Monster Home Theatre Remote – Retro Cool and Affordable (Unlike Other Things From Monster)
Monster unveiled plenty of new kit at the Consumer Electronics Association’s New York showcase including a super-thin cable for HDMI, high-speed cables for HDMI, a tabletop universal remote, and new speed tiers for its PowerNet networking solution.
To be honest it’s the controller from Monster that’s caught my eye purely because of its retro-ness.
I can’t find any dimesions for it but it is said to be a â€œtabletopâ€ controller so that could all depend on the size of table.
Is it 8 inches or 28 inches? I just don’t know.
Monster say that:
Monster will release the MCC AV50 Home Theater Controller, a tabletop universal remote control. The device includes a portable game console-like design, Web-based setup, and simple touch commands like â€œPlay a DVDâ€ or â€œListen to Satellite Radio.â€
Any wiser? All I know is that it looks kinda cool and for a Monster product it’s reasonably priced (unlike their cables).
Itâ€™ll cost $50 and colour me interested.
As for those cables – they’re really quite expensive but really – who actually buys them?
