BD-SP353 – new Blu-ray player from Onkyo

Written by


Onkyo Introduce a new Blu-ray player in gently middleclass. BD-SP353 replaces the 5 year old model BD-SP309.


It is obvious that Blu-ray players are no longer the main priority area for the Japanese electronics giants. There is probably only Sony that still has annual product launches in this sector, and there we are talking mostly about the class for light featherweight.



Onkyo had their previous model release approximately five years ago. It was then the models BD-SP309 and top model BD-SP809 wthat entered the arena. The newcomer this year named BD-SP353 will obviously replace the smallest of these - BD-SP309. It is a slimline BD player in moderate middle class and will get a price tag at 249 Euro.

The player has an Ethernet Connection, and is thus compatible with BD-live. BD-SP353 follow Onkyo`s tradition of not supporting SACD. In return, the support HighRes audio files streamed in formats Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio ™.
