When it comes to movies, leave no stone unturned
Don't settle for two dimensions. Add 3D to your home theater arsenal with Sony's BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player. Take advantage of your TV's incredible 1080p and 3D capabilities for amazing picture quality and three-dimensional effects without leaving your house. You say you don't own a 3D-compatible home theater receiver? No problem — you can still enjoy a thrilling movie experience. Simply connect an HDMI cable directly from the BDP-S5100 to your TV for flawless picture quality, and use the S5100's coaxial digital output to send the audio signal to your receiver.

You can even push videos, movies, and photos from your compatible smartphone or tablet directly to the 'S5100 using your wireless home network. SideView features require both your player and smartphone to be connected to the same wireless network.
