Polk Audio I-Sonic ?

Hi All,

Has anyone heard of or tried the Polk Audio I-Sonic? http://isonic.polkaudio.com/

I am looking to replace my Bose Wave Radio with something else. This Polk Audio I-Sonic looks great because it has a built in DVD player.

Couple questions:

1) I moved to london and don't currently have a DVD player. I'd like to use this as an all in one system since its' so compact and space is an issue. Will this DVD player play the DVDs in London?

2) What is the voltage of this as the voltage in London is 220v.

3) Are there any other type of high end systems like this Polk Audio and Bose Wave Radio I should be looking at to meet my needs?

Thank you

Also, does anyone know where I can purchase one? I will be in NYC next week and I would love to pick one up, however, i called the dealers found here: http://www.polkaudio.com/dealerlocator/index.php and none of them even knew what it was!

PolkAudio is shipping them online, but i am trying to avoid paying VAT on the shipment...

Haven't heard of it before. I'm guessing it is like all the rest of these devices....very pricey for what you get. They don't even do digital audio (no surround sound) or component video (native DVD format). A $40 DVD player will likely beat the specs on this one. Good radios are around $150, although not satellite radio. Not all cute in one box, though.
