Many home theater systems are designed as an add on to HDTV. With little thought or imagination, these systems detract from, rather than enhance high-definition home entertainment. With generic amplifier designs, limited playback capabilities, and inferior parts, they are little match for the range of A/V formats, sources, and technologies offered today. The HT-SP908 is a completely different proposition. With the TX-SR605 7.1-channel A/V surround home theater receiver and the DV-SP405 DVD/CD/MP3 player providing video and multichannel audio via today's ultimate transport, High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), this system will effortlessly transport audio and video signals in the digital domain. Some stunning innovations, like Audyssey 2EQ¿ to correct room acoustics, multi-room playback, a full connectivity suite (with switching and upconversion), XM and SIRIUS capability, and integrated system control, elevate this system into a league of its own.
