Sony Announces Three New 3D Ready 2.1 Channel Blu-ray Systems for Europe

Posted Thu Apr 7, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Each offers streaming video, an iPhone dock, and more.

Sony's new 2.1 channel Blu-ray player/home theater systems are pretty slick for those that don't want to fill their rooms with speakers or deal with complicated setups.

The cheapest of the bunch is the BDV-EF200. It features a 3D ready Blu-ray player, a pair of HDMI inputs, an iPhone dock and the ability to stream music and videos via Bravia Internet Video. You can pick up a wireless adapter to get Wi-Fi, but the functionality isn't built in.

Going up a step you can pick up the BDV-L600, which is far superior in the looks department and offers smart phone control, and a universal remote. It also boasts the ability to stream from your PC, instead of just from the net.

The top of the line offering is the BDV-L800, which embraces Sony's monolithic design. It's the only one of the bunch to offer Wi-Fi built right in.

All of these systems have been announced for Europe, but there's no information yet on whether we'll be seeing them in the States.
