Kenwood Fineline VRS-N8100

Kenwood has just announced the availability of their highly anticipated VRS-N8100(see Figure 5), an A/V receiver and digital media adapter—based on Sigma's EM8550 media processor chipset—combined into one, which will be available for purchase in Japan, the United States, and in Europe.

Feature highlights:

  • Ability to directly accept streaming digital music, movies, and photos from any networked PC to a stereo or television via the remote and TV user interface

  • Kenwood's new "Supreme" audio playback system that restores high-pitched audio tones (treble) that may have been eliminated due to MP3 and WMA compression, thus giving back the digital music's full range of sound

  • Media management enabled through the use of an onscreen GUI interface along with a remote control to select sound, images, and animation files on a PC

  • Digital memory support based on an optional PC card adapter for compact flash, memory stick, smart media, and SD/MMC card support

  • Popular digital media format support including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, XviD, MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV, JPEG, BMP, GIF, and PNG.
