Japan's TransTechnology is back and ready to loose their latest all-media streamer, the DVX-700. The box will ship in two flavors -- the tethered M10, or wireless 802.11b/g M20 -- and comes packing a DVD player and removable 3.5-inch HDD (optional) for sneakernetting your data back-and-forth to an optional USB or IDE enclosure for your PC. Otherwise, you can push your media around via DLNA support with like-spec'd devices on the home network. The unit touts a Sigma Designs' EM8620L media processor like the newer AVeL LinkPlayers we've already seen from I-O Data. As such, you can expect support for WMV HD, MPEG-1/2/4, XviD, WMV9 video; DVD-ripped ISO image files; and MP3, AAC, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, and WAV (PCM) audio. It even supports direct Google Video browsing and playback with the help of a USB keyboard and/or remote control. Video outs include DVI and Japan's digital D4 both supporting up to 1080i. Yours in Japan starting tomorrow for ¥27,800 ($237) with wires or ¥30,800 ($264) without.
