CEDIA is still going strong, and with announcements like this one from JVC, we can see why. The DLA-RS4000 is a projector with some hefty specifications, which includes the heavy lifting necessary to move this thing around. Especially compared to JVC's earlier offerings, this new projector is a beast. And believe us when we say, the price tag reflects that statement.
JVC have outed their latest range of D-ILA home theater projectors, with a full six models on offer spanning prices from $5,000 to $10,000. Three - the DLA-RS35, DLA-RS25 and DLA-RS15 - will be pushed via JVC's professional products arm, while the remainder - the DLA-HD990, DLA-HD950 and DLA-HD550 - will go on sale via the consumer group. Most impressive about all the models, though, are their contrast ratios: even the entry HD550 manages 30,000:1, while the top-spec RS35 and HD990 manage 70,000:1.
Headphones-a-plenty from JVC today, as the company announces two new sets of over-the-ear cans and two sets of multicolored in-ear headphones. The former, the HA-M750 and HA-S650, are each foldable for easy transport and storage, and have carbon compound diaphragms, rigid carbon housings and memory-foam ear cushions. The M750 uses 1.57-inch drivers while the S650 uses slightly smaller 1.42-inch drivers; they'll be available in August for $79.95 and $69.95 respectively.
The device has a video output as well, so you can watch videos stored on your iPod for viewing on a nearby connected television. Also including is an audio input on the front of the device for easy connectivity.
Additional features include a total power output of 70 watts, an AM/FM tuner, a CD player, a USB port, MP3 and WMA compatibility and more. So, if you've always wanted a Hi-Fi that could play your MP3s, you're now in luck. You can get the JVC UX-LP5 now for $149.95.
