The P1500 has BD Profile 1.1 Bonus View and is BD Live Ready. With its built-in Ethernet connection and USB input users can quickly upgrade their BD-P1500 with the latest firmware which ensures the player remains at the cutting edge of Blu-ray technology.
Additionally, true audiophiles will love the BD-P1500 for going beyond standard Dolby Digital audio playback to include Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TruHD and DTS-HD High resolution (scheduled to available later this year via firmware update).
The BD-P1500 will be available in June 2008 and will retail for around 550 US dollars, which is a bit pricey, but after all, latest technology always seems to be on the expensive side, isn't it?
