LG's new plasma is available in three different sizes—42, 50, and 60 inches—to suit theaters of any size. The 50-inch DU-50PY10 is fully integrated, with ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuners and a built-in CableCARD slot. The television also features a 1,366 by 768p resolution and a rated 3,000:1 contrast ratio. The TV uses LG's proprietary XD Engine, which, according to the company, minimizes distortion, improves brightness, and enhances the overall picture quality. Inputs are plentiful, including HDMI, DVI with HDCP, RGB, and IEEE 1394. Pricing wasn't available at press time.
Naturally you want a sleek speaker to complement your new flat-screen monitor. New from Klipsch is an on-wall loudspeaker that will do just that. The new RVX-42 features dual 4-inch aluminum woofers and a 1-inch titanium tweeter. The RVX-42 offers two insert locations to position the accompanying pedestal—in the center or on the bottom—so the speaker can serve as either a center channel or front speaker. Like other Klipsch Reference satellites, the RVX-42 is available in either a black or silver finish, and it sells for $449.
