Samsung's upcoming BD-P2500
Blu-ray player promises BD-Live
support out of the box when it ships in October, with its IFA announcement revealing identical specs and price ($499) to the Best Buy-exclusive BD-P2550
already on sale. Of course, with HQV
video processing and a wealth of audio support including 7.1 analog output and PCM or bitstream audio for Dolby Digital, Digital Plus, TrueHD or dts soundtracks, and DTS-HD HR (after a firmware update) and DTS-HD MA bitstream support, that's not an entirely bad thing. Samsung, Panasonic
, it's taken you this many generations to get a satisfactory spec sheet, now what about the price?
