Onkyo readies 500 DV-BD606 Blu-ray player for October release

Darren Murph

We're not exactly savvy on what's so special about October 2008, but Onkyo has just become the second manufacturer in the last week to announce a Blu-ray player that will ship in that month. Granted, the firm hasn't made this official or anything just yet, but according to an on-the-scene report from WhatHiFi, the outfit is indeed moving forward with plans for a £500 ($990) Profile 1.1 Blu-ray player -- just as was rumored earlier this year. Regrettably, that's all that we know outside of its model number (DV-BD606), but it is apt to be a part of a "three-strong" video-player lineup when it surfaces this Fall. For those interested, you can hit the read link for a few juicier tidbits about the company's forthcoming receiver lineup, but you'll go hungry searching for more details on this here unit.
