Two New Players

Hello,

The lads at HDI have had a rethink and a lesson in product design and now have two updated players for the US and most of Europe.

First up HDI Dune HD Base 2.0
Dune HD Base 2.0 » HDI: High Definition Israel


Then we have the HDI Dune BD Prime 2.0
Dune BD Prime 2.0 » HDI: High Definition Israel

This does pretty much everything the Base model does but also includes a Blu-Ray drive with full support of BD-Live functionality.

They now make these players on one of the biggest factories in China specialising in high quality audio-video equipment, the factory is owned and managed by Panasonic and this is also where Panasonic make its own Blu-ray players.

These players are based on Sigma Designs 8634 chip, they didn’t use Sigma Designs 8642 chipset as they (HDI) find the hardware and SDK a little buggy and while the SDK is always getting updated releasing a player just to be first with the new chipset to market will cause a lot of issues with end users if it has buggy hardware. Software they can fix hardware stays as it is..

Wi-Fi and 1Gb upgrades will be available separately (can be installed by resellers). eSATA upgrade is discontinued.

Hi

I just rang DE customer support, do you know if you will be getting the BD Prime 2.0 player in to re-sell in the UK? I really want one of these units (When they become available), I was advised they are not sure and would have to speak to someone in your purchasing dept.

Please advise on what guys will be doing regarding the Dune Prime 2.0 Players

Regards

FYI - I e-mailed HDI, and they advised to check UK reseller at the end of August for the Dune Prime 2.0....don't know why, but they said they will have fresh stock towards then. Let me know if you get any info before hand....really want the 2.0 now :D

regards

They are looking good, we will certainly look into it still but stock issues with the last model had put 1-2 of us off. We had plenty of orders just couldnt get hold of them :(
