Wow!  The only feature it is lacking is an HDMI output.

rayzha,
i disagree… some audio systems do not allow a mix of video inputs. also with many people with HD tvs especially those that would be in the market for this an up conversion would have been nice

Everyd1, the article mentions that pricing hasn’t been determined yet.

I think this thing looks incredibly cool.

Hi Gents,
Sorry for the delay in pricing.  It has just been released. US retail will be at $999.00USD. Turn It Up!

Does the Alfie have audio output for speakers, and if so, what are the limitations/specifications of it’s amplifier? Nothing in the product specs suggests that there is, but the photo of the rear panel appears to have speaker jacks.

Specifically, I’d like to know if I can wire it to Bose 301 Series V shelf speakers without complication.

On a side note, Consumer Reports has no information on Roth Audio.  Is there any consensus on the quality and reliability of their products?

Thanks in advance,
Matt
