Definitive Technology SuperCube Trinity Signature Subwoofer
Introduction There are few more challenging tasks in the sport of home theater than selecting and setting up a subwoofer in your system. What makes a subwoofer such a challenging selection is perhaps best explained by its name. The operative section of the word is “sub,” which refers to subsonic frequencies that are defined by being for the most part inaudible. Although subwoofers also handle higher audible frequencies, the meat and potatoes of a sub are better felt than heard. The Definitive Technology SuperCube Trinity Subwoofer is an incarnation developed specifically for the Trinity Church in New York. When Definitive Technology was approached with the challenge of amplifying and accurately reproducing the church’s massive pipe organs, Definitive rose to the occasion. Providing a single bi-polar tower for each organ pipe, the Trinity Sub has been designed to become the cornerstone and low-end reinforcement of the most challenging instrument in the world to reproduce – the mighty ...

Definitive Technology BP7000SC Bipolar Super Tower Loudspeakers
Introduction Definitive Technology has built one of the single most impressive brands in the highly competitive world of loudspeakers. Definitive has built a name where they are a “call brand” loudspeaker that consumers demand with the likes of Bose, Boston Acoustics, B&W, Paradigm, Klipsch and a handful of the other biggest manufacturers. While Definitive Technology’s ads and mighty distribution certainly have aided the company’s growth, it is more the bang for the buck performance that keeps consumers asking for them and dealers pushing. Whether you are looking for wafer-thin speakers for your new 63-inch HDTV or you need no-holds-barred audiophile floor-standing speakers, Definitive has a solution for you. In the case of this review, the Super Towers are in the latter class – they are ultimate floor-standing speakers, a statement without question in terms of sound as well as value. The BP7000SCs arrived at my house right on the heels of some of audiophiles’ most touted ...

Definitive Technology Mythos Eight On-Wall Loudspeakers
Introduction Over the last few of years, the AV industry has enjoyed an enormous boost in enthusiasm, with much of its momentum due to the recent advancements in video technology. Though they once seemed like sci-fi or something from a Jetsons’ episode, flat televisions that hang on the wall are becoming commonplace in home theaters across the country. With the flat TVs’ increasing size and quickly dropping prices, mainstream America can walk into a Best Buy or Costco and pick up a mighty fine HDTV that can be the centerpiece of a respectable home theater system for $2,000 or sometimes even less. Once you invest in your flat HDTV, you now have to deal with another issue: how do you get speakers to match? In many rooms, the advantage of a flat HDTV is the fact that it is actually flat. Traditional speakers are generally anything but flat, so in order to remove all of ...

Datacolor SpyderTV Display Calibration Kit
Introduction Home theater enthusiasts have long known about the need for video calibration. For years, the Imaging Science Foundation has trained professionals to return your set to the standards that filmmakers and broadcast companies expect. Yet the average consumer sometimes might ask why there is a need for video calibration at all. Why don’t video companies with vast resources set the latest and greatest HDTVs correctly at the factory? While most manufacturers have improved their picture quality since the ISF and Joe Kane made us all aware of the necessity for calibrating our monitors, most HDTVs still need calibration out of the box. They are usually set up to deliver the most “impressive” image, not the most accurate. Imagine that you are trying to sell HDTVs under the giant sodium lights at Costco, not in the light-controlled rooms of a high-end custom integrator – you might bump the brightness a little to move some boxes, ...

DVDO by Anchor Bay iScan VP30 Video Processor
Introduction DVDO burst onto the home theater scene in the late 1990s with a 480p video processor, shocking manufacturers and consumers alike with a $599 list price point. The surprise was not so much the low price, but the fact that it produced awesome pictures for so little money. Only a few years before that, good 480p video processing, or what we used to call “line doubling,” from Faroudja’s venerable LD-100 carried a list price of $15,000. Since then, the company has continued to put out head-turning video processing products that remain the best bang for the buck in the home theater industry. Enter the VP30 with a list price of $1,999, with a virtual plethora of useful features and near state-of-the-art video performance. Many of you might be wondering why I would need a video processor anyway. There are a number of different reasons you might want a product like the DVDO VP30. One is ...
