BBC Home Entertainment will release Class: Series One as a 2-disc set on Blu-ray on 7/11. For those who may be unaware, the show is a spin-off of Doctor Who.

Finally today, Oppo has just announced that their UDP-205 4K Ultra HD Audiophile Blu-ray player is going to start shipping at the end of next week. It carries an SRP of $1,299.00 and includes a number of hardware improvements on their already fine UDP-203 4K player designed to enhance the high-end audiophile experience. Here’s Oppo’s promo video for the unit (below), and you can pre-order it at this link...

Meanwhile, if my daily columns are a bit sparse over the next couple of days, it’s because I’m working hard to finish a pair of new hardware reviews for you, including Oppo’s aforementioned UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, as well as Epson’s PowerLite Home Cinema 5040UB video projector. More on those soon.

We’ll leave you today with a look at some recent Blu-ray cover artwork (with pre-order links if available)...

Aftermath (Blu-ray Disc) Dracula: The Complete Legacy Collection (Blu-ray Disc) South Park: The Complete Twentieth Season (Blu-ray Disc)

Stay tuned…
