Sony Grand Vega KDS-R70XBR2

Sony Grand Vega KDS-R70XBR2

If you're concerned about the size of your, er, screen, or you're just a hardcore gamer gearing up for the release of the PS3, the Sony Grand Vega KDS-R70XBR2 ($7800) is the TV for you. Part of a new lineup of rear projection SXRD TVs, the R70XBR2 features a gargantuan 70-inch screen, three HDMI inputs, detachable speakers, and most importantly, native 1080p capability. If you only need a 60-incher, check out it's little brother — the KDS-R60XBR2 ($5300). Unfortunately these beasts won't be available until Fall, so if you just can't wait, check out the KDS-60A2000 ($4,500), KDS-55A2000 ($4,000), and KDS-50A2000 ($3,500). These non-XBR additions feature one less HDMI port, a different cabinet design, and will be available in the Summer. [via]

  • Sony 400-Disc DVD/SA-CD/CD Changer

    We may have ditched our CDs in favor of digital tracks, but it doesn't look like we'll be doing the same with our DVD collection any time soon. As this editor's collection grows, the DVP-CX995V 400-Disc DVD/Super-Audio/CD Mega Changer ($300) is looking more and more like a viable option for the living room setup. In addition to never again having to load DVDs one at a time, the unit up-scales video to high definition (1080i/720p) resolution and transmits pristine audio through an HDMI interface. The changer also features Sony's Precision Cinema Progressive circuitry, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 channel outputs and compatibility with DVD-RW/-R/+RW/+R1, MP32, JPEG3 , CD-RW/-R, VCD and SVCD discs.

  • Logitech Harmony 890 Pro Remote

    After five years of faithful service, this Uncrate editor's Bose remote finally died this past week, so we began a frantic search for a universal remote that could handle our myriad home theater devices. The Logitech Harmony 890 Pro Remote ($400) seems like the right fit for our needs. It features easy setup via USB, a macro-driven color menu system, a fully-backlit control pad, and, unlike the Harmony 880 which uses IR signals, the 890 works via RF so we can still change tracks on the Bose from the other room.
