Sony has announced its new “Home theatre in a stand” system designed to be used with 32-40 inch BRAVIA TVs, though unlikely to self-destruct if you deign to put a different brand of flat screen telly on it.
It’s a 3:1 system, featuring centre, left, and right speakers and a subwoofer built in to the stand, and it used S-Force PRO Front Surround technology to offer virtual surround sound without the need for rear speakers and the near-obligatory trailing wires.
It include audio inputs for TV, DVD, PS3, and Blu-ray players, and can handle high definition audio formats. It also features BRAVIA Sync, for controlling multiple Sony components with a single remote control, HDMI, and a Digital Media Port for connecting portable multimedia devices.
Exact pricing and availability to be confirmed.
