Anthony Gallo Acoustics Nucleus Micro 5.1 Speaker System
Introduction There is no question that flat and wall-mounted HDTVs are driving the home theater market in 2005. Today, a consumer can invest in an under-$2,000 HDTV plasma or fairly large yet thin HDTV and get one hell of a picture. The problem is that the speakers historically best known for recreating the best music and movie soundtracks are not necessarily the best fit in rooms increasingly designed to make your system “out of the way.” Leading the way in the Bose-killer category is Anthony Gallo Acoustics. Their vast array of unique, round and colorful speakers literally fit in places where traditional speakers don’t with a sound that lures in even the most jaded audiophiles, thanks to some very creative engineering, choice of materials and implementation. The Anthony Gallo Nucleus Micro speaker system reviewed here is a 5.1 surround sound system for movies and music, comprised of five identical four-inch spheres to use for ...

Adcom GFA-7805 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Adcom has carved an undeniable niche in this industry by manufacturing rock solid high-end electronics at budget prices. In fact, many music enthusiasts with mega-dollar systems fondly recall Adcom as one of their first high-performance audio investments back in the late 1980s. Decades later, Adcom is still providing consumers with quality components at a fraction of the price of many of its higher-end peers. The GFA-7805 is a 300-watt, five-channel amplifier designed to drive your 5.1 home theater or multi-channel music system, retailing for $2,599. As model numbers go, the GFA-7805 amp from Adcom is one of the easiest to remember. As if it were conceived in bar by a couple of dudes who each had a beer in one hand and darts in the other, GFA simply stands for “Great F’ing Amp.” There’s a model number that will set it apart for an otherwise conservative industry. The GFA-7805 tips the scales at 88 pounds ...

Anthem AVM 30 AV Preamplifier
Introduction For decades, manufacturers have produced high-end stereo components that deliver music playback so real that you can practically reach out and touch your favorite musician. Although home theatres with multi-channel surround systems have been commonplace since the early 1990s, there have been few options for the ultimate level in multi-channel reproduction. Such systems came at a price that invoked shrieks from even the wealthiest consumers. Many are familiar with the likes of the Mark Levinson No. 40, priced at over $30,000 and the Meridian G68 and Reference 861, at $8,000 and $20,000 respectively, just to mention a few. In the growing group of sub-$5,000 processors, can the Anthem AVM30 bring on the highest level of performance at a fraction of the cost of these mega-processors? One glance at the feature list and the $3,000 price tag tells me the Anthem AVM30 preamp/processor/tuner may well be the brightest contender on the price and performance landscape. This ...

Anthem Statement P5 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Following in the footsteps of the Anthem D1 Preamplifier Processor Tuner that I recently reviewed, Anthem also augmented the Statement line of electronic components with two series of amplifiers, the lower-powered A2 and A5, and the top-of-the-line P2 and P5. Once again, the design goal for each of these units is to offer the ultimate in performance, with Anthem inviting comparisons to any and all comers, regardless of price. This past summer, I received a huge carton on my doorstep containing the five-channel Anthem Statement P5 multi-channel power amplifier ($4,999), which I immediately inserted into my reference home theater system. Description Physically, the Anthem P5 is a behemoth, weighing 130 pounds and measuring nine-and-three-eighths inches high by 19.25 inches wide by 22.5 inches deep. The overall appearance is less imposing than one might expect because of the elegant black fine-grain aluminum cover, gentle curves on the front panel, and extruded aluminum side handles. There are no fuses ...

Axiom M80ti Loudspeakers
Introduction Axiom Audio has quickly established itself as one of a small number of players in the ultra-competitive Internet-based, direct-to-the-consumer speaker business. With an understated Canadian style, the Axiom folks bend over backwards to offer AV advice in place of crafty closes and hard sells. Consumers who find their value-oriented speakers without researching Axiom’s reputation are often shocked at how low-key and fun the experience of buying speakers can be. As you might expect, the Axiom website is extremely well designed and rich in content for those looking to learn about speakers, audio and home theater systems in general. Unlike many mass market and mid-level retailers, Axiom has truly informed advisors awaiting your call. The most notable of these is resident audio-video expert Alan Lofft (former editor of a number of top AV publications), who is available to prospective and existing Axiom clients for help with everything from tuning a subwoofer to speaker placement and far beyond. ...
