You may find it hard to believe, but in this geeky age of electronic overload, some people still love one-stop solutions. Denon is adding two new 2.1 entertainment systems to the home-theater-in-a-box market.
The S-302 ($1,699) and the S-102 ($999) each have 2.1 surround sound and progressive-scan DVD players. The S-102 will scale up to 1080p via HDMI; the S-302 will upconvert all analog to HDMI, also scaling to 1080p.
That’s all fine and dandy, but we think a nice little add-on is the Wi-Fi inside. This allows you to stream music from your computer (PC or Mac) or anywhere else the web may take you. The S-302 can even access photos for slideshows.
According to Engadget, each system also as two satellite speakers, a 100-watt subwoofer and a remote,.
The press release also says they have two networked audio products (S-52 and S-32) coming as well. Something else they’ve unleashed: the word “worldwidely.” Kudos!
