Blu-Ray, Perfected 

The old adage says “good things come in small packages,” and the Sony BDP-S1700 Wired Streaming Blu-ray Disc Player is a perfect embodiment of the expression. This fast-loading, compact Blu-ray player is loaded with capabilities to show almost any form of entertainment you can imagine in stunning detail.  

Highest Quality Picture

You can enjoy all of your entertainment in full High Definition quality, making the detail amazing. TRILUMINOS color technology allows the viewer to see the most vivid colors imaginable. The BDP-S1700 will upgrade all of your DVDs to HD perfection and take full advantage of your Sony TV's imaging capabilities.  

High Definition Sound

Dolby True HD sound means you will get movie theater sound on all forms of entertainment, including internet downloads. All you’ll need is the popcorn and soda and you get the full multiplex experience without the price. And, you’ll get it all in the luxury of your own home. 

Versatile and Powerful 

Of course this device plays Blu-rays and DVDs, but the streaming possibilities are near endless. Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, Amazon video and Pandora are a mere click away and easy to find. The apps are simple to pilot on your TV screen and there’s a designated area to keep your preferred apps. Gamers can enjoy hours of play with hundreds of stored PlayStation 3 games. All you’d need is the controller. No console required.

You could leave it all up to Sony to provide hours of entertainment. However, you can display your own videos, or photos on the big screen, as well as play your own digital music library. It’s as simple as hooking up a USB storage device to the BDP-S1700 Wired Streaming Blu-ray Disc Player’s front USB port. 

Simple to Use

The design of this unit is simple, but sophisticated. It’s all black which makes it an easy fit style-wise, and at a little over 9” x 1.5,” it will fit easily anywhere in the living room, family room, play room or bedroom. Only a Sony Blu-ray player can provide this level of convenience. 

Boot it up and Watch

Did you ever wonder why it sometimes takes so long to load your Blu-ray or disc? Let’s not dwell on the technical reason, because it’s not a concern with the BDP-S1700. With fast-loading technology and Quick Start mode, this machine boots up in less than a second! Sneeze and your machine is ready to perform.
