Denon S-5BD receiver gets update

[CES 2010] The Denon S-5BD is not only a 5.1-channel receiver, but it also comes with a built-in Blu-ray player. One question though – would you fork out $1,799 for an integrated device such as this instead of saving some money while owning a similar or better receiver and a PS3? The answer really depends on how much space your living room has, alongside whether you prefer convergence devices or not. The S-5BD boasts a trio of HDMI inputs, an optional iPod control dock and 2-zone audio distribution. One thing that ought to be noted is this – there is a need to purchase yet another separate amplifier if you want to its 7.1-channel analog outputs, as though you haven’t spent enough on this already.
