition, the unit offers JPEG playback of digital photos.
On the audio side, the Toshiba player supports enhanced formats including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS, and DTS-HD Master Audio for spectacular sound. What's more, the unit provides digital audio playback of MP3 and WMA files.
To ensure that the BDX2000 can be integrated easily into your existing home theater setup, there's a full complement of connections, including HDMI, component, composite, S-Video, optical and coaxial digital, and analog audio outputs. The Blu-ray player also includes an SD card slot with SDHC support, and an Ethernet port.
For stunning video and pure surround-sound audio, the Toshiba BDX200 Blue-ray Disc Player is a muscular and attractive component that was definitely worth the wait.
