Sharp has introduced the HT-DV50H home cinema system, which will be available from the end of the month with a £399 price tag.

The system comprises high power RMS 250W speakers (offering 75W per channel) and a 100W Subwoofer.

Sharp has collaborated on the systen with Dolby and uses its Audistry technology - which users can activate by pushing just one button.

This enhances the sound coming from the system "making it richer, bigger and better - and creating a personalised experience for music and movie lovers", says Sharp.

Audistry's technology includes intelligent volume control designed to correct for sudden volume changes in music and movies and a natural bass enhancer for speaker systems.

The HT-DV50H also offers HDMI output, DivX enabled technology, a five-mode pre-programmed electronic equaliser; FM stereo digital tuner and a remote control.

Compatible with DVDs and with a USB port available, the HT-DV50H supports the playback of JPEG, MP3 and WMA format material.

And for those of you scared of blasting your upstairs neighbours into space, there's also the smaller and cheaper HT-DV40H system, which is priced £299.
