The DX Series also features 2X Mode and 3X Mode with Full-Capture Extended HD Recording, which allows recording of audio surround-sound data and extended HD recording while keeping intact the program data links embedded in the original video.

The TVs are made from a Kameyama LCD panels that promise to offer high-quality images with smooth images. Plus, the DX Series comes complete with Sharp?s 1-Bit digital amp to faithfully recreate original sounds and its side-port Bass Reflex Speaker to deliver powerful deep bass sounds from a compact sound system.

The built-in Blu-ray recorder supports playback of BD video, BD-RE Ver. 2.1 (single layer/dual layer), BD-R Ver. 1.1/1.2/LTH (single layer/dual layer), DVD-RW/-R, DVD video, standard audio CDs, CD-RW/-R (audio CD format), DVD-RAM, DVD+RW/+R (video format finalized).
