Sony Muteki party audio

Sony's product lines have once again expanded, this time with the Muteki series of audio systems. The units are designed specifically for parties, incorporating karaoke and light sync functions, and power levels between 520 and 880W. The low end is represented by the MHC-LX10000, which is essentially a two-channel stereo except that one disc can keep playing while two others are changed. The LBT-ZX6 upgrades to a five-disc changer and three-way, 560W audio, and also adds CD recording and automatic volume control to prevent distortion.

At the high end are the LBT-ZX9 and LBT-ZX80D. The ZX9 is a 720W four-channel system, and includes DJ-style functions such as wave, fade and balance panning, and a jog dial that can cut music for voice-overs. The ZX80D has 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS surround-sound, and features a three-disc DVD player, which can be used to play movie, DivX and MP3 files as well as audio CDs. At 880W, the system is so powerful that it has its own air intake to maintain performance. The ZX9 will be ready in March for $600; the ZX80D is due in May for $700. Meanwhile, the ZX6 and LX10000 are already in retail stores at $400.
