Sherwood BDP-6003

I was surprised to learn that Sherwood is introducing three new Blu-ray players at CEDIA. The BDP-6003, shown here atop the new RD-7503 AVR, is the only one that conforms to Profile 2.0 and provides a 5.1-channel analog output for $500. The other two are Profile 1.1—the BDP-5003 has a 2-channel output for $350 and the BDP-7003 has a 7.1-channel output for $450.
