Onkyo has always held a place in my heart, but pardon me when I say that their latest Blu-ray player, the DV-BD507 is God awful ugly.  So ugly in fact that it bears resemblance to the early days of DVD.  If that isn’t bad enough chew on the price tag of $449 and you’ll surely be spitting with disgust.  Course it does include the ability to play AVCHD video clips stored on an SD card, which might make this player niche enough to have a place in every aspiring auteur’s home.  And like all good Blu-ray players that cost about half as much, the DV-BD507 can also upscale regular DVDs to 1080 and includes BD-Live (Profile 2.0).
