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 ( ) 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 ...

Denon DHT-FS3 Sound Bar
The Basics:The Denon DHT-FS3 Soundbar is a slim surround sound system designed to trim down pesky wires and provide a user-friendly experience.  The sound bar is most successfully place directly underneath the television screen for the most effective audio distribution.  The rear panel of the sound bar offers connections for coaxial, optical, A/V and iPod connections.  The DHT-FS3 sound bar contains six speakers that implement Denon’s “X-Space Surround” technology to create a simulated surround sound experience.  The surround algorithms are essentially sound waves directed to specific sections of the room.  TV viewers will get the best performance in the center of the room, but the sound waves do cover a wide range through the empty space.  The 15” by 14.2” subwoofer is surprisingly slim at 4 inches thick.  Due to the smaller size, the output wattage is 40 watts with ...

PSB Synchrony Home Theater Loudspeaker System
Introduction With modest beginnings commencing in 1972, loudspeaker manufacturer PSB has become one of the most recognizable icons in today's audio industry.  Receiving endless accolades from industry peers, as well as delighted consumers, the Canadian-based company is well known for providing products with exceptional performance, which are value-engineered to compete with products often costing substantially more. Now that PSB is part of The Lenbrook Group, original owner Paul Barton operates as chief designer and continues to be one of the most impassioned patriarchs in the audio industry today.  Barton has been highly influential in developing many of the design protocols and scientific guidelines used in many of today's high-performance loudspeakers.  Throughout his career, he has extensively utilized Canada's National Research Council (NRC), a government-managed scientific and engineering research institution, taking full advantage of their expansive resources and state-of-the-art testing facilities.  PSB's ...

ZVOX 425 Single-Cabinet Surround Speaker System
Introduction Sometimes in life, less is more. It seems the older I get, the more often I find myself muttering this popular cliché. All too often, the electronics industry does not share my affection for this philosophy, thus leaving me pulling my hair out over AV system complexities that I never dreamed possible or realized were in any way necessary. If you pay any attention to consumer electronics, as does any reader of, you know that there is a never-ending stream of new products always trumping the previous version with new features and complexities. Just when you think all sanity has been lost, along comes a company like ZVOX Audio. They are the proverbial breath of fresh air that this industry sometimes lacks.  The company was created by people from some of the best-known brands in the audio arena, such ...
