RBH MC Series Home Theater Speaker System
Introduction In the heyday of hi-fi, it seemed like there was a wide gap between the highest-end speakers and speakers the masses could afford. Today, things are different in that the budget-minded audio-video performance enthusiast now has the opportunity to buy speakers that can hang with the high-end players at a price that is only fractionally more than the speakers found advertised on TV infomercials, along with noise-canceling headphones. For over 25 years, RBH has been producing a wide range of performance loudspeakers that are designed and engineered from their Utah-based facility. I first became aware of their work four years ago, when AVR editor Bryan Southard invited me over to his home to get a second opinion on the Signature series that he had installed for review. I remember really admiring the fit, finish and workmanship. I was impressed with the solidness of the enclosures and the smooth, refined sound that they produced. One of the ...

Triad In-Room Silver System
Introduction Triad Speakers have been around for more than 24 years, yet many consumers are just starting to hear about the brand as they are primarily marketed to the custom installation market. Triad speakers are quite unique. Unlike almost all other major speaker manufacturers, Triad produces custom installed speakers that are indeed truly custom. Need a narrow center speaker? They can make it for you. Need bi-pole rear speakers painted in sea foam green to match the Dunn Edwards paint being used in the room? They can do it. Refreshingly, nearly every speaker they produce is made to order within 72 hours of when the order is placed. Here's the basic idea behind Triad's lines of speakers. The designs are application driven, with as many as four configurations of each model, for specific installation applications without compromise. Versions typically consist of an InRoom and at least one InWall version, with some having OnWall and InCeiling versions ...

PSB Platinum Ovation Theater System Plus
Introduction PSB, established in 1971 by founder and chief designer Paul Barton, has earned a reputation for manufacturing loudspeakers that offer outstanding performance while incorporating effective cost engineering as a design priority. Thorough in execution, slow in change, their Stratus Gold (and subsequent “Gold-i” improved version) stood as PSB’s reference loudspeaker for an unprecedented time, garnishing praise and accolades from both consumers and press alike. But like all technologies, new advancements in the industry inspired Mr. Barton to put his decades of experience to work. The goal was to start from scratch, creating a statement loudspeaker line for the new millennium, designated as the Platinum Series. PSB employed comprehensive computer design and sophisticated measurement techniques during the blueprinting of the Platinum loudspeakers, including laser vibrometry and Finite Element Analysis for driver and cabinet design. With extensive use of the world-renowned Canadian National Research Council facilities, PSB conducted extensive loudspeaker measurements and double-blind listening tests to achieve their uncompromising ...

Klegg M6 501 Home Theater System
Introduction The demand for affordable audio/video systems is on the climb as more and more consumers find that their HDTV-video needs have used up much of their overall home theater budgets. Retailers are scrambling to find slick, thin solutions that work with today’s best, flattest TVs. Klegg Audio is a relatively new, UK-based manufacturer of small surround speaker packages designed to compete in the highly competitive “home theater in a box” (HTIB for short) market. Klegg as a new brand is making impressive inroads in a world where every consumer knows every brand. They have packaged attractive one-stop solutions complete with speakers and surround controllers and, most recently, plasma displays that also wear the Klegg logo. Klegg’s M6 501 Home Theater System features five beautifully tiny speakers, a subwoofer, amplification and a surround sound processor for a very modest price of $999. This market segment features the likes of Bose, Gallo Acoustics and most of the ...

Energy Connoisseur Speaker System
Introduction and Set-up For those of you who love the look and open sound of a pair of attractive, high-performance floor-standing speakers flanking your video display, the Energy Connoisseur line has several new options for you to choose from. This review system consists of a pair of $750 C-5 floor-standing speakers, a $400 C-C1 Center Channel, a pair of $400 C-R1 Rear Channels and the small but powerful $500 S8.2 Subwoofer. Only the Veritas series offers higher performance than the Connoisseurs in the Energy lineup of speakers. I don’t have a very large living room, so when the boxes arrived at the Audio Video Revolution offices, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I could fit the entire system into my compact car. I love monster speakers that can rock an amphitheater as much as the next guy, but I could tell that these reasonably-sized Energy speakers were going to be a good fit to my ...
