These high end players are made specifically for custom installers.
Tomorrow is the first day of the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association Expo, better known as CEDIA. It's like the CES of high-end gear, full of all that expensive stuff that you won't find at Best Buy.
Integra kicked things off with the announcement of two new Blu-ray players designed to complement the company's lineup of AV receivers and preamplifiers. Both the DBS-30.2 and 50.2 offer access to sources like Netflix and Blockbuster On Demand, but only the latter comes packed with video enhancing features.
The DBS-50.2 utilizes the Marvell Qdeo HD Video processor, which gives a better picture and much improved upscaling of standard definition content. The 50.2 also sports a more rigid construction and 7.1 channel analog audio output.
Both players are available now through authorized installers. The DBS-50.2 will run you $700, while the 30.2 comes in at $500.
