Sony has released a nice and shiny looking new media package: the DAV-X1. The set looks like it’s aimed at the more casual home cinema viewer, boasting an easy setup routine with no complicated wiring to figure out. The package includes a DVD player, Super Audio CD player and 2.1 speaker set. While the 2.1 speaker set may look disappointing for 5.1 enthusiasts, the speakers are looking pretty high quality and come packing Sony’s S-force front surround digital processor as well as S-master digital amplifier. The DVD player also comes with Sony’s Precision Cinema Progressive Technology, which cuts down on motion blur. All in all, quite a nice litttle package.
The set is available now, going for around £700.
