Sharp's new Blu-ray wireless player is WiSA-certified, ships this spring for $4,000

Sharp isn't only introducing an array of televisions at this year's CES. Today, the company also took the time to reveal a new Universal Player, its first to support the WiSA open standard. The SD-WH1000U, as it will be known by model name, can play CDs, SACDs, DVDs and Blu-rays wirelessly, with the accessibility side of things being complemented by two HDMI and three USB 3.0 ports -- yes, it can connect to the internet as well. Most important, however, is the fact that the Sharp Universal Player meets WiSA requirements, allowing you to seamlessly push out high-quality video and audio content (1080p resolution, 24-bit/96kHz uncompressed sound at 5.2-5.8 GHz range) without the need for any cords. Just don't expect this potential addition to your WiSA-friendly setup to be a cheap one, as it's set to be priced at a cool $4,000 once it begins shipping later this year.
