Evett and Shaw Elan Loudspeakers
Introduction The Evett and Shaw Elan ($2,200) with the matching Flatte 50 amplifier ($2,000) is the first system on the market dedicate to high performance sound for your desktop environment. Most audio/video enthusiasts spend far more time at work then they do in the sweet spot of their high performance audio/video systems at home. With the tremendous success of MP3 audio and the proliferation of CD-ROM and DVD drives in personal computers, we are automatically outfitted with a front end for music to empower us in our personal workspaces. The Evett and Shaw Elan The Evett and Shaw Elan is the best-sounding, truly small, nearfield loudspeaker I have heard to date. When I say truly small, I mean these suckers are tiny at 10 inches tall by five inches wide and 11 inches deep. The Evett and Shaw Elans create sound through a 3.25-inch-wide, full- range speaker driver. A second driver that is slightly larger is installed ...

Mirage AVS-Series MicroSystem
Introduction There's a new contender on the mini-home theater block, the Mirage AVS-Series MicroSystem. This young, up-and-coming lightweight delivers a great combination and has the wherewithal to go the distance for a mere $500 for the five-piece system. Throw in an extra $300 for the active subwoofer and you're in the 5.1 game for $800. And now for the introductions. The AVS-200 is the loudspeaker used to cover the front and rear of your listening arena. A total of four AVS-200s are included on this fight card. The tale of the tape is as follows: Two-way high-performance acoustic suspension enclosure including a 1 inch textile dome tweeter and a 3+1/2 inch woofer with polypropylene cone. The physical dimensions are 7 inch (h) x 4 1/8 inch (w) x 5 inch (d). The enclosure utilizes a revolutionary crosscutting and crimping technique allowing a single piece of wood to be molded seamlessly, greatly reducing resonance and defraction. ...

Energy e:XL-28P Loudspeakers
Introduction The e:XL-28P is the flagship three-way tower speaker system of the e:XL series. This system is priced at a very attractive $1,200.00 per pair, including powered side-firing subwoofers. When I first saw the e:XL-28P, I thought it belonged in a museum, not at a trade show booth. The elegant lines of the enclosure, with its serene Rosewood finish (which is also offered in Black Ash and Northern Light Birch), was a pleasure just to look at. However, we all know appearances can be deceiving. After sitting through a demonstration of the e:XL-28P, it had not only caught eye and ear, it had warmed my heart - a wonderful example of form meeting function. I couldn’t wait to get a pair home to review. Starting from the inside out, the e:XL-28P offers a three-quarter-inch, magnetically shielded aluminum dome tweeter suspended on cloth for superb transient response and low distortion. The midrange section utilizes a six-and-one-half-inch magnetically shielded, injection-molded ...

Polk Audio RM6500 Home Theater System
Introduction It is truly a wonderful time to be entering the home theater market. Prices on systems are at all-time lows and the cost-to-value ratios are at all-time highs. The RM6500 is no exception to this trend. This RM6500 is a space-saving six-speaker, five-channel home theater loudspeaker system offered at a modest $1,099. The nuts, bolts and polymer aggregate material: As I began to set up this system, I noticed that the mini-satellites were heavy for their size – six-and-three-quarters inches high by four inches wide by five inches deep. After reading up on the subject, I learned that the satellite enclosures are made up of a polymer aggregate material that contains the appearance and acoustic characteristics of stone. This stone-like substance helps limit the enclosure from resonating, which is a good thing since the RM6500 includes a neat little bracketing system that allows you to mount the satellites against surrounding walls. Without this resonating ...

Sunfire True Subwoofer Junior Subwoofer
Introduction The Sunfire True Subwoofer Junior is the latest in Sunfire’s line of subwoofers priced competitively at $895. Those of you who are regular readers of AudioRevolution.com should be familiar with this series of subwoofers. For those of you who are new to these pages or who just need a recap, here it is: big subwoofer performance, little box. The Junior is a nine-inch cube that weighs a beefy 28 pounds. This tiny cube can reach down to an amazing 22 Hz thanks to two long excursion six-inch drivers powered by a 1200-watt amplifier. The technology involved in moving so much air with these two small drivers is pretty interesting. Sunfire uses an advanced amplifier design that averages about 120 watts, but can produce up to 1200 watts when necessary, feeding horizontally opposed drivers. One driver is passive; both have long excursions that permit the displacement of large amounts of air, the true key to ...
