Quite simply, the Sony BDV-E370 gives you more for less. Packed into this amazing value package is a 3D compatible Blu-ray player, twin, iPod compatible, USB sockets, an FM tuner, a powerful home cinema receiver with support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD and a 5.1 speaker pack. In short, the Sony BDVE370 wants for nothing.
At the heart of this system lies a particularly impressive Blu-ray player. When it comes to Blu-ray, Sony is at the forefront of the technology. The Blu-ray built-in to the BDVE370 gives stunning results - just as you'd expect from a Sony. Vibrant, sharp and smooth running with fast motion, the BDVE370 delivers a first class video performance.
Although not as good as a separate AV system, the Sony's audio is excellent for a one-box home cinema product. With a total power output of 850 watts, the BDVE370 delivers a powerful performance. The small speakers create a spacious sound stage while the subwoofer copes well with dynamic soundtracks.
Yet it's in terms of features where the Sony really scores. In addition to being 3D compatible, the BDVE370 will also play a wide range of discs, including DivX HD, WMV and JPEG files. Sony's BRAVIA Internet connection lets you tap into a wide range of Apps via your home network hub. Connect via Ethernet or use an optional wireless dongle and you can access content such as the BBC iPlayer. Added to this, DLNA support lets you stream music or video from other sources connected to your network, such as laptops, PCs or a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive. If you just fancy listening to music you can use the Blu-ray drive to play CDs, listen to your iPod via a USB socket or simply turn on the FM radio. Either way, the sound quality is impressive by all-in-one standards.
The Sony BDVE370 B.1 Blu-ray Package System with HDMI inc. Speakers costs only £279.95, a price net of VAT Cashback from Sony. It is on sale at Richersounds.
