Cambridge Audio Azur 650R AV Receiver Review
Shopping for a home theater system can be an almost overwhelming proposition. There are AV receivers and surround speaker packages for almost every specific type of home theater application and setting. Consumers can choose from receivers capable of delivering up to 9.2 channels with enough power to shake pictures off the walls. And the sound quality of some A/V receivers is so good that there's little compromise choosing between a receiver and a pre-amp/power amp combo or integrated amplifier. The true art, then, of assembling a high performance home theater system comes with matching receiver to speakers and then to the room. I came to audition Cambridge Audio's Azur 650R AV Receiver and Mordaunt-Short Mezzo Loudspeakers after a request to review Cambridge's 650BD Blu-ray player fell through. The demand for the universal player was distributor, Audio Plus Services' supply, so ...

Cary Audio CD 500 CD Player Review
It's no secret that stand-alone CD players have lost ground with consumers looking for “universal” solutions to home theater and audio needs. Although the digital domain still reigns, portable media players along with DVD and Blu-ray players have taken a lot of wind out of the CD player's sails. Still, a dedicated CD player offers the best potential for high-fidelity performance. If you've invested into compact discs and want to keep enjoying your collection, then a dedicated disc spinner is still the way to go. If you want to take your disc collection to a new level, Cary Audio's CD 500 CD Player may be the last player you'll ever need. Design & FeaturesThe CD 500 retails for $2,995, and for that price you get a machine that's built rock-solid and complemented with top-grade components. The CD 500's digital-to-analog converter ...

Cryoparts Power Strip II Review
Just before Thanksgiving 2010, several boxes arrived at my house – the latest round of gear to review. Among them was Cryoparts Power Strip. As I showed my dad and wife the newest goodies, they both asked with no lack of incredulity, “How do you review a power strip?” I tried to explain the function of audio strips and how they can make a good system even better, but the eye rolls stopped me before I could really get going. That skepticism got me thinking, however. Making Contact – and Keeping ItA power strip is designed to distribute electrical current to one or more devices without imparting a sonic footprint of its own or somehow impeding the flow of electrons. To do so effectively and efficiently, there needs to be secure and jiggle-free contact between the male AC prongs and ...

CES 2011 Press Conference Wrapup
The consumer electronics show kicked off as it always does – with press conferences from the major players, announcing new products, new initiatives, and a little bit of bragging about the last year’s accomplishments.It all started with LG, who had a very mixed event.  There were some cool announcements, but flops to go with each of them.  After the “we had a great 2010” part of the speech was over – that’s the way these things tend to begin – we got to hear a bit more about the massive 12 billion dollar investment that LG made in their research and development team.  It sounds like we can expect some big things in the near future. LG had a strong focus on “smart” products.  It’s a theme that they shared in common with Samsung.  Smart TVs, smart phones and even ...

CES 2011 Preview
The Consumer Electronics Show is just a couple days away, and there's plenty of excitement going into it.  It's a time for big announcements, exciting technologies and perhaps the part we all look forward to - new product launches. Every CES is different and every CES brings something new.  It's like Christmas day for the industry.  Each booth is like a present under the tree just waiting to be opened.  Sometimes you get exactly what you wanted, sometimes there's a surprise and sometimes you get reindeer socks from your weird aunt.The last few Consumer Electronics Shows have showcased 3D televisions, Blu-ray players and height channel audio, declaring each year to be the big one for 3D.  This CES is going to be even more 3D focused than the last few - it's time for that big push to see if ...
