The DMP-BD55 is a high-end Blu-Ray player from Panasonic. Both the Panasonic DMP-BD55 and Panasonic DMP-BD35 are set to replace the DMP-BD30 and DMP-BD50 models which were released in early 2008. Almost the same as the lesser Panasonic DMP-BD35, the DMP-BD55 features 7.1 analog outputs and other audio enhancements. The player also includes an SD card slot for firmware upgrades, an Ethernet port for BD Live access and vibration-reducing feet to keep the player from bouncing during playback. Using Panasonic's UniPhier integrated video circuitry the BD-55 can transmit a full 1080p HD signal, while requiring 20% less wattage than it's previous matching models making for a more "environment" friendly device. The BD-55 also offers a decoding and bitstream of all the advanced audio codecs (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD High Resolution & Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus). The device has an MSRP of $399.95.
