I can’t help but wonder if Sharp has set a record for the most TVs announced in one day as they are putting out 13 LCD TVs with built-in Blu-ray recorders. These AQUOS DX2 series sets come in the sizes that you see here, with the 40, 46, and 52-inchers hitting you with a contrast ratio of 15,000:1 at 1080p, while all the other smaller models come in at a 7000:1 contrast ratio. The prices will vary as the 26-inch model costs $1,700, while the 52-inch models retail at $4,800. So far, this line of Blu-ray recording Sharp AQUOS TVs are slated for a Japan-only release.
