Sony QUALIA 46" High Definition LCD Television, Model KDX46Q005

In technology, as in art, there are small steps, and there are giant leaps. Thanks to its artful application of revolutionary technology, QUALIA 005 sits quite alone in the latter group. Taking in the beautiful images on its full High Definition (1920 x 1080 p) screen is to see the future of video. To be treated to a brilliant clarity, an unprecedented depth of color, and a thing of startling beauty. QUALIA 005 sets a bold, new standard as the first High Definition TV to feature Sony's Triluminous™ technology - a proprietary system that uses separate red, green and blue light sources to illuminate the LCD panel. The result is unprecedented color control and an extraordinarilly brilliant picture that is quite literally off the scale, operating at 105% of the NTSC color gamut. QUALIA 005's remarkably vibrant image quality is perfectly complemented by a 100-watt sound system built around Sony's S-Master™ Digital Amplifier, which powers a built-in-ten-speaker system. Four woofers, four tweeters and two midrange speakers create an audio landscape that matches the video in beauty and complexity. To take in the images on the QUALIA 005's full high definition (1920 x 1080 p) screen is to see the future of video - and be treated to a brilliant clarity, an unprecedented depth of color, and a thing of startling beauty.
