Sharp just announced a cutting-edge home-theater-in-a-box system that combines versatility and performance for a complete home entertainment solution. Designed with video and audio enthusiasts in mind, the BD-MPC41 incorporates advanced Audyssey sound enhancement technology and iPod support along with Blu-ray and DVD playback and Netflix movie streaming.

The 5.1-channel BD-MPC41 is a one-box playback solution for consumers’ diverse media portfolios, including Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and CDs, along with MP3 audio files and JPEG images on disc. The Ethernet port on the back of the HTIB system gives consumers a pipeline to additional content, from the BD-Live functionality of Blu-ray Discs to thousands of streaming movie titles from Netflix. An FM tuner rounds out the menu of audio sources.

“There’s so much compelling content available today–on discs and via the Internet–that it can be overwhelming for consumers to try to manage it all,” said Bruce Tripido, associate vice president, Entertainment Products Division, Sharp Electronics Corporation. “Sharp wants to simplify the home entertainment experience for consumers by providing them an attractive, unified way to enjoy all of their media using a single interface and remote control.”

Addressing consumers’ desire for fewer boxes, the BD-MPC41 comes with an integrated sound bar that combines left, center and right speakers into a single streamlined cabinet. The sound bar comes in a high-gloss black finish that’s matched to the player, the rear speakers and the subwoofer. Mounting brackets and adjustable feet are included.

The BD-MPC41 delivers an impressive 1,020 watts to power the sound bar, rear-channel speakers and subwoofer. The system supports advanced surround-sound technologies including Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio Essential. In addition to high power, the system boasts a palette of enhanced audio features from Audyssey, whose sound enhancement technology is found in high-end amplifiers. Audyssey brings the BD-MPC41 a level of audio performance not typically found in soundbar systems at any price. Audyssey Dynamic EQ is designed to maintain the dynamic range and balance of a soundtrack at any volume. Audyssey BASS XT maximizes subwoofer performance at low frequencies and Audyssey Dynamic Volume equalizes volume levels so that you can minimize the swings in volume between regular programming and commercials.

Designed to complement high-resolution Sharp 1080p AQUOS LCD TVs, the BD-MPC41 features HDMI 1.3 with x.v. Color, 24 frame output, and AQUOS Pure Mode for automatic color correction.
