Sony slips out sleek, sexy home cinema set

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sony’s latest home cinema unit is an exercise in minimalism, but what the Bravia unit lacks in size it makes up for in sound power.

The DAV-F200 2.1 Home Theatre System packs in a DVD player rather than a Blu-ray drive, but it features an HDMI port through which it'll upscale your standard-definition movies to 1080p resolution.

The set contains two satellite speakers and a “compact” sub-woofer that together provide a combined output of 405W. The system’s speaker drivers have also been given a fine tuning by Sony’s high-end AV department, the consumer electronics company claimed.

Sony's Bravia DAV-F200: a stylish stereo and DVD player

Fans of Walkman phones and MP3 players can hook these devices into the system through a built-in USB port. Several digital audio formats are supported, including MP3 and WMA, and JPEG stills can be displayed when you hook the system up to a telly.

A remote control’s included in case you’re too lazy to get up to change tracks on the wall-mountable or desk-standing system. A Bluetooth receiver isn’t built into the unit, but a Sony modular digital media adaptor can be bought separately to give the DAV-F200 Bluetooth stereo connectivity.

Sony DAV-F200 2.1 Home Theatre System will be available in the UK this June. There's no word yet on how much it'll set you back.
