Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1 Monitor Loudspeakers
Small, two way monitors have traditionally been revered by those who sought precise stereo imaging in smaller rooms, and by those whose listening tastes leaned towards a smaller scale. There was the usual trade off; the lack of any real bass weight and compression at much higher volumes.  Those who worshipped at the alter of classic BBC monitor sound were content with the warm, velvety midrange, at the expense of much musical information in the frequency extremes.Much has changed recently as many speaker designers have overcome the usual shortcomings of mini monitors. Advances in cabinet construction, drivers, and electronics have provided a canvas for some companies to produce smallish two ways that offer the usual strengths, while greatly, if not in some cases, eliminating the weaknesses.There are a few speaker models available that can play plenty loud without strain, offer ...

ZVOX Z-Base 550 Speaker System
The home theater craze has ushered in the development of associated products nearly unimaginable 30 years ago. For those of us who grew up on two-channel stereo and terrible TV sound, the advent of video formats such as Betamax and VHS were our introduction to home theater. Those days now seem like ancient history, and even the most devout advocate of vintage gear would admit that the DVD format is superior in every way to the old tape cartridges. And without the DVD, our home “movie theater experiences” would be pretty dull. My first home theater set-up was pretty typical of the time. It was 2005, and I opted for a surround  system, with a 5.1 receiver and four (two front, two rear) floor-standing speakers and a subwoofer. I remember running wires under living room carpet and trying to keep ...

GenevaSound L Stereo System
Compromise. That's one of the dirty words in the world of high-fi. Nobody talks much about it, but nearly all audio products, regardless of cost, have some compromise built in. The best bookshelf speaker can never reproduce bass to the nth degree of a full-range floor-stander, and a great turntable will be only as good as its tonearm and cartridge. Thus, it seems almost folly to design a stereo system – an all-one-system to boot – and expect good results. But that hasn't stopped the folks at Geneva Sound Systems (www.genevalab.com ) from taking on such challenges. The company has embraced a simplicity-over-gadgets philosophy, giving consumers high-powered all-one-one audio systems designed for CD, iPod and FM radio playback, at an attractive price. The GenevaSound Systems comes in three sizes/models: M (medium), L (large) and XL (extra large). The M and ...

Canton GLE 409
In 1972, the German speaker company known as Canton was first formed. From the outset, the engineers at Canton have been designing high-end speaker system that can replicate a ‘live’ performance from the London Philharmonic just as easily as it can reproduce the bombs and explosions emanating from an action-packed Blu-Ray DVD’s soundtrack for a truly electrifying home theater experience. The rest of the home audio industry took note of what Canton was doing, and in 1995 Canton was awarded the “European Audio Award” for best audio innovation when Canton manufactured their first digital speaker line earlier in that same year. Audio engineers the world over recognized that these new digital speakers would create true musical reproduction in home audio that most engineers could only dream about just a year before. And Canton would not stop there. Just three years ...

Canton Ergo 609 DC
Germany is world-renowned for their contribution to the world when it comes to immaculate automobile design (BMW & Porsche), but Germany also contains an exceptional audio manufacturer that consistently hits the top ten with most audio critics when it comes to designing floor standing speakers, center channel speakers and their Digital Movie Series of loudspeakers which are specifically designed for home theater use. Even before the company was founded in 1972, the main four men who created Canton were working in the field of audio design for many years and each founding member was a huge enthusiast when it came to audio. The Canton name roughly translates to mean “To sing music” in English, so you can see how much passion for the musical element of audio design these founders were bringing to the world even in the nascent beginnings ...
