Japan gets first crack at 52- and 65-inch AQUOS LCDs that are blessed with THX’s sound seal of approval.
The THX-certified units will initially be available only in Japan.

AQUOS TVs always looked awesome, but they didn’t have the thumbs up from George Lucas—until now.

THX has partnered with Sharp to give a few of their new TVs the true cinema experience.

The Sharp T Series, which includes the Sharp LV-65TH1 and LV-52TH1, has been designed and tested to meet Lucas’ and THX’s standards, which means near-perfect color and light levels.

Each LCD features THX Movie Mode, calibrates your set at the touch of a button. This video setting can tweak gamma, luminance, color temperature and other settings for the best possible playback of movies on DVD, Blu-ray, HD-DVD and broadcast television.

Here comes the rub: These units are currently only available in Japan. However, THX says that they should be coming to the U.S. soon, so stay tuned.
