Sharp Debuts Two New AQUOS LCD's: 52-Inch LC-52XS1, 65-Inch LC-65XS1
Sharp has a couple high-end AQUOS XS1 LCD TV's coming to Japan October 15. The 52-inch LC-52XS1 and 65-inch LC-65XS1 both feature a 1920 x 1080 pixel dot-ASV LCD panel with RGB LED backlighting, a 1, 000, 000:1 contrast ratio and 450 cd/m2 brightness. Thanks to an external tuner, both models are extremely thin-2.28 cm at the thinnest point and 6.04 cm at the thickest. The external tuner houses the connection ports by the looks of it including 3 HDMI, 3 D5, and a variety of audio outputs plus ethernet and USB ports. Fully network capable and internet connected, the new XS1's include a Bluetooth LCD remote control which, if my Japanese translation is correct, can be used to control all your home theater peripherals aside from the AQUOS sets. Oh, and when you're not watching TV, the AQUOS XS1's display paintings by the likes of Renoir and Van Gogh! Impressive, and probably pretty expensive too, although no pricing information is available at the moment.
Update: Apparently the model tags are actually LC-52XS1U-S and LC-65XS1U-S and get this-respective prices are ¥980,000 ($9,243) and ¥1.28 million ($12,225). Wow!
