Samsung has taken the wraps off its first standalone Profile 1.1 Blu-ray player, the fourth-gen BD-P1500.
Like Samsung's third-gen player (the BD-P1400, released last fall), the BD-P1500 will carry an Ethernet port for firmware upgrades, but company says it is not certified BD Live, meaning it will not support web-enabled features included on certain discs.
The BD-P1500 will also feature bitstream audio output of 7.1 PCM, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution and Master Audio via HDMI.
Due this June, the BD-P1500 is expected to retail for $399.
