Sony Playstation 2
Introduction Fueled by a strategic game of supply and demand, Sony’s eagerly anticipated Playstation 2 became the latest "must have" item for consumers this past holiday season. Sony smashed sales records, rapidly selling their first batch of systems in a matter of days. Store shelves have remained essentially void of Playstation 2’s through March 2001. Sony claimed that they could not keep up with the demand for the system, but many people in the gaming industry feel that this was not really the case. By releasing only a relatively small number of the machines, Sony pulled a PR stunt that was more powerful than any ad campaign could have ever been. Holiday shoppers who had to have the hottest gaming system on the market were paying as much as $2,000 for the Playstation 2 on eBay.com. This astronomical figure is nearly seven times the $299 that the system currently sells for in stores. Now ...

Apogee PSX 100 24-bit/96 kHz A/D Converter
Introduction You may be thinking, "Jerry, why are you reviewing a DAC? Everyone knows that DACs are an integrated part of AV preamps these days." I must admit that, while I own a pretty badass AV preamp (Proceed AVP), when I merged my dedicated music system with my theater system, I suffered a number of musical maladies. At the time, I had also moved all of the equipment to an entirely new room with all sorts of acoustic problems, including but not limited to a glass front wall and a 20-foot by eight-foot-tall mirrored left side wall. The result was a room that sounded understandably bright. You may consequently ask, "Hey, Jerry, why did you move to such a joint?" The answer is, the view, my man. Imaging is defined by being able to see from the Capitol Records Building to Catalina Island while jamming out to your system, but I had lots of ...

Sennheiser HD-600 Headphones
Introduction Headphones are not a particularly glamorous product and are often overlooked by many consumers. For years, I have paid practically no attention to headphones or headphone amplifiers. I didn’t know what I was missing but, after experiencing the best in headphones, I doubt I will ever be without a pair of good headphones again. I spent time listening to two top-of-the-line dynamic headphones, the Grado RS-1s and the Sennheiser HD-600’s. There are some more exotic designs, including electrostatic headphones costing upwards of $10,000, but these represent the top-of-the-line dynamic headphones from two well-respected companies. I turned to Tyll at Headroom, a company specializing in headphones and headphone accessories, to get started on this article. I received a quick lesson not only in headphones but also in headphone amplifiers. I used Headroom’s "Maxed Out Home" headphone amplifier, as well as a Grado Reference headphone amplifier, in my testing. The Headroom amplifier has special circuitry that provides amazing imaging ...

Sega Dreamcast
Introduction Some of you may be a bit surprised to see a review of a video gaming system here in the pages of Audio Revolution. Home video game systems can be a significant part of home entertainment and are relatively inexpensive and easy to add to your home theater. The Sega Dreamcast is the current king of the hill and will not face any serious competition until Sony’s second generation Playstation is out (reportedly later this year). The Dreamcast is a technical powerhouse with many new and innovative features. The Dreamcast has a 200 mhz, 128-bit CPU. Coupled with the unit’s NEC VR chip set, this allows intricate three-dimensional graphics to be drawn quickly and smoothly. Most other console games have either 32- or 64-bit processing. The Dreamcast’s 128-bit processor allows processing of data in groups two to four times larger in size. The result is faster and smoother gaming. For audio processing, Sega went to Yamaha. Yamaha ...
