Dissected: SONY BDP-S350 Blu-ray Player

In round two of our new Blu-ray “Dissected” series, we take a look at the just released SONY BDP-S350 Blu-ray player. The BDP-S350 has an MSRP of $399, and should be hitting retailers shelves any day now (Amazon has it in stock now).

The BDP-S350 uses the same ” Sigma SMP8634 RevC” chipset as the Samsung BD-P1400, which not surprisingly has the same audio capabilities as the BDP-S350.

Although the BDP-S350 is Profile 1.1 right now, the player can be upgraded to BD-Live in the future (you will need to provide a USB memory stick to bring the player up to the 1GB level that’s in the BD-Live specs).

The Player can Bitstream all advanced audio codecs via HDMI 1.3, and can internally decode all codecs except DTS-HD MA and HR.

Now for the good stuff, the pictures of the inside of the BDP-S350!

    Are you sure about the BDP-S350 using the Sigma Part? My understanding was that it used the new NEC Chip……
