Default Sony unveils Blu-ray equipped HTP-BD2RSF HTIB system



Quote:
It was only a matter of time until Blu-ray hit the home theater in a box systems. Sony is taking their HT-SF2000 HTIB, adding the BDP-S300, and throwing in the BD Spider-Man trilogy for kicks. The system is built for HDMI, as the receiver has three inputs and one out, so besides speaker wire, users aren't going to have many cables to deal with. Plus, all that HDMI allows for auto-setup, in Sony's parlance: Digital Cinema Auto Calibration. HTIB systems have never been known for their sound quality and something tells us this 1000W system is going to be exactly top-notch, but that said, if priced right, it could be a great option for some with limited budget and a need for Blu-ray. The HTP-BD2RSF is currently announce for the European market only at an unknown sum, but something tells us that Sony is going to drop sometime very similar at CEDIA next week.

It's never a good sign when the video player is larger than the receiver. hehe. However, I could see this being very attractive to those who haven't jumped into HD movies or home theater audio yet.

Depending on how much it is, it could be a perfect product to lure some people into Blu-ray. If it's like $600-700, then this could sell pretty well. Unfortunately, it's far more likely to be $1000.

I'd say probably closer to $1500.
