SAS 770 Checkpoint 3D Speaker Alignment Tool
Introduction Sound Alignment Systems has developed the easiest and most intuitive instrument for hassle-free speaker alignment ever devised. A laser is placed inside a precision-machined aluminum housing, allowing an installer (or home enthusiast) a method for determining the optimum loudspeaker placement in a matter of minutes. This handy instrument has taken the trial and error out of speaker alignment for home theaters. In addition to the laser tool itself, SAS provides several optional accessories to assist in various alignment tasks. The R2-D2 Tripod Rotary Base is used to set the angular alignment of any speaker or component in relation to another object or room position. Base plates can be attached to the speaker baffle so the 770 can be fitted flush to the speaker for hands free operation. The lens kit includes a line lens, beam splitter, adapter base and protractor plate for specialized alignment procedures.

dCS Elgar D/A Processor
Introduction The dCS Elgar digital-to-analog converter is a ground breaking, precedent setting, digital processor. The future of digital is, to say it politely, uncertain. Everyone knows standard 16 bit - 44.1 MHz sampling rate CDs are not the best digital performance we can currently achieve. The question is what will the next format be? Will it be 24 bit - 96 KHz, 24 bit - 192 KHz, Sony and Phillips' DSD, or something else. We're pretty sure the audio delivery method will be a DVD, but as for the format, there is quite a bit of speculation. Investing in a digital processor (DAC) for your audio system can be as risky investing in CCC rated bonds. The potential sonic returns can be amazing and worthy of the investment, but if technology changes you'll be lucky to get 20 cents on the dollar. Sensing this and seeing that most other high end DACs become ...

Theta Chroma HDCD D/A Converter
Introduction The advantages of a good digital-to-analog converter (DAC) shouldn't be underestimated. Understanding the importance of the DAC within the audio chain, yields a new level of appreciation for the superior performance capabilities of digital audio. You've heard the term many times, "Garbage In, Garbage Out." This refers to the concept that the output of an audio signal can be no better than the input signal. Conversely, the ability to perfectly reproduce the original input signal can be compromised at any point along the audio path on the way to the outputs. The sonic qualities of any digital device are greatly effected by the DAC. The ideal DAC accepts the incoming digital bitstream, converts it back to an analog electronic signal, representing exactly the original waveform, and introduces no noise or timing errors (such as jitter) that would effect the output. There are many fine CD and LD Players on the market with exceptional internal ...

Clark Synthesis Absolute Tactile Sound Transducer
Introduction It is easy to become jaded when discrete 5.1 digital surround, crystal clear DVDs and 500 channels of Direct TV are all common place in a current home theater. How will today's home theater enthusiast elevate his or her system to the next plateau of performance eliciting the next level of emotion? What is missing? What is next? How about a speaker devoted specifically to that portion of the frequency spectrum that is felt rather than heard - starting at about 5 Hz and continuing up into the lower frequencies around 2000 Hz. That's exactly what the Clark Absolute Tactile Sound System does via its little, clear, `spaceship' shaped device. The Clark Transducer is a tiny device which brings the sense of touch into the home theater experience, adding a dimension to your music and movies that you may never have known you were missing. Some years ago Pioneer and others had Hi-Fi reclining ...
