Motorola has unveiled their new home entertainment product, the DCP601. This all-in-one box holds a 6.1-channel A/V processor, a digital-cable-ready receiver, HDTV and AM/FM tuners, and a progressive-scan DVD-Video/-Audio player that also supports the MP3, WMA, and JPEG formats. Connect the DCP601 to your HD monitor via the DVI (with HDCP) output; the HDTV tuner supports 18 ATSC off-air video formats, so you can tune in any HDTV channels that your cable system doesn't offer. The DCP601's internal amp is rated at 100 watts times six, and the processor includes Dolby EX, DTS ES, and SRS Labs' Circle Surround II technology, which lets you enjoy 6.1 surround sound from virtually any stereo content, including CD, MP3, and television broadcasts. The DCP601's suggested retail price is $1,199.
A good chair is the difference between a so-so home theater and an outstanding one. To take your home theater to the next level, check out Pullman Furniture's line of custom seating. Choose from three grades and more than 55 shades of top-grain leather or 18 different colors of pinnacle suede. The Ventura line (pictured here) is available with contrast welt. Like all of Pullman's theater seating, the Ventura is a wall-hugger, meaning that you can place it within 4 inches of a wall without affecting the chair's recline. The Ventura's prices begin at $1,480 for a single chair in pinnacle suede. A leather, motorized, three-chair Ventura design will set you back $3,040.
