The new player includes streaming options, 3D capabilities, and promises stellar Blu-ray playback.
The latest addition to the Aventage line is the BD-A1000 Universal Blu-ray player. In addition to what you'd normally find on a Blu-ray player, it includes Netflix, Blockbuster and YouTube streaming as well as two USB ports for playback of digitally stored content.
It plays back Blu-rays at 1080p/24 and boasts 7.1 channel analog outputs that utilize four 2-channel DACS. It can handle all the latest high definition audio formats and boasts solid audio performance.
"Home theater enthusiasts are demanding versatile content compatibility, and Yamaha offers the most versatile entertainment options," says Yamaha president Tom Sumner. "The new Yamaha AVENTAGE BD-A1000 highly enhances the visual and audio experience."
The BD-A1000 can be had at a price of $699.
