Introduction It is not often that a product comes along that can either make a complex process one button simple or provide the tweaker with nearly unlimited adjustments in the pursuit of perfect sound but the Velodyne SMS-1 does just that.

Sennheiser HD 650 Reference Level Headphones
Introduction The consumer headphone market has evolved considerably over the last 30 years. Headphones have been used for better than a half-century as an integral tool in the studio for recording and mastering due to their accuracy and immediacy. As a teen, I owned a pair of higher-end headphones that I used to defy my music curfew. They allowed me to listen to my raucous music at concert volumes without disturbing or, better yet, even alerting the rest of the household. Although the sonic pureness of headphones has rarely been in question, the fact remains that headphones, regardless of size, have always been plagued with the reputation of being fatiguing to both wear and listen to for extended periods of time. Additionally, there has been resistance from many audiophiles, who place huge stock in soundstage accuracy and instrument placement. Sennheiser is no newcomer to the world of headphones. In fact, most recognize Sennheiser as the world ...

Antex XM-3000 Triple Play Satellite Receiver
Introduction Satellite radio has been gaining lots of attention the past few years, as millions upon millions of consumers continue to discover its benefits over traditional radio broadcasts. Nationwide availability, commercial-free music stations and vast amounts of talk shows are just part of satellite radio’s attraction. XM and Sirius are the two major companies providing satellite radio content for a combined population of nearly nine million subscribers in the United States and Canada. Many of the satellite radio products have been focused on portable and car deployments of the technology until recently, when Polk introduced one of the first home audio systems.

JVC HM-DH40000U D-VHS Player
Introduction I remember one glorious day in the early 1980s when my dad and I traveled to the local shopping mall in Echelon, New Jersey in search of some new electronic gadgets. The store in the mall was called Video Concepts and it was like a surreal playground for a nine-year-old. My dad, in his mid-30s, seemed to be having some fun, too. He turned the event into a shopping spree of epic proportions. We bought a fold-down big-screen TV, an Intellivision game station, a good dozen games and a VHS videotape recorder that resembled something the military would use to record Soviet spy activity. With movies costing a mere $100 per, we picked out some classics but rented even more. I can remember the salesman suggesting that this VCR was built to last a lifetime – even at nine, that seemed like a long time. 21 years later, VCRs have finally given ...
