The BD7004 is a 2nd Generation Blu-ray player offering the full Profile2.0 / BD-Live specification. The new design, with centred mechanism, perfectly complements the Marantz receiver and amplifier line up. In addition to astonishing picture quality from Blu-ray (24fps) the BD7004 gives your DVDs a higher quality boost – thanks to Anchor Bay’s VRS™ video processing, which outputs 1080p from standard material via the HDMI 1.3a port. On the audio side, the BD7004 has a 7.1 decoder for all major HD-audio formats including Dolby True HD and DTS HD. And for the purist who enjoys music from CDs a Pure Direct Mode helps ensure outstanding quality audio reproduction. To further extend quality, the additional top-cover metal plate helps minimize vibration for a highly stable sound stage and more detailed image.
