Sharp debuts AQUOS X series in Japan

updated 03:15 pm EST, Thu January 24, 2008

Sharp AQUOS X LCDs

Having announced its E94U and D74U sets at this year's CES expo, Sharp today revealed yet more AQUOS LCDs at a press conference in Japan. The new X series will be comprised of 37-, 42- and 46-inch sets, each just under 1.4 inches thick. The sets will all be 1080p-capable moreover, and use 12-bit BDE color-rendering. A 120Hz refresh rate should permit fast response to motion, and their contrast ratio is said to be 15,000:1 -- making the sets mid-range within the AQUOS line, but still above-average for LCDs in general.

Inputs on the sets will include three HDMI 1.3a ports, allowing for output of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio to AV receivers. The sets are due to launch in Japan on March 1st, at prices of 350,000, 430,000 and 480,000 yen ($3,319, $4,077 and $4,551). [via Impress Watch]
