Sony’s latest RC-Series Vaio, the VGC-RC202, has hidden talents. Unlike most other commercially available PCs, it can record, edit and play music at Super Audio CD quality, and even upgrade older recordings, courtesy of a Sound Reality audio processor which upconverts conventional CD into the uncompressed Direct Stream Digital (DSD) format. Using the pre-installed SonicStage Mastering Studio software, a DSD signal can also be re-mastered into 5.1 SACD, The unit is also a fully fledged video editor, capable of editing HD files, and ships with Sony’s Network Media Receiver 200 (the DNLA-compliant VGP-MR200E), which can stream HD content to an HD-ready TV. Controlled from a TV interface via remote, the Network Media Receiver also provides instant access to any PC-based photo library and music collection.
At the heart of the PC is a dual-core Intel Pentium D processor. The VGC-RC202 uses the 2.8GHz Pentium D 920, coupled to a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 6600 PCI Express graphics card while twin hard disks in a RAID array yield up to 600GB of storage.
