Cambridge Audio has launched its latest 751BD 3D Blu-ray player at CES, as well as its first iPod/iPhone/iPad dock, the iD300.
The 751BD 3D Blu-ray player can handle all the latest HD audio formats, as well as QDEO video processing and Anagram Technologies audio upsampling.
The company claims it’s “the best sounding 3D Blu-ray player yet” and inside are no less than five Wolfson WM8740 24/192kHz DACs. Unusually, these days, there’s also support for HD audio formats such as DVD-Audio and SACD.
It can be connected to a Wi-Fi network (via a supplied wireless dongle) and includes 1GB internal storage with two USB connections for adding more memory and media playback.
There are also two HDMI outputs, permitting 3D video signals to be sent to two different displays at once.
Audio connections include 7.1 multichannel as well as dedicated stereo analogue outputs.
The Cambridge Audio 751BD will go on sale in the spring for £800.
Also available will be Cambridge Audio’s first iPod dock, the iD100. Made from aluminium, it can accommodate iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad and offers stereo analogue, balanced XLR and digital optical outputs.
There are also composite and S-video connections for transferring video too, and it connects to a PC or Mac for syncing with iTunes via USB.
The Cambridge Audio iD100 is also due in the spring when it will be available in silver or black for £150.
