Acoustic Research HC6 Home Theater System
Introduction Life is full of compromises. There is always a situation when you wished that you had paid the extra money, or waited a bit longer for something that would have been more satisfying had you stuck to your guns, instead of bowing to the pressure of other influences. When it comes to consumer electronics, the strongest influence is predictably cash. Another can be what I call "Spousal Acceptance Factor," or "SAF." In my case, statements like "you’re not putting that in my living room" can be common. Aesthetics play a big part. You want to make a physical statement to yourself and those around you with your speakers. Then there is size. Speakers have to fit into your existing environment without detracting from your living space. With all of this in mind, you are ready to start shopping for real loudspeakers. One option that can please a fairly wide range of tastes and ...

Updates To The AudioRevolution.com Best Of Format In 2001 we decided to list all of the best current products in a specific category which we are continuing for 2001. This year you’ll note we have more liberally added in accessory and auxiliary products that AudioRevolution.com reviewers use in their reference systems. For example: because of space and editorial limitations we are unlikely to do a full feature review on a product like the Terk TV55 antenna but we did mention it significantly in the Sony HD100 review. In this year’s Best of, the Terk is eligible for an award.

Adcom GFA-5802 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction The GFA-5802 is Adcom’s most powerful amplifier at 300 watts per channel and, at $1,750, is also their most expensive. This 48-pound giant is cosmetically similar, with Its black matte finish and horizontal grooves, to other Adcom amplifiers of late. The distinguishing aesthetic mark on the GFA-5802, which is shared by other high-end Adcom products, is the small gold plate centered on the lower front of the amplifier. This plate has a toggle switch for the power, flanked by LEDs to indicate thermal overload or high distortion levels. The amplifier’s finish, while utilitarian, is well done, with no obvious tool marks. The finish features a baked-on matte black enamel, which should hold up well. Both sides of the amplifier feature large heatsinks, which eliminate the need for a cooling fan. The rear panel features balanced and single-ended inputs, as well as a switch to choose between the two. There are two sets of five-way ...

Mark Cuban may be the only person you and I can think of who not only made billions of dollars in the dotcom boom but actually kept it. Upon selling Broadcast.com to Yahoo, he bucked up for the Dallas Mavericks NBA franchise, immediately adding an enthusiasm and an air of success that Cuban is famous for in all of his ventures. Now that Cuban has the Mavericks making the playoffs, he is back to his entrepreneurial ways with a new sports-driven HDTV network on DirecTV called HDNet (channel 199). HDNet broadcasts high-quality, native HDTV programming, including live NHL and regular season baseball games, along with upcoming Olympic coverage, extreme sports and much more. With Cuban’s touch for turning new technology into gold, AudioRevolution.com wants to see what he sees for HDTV. Here is what he has to say…

Adcom GTP-830 AV Preamplifier/Processor
Introduction The GTP-830 ($1,200) is the latest home theater processor from Adcom, and their first to offer 7.1 processing. The GTP-830 surprisingly features a RDS (Radio Data Systems) AM/FM tuner in addition to its preamplifier and processor section. The preamplifier-processor section of the unit has five video inputs (three with S-video), a CD input and a tape loop. There are also three digital inputs, one toslink and two coaxial, which are linked to the first three video inputs. Lastly, there is also a 5.1 input for multi-channel SACD or DVD-Audio. The Adcom comes with a variant of the Theatermaster learning remote and also features a 12v trigger to aid in integrating with the rest of your theater system. The Adcom is a full-featured processor with both Dolby Digital and DTS capabilities. 24-bit 96kHz digital to analog converters are used throughout as well as true 24-bit signal processing for sources at that level of resolution. The 5.1 input ...
