    Tokyo (Japan) - Sony has once again delayed their BDP-S1 standalone Blu-Ray disc player. The player is now expected to ship on December 4th, 2006 for $1000. Originally announced back in March for a July release, Sony has repeatedly pushed the release to August, October and now December.

    The BDP-S1 is a small, living room-based player that produces true 1080 progessive output through an HDMI interface. Standard definition DVDs are upscaled to 1080p resolution. Audio-wise the player is no slouch and gives both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 surround sound at 192 khz at 24-bit sampling.

    You can pre-order the BDP-S1 player from Sony's website. For those who balk at spending the $1000 for the new BDP-S1, Sony is throwing in a free Blu-Ray enhanced copy of "The Fifth Element" movie.

    I wonder will it have HDMI 1.3 also. The new Toshiba HD-XA2 has both with a similar price point.
