Sharp BD-HP20U | AQUOS Blu-Ray Player

Sharps Aquos name will be familiar to many for their HDTV ranges, but not for any other home theater equipment, this makes the Sharp Aquos BD-HP20U the first Blu-ray player to grace the Aquos branding name. The “slim-profile of the BD-HP20U BD player will feature a HDMI 1.3 output. Capable of 720p/1080i/1080p and 1080p24 (24 fps), component output, Aquos Link, support for lossless audio formats and also DVD upscaling to full HD resolution of 1080p.

Unfortunately we don’t have a photo of the Sharp BD-HP20U just yet, but the player is apparently slim-line and has a classic modern piano black finish offering one of the slimmest players currently on the market. The Sharp Aquos BD-HP20U should be available in late September for $549.
