I spend half my time just keeping up with this stuff! I actually first heard of that model back in February/March timeframe.

I hadn't seen it, Daniel. It doesn't surprise me though. Sony has been "borrowing" my ideas for 20+ years now!

It does look a bit clunky, however. I suspect that was to fit in a speaker large enough to make some decent sound.

How long do you think it'll take them to add VIDEO to the remote? I know it can be done, since I'm basically already doing it. With a RF transmitter I got at, I send whatever A/V output I want to my little Casio 2.5" pocket TV. It's a power hog, and about as heavy as a pronto. Making it a bit more ergonomic and adding the circuit board of a Cinema7 shouldn't make it too huge. If the LCD can be a pronto-like remote interface too, then no (few) hard buttons would be required.

Are you listening, Sony?

There's been a number of prototypes of video-enabled remotes... I think it would be a great idea. Also pack in internet access and whole-home control into a handheld unit... ah, bliss.

Daniel, how about a quick impression of those Sony DD wireless headphones? Are they worth the money?

Daniel: SECONDED! I have been waiting for your impression of the Sony MDR-DS5100 for some time. You will recall my disappointment with the thin bass and bogus, artificial so-called surround produced by the 5000.

How about it -- please? :^)

are wireless headphones any good anyhow ? They all use analog frequency modulation, right ? When I read the professional reviews at they all mention hissing and noise and interruptions in the signal as you move more than 2 meter away from the transmitter. The thing is, you put Hifi into it at one end, and you get FM-radio (although it's at a higher frequency and has larger bandwidth) out of it at the other end.

Most wireless phones are digital these days, why not make wireless headphones digital (and at an affordable price please)

Just my two cents :-)

Sennheiser, only the name is enough. Go for it.
