Gizmodo has an article on a new Kenwood AV Amplifier. It plays MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and Xvid video files. Also it play MP3, WMA and OggVorbis audio files. There is a 10/100 Ethernet interface to stream formats.
I wonder how much this will cost when it comes to the US. Also I wonder what the video interface will be. In order to make most computer video content to look good on a tv, especially a Hi-def one, there will have to be a good line doubler. I am sure that the hardware on this box will be pretty amazing.
