Denon DBP-4010UDCI Blu-ray Player Review
The realm of the reference Blu-ray player can be a fickle one nowadays, where a home theater enthusiast is asked to take an even larger leap of faith above the rest of the pack for incremental improvements.  However, it’s these nudges upwards in quality that create an even more satisfying experience, which is the climate where Denon’s Reference DBP-4010UDCI Universal Blu-ray player makes its entrance.  For a $2,000 list price, you’re going to get a rather impressive-performing audiovisual Blu-ray device; however, the price tags also comes with a few hindrances that’ll squelch a good bit of HD-ready eagerness, namely some time-lagged quirks under the hood and some aesthetic grievances that shouldn’t be experienced with such a esteemed piece of equipment.  Still, the precision once up and roaring is exceptional, boasting the advanced-performing quality with Anchor Bay Technology’s VRS video processor ...

Davone RITHM Loudspeakers Review
As a kid I my family took a trip from my home in Beavercreek, Ohio, to Boulder, Colorado, for a visit with my mom's relatives. On the way we stopped in St. Louis, Missouri, for a day to take in a Cardinals baseball game and journey to the top of the St. Louis Arch. I was a huge baseball fan and any chance to catch a game outside my “home” Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati seemed as cosmopolitan an experience as a 10-year-old could imagine. Couple that with a story I had read about a guy who tried to catch a baseball dropped from the top of the arch, only to end up with a broken jaw, heightened the anticipation. It was a surreal ride, though, clumbering up the arch's 630 feet of curvature via an enclosed tram. The little cars ...

Denon DHT-FS3 Sound Bar
The Basics:The Denon DHT-FS3 Soundbar is a slim surround sound system designed to trim down pesky wires and provide a user-friendly experience.  The sound bar is most successfully place directly underneath the television screen for the most effective audio distribution.  The rear panel of the sound bar offers connections for coaxial, optical, A/V and iPod connections.  The DHT-FS3 sound bar contains six speakers that implement Denon’s “X-Space Surround” technology to create a simulated surround sound experience.  The surround algorithms are essentially sound waves directed to specific sections of the room.  TV viewers will get the best performance in the center of the room, but the sound waves do cover a wide range through the empty space.  The 15” by 14.2” subwoofer is surprisingly slim at 4 inches thick.  Due to the smaller size, the output wattage is 40 watts with ...
