Dali Suite 2.8 Speaker System
Introduction Home theater manufacturers continue to offer consumers better performance for less money. Gone are the days when high-quality home theaters cost tens of thousands of dollars. Driving this trend is the proliferation and availability of affordable high-definition televisions, which come in the form of plasma, LCD, D-ILA and DLP rear-projection sets that cost anywhere from $1,500 to $5,500. Add in a reasonable 5.1-channel audio playback system and you can have an amazing home theater without breaking the bank. But what if you are a more serious listener and seek to build a component-based home theater that trumps the theater-in-a-box solution? Now more than ever, components are available that challenge laws of diminishing returns by offering much of the outstanding performance, build quality and aesthetics of high-end systems for a fraction of the high-end price. Dali Loudspeakers is a relatively new player in the ultra-competitive U.S. audio-video market. In Europe, Dali is a force with over ...

Definitive Technology ProCinema 80 Speaker System
Introduction There is no denying that large speakers create large sound. Until recent years, options for the size-conscious were limited and always included compromise. Thanks to companies like Definitive Technology, there are speakers that come in small packages and produce large high-quality sound. No longer are you confronted with the difficult decision of either a large floor-standing speaker or a sub-par-sounding AV speaker system. Priced at $999, the ProCinema 80 system is at a competitive price point inhabited by most large speaker manufacturers. Yet Definitive Technology is not your average speaker manufacturer. We have reviewed many Definitive Technology speakers over the years and they consistently rank at the top of their respective price classes. They have built a reputation for providing high performance and exceptional value at reasonable price points. The ProCinema 80 system falls in the middle of the ProCinema lineup between the smaller 60 and the larger 100. The ProCinema 80 system is comprised of four ...

D-Box Quest Integrated Motion Simulation System
Introduction You have probably noticed the vast library of articles in AVRev.com covering the latest and greatest video and audio components our industry has to offer you, the enthusiastic consumer. Much of the focus for home theater has been on enhancing sight and sound stimuli while watching movies, but what about the other senses? Certainly seeing and hearing a car crash can be exciting. Amazingly, now you can add the sense of touch to the crash. For years, there have been products that you bolt to your chairs that make your butt rumble and shake, yet these systems succeeded in doing little more than making my rear itch. The D-BOX Quest chair is a completely new, revolutionary product that adds rumble and shaking effects to your simulated crash, as well as real-time motion, getting you one step closer to actually participating in the action. The D-BOX Quest recliner/loveseat uses a two-axis motion simulator system to ...

Dish Network 921 HD Satellite Receiver/DVR
Introduction After owning my new 61-inch rear-projection HDTV for about 30 minutes, I started jonesing hard for a High Definition PVR. When I finally made the move to HD, tacking on a few thousand dollars for the set and a extra few bucks to my monthly satellite bill, I somehow had justified in my mind that I could just live with my standard definition TiVo running into my TV and that someday later, I would own an HD PVR. That “someday” came about a week later for me. I called up Dish Network to inquire about the cost of their 921 receiver and, much to my chagrin, it was in the $1,000 range, priced comparably with their HD TiVo competition from DirecTV. (Note: The 921 is currently priced at $549 according to Dish Network.) This price point is a barrier to entry for most home theater enthusiasts, but it just so happens that ...

AV Education on RHT Darkness: A Theater's Best Friend Written by Michael Levy As a child, Sundays were frequently spent at the local Lowe’s Paradise Theater. It truly was a paradise for me. How little I knew back then that I was watching a medium at the height of its glory. The screen was huge and often opened into panoramic width. There were dimly lit stars on the ceiling, feigning a midnight sky as I watched the stars on the screen. Everything was dark maroon. The seats and the walls were velvet. The only lights during movies were dimly lit guides to your seat on the floor. My first memories of it were from when I was very young. I was small enough to sink into the plush seat and in love with movies enough to be lost in the new world on the screen projected through the darkness. Yes, darkness, an important ...
