Onkyo Introducing First HD DVD Player
In a surprise move, Onkyo USA announced this week that it will introduce its first HD DVD player. When it’s released this fall the new player, called the DV-HD805, will be the only HD DVD-exclusive high-def player on the market from a manufacturer other than Toshiba.
Onkyo is releasing the player in order to partner up with its already-introduced A/V receiver lineup. It also comes compatible with HDMI Version 1.3a, and as well as various lossless surround sound formats.
The DV-HD805 will be released this fall, at a starting price of $899.
