Atlantic Technology System 370 THX Speaker System
Introduction Trying to find the right home theater speaker system can be an anxiety-ridden process, but listening even once to the warm, dynamic and articulate performance of the Atlantic Technology System 370 may be the audio Prozac that will relieve your blues. The 371LR and 373C are sealed box designs consisting of two 6 inch coated composite graphite woofers, two 3-inch composite graphite midrange drivers and a 1-inch silk-dome tweeter arranged in a D'appolito configuration. The rear surrounds, deemed "TwinPolar," have their two 5-1/4-inch composite graphite woofers and two inch silk dome tweeters mounted on two sides of a triangular cabinet. Both speakers have frequency responses of 80Hz-20kHz. The 372PBM subwoofer is powered by a 275-watt amp that can drive the 15-inch-high excursion cone to a peak SPL of 108dB with a frequency response of 25Hz-500Hz. The System 370 retails for $4,300 without the optional floor pedestals. Performance One of the biggest challenges faced by a manufacturer is to ...

Monitor Audio Silver 4 Bookshelf Speakers
Introduction A huge sound in a small package solidly sums up the performance of the Monitor Audio Silver 4 speakers ($849 a pair) and ASW 210 subwoofer ($999). The small 15.5-inch by eight-inch main speakers, coupled with the 200-watt self-powered subwoofer, were a welcome surprise. Sat/sub speaker systems are a dime a dozen these days and that’s what a lot of them are worth. Just as in my past experiences with Monitor Audio products, I was not disappointed in the least. The patented cone material for all drivers, C-CAM (Ceramic Coated Aluminum Magnesium alloy), is light and rigid. The Silver 4’s are a two-way design, front-ported, with a 6.5-inch mid-bass driver and a gold dome tweeter. There are two sets of sturdy, gold-plated binding posts on each speaker for bi-wiring. The subwoofer is outfitted with two 10-inch drivers, one downfiring and the other forward-firing. While the Silver 4’s are small and capable of sitting comfortably on ...

NHT VT-1.2 Home Theater System
Introducton NHT's VT-1.2 System ($2000 - 5 channels) is one of a growing niche of mid-priced, attractive, relatively small, highly efficient, home theater loudspeaker packages. The 1.2 system is perfectly suited to run with a either an upper end A/V receiver (Denon, Onkyo, Pioneer Elite) or separate decoder-preamp and 5 channel amplifier (Millennium, Cinepro, Acurus). With deep roots in high end audio with successful loudspeaker designs like the 3.3 and an aesthetically appealing and sized design this 1.2 system delivers on its huge potential. It's rare that a speaker's physical attributes catch my eye but the NHT (Now Hear This) 1.2 Home Theater speaker package is gorgeous in a high gloss black laminate, resembling rosewood. The main VT-1.2 Towers are about 3 feet tall and very skinny at 5.5 inches. They are really no deeper than most speakers but strike a very attractive, narrow profile, due to the side firing 8 inch woofer. The upper ...

Introduction Many loudspeaker manufacturers tout their products as a great value for the price. NHT does more than beat its chest about such bargains; it’s the company’s philosophy. At $750.00 for the pair, the SuperTwo system is no exception. Since 1986, NHT has challenged the notion that there is a direct correlation between emptying your bank account and acquiring the very best sound. The guiding star of NHT’s product designs is based upon the sciences of psychoacoustics, human auditory perception and love for music and sound. Each model is designed with both acoustic and aesthetic parameters of the home environment in mind. In addition, this company believes in putting the cost of production in the mouth of sonic quality – real world sort of stuff. The nuts and bolts are as follows: The NHT SuperTwo is a three-way tower system, which includes a 1" fluid-cooled soft dome tweeter, 6.5" midrange woofer and a 6.5" long-throw ...
