Originally announced back in February, Panasonic says its second-gen Blu-ray player is now available, including a bevy of audio options and five free Blu-ray discs with purchase.
The new player (dubbed the DMP-BD10A) boasts an audio upgrade package that includes both Dolby True HD and DTS-HD.
Panasonic is offering the DMP-BD10A at SRP of $599.95, and to sweeten the offer is also including five pre-selected Blu-ray movies with each purchase: 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl,' 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest,' 'The Transporter,' 'Fantastic Four' and 'Crash.'
Cue the exec quote: "Panasonic is deeply committed to the success of Blu-ray," said Gene Kelsey, Vice President of Panasonic's Entertainment Group. "With the continuing flow of hit movie titles on Blu-ray, combined with aggressive pricing and the increasing awareness of consumers about the unique entertainment experience provided by high definition, the future looks very bright for Blu-ray."
