Sharp BD-HP20U Blu-ray player “discs loading in 10 seconds”

There are a whole bunch of Blu-ray players being announced at CEDIA, but for the most part there’s not too much to differentiate them. Sharp’s new Blu-ray player, the BD-HP20U, the company’s first ever and while it’s mostly the same as other players, the press release claims that it will load Blu-ray discs in ten seconds. For those of you not used to the sluggish speeds of high-def media, that’s very fast — we’re used to it taking closer from 40 seconds to well over a minute on other high-def players.

We definitely love the Quick Start mode, but we’re disappointed that the BD-HP20U doesn’t offer bitstream output for DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks.
