VIZIO Reveals Must-Have TV and Audio Line-Up Just in time for the Holidays
Line-up Features LED TVs from 24" to Flagship 70" LED Smart TV and Four New Sound Bars for a Superior Audio Experience
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for the holiday season, VIZIO, Inc., having recently received J.D. Power and Associates' "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with HDTVs" ranking1, announced today its new TV and audio line-up featuring an all LED-lit2 E-Series line and four newly designed sound bars. With the recently released E-Series 60" class Razor LED™ Smart TV (E601i) already being America's best-selling 60" flat-panel TV3, the line-up also includes the flagship E-Series 70" class Razor LED™ Smart TV (E701i) and new 2.0 and 2.1 E-Series and M-Series sound bars, the brand's holiday products are a great wish list addition, capable of taking any room in the home from ordinary to extraordinary at an unparalleled value.
Bringing superb picture quality to the forefront of the home, VIZIO's new, sleek E-Series HDTV holiday line-up features large screen size classes of 70", 60" (E601i), 50" (E500i), and 42" (E420i) LED Smart TVs, perfect for a living room or master bedroom upgrade, and smaller screen size classes of 39" (E390), 32" (E320), 29" (E291) and 24" (E241) LED units, ideal for the kitchen, den or office. Whether mounted on the wall, on a stand or in an entertainment center, the TVs look spectacular thanks to a slim outer bezel. A high-definition 1080p LED picture reveals richer, more vivid colors, while advanced local dimming technology delivers deeper blacks and brighter whites for overall stunning picture quality. Select E-Series models also feature an ultra-thin profile, less than two inches, and utilize Razor LED™ backlighting technology.
As the #1 brand in the US for WiFi flat-panel TVs4, VIZIO's 70", 60", 50", 42" and 32" Smart TVs feature VIZIO Internet Apps® with built-in WiFi for endless entertainment options and instant access to Netflix®, Amazon Instant Video, VUDU™, Hulu Plus, YouTube®, Pandora®, Facebook®, Twitter® and others, all with the push of a button on the smart remote5. As VIZIO's flagship model, the 70" Razor LED™ Smart TV sets the new standard for big screens, serving as an affordable luxury for the entertainment enthusiast.
"The VIZIO TV and audio holiday line-up provides access to leading edge innovations and modern design at an unbeatable total value," said Matt McRae, VIZIO Chief Technology Officer. "The must-have features and stunning picture quality in the 70" LED Smart TV deliver an unparalleled combination of top technology made affordable without compromising quality or customer support."
Further reinforcing VIZIO's position as America's #1 Sound Bar Company6, the new E-Series and M-Series Sound Bars amplify the TV-watching experience by offering advanced audio quality in a compact design to fit any space. The latest SRS technologies featured in the 2.0 and 2.1 models limit unwanted volume fluctuations and allow for a more immersive surround sound experience.
The new line-up of sound bars pumps out 95 – 101dB of sound with less than 1% total harmonic distortion7, providing audiophiles with a substantial quality and clarity upgrade when compared to standard HDTV speakers. The E-Series (SB4021E) and M-Series (SB4021M) 2.1 Home Theater Sound Bars feature wireless subwoofers, which generate deep bass from up to 60 feet away without the use of additional cables. All sound bars connect easily to most HDTVs with just one cable.
"The E-Series and M-Series 2.0 and 2.1 Sound Bars are the perfect audio upgrade solution, allowing consumers to hear their content the way it was intended to be heard, with rich, accurate audio quality that raises home theater audio expectations to another level," said John Schindler, VIZIO Vice President of Product Management. "All four sound bars feature a slim and sleek design to complement any size TV, creating a rich home theater experience."
Appealing to the eyes as well as the ears this holiday season, VIZIO's LED TVs and sound bars offer consumers great options for any room in the house at an outstanding value.
