Totem Dreamcatcher Review
One of the biggest challenges a speaker designer has is making a very compact, low mass speaker sound lifelike.  There have been a number of notable “book shelf” designs, like the Rogers LS3/5a and its variants, the Proac Tablette, and the Paradigm Atom, among many others.  A successful execution of such a speaker certainly shows off the designer's skill. The fact is, that mini monitors are valid designs in that many music lovers are relegated to smaller spaces, and don’t require, nor can they accommodate, full range speakers.Totem Acoustic is based in Montreal, Canada. The company was founded in 1987, and makes a complete line of well reviewed loudspeakers ranging from in wall to full range floor standers.  I had heard much about Totem products, but up until recently I have not had an opportunity to spend any time with ...

Paradigm MilleniaOne 5.0 System and SE Subwoofer Review
AVRev Readers know it is no secret I am an admirer of Paradigm for their reasonably priced, great sounding loudspeakers. Their product line is extremely deep, with state of the art statement speakers at the top, as well as “lifestyle”, compact, yet highly engineered and attractive looking monitors and subwoofers.  I was offered a chance to review Paradigm’s newish MilleniaOne series speakers, which consist of two MilleniaOne front left and right satellites, one MilleniaOne Center Channel speaker, and two MilleniaOne Surrounds. There is a matching sub available, but I received a Special Edition (SE) subwoofer (which usually pairs with the previously reviewed SE 1 Monitors), along with the Paradigm  PBK-1 (Pefect Bass Kit) to use with the system.The speakers are small, measuring 7.75" tall, 4.5" wide and 5.75" deep. They feature a die-cast aluminum enclosure with a high gloss finish ...

Paradigm SE 1 Loudspeakers Review
Canadian speaker manufacturer Paradigm has been at it  for over 25 years. And by “at it” I mean designing.award winning loud speakers across all price points and for every conceivable application. Full disclosure, I have admired Paradigm for a long time. A few years ago, I bought a pair of Paradigm Atoms, probably one of the best speakers made under $500 and I helped  friend buy a pair of Studio 60’s floor standers, and came away with even more impressed with the company and its offerings. I felt the Studio 60 compared very favorably with speakers costing at least 2 or 3 times as much. Last year, I reviewed the Monitor 9  V.6 floorstander , and ended up buying the review pair for my home theater set up.The company offers speakers for every level of audiophile and home theater enthusiast.  ...

Altec Lansing Octiv Duo Review
You just can’t get away from the iPod.  It dominates the mobile audio space and everyone seems to have one these days either in iPhone form or the standard iPod Touch.  While Apple’s perfected the personal experience of music with their portable line of iPods, they have left the sharing of music up to 3rd part manufactures.  The iPods’s internal speakers certainly don’t cut it, so companies like Altec Lansing have developed solutions for music lovers that want to share what they are listening to with family and friends.  But what do you do with multiple devices iPods or iPhones in the mix?  Fighting over the stereo system can be avoided with a dual dock device, such as the Octiv Duo (MSRP $99.99).  Altec Lansing takes that concept a step further by introducing a way to mix the tracks between ...

Mordaunt-Short Mezzo Loudspeakers and Subwoofer Review
I'm a dog lover. I have two English Springer Spaniels, 7 years apart in age, and both are my favorites. I would hate to choose between the two and don't think I could. In the same respect, it's hard to separate my thoughts of Mordaunt-Short's Mezzo speakers from Cambridge Audio's Azur 650R AV Receiver. I lived with both for several months, and the pairing took my living room/entertainment room to a new level. The Mordaunt-Short Mezzo lineup includes six speakers, four of which feature in this review: a pair of Mezzo 2 stand-mount speakers ($795), a pair of Mezzo 6 floorstanders ($1,495), one Mezzo 5 center speaker ($595) and the Mezzo 9 subwoofer ($1,295). Design & SpecsThe Mezzos all feature curved cabinets, which according to Mordaunt-Short, “discourages the build up of standing waves for a cleaner and more realistic sound.” ...
