Velodyne SMS-1 Subwoofer Management System
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. A couple of years ago Velodyne launched their Digital Drive series of subwoofers which included a digital signal processor, microphone, parametric equalizer and digital servo controlled subwoofer. The Digital Drive subwoofers received rave reviews including from’s own Christopher Zell. The Velodyne SMS-1 at $749 incorporates many of the features of the Digital Drive series, except of course the servo controlled subwoofer. The Subwoofer Management System features a full suite of controls housed in a svelte 1 rack unit high black box.

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. Antex Electronics saw this vacancy in the growing satellite radio portfolio and produced a high fidelity XM radio receiver of its own. Based in Torrance, CA, Antex is no stranger to the audio industry, boasting over 20 years of experience. In fact, Antex introduced the world’s first PC soundcard with 16-bit stereo CD quality sound ...

Microsoft Xbox 360
Introduction As a hard-core gamer for over 30 years and a programmer to boot, both in the arcade and on PC and consoles over multiple platforms, I can say with authority that the true test of any new game system or technology is how much better it is then anything else that’s come before it. And, what does it cost for that performance improvement? Back in the 1970s, when there was almost nothing in video games to play, we were happy to upgrade from black and white to color or from Pong to Space Invaders. Even to go as programmers from Basic or Fortran to DOS offered significant improvements to gaming that a few years before were simply unimaginable. This is because computer power was at a premium, as it was throughout the U.S. Apollo missions to the moon, and arcade games circa 1980 like Donkey Kong, Tempest, Frogger, or Pole Position required the ...

D-Box Quest Integrated Motion Simulation System
Introduction You have probably noticed the vast library of articles in covering the latest and greatest video and audio components our industry has to offer you, the enthusiastic consumer. Much of the focus for home theater has been on enhancing sight and sound stimuli while watching movies, but what about the other senses? Certainly seeing and hearing a car crash can be exciting. Amazingly, now you can add the sense of touch to the crash. For years, there have been products that you bolt to your chairs that make your butt rumble and shake, yet these systems succeeded in doing little more than making my rear itch. The D-BOX Quest chair is a completely new, revolutionary product that adds rumble and shaking effects to your simulated crash, as well as real-time motion, getting you one step closer to actually participating in the action. The D-BOX Quest recliner/loveseat uses a two-axis motion simulator system to ...
