IFA 2012 Halle 3.2 Stand 119. Syabas have their new A-400 on display, full working and its looks very good indeed!
ITs utilising the new Sigma 8911 Chipset with XVP processing and should be available sometime in September and should retail at 289 Euros, though UK pricing has still to be announced.
As well as sporting the new 8911 chipse (800Mhz dual core processort, the A-400 is completemented with an ipad app that mimics the NMJ on the player itself, allowing full control of the A-400 from an ipad (requires iOS 5). The app wont work on iphone and and android version will appear later in the year.
ISO support covers the gamut of formats – BD, 3d BD, DVD etc but only supports “simple Navigation” which I take to mean no full BD menu like on the Dune HD offerings.
It sports HDMI and component video outputs and coaxial, optical and analog audio outputs. Has 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1x USB 3.0 slave, eSATA, SD-CArd reader and has a 3.5″ bay for SATA drives. It also has a gigabit connection.
