The Toshiba BDX5200 works out some of the kinks that appeared in the BDX3000 we reviewed some time ago, but although it offers strong performance as an entry-level 3D Blu-ray player, it still has some issues that leave it a somewhat frustrating player to use.
Marantz takes aim at its competitors with this entry-level universal Blu-ray disc player that does Blu-ray 3D and just about every other format one could imagine, but how does it stack up to other players given its $600 price tag?
Denon has introduced an unusual piece, the S-5BD, which combines a top-notch Blu-ray player with a high performing A/V Receiver. This "ray-ceiver" acquitted itself well in both viewing and listening tests. A smart solution to home theater systems limited in space and for those desiring simple set up and operation.
