This is a discontinued model but doesn't mean it isn't a bargain at this price. New firmware releases for it (New one last week)

As well as HDMI has an option for 7.1 analogue sound for anyone with a legacy amp, plays MKV on NTFS formatted disc and inbuilt wireless. Bluray and DVD playback is excellent . Gets very positive reviews and have owned mine for 18 months and think it is a great piece of kit and cheapest I have seen it in over 2 years

RicherSounds Blurb

With Blu-ray discs you can enjoy movies as they were supposed to be seen; in glorious high definition, packed full of detail.

The uncompressed sound quality is another benefit available from this LG Blu-ray player. As with other Blu-ray players, the LG BD390 will playback your existing DVDs to a very high standard. In fact, provided you have a suitable TV, it can upscale them to 1080p, for even greater levels of clarity. Where the LG BD390 Blu-ray player scores over some of its rivals is in being able to playback not only DivX discs but MKV files, too. MKV files are High Definition videos downloadable from the Internet.

There are plenty of other features that make this a great Blu-ray player to own. A fast loading time of just 18 seconds takes the frustration out of watching films. Furthermore, the USB connection lets you play music or show photos via the player, through to your TV.

Like other quality Blu-ray players, the BD390 offers BD-Live technology for enhanced features. Connect the BD390 to your Broadband connection and you can download extra content from the film you're watching. Other benefits include access to videos from YouTube - without having to switch on your computer. Where the BD390 scores over many rivals is in featuring a Wi-Fi connection as standard. Connect wirelessly to your home network and enjoy all the benefits of BD-Live, without the cables.

Once again, LG have produced a Blu-ray player with class-leading features and the performance and style to match. A class act.

Which model was that? I thought the 390 was their top player, with ntfs playback and built-in wifi.

I've got the 370 which has neither of those - the wifi isn't a problem (mine is hardwired into my LAN) but not having the ntfs is a pain with some of the bigger mkv files.

:(

So yours has 7.1 channel analogue sound option? and you got it half the price you got a real bargain

I have used or owned LG BD390 BD570 and BX580 and the 390 is the best of them all imho but they are all pretty good to be honest, depends what you need or want from your player.

You know if it isn't a Sony bluray player a lot of people will usually vote it cold on here I expect that, but still posted it for people who recognise this as a highly rated machine at a good price

But from somebody who owns an LG and not understanding the difference in the machines and voting cold just because yours was half the price, you don't name your model but I would be very very surprised if it could do everything this machine can hence the price difference in different models....

I guess people who are voting this cold do not understand the importance (and the expense) of 7.1 Analogue equipped Blu Ray Players which are few and far between.

You can easily pick up a HDMI only decent branded Blu Ray Player for sub £100, but for those that have a decent older AV Receiver that requires analogue multichannel inputs in order to receive uncompressed audio that Blu Rays can give it sure is more economical spending the extra £50 on this than buying a new receiver.

The dent has already been done in people voting this cold, I doubt my 7 degrees of heat are going to matter to the sheep that just see a deal going cold and further voting cold, but I do wish people would have a more technical understanding of electricals before voting cold.

If anyone finds an ANALOGUE Multichannel Blu Ray Player of the same or better spec cheaper, then vote this cold by all means, and be complimentary enough to post a link to the better player.

Does this mean you can use this player on a 5.1 DDS amp?
I was going to buy the Sony BPD S370, tomorrow would I be better with the LG

Providing that your 5.1 amplifier has multichannel analogue inputs for both the front speakers, the centre speaker, the two rears and subwoofer to allow the analogue signals then yes. If your 5.1 amp doesn't have multichannel analogue inputs then clearly nope.

If you want to take advantage of uncompressed Dolby True HD or DTS HD, it is the only way. If you just want to maintain the DTS/5.1 audio from Blu Ray disks instead then opt for the cheaper Sony 370, and hook it up via optical or coaxial digital.

Depends whether you want to take advantage of having totally uncompressed audio, how decent your existing setup is for sound is the most important for this, else you would not hear much difference to be honest.

And the numpties that clearly do not understand a thing about Home Cinema continue to vote this cold!

Once again, for those that are clueless and just connect a Blu Ray Player via a HDMI lead (yeah you know that connection you recently learned about) directly to their TVs, then you can get a cheaper Blu Ray Player for your needs, you don't have to worry yourselves in the importance of Bitstream or PCM audio and what receivers support what, or even think about the convenience of wifi over BD Live, then you numpties are going to keep voting cold.

If you do vote cold, please consider googling a suitable wi-fi equipped multichannel analogue audio Blu Ray player of comparable spec!

I find most things on here that require intimate knowledge of a sort are usually responded with ill informed comments at best, and normally a cold vote.
