New JVC home theaters

JVC is promoting three new home theater systems at CES, the TH-G31, G41 and G51. All three feature 5.1-channel surround speakers, with power rated at 1,000W; these attach to a receiver which decodes DTS and Dolby Digital input, while providing HDMI video output and 1080p upconversion. A front-facing auxiliary input allows additional connections. The G31 is the simplest of the three, providing no extra improvements.

The G41 introduces a dock for iPods and iPhones, capable of feeding both audio and video into a home theater setup. A player's menu can be displayed on a TV, and basic play, pause and skip functions can be controlled through the main remote. The G51 retains the dock, but switches out the other systems' rear channels with wireless speakers.

The G31 should ship in April, at a price of $250. The G41 will follow in May for $330, while the G51 will ship in June for $430.

    Find the Verb

    Hmmm, maybe MacNN does read comments. They have dropped the awkward "outs" and replaced it with a series of:

    Sony launches first camera (fine)

    JVC exposes iPod (weird, but would have been a good pun for the one above)

    Samsung reveals LED-lit (weird II)

    LG uncovers work, HDTV (was it hidden?)

    Verbatim debuts ExpressCard SSD (okay, but meant for completely new products)

    SanDisk releases third-gen SSDs for home use (perfect!!)

    Parallels ships update (generally okay, but software is usually released)

    RadTech ships iPhone, iPod cases (okay, these are actual items than can be shipped)

    AMD unveils Phenom II architecture (fine)

    OWC debuts quad interface RAID rack-based storage (fine)

    Isn't language fun?
