Camelot Roundtable DVD Player
Introduction The Camelot Technology Roundtable is a progressive output DVD player designed for the true audio and video enthusiast who appreciates cutting-edge gadgetry and is willing to invest in a high-performance front end for their music and theater system. The $3,999 Roundtable is a progressive scan DVD player packed with all of Camelot Technology's best tricks, including an internal digital line doubler, 24/96 up-conversion, Camelot's Dragon 5.1 jitter reduction for 5.1 AC3, DTS and other digital formats, Camelot's powered S-Video cable technology and more. The concept behind the Camelot Roundtable was to build a DVD player for the enthusiast who has a mid-to-high-end audio system and a video system that includes a TV that can accept progressive inputs. The Camelot is designed around a Panasonic A-110 DVD player with a highly modified, heavy-duty chassis that measures 17 inches wide, 12 inches deep and three-and-a-half inches high. The Roundtable has all sorts of output options, including coax for ...

Conrad Johnson Sonographe SC26 Stereo Preamplifier
Introduction As I received the Sonographe SC26 preamplifier for review, I admittedly looked upon this assignment with great uncertainty, knowing little what to expect. Like many of you, I respect for the creator and parent of the Sonegraphe SC26, Conrad Johnson. Few intimately familiar with fine electronics are unaware of the success and respect that CJ has amassed, with better than 20 years of experience in creating fine electronics. One of Conrad Johnson’s latest, the highly touted ART preamplifier, is considered by many to be the finest preamplifier ever made, priced as such at a crisp $15,000. However, Conrad Johnson has long been known for their tube amplifier and preamplifier products and although they have produced solid-state electronics, they are much better known for tube products such as the Premier Series amps and preamps. Unpacked and ready for hook-up, the Sonographe SC26 looked much like many of the Conrad Johnson pieces with which you may ...

Cinepro 3K6se Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction While many amplifier manufacturers continue to only think about stereo, Cinepro knows the future is multi-channel sound. The six-channel 3K6se amplifier was designed expressly for the demands of 5.1 digital audio sources--such as DVD and Laserdiscs encoded with Dolby Digital and DTS. Digitally encoded movies require amplification that can maintain a wide dynamic range without distortion; and whereas dialogue normally requires an average of 5-10 watts, key action scenes (such as the White House explosion in "Independence Day") peaked close to 750 watts for brief bursts in Cinepro's extensive tests. To accommodate this range of levels, the 3K6se is capable of generating a peak output of 1 kilowatt per channel (4 ohms). The inputs and outputs are divided into three two-channel groups (front LR, center/sub, rear LR). Each group can also be converted from two to one channel (bridged mono). In the multi-channel mode, the 3K6se is rated at 375 watts per channel into 8 ohms ...

Camelot Technology Powered S-Video Cable
Introduction Upgrading the picture quality of your home theater is as simple as tossing aside those coax cables and using the S-Video connections you've may have had all along. As always, you should use the best possible cable for any connection, but Camelot Technology takes it a step further with their Powered S-Video Cable. The S-Video (also known as Y/C Video) connection incorporates the comb filters built into Laserdisc players and transmits the luminance (Y) and chrominance (C) portions of the video signal separately. Luminance, the black and white portion of the video signal, provides the brightness information. Chrominance, the color portion of the video signal, carries information about the hue and saturation. By transmitting Y & C on two separate wires, you avoid the compromised picture common to composite video (NTSC) which mingles (and mangles) the two signals together. The Excalibur Powered S-Video Cable provides one S-Video input (from your video source) and one S-Video ...

California Audio Labs CL-20 DVD/CD Player
Introduction "California, a profit on the burning shore"....... Estimated Profit, Grateful Dead. Like that song of wisdom and spiritual fulfillment coming to fruition, the California Audio Labs CL-20 DVD/CD player is a flier into the promise of what the digital audio and video medium is capable of today and a good measure of what we can expect as the technology matures into the future. Capable of processing 24/96 DVD audio, the CL-20 gave me my first extended exposure to what this new medium is all about......about to turn 44.1kHZ into the likes of a faded childhood nightmare. The CL-20 has HDCD processing, DAC outputs at 96, 48 and 44.1kHz. Other outputs include two Dolby Digital AC-3 5.1, two 24bit/96kHz PCM digital audio, coax and AES/EBU and RS-232 digital interface for future software upgrades. Video outputs are composite and S-video. Well constructed and fairly massive at 20 lbs. the CL-20 cuts a pretty clean profile. The ...
