Introduction On June 16, 1999 Digital Video Express, LP announced that Divx would no longer be selling players or adding accounts to their service. Existing Divx owners would still be able to play Divx discs through June 30, 2001 and DVDs for the life of their players. Divx will provide $100.00 cash rebates to all consumers who purchased Divx-enhanced players prior to June 19, 1999. This rebate is offered to offset the higher price associated between the open DVD format and the Divx-enhanced players. The announcement also went on to say that "...all Divx discs, including those previously purchased by consumers and those remaining in retailer inventories, can be viewed on registered players anytime between now and June 30, 2001. Subsequent viewings will also be available during that period." Unfortunately, "Divx Silver", which allows for unlimited viewing will not be available during ...

I received an e-mail from a reader on the topic of why Generations X and Y are not audiophiles. There are many reasons. Baby boomers practically invented audiophilia in the late 1960s and 1970s. When Boomer men went to college, the first thing they did was to buy the biggest, badest hi-fi systems they could afford. From there, the addiction for hi-fi gear and new music only grew. In the following years, the high-end companies that own most of today’s market share developed from paternalistic, one-man operations into multi-million dollar companies. This business model lasted nearly until the end of the 1990s, seemingly catering well to an affluent male audience who kept buying more and more audio and video equipment, as well as software.

manufacturer: Middle Atlantic category: Feature Article review date: May 2000 reviewed by: Bryan Dailey Rack mounting of equipment has long been the standard in the professional recording industry. Audiophiles on the other hand have stereotypically been reluctant to embrace rackmounting of equipment and often opt for a minimalist approach. It is not unusual to see a $10,000 preamp sitting on a $20 Ikea table or even parked somewhere on floor. As the lines between home audio and theater systems begin to blur, more and more people are combining their systems and rackmounting them. There are many benefits to rackmounting your equipment and a well crafted rack can greatly improve a system in both functionality and aesthetics.

Introduction For years there's been talk about Digital Television (DTV), though it's only been in the last year that manufactures have delivered products to their dealers and networks have started minimal broadcasting of HDTV content. Leading the way, CBS has aired three football games, an episode of Chicago Hope and just recently an episode of 48 Hours. The Los Angeles affiliate, KCBS, provides reruns of existing HDTV programming and high-quality sights of the city on a separate digital channel. On April 26th, NBC made TV history when "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" became the first show to broadcast nightly in HD. DTV encompasses both the High Definition (HDTV) and standard definition (SDTV) formats. HDTV formats are displayed in the 16:9 aspect ratio with a potential vertical resolution of 1080p (progressive), though 1080i (interlaced) is the maximum scan rate for current TV ...
