We liked Panasonic’s original Blu-Ray player, the DMP-BD10, but found it hard to love. While it showed hints of the format’s remarkable visual and aural talents, its DVD playback was disappointing and the wallet-pounding £1200 price tag was way too much.

The Panasonic is also one of the few Blu-ray players to sport 7.1 analogue outputs and overall it offers an open, dynamic and detailed sound that can compete with the best.
