Yamada HTV-200XU crams home theatre into Boombox
German Hi-Fi manufacturer Yamada (Yes, Yamada, not Yamaha) have released the Yamada HTV-200XU, a Hi-Fi boombox crammed with so many features, it’s more like a PC in Boombox clothing. As you can see, it’s got a 7 inch LCD screen, plus a DVD player capable of playing DivX, DVDs, MPEG 4 movie files, and even TV (both digital via DVB-T, and analogue TV).
Add to that 5.1 sound support and a TV-Out, and the HTV-200XU seems like a mobile home theatre system. But no, there are more strings to the Yamada’s bow than that…
In addition to its home theatre credentials, the Yamada HTV-200XU (why don’t the electronics companies give their gizmos better names?! Why not call it the “Yamada Yoda” or something?!), also features some nifty Hi-Fi features, too, including the ability to rip your CDs and play MP3 files, and comes with an FM tuner and 30W RMS speakers to boot.
As if all that wasn’t enough, you can even hook the Yamada Yoda (for that’s that I’m calling it now!) up to your PC via its USB port, so you can play your MP3 tunes directly from your PC (or your MP3 player, for that matter).
And the price of all this super-boombox genius? Just 220 Euros – bargain!
