Yamaha BD-S1065
Two new Blu-ray players on sale now, the £450 BD-S1065 and £550 BD-S1900

Spotted on the Yamaha stand here at Bristol is one of two new Blu-ray players, the £450 BD-S1065.

It's Profile 2.0, supports BD Live and Bonus View, has full HD audio decoding onboard and a 7.1 analogue output for connecting to older AV receivers.

Direct bitstream and multichannel linear PCM soundtracks can be output via HDMI, and the player uses 192kHz/24-bit audio DACs.

There's support for x.v. colour and Deep Colour, 1080p upscaling of standard-definition sources and HDMI CEC functionality.

Not on show here at Bristol, but also on sale now, is the £550 BD-S1900 Blu-ray player. The spec is similar to that of the 'S1065, with the added benefit of gold-plated terminals and a Pure Direct mode for music listening.
