Sony BDP-S550
4.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Sep 19, 2009

The Sony BDP-S550 is one of the newest Blu-ray players to be released by Sony, and the first player by Sony to support the Profile 2.0 standard. The player features BD-Live, PiP, 1GB of storage, and 7.1 discrete analog outputs. It is the successor of the BDP-S500. The biggest difference between this higher-end model and the S350 is the inclusion of on-board HD audio decoding with 7.1 analog outs. Released in North America on October 8th 2008, the player caries a $400 price tag. Features Profile 2.0 player BD-Live 1GB storage + USB for external storage PiP (BonusView) 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema output Standard DVD playback with 1080p upscaling via HDMI 7.1 channel Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus decoding dts-HD High Resolution Audio and Master Audio bit-stream output 7.1 channel analog audio output Support for AVCHD discs Compatible with D-R/RE (BDMV and BDAV modes), DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW, CD, CD-R/RW (CD-DA ...
