Product Specifications

Adding an element of functional design, this home cinema system delivers pure cinematic surround sound to your living space. Cutting-edge sound technology like Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Pro Logic II (including extended "Music" parameters: Centre Width, Dimension and Panorama) processing and the new Dialogue Enhancement DSP feature for enhanced centre channel reproduction, are perfectly packaged in the curvy main unit and corresponding superb-sounding surround satellite speaker set and subwoofer. Don't let the slim lines of this unit fool you. The system still packs power - 450 W (75 W x 6) RMS. The ideal partner for digital living, it can play back DVD-Video, DVD-RW (both "Video" mode and "Video Recording" mode), DVD-R, CD, VideoCD, SVCD, CD-R and CD-RW, as well as JPEG, WMA and MP3 files on CD-R and CD-RW discs. Ease and convenience are second-nature thanks to a realm of intelligent elements ranging from the restyled, straightforward TV preset remote control and easy Room and Seat Position Set-up to installation extras like the colour-coded one-touch speaker terminals and Euro-SCART terminal for easy installation and pure RGB video output.
