Onkyo DV-BD507 Blu-ray Player


It wasn't but about 18 months ago that Blu-ray players were still considered high end devices, selling mostly to enthusiasts, videophiles, and the like. Recently, the market for these players has really taken off, mostly due to the big box retailers...

On the one hand, the DV-BD507 is incredibly easy to set up and use. It has the ability to output a bitstream of the high resolution audio formats over the HDMI connection. It allows you to easily view AVCHD files saved on an SD card. On the other hand,...

Onkyo DV-BD507


At its current price, I can't think of a lot of reasons to recommend this unit. If it were priced about $100 less on the street, it would be a fairly good value. All that aside, if you're familiar with Onkyo's reputation, you might want to buy it for...

Onkyo DV-BD 507


Excellent movie picture., BD-Live support., Multimedia playback from SD cards., Bitstream output of HD audio.

Fans are too loud., Weaknesses in DVD de-interlacing., No internal memory for BD-Live downloads.

Onkyo has fitted this, its second, Blu-ray player with sensible features such as BD-Live and picture controls, which earn the device some applause. But the DV-BD 507 also earns some booing for its weak playback of DVDs with no progressive flag. Still,...

Onkyo DV-BD507 Blu-Ray Player Reviewed


Onkyo's new DV-BD507, the company's second Blu-ray player, adds BD-Live support but lacks streaming video-on-demand and wireless network connectivity. With an MSRP of $449, this player is a more cost-effective solution than Onkyo's previous Blu-ray...

The DV-BD507 supports 1080p/24 playback of Blu-ray discs ; The player has internal Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and can pass these formats in bitstream form over HDMI ; It supports BD-Live Web content and can play picture-in-picture...

The DV-BD507 lacks multichannel analog audio outputs, so it's not the best choice for someone who owns an older, non-HDMI A/V receiver ; This player does not support any type of video-on-demand or music streaming, nor does it feature a wireless option...

Onkyo fans now have a BD-Live player to mate with their Onkyo receivers, and the DV-BD507's $449 price is more competitive than the company's previous Blu-ray offering. However, this model lacks some features, like wireless network connectivity and...

Great player, great price!


This player is outstanding, easy to use, and it upconverts standard DVDs to near Blue Ray quality image. The picture on Blue Ray is unbelievable on my Mitsubishi DLP 67, and sound quality is excellent. Buy now at this price, I even got free shipping.

Expensive and disappointing funai clone from Onkyo


SUMMARY: The Onkyo DV BD507 shares a similar uncomfortable position with the Harman Kardon BDP-1: The MSRP of $449 or $499 for this player is comical in this marketplace. This player makes sense around $250 and struggles to make a value propositon for...


Very Expensive, Lacks 7.1 Analogues, slow load times, mediocre dvd upsconversion
