Atlantic Technology IWCB-52 In-wall Speakers
Introduction As of late, I’ve become increasingly interested in in-wall speakers, not only for their practicality, but also because they have become exceedingly good in providing truly reference grade sound in a sleek unobtrusive package. Nothing is sexier than having a guest walk into your listening room and be blown away at your system’s sound, only to ask, “Where are the speakers?” Because of these facts, my reference room features a complete in-wall speaker system from Meridian entirely hidden from view by a custom fabric wall as seen in the August edition of AVRev.com. However, not everyone has the budget or the means to welcome a speaker system such as the Meridian into the home. Hence my interest in the Atlantic Technology IWCB-52 in-wall speakers reviewed here. Why did I choose Atlantic Technology’s IWCB-52s for this review (and for my home) over the many other reputable and wonderful-sounding brands out there today? Simple. The IWCB-52s sound ...

It might be easier to pick a top-performing fantasy football running back than it is to choose the right HDTV to watch him on every Sunday. At AVRev.com, we have made it easy for you this year with an HDTV cheat sheet that gives you the inside track on the best, brightest and most resolute HDTVs on the market for this football season. Note: prices are subject to change, based on market conditions. HP SL4278N 42-Inch MediaSmart LCD HDTV Last year, HP introduced the MediaSmart LCD TV, with a built-in digital media receiver to which you can stream music, photos, and even HD video from your computer, over a wired or wireless network. The media function was a nice perk in an otherwise good-performing HDTV. The second-gen MediaSmart TVs have just arrived, and the specs look promising. The SL4278N ups the TV ...

Aperion Audio Intimus 633-T Loudspeakers
Introduction As much as I love high-end gear and the brands associated with it, I have a special place in my heart for the little guys. While you can hardly call a brand such as Aperion “little,” they don’t quite have the brand equity of, say, Paradigm, Definitive Technology or B&W. Still, Aperion has made a name for itself over the years by producing well-regarded and very good-sounding speakers at surprisingly affordable prices, which they sell direct to the consumer, with a 30-day money-back trial period, via their website. While Web-based consumer electronic sales are nothing new, Aperion’s website stands apart from some of the competition, in that it doesn’t appear to be homegrown. Aperion’s website, www.aperionaudio.com is nicely designed, extremely informative and has a stylistic flair to it equal to some of the biggest names in the business. But don’t think all this design flash is meant to distract you from a substandard product. ...

Audyssey Sound Equalizer
Introduction More than speakers, equipment, cables and even source material, your room is the single most important component in your audio/video system. While this comes as no surprise to many enthusiasts, be it two-channel or home theater, the room and its interactions (good or bad) with the sound is often overlooked, or worse, ignored. The science of sound can be a bit daunting and not quite as fun or interesting as reading about the latest Blu-ray player or high-dollar power amplifier, yet in many ways, it is vastly more important. I’ve heard million-dollar systems sound less than impressive, while some of my most memorable aural experiences can be traced back to a pair of $300 a pair mini-monitors powered by a simple stereo receiver. How could this be? The room acoustics and tuning have a lot to do with a successful system. Your room is so important that many companies offer services, ranging from acoustical ...

Apple TV
Introduction Home theater PCs are not so much a fad as they are the future. The sheer capability and versatility one gets from integrating a home theater PC into a home theater and/or whole-home AV network is staggering. Think about it. Consumers now have a single component that can catalogue and store all of their music, movies, television programs and even play the latest high-definition formats, such as Blu-ray and HD DVD, in a chassis not much larger than your standard DVD player. Throw in the fact that you can essentially make any computer, even the one you currently own, a home theater PC and you begin to see the prospect’s superb value and outrageous potential. For me, the biggest downside to home theater PCs is the PC part. Most home theater PCs are based around a Windows operating system that ultimately makes them somewhat user-friendly to the scores of PC users out there, ...
