Sony Australia today announced the release of three new Blu-ray players: the BDP-S360, BDP-S560 and BDP-S760.

The BDP-S560 and BDP-S760 will both feature wireless connectivity for BD-Live (Profile 2.0). This will allow users to access Blu-ray media and other online content without an Ethernet cable. The BDP-S560 and BDP-S760 will also feature USB photo playback (via a front-mounted port), DLNA photo streaming and 7.1-channel audio decoding.

In addition to these features, the flagship Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray player will also offer 7.1 analog audio outputs, Precision Cinema HD upscaling, gold-plated terminals and an integrated headphone jack for virtual surround sound. This simulates the sound of a home theatre setup when using a pair of headphones.

The entry-level BDP-S360 boasts a 6-second start-up time for Blu-ray movie playback and improved DVD upscaling to 1080p.

Sony Australia's Paul Colley said that the new features offered by the BDP-S760 and BDP-S760 were designed to give consumers a greater entertainment experience in their living rooms. "The [Blu-ray] experience is enhanced with additional features such as Bonus View and BD Live via Wi-Fi,” Colley said.

The Sony BDP-S360, Sony BDP-S560 and Sony BDP-S760 are available now for recommended retail prices of $449, $549 and $729, respectively.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
