The Motorola DCP501 is an all-in-one receiver from 2003 originally retailing for $900. It simplifies the hookup of everything from cable TV and satellite receivers, and unifies audio and video media playback and amplification within one device. It combines the function of a digital cable receiver, a DVD/CD/MP3 player, a 100-watts-per-channel surround receiver, and an AM/FM stereo receiver. This piece has extensive input and output ports, including front-panel audio/video hookups for a camcorder or gaming console and a Toslink optical input for a direct digital-audio hookup with an external device. A prominent feature in this piece is that any video input source can be converted and/or channeled to any of the three video outputs for maximum convenience when using the DCP501 with a VCR, DVR (digital video recorder), or other device.
