Cambridge’s new system has universal appeal.

The new Azur 650BD isn’t just a full-featured Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player. It’s a universal disc player that supports playback of the high-resolution SACD and DVD-Audio formats.

At the show, Cambridge is showing off the new player mated with its counterpart, the Azur 650R A/V receiver. This 7.1-channel receiver offers 100 watts per channel, analog to digital video transcoding, RS-232 control, second- and third-zone A/V output, and Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding.

The 650BD, meanwhile, has the needed Ethernet connection to play BD-Live Web content. It offers internal decoding and bitstream output of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, as well as 7.1-channel analog audio outputs. Dual USB ports are on board for playback of digital media files. For the audio enthusiasts, the player sports a pure audio mode that shuts down the video processing functions to help ensure the best signal processing and performance.
