Orb Audio Mod4 Speaker System
Introduction The Mod4 speaker system from Orb Audio is the Internet-based company’s attempt at a no-holds-barred home theater loudspeaker solution pointed directly at today’s design-conscious consumer. The system is rather compact and retails for a manageable $1,999 for a complete 5.1 system and comes straight from the factory to you via Orb’s website, as well as offering a 30-day money-back guarantee. For years, Orb Audio has been famed the world over for their stylish designs and quality sound at affordable prices, all made right here in the good ol’ U. S. of A., and their latest concoction, the Mod4 system reviewed here, is consistent with that tradition. The Mod4 speaker system was delivered to my office personally by Orb Audio president Garry Pelled. I was able to chat with Garry about the Mod4 system for a bit, as well as Orb’s manufacturing ...

Definitive Technology Mythos ST Super Towers/Mythos Ten Speaker System
Introduction Speaker technology is growing and designs are constantly evolving to adapt to the changes in display technology and lifestyle. Definitive Technology has been breaking the price point of full-range sound for decades, and now comes to the table with the new Mythos ST Super Tower, a speaker promising to exceed all of our expectations. A tall, slender speaker designed to fit into any décor yet offer sound beyond reproach, the Mythos ST has a built-in powered subwoofer, eliminating the need for a separate one in a home theater system. They are available in a brushed aluminum or gloss black finish and cost just $1,999 each. For my review system, Definitive was kind enough to send me four of the new Mythos STs and one of the new Mythos Ten speakers, designed as an L/C/R. The Mythos Ten retails for $899, ...

Revel Ultima2 Speaker System (Salon2/Gem2/Voice2)
Introduction Over the last decade, Revel has established itself as one of the leading researchers of psychoacoustic science and innovators of high-performance loudspeakers. Positioned within the Harman Specialty Group, a subsidiary of the massive Harman International organization, Revel was conceived as the crown jewel of Harman's high-end consumer loudspeaker companies. By pooling resources from Harman, Revel has had the luxury of utilizing some of the world's most technically advanced engineering teams and sophisticated testing facilities to accomplish their objectives. The original Ultima loudspeaker system has been praised by the press and public alike for its faithful sound reproduction and cutting edge technology. Revel has upped the ante by recently releasing the new replacement for the original series, aptly named Ultima2. Having used the original Salons, Voices and S30s as my reference multi-channel system for several years, I was eager to experience ...

Paradigm Monitor 9 v.5 Loudspeakers
Introduction Earlier this year Paradigm released an update, version five or v.5, of one of their most successful and longest-lasting speaker lines, the Monitor Series. Paradigm is famous for following the simple business proposition of building a good product for less than the other guy. What I’ve always appreciated about Paradigm is that they don’t skimp on the details, no matter how low the retail price. The sound quality is there, but so are the build quality, finish and nice little touches like their new magnetized grilles. Value here doesn’t mean you’re getting something cheap, it means you’re getting something truly valuable, for less than you might expect to pay. The subject of this review and my new object of affection, the Monitor 9 floor-standing speaker, retails for $949 per pair and is about all the speaker one could hope for, ...

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin
Introduction As the rock and roll legend goes, Jimmy Page was drinking with Keith Moon and John Entwisle, complaining about their fellow The Who bandmates Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. A few drinks later, in the midst of a booze-drenched, brainstorming session, one of the group members suggested that Moon and Entwisle should start a band with Page, to which one of them said, “That would go over like a lead balloon” – a concept that Page never forgot. After leaving The Yardbirds, and starting a new band, the concept of a “lead zeppelin” was too tempting to avoid, especially considering the heavy nature of the blues-driven, early heavy metal sound juxtaposed with the band’s nimble syncopation and musical agility. With the “a” dropped from the name (reportedly because Americans wouldn’t be able to pronounce the name correctly) Led Zeppelin was ...
