One of the things that's so frustrating with home theater systems is the amount of wires that are just lying around. There isn't that much you can do about them, unless you are ready to find some inventive way to reduce the clutter. Naturally, when a room is designed to be a home theater room, this is a lot easier. That's not the situation of most of us. Most of us live with some kind of a stand with a TV on top and a DVD player somewhere underneath. Also, the TV receiver box is somewhere under there. It just gets worse when you add even more devices, like the components of a stereo system.
Sharp is introducing a new line of HDTVs that will include a Blu-Ray player. This will effectively cut down on wires. For anyone in the market for a LCD TV and a Blu-Ray disc player/recorder, this would be a great solution since it's a two-in-one solution to your audio-visual quandary. This all-in-one solution will appeal to students, people trying to cut down on wires and anyone else who wants one compact unit for their home theater system. The new model line is the Aquos DX and will include Blu-Ray recorders as well. The sixteen sets in the Aquos DX line will range from 26-inch to 52-inch models and retail for about $1,600 to $4,900.
