Dorm Necessity 101: Norcent Home Theater System

Published: Mon Sep 26 2005

San Dimas, CALIF. ¡ª September 22, 2005 - Along with the laptop, a closet stuffed with clothes, athletic gear, and ¨C oh yeah ¨C a textbook or two, there is a new item fast becoming a dorm room staple on college campuses across America: a Home Theater System. Norcent, a leading supplier of consumer electronics, has two systems that are perfect for dorm life. They are the compact and affordable DP-2700 and DP-5000. Each designed with an attractive low-profile chassis.

¡°Living in a dorm has changed,¡± commented Jennifer Long, Norcent CEO. ¡°It wasn¡¯t that long ago that having a transistor radio would suffice as entertainment. Now home theater systems provide a full range of entertainment options for dorm dwellers. Our Norcent Home Theater Systems are very stylish, feature rich, and, maybe most important, are priced for a college student¡¯s ¨C or Mom and Dad¡¯s ¨C budget.¡±

A special feature of these attractive systems, especially if the student is not taking advanced engineering, is they offer easy-to-install functionality. Both also feature a single-disk Progressive Scan DVD player, with Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic surround sound for realistic, high-fidelity sound and life like video quality.

A full-function remote control allows users to effortlessly navigate the display and on-screen menus. They also feature eight different language soundtracks and captions in 32 languages (the latter two, of course, students will claim are useful for studying foreign languages). An AM/FM PLL digital tuner, with 40 memory presets, is also included.

The DP-2700
The 350-watt (PMPO) DP-2700 is a complete system in a thin, low-profile design. It plays virtually any media a college student would want (for at least this semester)¡ªDVD, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, CD, CD-R/-RW, MP3-CD, and Picture-CD. It comes complete with five speakers and a subwoofer (front, 50w x 2; center, 50w x 1; surround, 50w x 2; and sub, 100w x 1).

The DP-5000
For larger dorms or dorm/apartments, the DP-5000 delivers a full 600 watts (PMPO). It too is fully compatible with a variety of media formats, including DVD, CD, CD-R/-RW, MP3, DVD+R/+RW, and DVD-R/-RW. The five speakers and subwoofer (front, 80w x 2; center, 80w x 1; surround, 80w x 2; and sub, 200w x 1) provide an exceptional, rich and full sound.

The Norcent DP-2700 and DP-5000 Home Theater Systems are in stock and ready for immediate shipping. They carry an MSRP of $109.99 (DP-2700) and $129.99 (DP-5000).
