It being perfect stay-indoors-and-watch-Mad-Men weather, we've managed to sweet talk those amiable folk at Sony into providing a brace of stylish Blu-ray players for two lucky Esquire readers.
The BDP-S360 is hardwired to accommodate Blu-ray entertainment in all its stunning, 24 frames per second, 1080p resolution (or to put it another way, content that offers six times the sharpness of a standard DVD picture, and ten times the sound quality). Late adopters need not feel left out though, as its Precision Cinema HD Upscale technology will squeeze every last pixel out of your DVD back catalogue to sate the HD credentials boasted by your TV set.
Other perks you can expect from this slim-line performer are 7.1 channel surround sound, a patented function to combat the ills of scratched discs, and an impressive six-second startup time. Hook it up to your home broadband, and you'll be eligible for free hardware updates and exclusive Blu-ray content (depending on which discs you own).
So if you'd like to High-Def your home entertainment without abusing your bank balance, just email your name and address to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Sony Blu-ray competition’ in the subject header by midnight on Friday 19 February.
