JVC will shown a new line of network home cinema systems at the Las Vegas CES. The Sohisti range comprises the DD-8 and DD-3, which are built around a network media player designed to serve as the nerve center of any home entertainment system. Users can stream digital media from a networked PC, and play DVDs from the main DVD/amplifer unit. Both models are DNLA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compliant, and allow USB devices to be connected directly for convenient playback of music files. For those adverse to rear speakers, there’s a Front Surround virtual mode for faux cinema sound. The DD-3 uses bookshelf speakers, the DD-8 employs a pair of floorstanders. The models will sell for 1000 and 2000 dollars respectively, with the smaller unit available from April. European prices will be announced later this month.
