How and Why To Build a Hush Box For Your Projector By Jerry Del Colliano February 2004 As long as video projectors have been in high-performance A/V systems, fan noise has been an unwanted byproduct. In my early 20s, while working at Cello Music and Film Los Angeles, Mark Levinson and the Cello design team rigged a way to change the fan of the “Cello” (rebadged Ampro) eight- and nine-inch CRT projectors that we sold. While this ultimately became a service problem for Cello dealers, the reduced fan noise on the projectors was warmly received by our well-heeled client base. Today, nearly 10 years after my days of designing and selling systems at Cello, digital projectors are fast becoming the king of the home video hill. While ultra-expensive CRT projectors still produce the absolute best video image, their cost, size, weight, need for service and pathetic resale values make the brighter, smaller and less expensive digital ...

We have changed up the format for our Best Of awards this year to reflect the top 100 audio-video and home theater products in the world. Any product found on this list is worthy of consideration for any good AV system. While we pay due respect to ultimate products that cost a fortune, special attention is paid to more affordable gear. You’ll see high-performance gear that doesn’t break the bank making its way towards the top of the list this year.

AV Education on RHT What Is DVD-Audio? Written by Jerry Del Colliano What Is DVD-Audio? DVD-Audio is one of the two competing pre-recorded audio formats positioned to replace the Compact Disc after the CD’s 20-year reign as the ruler of the world’s music stores. DVD-Audio is derived from the same DVD disc that DVD-Video movies are recorded on. However, with DVD-Audio, the space on the disc is configured to optimize high-resolution audio, surround sound and added value features. On most standard DVD-Audio discs, you will find three different audio playback options: 1) A high-resolution stereo track that is often 24 bit and 96 or even 192 kHz resolution. 2) A default DVD-Video compatible surround sound track that is usually a lossy (AKA compressed) surround sound format like DTS (3:1 compression) or Dolby Digital (12:1 compression). 3) A MLP surround sound mix. MLP stands for Meridian Lossless Packing and it is the highest quality audio for surround ...

AV Education on RHT: Bob Hodas' Sound Tips Part 2 June 2003 When we last left off, we had moved your speakers all over the room until you found the spot where they sounded best. Ideally, when finished, you realized that you had improved your room in more ways than simply buying any new piece of gear on the market. I know speaker setup is a daunting task and some of you may be still procrastinating. That’s okay, because I can’t provide all of the necessary information in just one column. There’s more help this month. For instance, did I remember to tell you it would be much easier if you removed those speaker spikes first? No? Shame on me! Those spikes will have an audible effect on the low end, but you don’t need them for the initial placement. Even with my high-resolution gear, I can’t measure any difference in frequency, phase or ...

AV Education on RHT How I Tuned My Own (Difficult) Room – Without Blocking The View of The Golden Gate Bridge By Bob Hodas Last time we looked at a room that needed help but was not a big challenge. So as promised, now we get to look at my mess. I’ve been in this house for about 13 years and the system has evolved from large stereo speakers to small, stand mounted stereo speakers, to a 5.1 setup with five Meyer Sound Labs HD-1s and two Revel B-15s for the LFE channel. While I like to watch movies, my primary focus is music. So for me, the speaker placement took precedent over everything else. It was important to have a setup that conformed to the same standards by which I tune studios. At the same time, when my girlfriend moved in, I had to figure out a way to make some compromises ...
