Leaked: Archos 2 and Archos 4 portable media players

If you’re a fan of Archos’ brand of MP3 and video players – and lots of people are – then you might be at least moderately excited by the news that some pictures of new models have just leaked. Well, if you call ‘being put up on Amazon‘ leaked.

The specs aren’t anything to run through the streets, naked and screaming, about. There’s 8GB capacity for the “2”, MicroSD slot and 1.8″ display. It’s only .35 inches thick, though, and costs a similarly miniscule $60. I’d imagine that’ll probably translate directly over to £50 to £60, especially as a 16GB version has hit Amazon DE for €68.

Pioneer introduces BDP-LX91 Blu-ray player

pioneer-bdp-lx91.jpg

Pioneer is launching another Blu-Ray player, called the BDP-LX91. The company is referring to it as its ‘flagship’ player, and for good reason – it’s got a freshly-developed 16-bit video engine which will perform decoding, conversion, scaling and other adjustments at a rapid pace, as well as upscaling DVD content to 1080p.

As well as lovely video, the player delivers crisp audio with 7.1 channel Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and bit stream output. There’s dual HDMI outputs, too, and it’s been certified as sounding really rather good by none other than legendary Beatles producer George Martin’s AIR studios.

This player’s available now, but it’ll set you back £1,700. Ouch. Still, it’s a damn fine machine, and if you’re even considering it, then you won’t bat an eyelid at that price.

Onkyo, which made its high definition disc player debut on the HD DVD side last year, has finally launched its own Blu-ray player.

Focusing far more on video and audio quality than on the newer interactive features of Blu-ray, this Profile 1.1-compliant player offers full 1080p playback including 24fps “film mode”, Deep Colour via HDMI, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats including direct bitstream output via HDMI or 7.1-channel audio output, and superb audio quality thanks to a 192kHz/24-bit DAC from Burr-Brown…
