Incredible Surround" is an audio technology from Philips that dramatically magnifies the sound field to immerse you in the audio. Using state-of-the-art electronic phase shifting, Incredible Surround" mixes sounds from left and right in such a way that it expands the virtual distance between the two speakers. This wider spread greatly enhances the stereo effect and creates a more natural sound dimension. Incredible Surround" allows you to experience total surround with greater depth and width of sound, without the use of additional speakers.
A DVI-D input makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from source to screen. By eliminating the conversion of the digital signal to analogue, it delivers an unblemished image. Thanks to the non-degraded signal, you get less flicker and a clearer picture. The DVI input is fully backward compatible with HDMI sources, and also uses HDCP copy protection.
An FM radio capable of storing 40 preset stations is built in. On-screen station naming makes navigation simple, and a handy Clock Screensaver is also included for use while listening.
