Sony intros NHS-130C rack system that hooks on iPod and streams HD

It’s always a good idea to stack all your electronics in a central location especially if it’s a home theatre system. Sony has launched the NHS-130C rack system, which is designed to play Blu-ray and other 1080p HD videos around as many as 13 individual zones; moreover it can supply a primary zone, like the living room, with 7.1-channel surround audio. The device features a 160GB hard drive to store music in a central location, a SIRIUS satellite radio tuner, and an in-wall iPod dock that uses just one cradled Apple player to supply music to the entire home. The system also includes a 400-disc CD and DVD changer and can integrate with many home automation systems. This includes Control4 systems that link climate, lighting, and security to home theater equipment.

Sony NHS-130C will be out in spring and prices will range between $40,000 and $85,000 depending on what you install plus the number of features installed throughout the house.
