It can also play standard-definition DVDs and upconvert them to higher resolutions (more on that below).Unlike Sony's Play Station 3 and Sony's older BDP-S1, the BDP-S300 doesn't support SACD, nor does it support the other niche high-resolution disc format, DVD-Audio (which the Panasonic DMP-BD10A supports).
Excellent condition, fully tested and works excellent. 1 scratch on the top (pictured)Sony BDP-S301 Blu-Ray Disc Player In excellent condition, has been fully tested and works excellent with no issues.

Editors' Note, October 10, 2008: Since this review was published, Sony has released a firmware update that adds Dolby True HD decoding and is said to offer improved BD Java compatibility.
We're not sure why Sony decided to ditch SACD support, a feature that would certainly appeal to the enthusiast market.
The BDP-S300 can play standard audio CDs, along with MP3 and JPEG files burned on CDs and DVDs.
The only major omission we felt was missing was an Ethernet port for firmware updates, which is included on the Samsung BD-P1200.
