Autonomic Controls MMS-2 Music Server Review
Things are moving fast; very fast. The proliferation of hard disc based music playback systems that began a few years ago has continued at even a brisker pace then anyone could have been imagined. And with each new generation in this product category, new, and sometimes mind blowing features are added, as well as improved sound quality and improved interfaces. Now with designers across the board allowing for devices to be controlled via Apple iPads and iPhone/iPod Touch units, and some even providing for remote off site access, we are entering a new dimension.  Specifically, we are entering “the cloud”, a place where we wandering humans can access our media files anywhere in the world with handheld devices, tablets, computers, or any WiFi enabled gadget.  It seems this was a logical progression from multi room systems, which have been around ...

Arcam rDAC Review
Arcam has been one of Britain’s leading high end audio companies since the mid 70’s. They became known for great sound and super reliable amplifiers but soon branched out to make components for every application. They also became known as cutting edge designers of digital gear, with their CD, and later DVD players consistently being rated at the top of their product categories. Arcam AV receivers are considered state of the art, and one has long been on my shopping list. The one product category that Arcam has not been involved with for some time is Digital Audio Converters. Now that has changed with the introduction of the rDAC. If timing is everything, then Arcam has nailed it, as there could not have been a better time to introduce a $479, three input, well built and attractive converter. With the ...

Altec Lansing Octiv Duo Review
You just can’t get away from the iPod.  It dominates the mobile audio space and everyone seems to have one these days either in iPhone form or the standard iPod Touch.  While Apple’s perfected the personal experience of music with their portable line of iPods, they have left the sharing of music up to 3rd part manufactures.  The iPods’s internal speakers certainly don’t cut it, so companies like Altec Lansing have developed solutions for music lovers that want to share what they are listening to with family and friends.  But what do you do with multiple devices iPods or iPhones in the mix?  Fighting over the stereo system can be avoided with a dual dock device, such as the Octiv Duo (MSRP $99.99).  Altec Lansing takes that concept a step further by introducing a way to mix the tracks between ...

Ambiance Acoustics Super Cubes Review
Every speaker design represents a mix of advantages and compromises. Achieving good reproduction across the frequency range from low to high often involves employing drivers of different sizes linked with a crossover network. The large majority of loudspeakers feature such designs. Yet, it's possible for a speaker to approach full-range response without a dedicated woofer and tweeter (or other arrangement) connected by a crossover network. Instead, several drivers of the same size can be employed by using an equalizer to shape response and boost the bottom end. The most famous such design is the Bose 901. This speaker, first introduced in 1968, relied on nine 4.5-inch cone drivers for an “omnidirectional” sound to simulate the sound of a live performance. The 901 cabinet featured an angled back containing eight of the nine drivers, while the front panel housed a single ...

Altec Lansing Octiv Stage 450 Review
The influence of Apple's iDevices in today's marketplace gets stronger with every passing day and the iPad is certainly taking the home theater market by storm.  Popular applications like Netflix, hulu Plus and Pandora are dazzling the masses while it's also being found useful as a custom remote control for home automation and other uses around the house.  There haven't been an enormous amount of speaker systems that come with iPad specific docking moldings, but that trend will likely change as the iPad continues to dominant the tablet market.  One such device that arrive early in the product life cycle of the iPad is the Altec Lansing Octiv Stage 450, a compact speaker system with the ability to mount the iPad on a large docking stand.  Design:The device is very simple in design.  The base of the unit measures only ...
