As well as playing 3D-encoded Blu-ray discs, the BD-SP809 plays virtually all the major types of CD and DVD--including those encoded with popular compressed formats such as DivX HD, MP3, and WMA. Furthermore, it features a USB port that enables users to play audio and video files from a USB mass storage device.

Owners with a local network set-up in their home can use the BD-SP809 to incorporate videos, music, and photos sent from a DLNA 1.5-certified media server.

The Onkyo BD-SP809 video-on-demand capabilities allow consumers to stream movies and TV shows directly to their TVs in HD or SD quality video through the Netflix, Blockbuster, Film Fresh, and VUDU services.

Video sources played through the BD-SP809 are rendered with superb image quality. Onboard Qdeo technology from Marvell ensures pristine deinterlacing, noise-reduction, and 1080p upscaling. Meanwhile, the player's twin HDMI outputs allow users to switch easily between two displays, such as a main TV for casual viewing and a projector for movies and sports.

The Onkyo BD-SP809 will be available in August with a suggested retail price of $599.
