New Pixa ‘Easy Theater 7.1’ DVD Home Theater System
Includes 5.1 Speaker Kit with Multipurpose 2.0 Wireless Rear Speakers
Wireless Speakers Do Double Duty with PCs, CD and MP3 Players
LAS VEGAS (2005 International CES, January 6, 2005, South Hall 2 #25427) — Take a high-performance DVD receiver with a built-in AM/FM tuner, add a 7.1 speaker kit with wireless rear speakers that support multiple audio devices, and you get the Pixa DVW-200 Easy Theater 7.1 — a new multipurpose DVD home theater system from Pixa, Inc., that eliminates the need to buy separate speakers for your PC, CD or MP3 player.
The speaker package includes a 5.1-channel, 200-watt Dolby Digital/dts surround sound system consisting of four wired speakers and a subwoofer, plus two 2.4 GHz wireless rear speakers integrated into a single cabinet for easy room placement. Each wireless speaker is positioned at a 45-degree angle in the cabinet and utilizes Dynamic Refraction Surround Sound (DRSS) technology enabling audio to bounce off the wall and back to the listener for a surround sound effect.
In addition to bringing surround sound to DVD movies, the wireless speakers can be used as a digital boom box that can move from sound source to sound source and room to room without disconnecting and reconnecting cables. The wireless speakers can:
Deliver CD, AM/FM or burned MP3 audio from the system’s DVD receiver;
Broadcast music from a CD or MP3 player via a wireless transmitter included with the package that plugs into the DVD player’s 3.5mm stereo jack;
Transmit stored music or Internet radio from a PC via a USB-based wireless transmitter that can be purchased separately; or
Beam music into the backyard, basement, garage or any room in the house.
The same transmitters can also send DVD, CD, MP3 or PC-based audio to wireless headphones that are available as an add-on accessory.
The DVW-200 supports DVD, VCD, DVCD, MP3, JPEG and picture CD-RW files, progressive scan DVD playback for super-sharp picture quality, and multi-view angle and multi-language/multi-subtitle for DVDs. The built-in AM/FM tuner is capable of saving up to 20 stations.
The system comes with a remote control and standard component Y/Cr/CB, S-Video and composite video connectors for hooking up to the television.
