Pixa Announces All-in-One DVD/DLP Projector

From Pixa’s press announcement:

For the technophile who wants all home theater components consolidated in a single package, Pixa, Inc., is introducing the Pixa DHT-100 All-in-One DLP Home Theater System — the first Digital Light Processing (DLP)-based home projector that includes a built-in DVD player.  This 8.4-pound powerhouse also features an optional 2.4G wireless 2.1 speaker kit, front and rear projection capabilities, and an MSRP of $1,999.
