CES 2018: Sony’s New 4K Projector Is A $30,000 Piece Of Furniture That Beams A 120-Inch Picture
This Sony projector is definitely not your father’s projector. Sony’s Ultra Short Throw LSPX-A1 Projector was introduced at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show and it is not only a 4K projector, but also a stylish piece of furniture as well as a room-filling sound system. The LSPX-A1 is a beautiful marble-topped credenza equipped with a short throw projector that can beam a 120-inch picture onto your wall. That’s right, no hanging a projector from your ceiling and having it stand out like a sore thumb. Besides the artificial marble top, the frame is finished in half-mirror aluminum and has a wooden shelf so it seemlessly looks like part of your living room furniture.
As far as performance goes Sony’s SXRD laser projector has 4K resolution, reaches a peak brightness of 2500 lumens, and is HDR-compatible. For 4K content, the projector is compatible with $99 Roku Ultra, a $179 Apple TV 4K, or your favorite 4K Blu-ray player to watch video “with unprecedented detail, color, and contrast.” By placing the projector a mere 9.6 inches from the wall, it can beam a 120-inch image to your living room wall. No need for a soundbar for this projector either (And you shouldn’t for the extreme price of this projector). The Sony projector features built-in speakers with organic glass tweeters installed on the front legs of the frame. There’s a subwoofer underneath the unit and three midrange speakers (center, left and right) hidden inside that provide 360-degree audio.
