Want to keep your home clean and cable-free? Acoustic Research’s HDP100 HD Powerlink can make that magic happen without having to conceal cables or carve up walls.
The $400 system uses your good old existing powerlines. Remember those? Just connect one AC-powered module to the TV and the other to your source component, and boom—you’re in business. AR says the system uses “HD-PLC or high-definition power-line communications” technology to shuttle audio and video from the DVD player to the TV over existing electrical wiring.” It boasts data rates up to 200Mbps, as well as 1080p audio/video.
“AR’s HD Powerlink system is perfect for people who want a great picture but also want to cut down on cable clutter and avoid long and potentially very expensive HDMI cable runs,” said Dan Crupi, senior product manager for Audiovox’s Audio and Wireless Products. “The system is easy to set up and you won’t need to hire a professional installer to snake wires through your walls.”
The HDP100 package is available now for $399.99.
