Kenwood VRS-N8100

eHomeUpgrade has the scoop on the new Kenwood receiver that has media streaming features. According to Kenwood's website, the MSRP is $800.

Quoting from the Kenwood press release:

Cutting-edge features that set the VRS-N8100 apart from similar products include:

  • The ability to directly accept streaming digital music, movies and photos from any networked PC to a stereo or television via the remote and TV user interface.

  • Kenwood's new "Supreme" audio playback system that restores high pitched audio tones (treble) that may have been eliminated due to MP3 and WMA compression, thus giving digital music its full range of sound back.

  • Media management is enabled through the use of an on-screen GUI interface along with a remote control to select sound, images and animation files on a PC.

  • Digital memory support based on an optional PC card adapter for compact flash, memory stick, smart media, and SD/MMC card support.

  • Popular digital media format support includes MPEG-1, MPEG-2, XviD, MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV, JPEG, BMP, GIF and PNG.
  • I should also add that it has a HDTV compatible component out video connection.
