Sony home theater packs more in smaller boxes

New Bravia model claims 405 watts of sound in just two speakers and a woofer.


The good news is that Sony seems to be coming out with some interesting new offerings on the home-media front. The bad news, at least for those of us who reside in the States, is that many of them are being released in Europe.

Just like the shiny aluminum high-end PC speaker we saw yesterday, Sony's Bravia DAV-F200 home theater system is designed to pack more power into a smaller form. In this case, according to Newlaunches, that means virtual surround sound without "the unnecessary clutter of six speakers." Instead, it uses its "S-Force Front Surround" technology to get a total of 405 watts of sound from only two speakers and a woofer.

It also delivers HDMI video quality, though be aware of those DVD upscaling claims to full 1080p high-efinition that are commonplace these days. But the whole system, right down the remote, iss optimized to work seamlessly with (surprise, surprise) any Bravia TV.
