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.” ...

Ambiance Acoustics Super Cubes Review
Every speaker design represents a mix of advantages and compromises. Achieving good reproduction across the frequency range from low to high often involves employing drivers of different sizes linked with a crossover network. The large majority of loudspeakers feature such designs. Yet, it's possible for a speaker to approach full-range response without a dedicated woofer and tweeter (or other arrangement) connected by a crossover network. Instead, several drivers of the same size can be employed by using an equalizer to shape response and boost the bottom end. The most famous such design is the Bose 901. This speaker, first introduced in 1968, relied on nine 4.5-inch cone drivers for an “omnidirectional” sound to simulate the sound of a live performance. The 901 cabinet featured an angled back containing eight of the nine drivers, while the front panel housed a single ...

Altec Lansing Octiv Stage 450 Review
The influence of Apple's iDevices in today's marketplace gets stronger with every passing day and the iPad is certainly taking the home theater market by storm.  Popular applications like Netflix, hulu Plus and Pandora are dazzling the masses while it's also being found useful as a custom remote control for home automation and other uses around the house.  There haven't been an enormous amount of speaker systems that come with iPad specific docking moldings, but that trend will likely change as the iPad continues to dominant the tablet market.  One such device that arrive early in the product life cycle of the iPad is the Altec Lansing Octiv Stage 450, a compact speaker system with the ability to mount the iPad on a large docking stand.  Design:The device is very simple in design.  The base of the unit measures only ...

Thiel CS3.7 Floorstanding Loudspeaker Review
The Thiel CS3.7, when introduced in 2007, was the crowning achievement by the late, great, Jim Thiel. The flagship floor stander was the culmination of many years of research, and a series of upgrades and refinements of previous models. It has been universally praised by those who have heard it a hifi trade shows, and by professional reviewers alike. Some of the best ears in the business have claimed the CS3.7 offered remarkable performance that only fell short when compared to the very, very best, and stratospherically priced loudspeakers. The Thiel CS3.7 is currently priced at just about $13,000, depending on finish. which dear readers, is less than a pair of Nordost, MIT, Synergistic Research, or Transparent flagship interconnects.   The CS3.7 were designed and built at their facility in Lexington, KY. As every review of a Thiel speaker is obligated ...
