Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray player review

 

The Sony BDP-S760 forms part of Sony's late-2009 announcements, offering all the normal Blu-ray niceties, as well as wide audio decoding and a whole host of connections on its rear end. But with the recent posturing from Sony setting up their newest...

Excellent picture quality, audio connections, Wi-Fi

Media support limited, slow starter

If it is just Blu-ray playback that interests you, then the BDP-S760 offers great visuals and with the new wave stacked against it, you may well be able to pick up a bargain

Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray player

 

The Sony BDP-S760 is a high-end Blu-ray player aimed squarely at movie buffs and discerning audiophiles.

Superb 1080p picture quality, 7.1ch analog audio, built-in Wi-Fi, surround sound headphone jack, user-friendly interface

Light on multimedia features, doesn't look 'high-end' enough

The Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray player puts sound and picture quality at the forefront. It also benefits from built-in Wi-Fi and a surround sound headphone jack, two features that set it apart from the pack.

Other decks may offer an array of bells, whistles, toots and whizzbangs, but this Sony refines the basics

Superlative video and audio performance ; Benefits from trickle down tech of its older sibling

Cheapish build quality ; Few other talents

The entire fascia of the Sony BDP-S760 opens up to reveal the disc tray

Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray Player

 

The BDP-S760 is by far the most impressive Sony Blu-ray player we've encountered to date.

Oddly, the deck can find and display your music and video folders but won’t recognise the files within them. Compare this with the BD390’s wealth of supported formats and Sony is left with egg on its face. It’s also worth mentioning that the BD390 also...

The PlayStation 3 is no longer the only Sony Blu-ray player you should consider buying. As well as offering an up-to-the-minute feature set, Sony's stand-alone BDP-S760 leaves the company's games console for dead in the all-important picture and sound...

Best Blu-ray performance you can get for less than £500 ; Features galore, including Wi-Fi connectivity ; Fast

No built-in storage memory ; Not as multimedia-savvy as the LG BD390

Conclusion Having recently seen LG's BD390, it's easy to knock the Sony BDP-S760 in terms of features. But there's no doubt that the BDP-S760 wins out when it comes to AV quality. If performance matters more to you than multimedia-playback capability...

Sony's latest Blu-ray spinner features built-in Wi-Fi and a tempting price tag. Is it the best value-for-money player yet?

Peerless performance at a more than reasonable price

The 'S760 is a remarkable achievement, delivering peerless performance at a more-than-reasonable price

Well-equipped; built-in wireless connectivity; stunning picture performance and startling sound quality

Nothing

Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray Player

 

If you're looking for a mid-priced Blu-ray player with top drawer performance, then look no further; apparently, Sony's BDP-S760 fits the bill…..

Released towards the end of last year, the BDP-S760 was Sony finally showing us what they could do with a Blu-ray player. It’s fair to say that the S760 doesn’t do a great deal, but what it does do is achieved with a huge amount of style and quality,...

Sony is looking to step up its Blu-ray game with the BDP-S760, the company's first standalone deck with built-in Wi-Fi. That makes it a breeze to access BD Live. Read our Sony BDP-S760 review and find out what other tricks it has up its sleeve.

Fantastic picture quality, Wi-Fi support and the slick operating system

Won't play MP3, WMA or DivX from USB or over a network and disc loading is s-l-o-w. No built-in memory

A step in the right direction, but not the killer Blu-ray proposition you get from LG or Panasonic
