Theta Casablanca AV Preamplifier
Introduction Your next preamp, digital-to-analog converter and surround processor are most likely going to be housed in one chassis thanks to the trend set by the Theta Casablanca. For ten years, Theta Digital has been setting high end performance standards by designing digital processors and transports capable of the highest level of performance. The Theta Casablanca is a high end audio-video preamp which can execute all of the most cutting edge music and film playback formats of 1998 while maintaining an open architecture for growth into future technologies. The Theta Casablanca is a PC-inspired high end audio-video preamp. Physically, the Casablanca is quite tall; and you'll need all eight inches of height to accommodate all the cards you'll want to elicit the best from your 5.1 surround formats and future upgrades. Available in either silver or black anodized aluminum, no one will miss the that fact you've invested in a dramatic new addition to your ...

Lexicon DC-1 AV Preamplifier/Processor
Introduction The DC-1 is the flagship digital controller from Lexicon, a long time leader in digital processing technology. It is a combination preamplifier, A/V switcher, D-to-A converter (24-bit Delta Sigma) and digital processor whose design makes it possible to come in a variety of configurations. A fully loaded DC-1 incorporates Dolby Digital, DTS and THX processes. The DC-1 continues to provide Pro Logic along with other surround processes for videotapes, TV programming and other source materials without DTS or Dolby Digital encoding. Several DSP (digital signal processing) modes are provided for adding ambience to stereo and monaural sources. All signal processing, including filters, EQ and crossovers, are performed in the digital domain. The DC-1 also employs Lexicon's patented Logic 7 technology, which takes as low as a two-channel signal and digitally processes it to produce a discreet, multi-channel, full bandwidth surround signal. Logic 7 is included on many of the DC-1's surround parameters and can be enjoyed by listeners ...

Millennium DTS Decoder/AV Preamplifier
Introduction The Millennium DTS Decoder/Preamp is a simple black box, offering an upgrade path for most multi-channel sound systems. Using the Millennium's multi-channel preamp inputs and outputs, you send the signal from your current A/V preamp through the Millennium for decoding and back again. The Millennium offers two digital inputs, coax and optical (Toslink). A digital output is also provided, which I used to feed a Theta 396 D-to-A converter (DAC). In the event you don't have a full five speaker plus subwoofer system, there are dip switches for down converting the DTS bitstream into a configuration that matches your system, be it 5.1, 4, or 2 channel. A set-up CD, with white noise for calibrating each channel, is included in the packaging. While there is nothing difficult about the set-up, the manual-only controls mean you have to continually get up from your listening position to adjust the levels until they are right. Additionally, the Millennium ...
