AudioControl Concert AVR-1 Home Theater AV Receiver Review
I like movies but dislike the movie theater experience. I'll never understand the connection between attending the cinema and stuffing one's face with as much popcorn, candy and soda as possible in a 2-hour swipe. Inevitably, I'm surrounded by groups of folks more intent on demonstrating how loudly they can masticate than actually watching the film. Thus, I've acquired a reputation as something of a movie theater Scrooge and would rather do the whole movie thing at home. My critics counter, “But you can't get the same big-screen experience at home. And what about the special effects and the sound?” Granted, I can't drop a 30- or 40-foot screen into my living room without calling my insurance agent; however, you want movie theater special effects and sound? Really great sound? That's where AudioControl's Concert AVR-1 comes in to save the ...

avielo radiance DLP Projector Preview
Norway's projectiondesign seeks to provide unparalleled image quality and user experiences its aveilo radiance DLP projector.  With a full HD 1920 x 1080p native resolution, the single chip (0.95"), single lamp aveilo radiance is based on the same chases as the avielo spectra, but features 10-bit video processing and a higher output for larger screens "at a relatively low cost."The avielo radiance speaks fluent PAL, SECAM, and NTSC digital and analogue RGB, accepting all 1080i/p, 720p, 576i/p, and 480i/p signals which will then be projected at 1080p.  Projector offset stats are impressive on the vertical side (a vertical offset of 124%), but there is no horizontal offset.  Contrast ratio is a decent >5000:1 (native optical contrast).  The single 300-watt UHP lamp is good for a brightness of 1200 ANSI lumens (adjustable), which means with an 87 inch screen, you're throwing ...

avielo optix 3D DLP Projector Preview
Love it or hate it, 3D was inescapable at CEDIA Expo 2010, and alongside their premium and high end projector competitors, Norwary's projectiondesign has announced the avielo optix 3D projector.  “With more and more 3D feature films now playing at every movie theater, it is only natural that consumers are getting excited about having 3D in their homes, too,” said Anders Løkke, projectiondesign's International Marketing & Communications Manager. “The avielo optix 3D DLP® projector from avielo by projectiondesign is our solution to this customer need – allowing convincing 3D images to be created in a home-theater environment, without compromising image quality, brightness, contrast, or consistency of color rendition.”Based on the RESI award-winning dual lamp, single chip DLP avielo optix projector, this 3D model not only includes the SpectraCal Cal MAN calibration software and projectiondesign's BrilliantColor (aka RealColor) technology for ...

avielo optix SuperWide 235 DLP Projector Preview
Ever wanted to see a constant height projection system without the need a brightness-reducing adapter kit and auxiliary lens?  Norway's projectiondesign avielo optix SuperWide 235 single chip DLP projector might just be for you.  It is the world's first projector to display 2.35:1 content natively at a 1080p vertical resolution (2538 x 1080p to be precise).  And since this is an avielo series projector, we can also assume these projectors will include a dual lamp system, SpectraCal Cal MAN calibration software, and projectiondesign's BrilliantColor (or RealColor) technology for improved illumination efficiency and a wide color gamut.Before the avielo optix SuperWide 235, the only way to watch a 2.35:1 aspect ratio film was the combination of an adapter lens and a video scaler, a process which, according to project design, can reduce measured picture brightness by up to 10% even with ...

Apple TV Review (2010)
While Apple dominated in the mobile market and is thriving with their line of laptops, they have never been able to grasp the home theater crowd with their video solutions, namely the first two revisions of the Apple TV (reviews here and here). Over three years from the release of the original Apple TV, Apple announced a new version of the Apple TV in combination with revisions of the iPod Touch and iPod Nano lines.  This smaller, sleeker version of the Apple TV was priced considerably less than the MSRP of the original unit and the technology has changed dramatically.  Along with the announcement of the Apple TV, Steve Jobs and company are taking a hard stance on standard pricing for content, very similar to their pricing decisions with music over iTunes.  Television HD content is priced at 99 cents ...
