I am looking for a 3D Blu-ray disc player integrated with an audio amplifier for 5.1 channels or 7.1 channels. I can see some models in SONY HT Systems which includes the speakers and I do not want them as I have some 500-watt speakers already.

There are some models that play 3d Blu-ray discs but I’m not sure if it has an inbuilt amplifier.

Can someone suggest a model for my 3D LED TV? By the way, I already have a DVD Home theater system – DAV-TZ – 200.

Comments for BD Player with Built-in Amplifier:


I don’t think you will find an all-in-one home cinema system that has an integrated Blu-ray player and amplifier, without getting speakers with the package too.

Therefore, I think you have two choices.

  1. Sell your speakers and get an all-in-one package like the Sony systems you mention.
  2. Buy a Blu-ray player and an AV receiver. You can then connect your speakers to the AV receiver.

An AV receiver will allow you options to connect different devices in the future. You need to make sure the AV receiver is suitable for the specifications of your speakers, and it may be slightly easier if it supports HDMI 1.4 and 3D signals.

An entry-level AV receiver and Blu-ray player will not necessarily cost you much more than an all-in-one system – and often the sound quality you get will be better.

For example:


Yamaha RX-V371AV Receiver Yamaha RX-V4A 5.2-Ch AV Receiver

Panasonic DMP-BDT210 Blu-ray Player Sony BDP-BX370 1080p Blu-ray Player

It partly depends on the budget you have to play with.

My guide to the top Blu-ray players covers the latest models – from budget players to high-end 4K Blu-ray players.

And I explain all about using AV receivers for surround sound in my buying guide.

Hope that helps.
