Onkyo planning Blu-ray launch

Onkyo logoOne of the few hardware manufacturers to actually release an HD DVD player will be releasing a Blu-ray player later this year. Onkyo’s previous high-def effort was a rebadged Toshiba player which sold so poorly they pulled their support for HD DVD within months.

While they have not released model or pricing information, the initial player will support all Blu-ray audio formats on board, and will feature HDMI 1.3 (this is pretty much standard now). Considering this is the extent of the information provided, I can only assume Onkyo will build this player and I’m sure we’ll see an Integra version shortly after release.
