Not that much to get excited about at Sharp’s product launch last week. But there were a couple of things: its first portable digital music player (yes another iPod killer, the HRGB201) and a range of unusual looking home cinema products.
Pictured is the £250 DVD-HTX1, a 5.1 channel wall-mountable surround sound system with vertical loading DVD player. Also on display was the QTV5, a personal home cinema system for a kid’s bedroom. It looks much like a standard ghetto blaster but also incorporates a DVD player and single Scart. Finally, another bedroom solution is the 5 DVD mîcrosystem, the XL-DV50. Compatible with MP3 encoded discs, it can display MP3 track names on screen
