Marantz Blu-Ray by April?

An extremely high-end Blu-Ray player from Marantz may ship by April, a new announcement suggests. Marantz's parent company, D&M Holdings, has revealed that "additional [Blu-Ray] models" should ship in the fourth quarter of FY07, which for D&M ends on March 31st of this year. While this likely includes at least one Blu-Ray player from the Denon brand, Marantz is known to be working on the the BD8002, a machine originally announced for the second calendar quarter of this year at CES.

The 8002 uses a 10-bit Silicon Optix Realta chipset, and among other things supports the Blu-Ray 1.1 profile, HDMI 1.3, and up to 7.1 channels of surround sound through codecs like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. File formats such as MP3, WMA and DivX are being carried, but any computer content -- including games -- must be copied either to a DVD- or BD-R/RW disc, or else an SD card for the player's built-in reader. Pricing is currently set at $2,100. [via Blu-ray.com]
