Putting the TV on a sound pedestal
Sharp has a sleek new cabinet system.
A story for your grandchildren: In ancient times, there were these things called armoires--once used for clothing, they evolved into big and bulky cabinets where people hid their big and bulky TVs. But now that plasma, LCD and evensets (the ultimate model) have completed the television set's swan-like transition, it's understandable if their proud owners no longer want to keep their TVs .
For these unabashed exhibitionists there's a new Sharp home theater system, a self-contained credenza with built-in speakers, subwoofers and amplifier outfitted with Dolby technology throughout, according to Tech Digest. Sound quality aside, its design is a definite step up from a similar system offered by a few months ago. But both serve the same ultimate purpose--as a pedestal for that massive flat-screen TV you must lord over your poker buddies.
