The designers of Hitachi have made this new TV set 49R81. A new mid-range model with the characteristics of its time, a well calibrated image, and a high-performance processing.

Designed with a frequency of 50 Hz, you will have a good image quality; but don’t get carried away. It won’t be as detailed as reality.
In addition, Hitachi has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Ultra HD 4K image resolution.

The sound of the Hitachi 49R81

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 8 W.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.
