Product Overview:

* Includes optional multi-region Blu-ray modification fitted! *

With support for BD-3D, all the latest surround sound formats, QDEO video processing and Anagram Technologies audio up-sampling, the 751BD is a lightning-fast, easy to use player and is guaranteed to reproduce your movies and music with all the gusto of the original performance!

The only player you’ll ever need!
Featuring almost universal disc compatibility, the 751BD not only plays Blu-ray discs – including those with 3D content – but also CD, HDCD, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio and SACD.

Twin screen connection
With twin HDMI outputs, the 751BD can deliver video to multiple displays (such as a your 3D TV and your projector) and both are fully compatible with the HDMI 1.4 standard for 3DTV and Deep Colour support.

The primary HDMI output also features a high quality Marvell QDEO video scaler with motion adaptive noise reduction for quiet and natural video, free from noise and artefacts.

As well as stunning performance with Blu-ray discs, the 751BD delivers unbeatable picture quality from existing DVDs, which can also be up-scaled to 1080p resolution.

Comprehensive format support...
The 751BD supports decoding of the very latest formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. And for the ultimate in user choice, these formats can be output as bitstreams over HDMI for an AV receiver to decode internally.

An audiophile extravaganza...
However it is the 751BD’s musical performance that really sets it apart from its peers with genuinely uncontested audiophile credentials. A mouth watering specification including five Wolfson WM8740 24-bit/192kHz Digital to Analogue converters, Anagram Technologies Q5 192 kHz upsampling, a choice of digital filters and zealous attention to the design of audio circuits ensures the 751BD can reproduce the dynamics and scale required for the most elaborate movie soundtracks. The 751BD truly excels as an audio source supporting all high-resolution formats including DVD-A, SACD plus of course CD.


Designed for all the family...
With such a vast specification you might expect the 751BD to take some getting used to but you’ll be delighted to hear that’s not the case. Genuinely simple to use with essential operations available on the ergonomic front panel and more comprehensive control via a clear on-screen menu, the 751BD is as easy to operate as any ordinary player. In use it’s whisper quiet and lightning fast for delay-free access to your movies and music.

Aesthetics and premium build quality are further strengths and Cambridge Audio’s trademark wrap-around casework houses the 751BD’s proprietary engineering within a low resonance, acoustically damped chassis.

Supplied with a wireless dongle...
The 751BD is ready to connect to the internet via Ethernet or Wi-Fi and supports BD Profile 2.0 (BD-Live and BonusView) and other interactive features.

With an immense combination of multi-format capability, 3D video performance and spine-tingling audio capability, the 751BD is waiting to show you how Blu-ray can really perform!
