Aiwa DX-DW1 Portable DVD Player
Introduction The Aiwa DX-DW1 is a portable DVD/CD player that measures six-and-one-half inches wide by seven-and-one-eighth inches deep by two-and-one-eighth inches high. This baby bear of a DVD player lists at $1,000.00. $1,000 you might say … come on! The $200.00 DVD price barrier was broken months ago. I know – I know, that's a lot of porridge. Read on. Our story begins with the features of the DX-DW1. First, the unit contains a five-and-four-fifths inch active matrix color TFT (thin film transistor) display that can adjust 180° from the closed position. Located below the screen are the manual set-up, brightness, color and mode controls buttons. The first three of these controls are self-explanatory. The mode control allows you to switch between screen aspect ratios: full screen, which displays 16 x 9 or widescreen; normal, which leaves left and right black borders; zoom, which enlarges the picture from the center point of the display to ...

Athena Technologies S3 Satellite / P3 Subwoofer / P1 Subwoofer / C1 Center
Athena Technologies S3/P3, P1/C1 Athena Technologies is a new line of speakers from API, the company that brings you the Mirage and Energy speakers. Athena’s pedigree is very solid and the Athena line fits in nicely between Energy and Mirage. The speaker combination I reviewed consisted of the top-of-the-line subwoofer/satellite combination for the four corners, with the smallest subwoofer paired up with their center channel. The retail price for the system I selected was a very reasonable $4,125 (C1 $250 each, P1 $275 each, S3 $600 per pair, P3 $600 each). Several finishes are available. The cherry wood review samples were well finished and aesthetically pleasing. The S3 is a three-way satellite with a 1" tweeter, 5 _" midrange and 8" woofer. The P3 subwoofer is a 150-watt amplifier driving a 10" driver in a ported enclosure. The Athena lineup consists of three subwoofer options, the P1, P2 and P3, three satellite options, S1, S2 ...

Atlantic Technology System 370 THX Speaker System
Introduction Trying to find the right home theater speaker system can be an anxiety-ridden process, but listening even once to the warm, dynamic and articulate performance of the Atlantic Technology System 370 may be the audio Prozac that will relieve your blues. The 371LR and 373C are sealed box designs consisting of two 6 inch coated composite graphite woofers, two 3-inch composite graphite midrange drivers and a 1-inch silk-dome tweeter arranged in a D'appolito configuration. The rear surrounds, deemed "TwinPolar," have their two 5-1/4-inch composite graphite woofers and two inch silk dome tweeters mounted on two sides of a triangular cabinet. Both speakers have frequency responses of 80Hz-20kHz. The 372PBM subwoofer is powered by a 275-watt amp that can drive the 15-inch-high excursion cone to a peak SPL of 108dB with a frequency response of 25Hz-500Hz. The System 370 retails for $4,300 without the optional floor pedestals. Performance One of the biggest challenges faced by a manufacturer is to ...

Anthem MCA 5 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction The MCA5 is the first five-channel amplifier from Anthem. It is part of their new MCA series and retails for $1,399. Unlike the majority of products in the Sonic Frontiers and Anthem lines, the MCA series is solid state. The MCA series of multi-channel amplifiers offers 200 watts per channel in two-, three- and five-channel configurations. The description below applies to all three amplifiers in the series unless otherwise noted. The back panel contains single-ended and balanced inputs for each channel, an iec standard power cord socket and a DC relay trigger socket and switch to control the auto-on circuitry. This switch lets you choose from three different modes, manual on, trigger and auto on. In the auto on mode, the amplifier switches itself on after sensing an input signal. The sleek and deep chassis is well finished and is a bit unusual as you can see through the top and out the bottom ...
