While the CES 2011 has seen plenty of announcements from Microsoft, Sony has also put a smile on its fans’ faces by announcing its brand new range of Blu-ray players and the latest home cinema systems for release in 2011. For your information, the newly announced Blu-ray players include: BDP-S380, BDP-S480 and BDP-S580. Also, four new home cinema systems that were made part of this announcement are: BDV-E280, BDV-E380, BDV-E880 and BDV-E780W. BDP-580 is equipped with Blu-Ray support as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. On the contrary, BDP-S380 comes equipped with Wi-Fi but lacks 3D Blu-Ray support whereas the BDP-480 is geared with 3D Blu-Ray support and misses on the Wi-Fi capabilities.
Speaking of the Home Cinema Systems that Sony has been privileged to have introduced, the internet-ready BDV 780W comes with desktop speakers and offers 3D surround sound. On the other hand, BDV-E880 is powered with 3D-surround sound aided by dual tallboy speakers and features two HDMI ports also.
