Interesting there is only one "state of the art" hdmi, and no component? Maybe the site meant to say three component rather than the composite they state.

While the concept is cool, seems they could have offered three speakers in the front, plus outputs for optional rear speakers and a sub preamp output. I mean, they went through the hassle of dedicated 50 watt speakers. A built in blu ray (being its a sony) rather than a dvd wouldnt have been a bad option either...but then I guess those two suggestions would have increased the price too much

Also you probably couldnt put it on a stand....it would sit too high. That leaves you with a seperate component rack for any additional equipment

Another victory of style over function...

They choose a 32 inch LCD over everything else, including 50-something inch LCOS, DILA Rear projectors - and 100 " front projectors - on the basis that it erects itself from a stupid base unit like a tumescent organ.

Gee thanks for the great advice Wired... what a waste of space...
