Harman Kardon Jumps on the Blu-ray Player BandwagonS

Known mostly for its lavish—and expensive—home theater gadgets, Harmon Kardon will be releasing its first Blu-ray player, the BDP 10, sometime in May for $940.

The BDP 10 will be able to play back 1080p/24 video, and will also support BD-Live and BonusView capabilities for Blu-ray movies that contain that extra online content. Also, not only will the player have the standard analog audio outputs, but also it will come equipped with coaxial and optical audio outputs, HDMI v1.3a, a composite video output, USB ports, and an Ethernet jack.

Although the May release of the BDP 10 is for Europe only, Harman Kardon is expected to announce a release date for North American sometime soon. [Harman Kardon via Electronista]
