For those who like their home theater to be stylish and just not functional, the new Sony TAV-L looks like a good buy. This all in one home theater includes a motorized audio unit which by a click of a button mechanically slides down and reveals a 32-inch LCD flat-panel HDTV. How cool is that? So what else does this baby offers?
Well there is the slot-loading DVD/CD/SACD player apart from two powerful vibration canceling subwoofers, Sony’s S-Master digital amplifier, and Sony’s S-Force Pro virtual surround sound processing. The latter is vital as it produces true surround sound without any rear speakers. If all this wasn?t impressing you then wait till we tell you about the unit?s pre-programmed remote control, HDMI input, Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and dts processing. This all in one HT system can be yours for about $4,000 and will be available in August.
