BD-A1000 "universal Blu-ray player"

Yamaha has introduced the BD-A1000, a "universal Blu-ray player" that pairs an optical drive with streaming capabilities. The device allows users to play Blu-ray discs, DVDs, SACDs, DVD Audio discs or web-based media such as Netflix, YouTube and Blockbuster. Dual USB ports can also be used to attach an external hard drive or thumb drive.

Full HD Audio decoding is supported, with four two-channel DACs that split the signal into a 7.1-channel analog output. Users can access AVCHD, WMV, JPEG, MP3 and WMA files on attached drives or optical discs.

The BD-A1000 is now available for $700. [via HotHardware]

    Awesome gadget!

    This is really a great news considering most homes today already have internet-readyBlu-ray players in them. But what if you want to enjoy streaming from Netflix but your devices and wireless router are in separate rooms in the house? Don't worry, you can still enjoy this with the help of Netgear's Universal WiFi Internet Adapter. This WiFi adapter is compatible with most internet-ready devices such as TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, and more. You can also use it to connect notebooks, wireless printers, and other networked home theater devices.
