To take down the hurdles of home theater system set-up and to provide easy and quick solutions for novices, Fisher has now announced three pre-packaged DVD-Video home theatre systems, each with unique predefined component configurations.
The three new DVD systems include the AVD-8501 ($449.99 suggested retail price, available in May), HTD-5201 ($399.99 MSRP, available in May) and DCS-DAV821 ($399.99 MSRP, available in July).
The Fisher AVD-8501 Home Theatre System features a slim DVD-Video player with a built-in receiver that can fit into a TV rack. It offers a built-in Dolby® Digital decoder and Dolby Pro Logic®, five satellite speakers and a subwoofer. In addition to standard DVD-Video and CD formats, the AVD-8501 will play Video CDs, CD-Rs and even MP3 audio files. Output power is 30W x 6, including a subwoofer amp.
At first glance, the Fisher HTD-5201 resembles an attractive pair of compact speaker systems. But closer inspection reveals an easy-to-use, integrated DVD-Video home theatre solution offering impressive sound and video performance. It elegantly incorporates “built-ins” such as a DVD-Video player, speaker system with subwoofer, and an amplifier that delivers a maximum 30 watts per channel plus an ample 30 watts to the subwoofer. The system will play CDs, Video CDs and CD-Rs in addition to standard DVDs. The HTD-5201 delivers 2.1-channel Virtual 3D Surround for an impressive, cinema-like sound experience. A joystick remote with multi-brand TV Control makes it easy to operate all key system functions from the comfort of an easy chair.
The Fisher DCS-DAV821 is a sleek and stylish three-piece, compact Personal Theatre System. It features an integrated DVD-Video player, amplifier and tuner, plus twin two-way speaker enclosures that incorporate a built-in subwoofer system in each speaker. Measuring a mere 190mm wide, the DVD/amp/tuner section offers user-selectable Virtual 3D Surround circuitry for an exciting, surround-like cinema sound experience using only two speakers. The system’s DVD player is CD, Video CD and CD-R compatible.
