Sony is launching its most comprehensive range of Blu-ray home cinema systems for the European market to date, with a range of seven new models designed to suit a wide array of customers’ needs.

At the top of the the new range with features such as Full 1080p HD video, 1080p DVD upscaling, Virtual 7.1-channel  and wireless rear speaker capability are three all-in-one systems, the BDV-E300, BDV-E800W, and BDV-Z7 .

Sony says the systems will upscale existing DVDs to “near FullHD resolution,” and have Sony’s Virtual 7.1-channel sound “for a complete wraparound audio experience without filling the room with speakers.”  A real 7.1 set-up is possible with the wireless upgrade kit WAHT-SBP1 which comes with an amplifier and two additional speakers.

The BDV-E300 uses five compact satellite speakers for the main channels plus a subwoofer, and offers wireless operation of the rear speakers with the addition of the WAHT-SA1 optional amplifier. The step-up BDV-E800W comes with four floorstanding speakers front and rear left and right channels, the same standard subwoofer as the BDv-E300, and two wireless rear speakers standard.

Also perched at the top of the range alongside the BDV-E300 andBDV-800W is the BDV-Z7. The BDV-Z7 offers most of the features of the two systems above, but with a compact design and a 2.1-channel format generating surround sound using Sony’s S-Force Front Surround technology. This gives a virtual 5.1 surround sound experience without the need for rear speakers.

The BDV-Z7 is rated has a 350W power output, supports BD-Live, 24p and x.v.Colour, Full HD (1080p) video with the latest HD audio codecs (DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High Resolution,Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD) 1080p upscaling for DVDs, BRAVIA Sync and a Digital Media Port.
