Loewe BluTech Vision Blu-ray Player

by Nicole on April 17, 2008

The Loewe BluTech Vision Blu-ray player is the latest Blu-ray players and here’s what Trusted Reviews says about it: “If you’re looking for visual decadence then no-one does it quite like Loewe, and the BluTech Vision is yet another addition to its impressive portfolio of eye-catching kit. It’ll make a stylish addition to your system, particularly if that system is made up of matching Loewe kit, but despite its seductive exterior we’re not enamoured by what’s under the hood – the profile 1.0 specification and limited hi-res audio support are bad enough, but the poor multimedia compatibility, sluggish interface and patchy performance rub salt in the wound, particularly at this price. You’re better off buying the Panasonic DMP-BD30, which is a cheaper and more talented player that gets you many more features and Profile 1.1 capabilities into the bargain.” Not sure where this is selling, but the BluTech Vision Blu-ray player is going for £795.00. Which is a bit much if you ask me. [TrustedReviews]
