As I have touched on in my last review of AKAI's very latest USB Turntable, the company has been in the business of electronics for a long, long time. And like any large experienced company, they are moving with the times and offering technology for today's standards.
With so many different forms of media needing to be played back in the average home of today, it seems fitting that AKAI has designed an all-in-one entertainment unit that attempts to handle a large whack of them all at once.
Claiming support for MP3/iPod/CD/DVD/Up-sampled DVD/USB/SD Flash cards/FM radio/Karaoke along with a HDMI output for up-sampled DVDs, we certainly have a lot of support here.
On the downside, because the cost of the unit sits at a thousand dollars large, we do not get support for the biggest and most exciting standard of them all right now; Blu-ray. Was this just an oversight? - It's hard to say at this point.
Given the potential peril associated with trying to do everything at once, the result is that often things get forgotten and nothing gets done well. This is going to be the biggest hurdle for AKAI to overcome with this product right from the start.
