Sony Bravia NX800 2D HDTV Series with Monolithic Design

January 8th, 2010

Sony Bravia NX800 Series

Whilst 2010 may be the year of the 3D HDTV, manufacturers of course are still producing latest and greatest two dimensional units for us to drool over too. Sony are certainly no exception to this and have unleashed a plethora of traditional 2D BRAVIA units on us at CES 2010. Ironically three of the series LX900, HX9000 and HX800 are in fact 3D capable with the LX900 series having ‘Integrated Full HD 3D technology’. For the other two series a 3D emitter and glasses are sold separately. These series are also not available until the summer.

However we shall concentrate on what you can get your mits on right now and that’ll be the Sony Bravia NX800 series which sports screen sizes all the way from 46 inches up to the big boy 60 incher. Here are the details on the largest with any exceptions on its smaller siblings noted

* Edge Lit LED backlight
* Sony’s Monolithic design
* Integrated LightSensor technology automatically adjusts to your room’s ambient light
* Motionflow 240Hz refresh rate
* Full HD 1080p picture quality
* Built-in wireless connectivity to your home entertainment network
* USB port
* Handles 1080/60p (HDMI/Component), 1080/60i, 1080/24p (HDMI Only), 720/60p, 480/60p, 480/60i
* 60 inch 16:9 Full HD 1920×1080 res (52 inch and 46 inch)
* Audio Power Output : 20W (10W x 2)
* 60 inch – 1440 x 927 x 380mm and 50.6 kg with pedestal
* 52 inch – 1261 x 819 x 400mm and 36.1 kg with pedestal
* 46 inch – 1127 x 742 x 320mm and 28.8 kg with pedestal
* 5.1 Channel Audio Out

Perhaps the most unusual thing about the Sony Bravia NX800 series is the Monolithic design which presents the display at an upward angle of 6 degrees. This would present the viewer with an ever-so-slightly non-square display. Without actually seeing it in the flesh we’re not sure whether this is a good thing or not, but it is definitely different. Anyway on to possibly more important things the price tags. Pre-ordering these suckers will set you back $4600, $3400 and $2800 respectively through the Sony Bravia website. Whilst hanging on to see how the 3D market pans out may be a wise move, if you’re itching for HD love right now then these bad boys would certainly fill that need.

LG’s 52 inch 1080p LCD WiFi TV

November 15th, 2007


Now this puppy looks like a winner. LG have just launched a 52 inch 1080p LCD TV with 802.11n WiFi connectivity enabling you to stream HD content across your home network and onto this sucker.

Unfortunately with no pricing or launch date there are still a few key loose ends left to be tied up, but the 52LG71 LCD TV could be an awesome addition to any home entertainment setup at any cost.

Bang & Olufsen launch BeoVision 7

June 15th, 2007

Beovision 7

The clever guys at Bang & Olufsen this week launched the BeoVision 7, their latest home theatre centre with integrated DVD player, digital surround sound module plus a widescreen 40 inch LCD HDTV. We probably wouldn’t expect anything less from B&O but they insist we should expect more by providing us with a few extra whizzy features

  • When BeoVision 7 is switched on, the TV automatically adjusts the picture quality to match the current light conditions — and continues to do so until the television is switched off.
  • BeoVision 7 features a motorized floor stand and wall bracket, giving complete freedom to tilt and turn the screen from one’s viewing position with a simple touch on the remote control
  • The vertical BeoLab 7-4 loudspeaker provides incredible precision and acoustic clarity of the voice track of a film or television program. Utilizing the patented Acoustic Lens Technology, BeoLab 7-4 ensures a perfect sound dispersion from the treble at an even 180 degrees throughout the room.

On the downside it will have a price tag of US$13,250 with an extra $500 to $1000 for one of the stand options when it hits the US this summer. So it’s not something you’d be popping out to buy on a whim but I must admit it does look pretty sexy and as with B&O gear has a unique look to it.
