Sharp unveils all-in-one 7.1 theater with Blu-Ray

Sharp Blu-Ray Home Theater

Sharp complemented today's launch of its new AQUOS sets by introducing a new, high-end home theater. In contrast to most all-in-one kits, the BD-MPC70 is built to give avid movie fans every component needed beyond the TV itself. At the core is a hybrid Blu-Ray player and 1-bit digital amplifier: the single device both plays the next-generation discs at their native 1080p when linked through HDMI and powers any sound system linked through either the dual analog or digital outputs.

The speakers bundled with the MPC70 are also designed to transcend other pack-ins, Sharp claims. A full 7.1-channel system puts out 175W of power, enough to drive the surround sound in any movie. The Japanese electronics maker will ship the entire assembly after its AQUOS sets arrive, delivering the combo for $8,339 on June 25th. Its North American counterpart is possible but remains unofficial.
