Sony Bravia TVs are getting really big. I even got one 40″ for myself at a price which can only buy me a 800:1 contrast 32″ LCD TV a few years ago. Now Sony has Bravia sound systems as big as strawberry like this 5.1 HT-IS100 Bravia Theatre Micro System.
All the bulky power paraphernalia resides in the relatively huge subwoofer, which you can hide out of sight, leaving these four tiny surround speakers and their center channel brother to take up about as much space as a fly on the wall. If that’s still too obtrusive for you, make those rear surround speaks even less noticeable with an optional wireless kit. I have heard Sony’s previous model when I was buying my 40″ or is it the same thing, I can’t remember but they sound surprisingly good.

Sony Bravia KLV-40W400A

April 19, 2008


I just upgraded my 32″ Acer LCD TV to a 40″ Sony Bravia… using it to write this post. So big and bright in front of my face. This TV uses Bravia Engine 2; WCG-CCFL; Live Color Creation technology; 1080p24 input-ready; Digital Media Port; Bravia Sync (for Handycam camcorders); triple HDMI terminals. It has 30000:1 dynamic contrast (can we see the difference with the naked eyes?), 8ms response time (not fast enough for gamers), S-Force front surround audio, 450cd/m2 brightness, 178-degree viewing angle and of course ful Full-HD-ready. 
So what’s the big deal? Nothing much, I just like a bigger TV for watching DVD in my room, sharper image, warmth on a cold night, good to play my Wii with, and telling myself that I have to look up and down to see the entire window of this post, Wahhahaha…
oh, and the Sony logo glows when you switch it on… that’s cool.
Next target, a 60″ for my living room.

Plug the TDM-NC1 Wi-Fi client into the Digital Media Port (DMP) of your system and experience the thrill of your music in surround sound.
