Sony BDP-S500 Blu-ray Player

Sony has announced the Sony BDP-S500 Blu-ray Player, which seems to be an upgraded / higher spec BDP-S300 player. The BDP-S500 is very similar to the S300, design and size wise, but in addition offers HDMI 1.3, instead of the standard HDMI v1, and supports x.v Color, and also True HD and DTS-HD1 audio. So if you very much want the extra audio options, you might be tempted by the S500 over the S300, but it will cost you roughly £200 or $400 more.
