Thousands of men across the country squealed like little school girls this Christmas as flat screen televisions were gifted and opened. We don’t blame them – who doesn’t want a behemoth screen on their wall?
But a big screen is only half the picture. Don’t let you new Plasma or LCD go unaccompanied with shoddy sound. Without good sound, you’re missing half the experience.
We suggest the new Sony Bravia DAV-IS10. It’s an ultra-compact system complete with DVD player/receiver, five tiny satellite speakers, and a subwoofer. You’ll enjoy the beauty of Dolby® Digital, DTS®, & Pro Logic® II processing 5.1 surround and it even includes Sony’s TDM-IP1 iPod dock for your tunes. It has an DVD player which will upconvert your standard DVD’s to a higher resolution for smoother picture on your new screen and an automatic audio sensing microphone for making your setup a snap.
What this means to you: The holiday season may be nearing it’s end, but the fun of your new screen is only beginning…
Cost: $700 @ Crutchfield
