Along with the new 8th-gen plasmas announced today is a Blu-ray player from Pioneer, the Elite BDP-94HD. There isn’t a whole lot to drool over, but the BDP-94HD can be seamlessly integrated into your home theater system via HDMI Consumer Electronics Control Technology. One remote control for all your home theater gadgets…awesome! Unfortunately you’ll have to deal with a 1.2 HDMI connection, but it does boast premium Dolby TrueHD lossless advanced audio. The new player hits the market this month for $1,000.
