Definitive Technology 7002 Bipolar Super Towers Loudspeakers
Introduction As much as you love speakers and all the lust-worthy toys that go along with them, one thing you are glad you don’t do for a living is running a start-up speaker company. With names like Infinity, Bose and Boston Acoustics gracing the interiors of some of the finer automobiles and taking out many big-dollar ads in magazines and newspapers, the task of competing in the loudspeaker market has become nearly impossible – actually, it has been that way for more than 20 years. I say “nearly” impossible because one man, Sandy Gross, has been at the head of launching two speaker companies – Polk and Definitive Technology – that have not only made it but prospered. Definitive Technology, Gross’ current company makes some of the sleekest, most powerful speakers designed for home theater systems. Have they sold their souls to the Devil to be able to rock Axis’ Bold as Love in ...

Denon DVD-2900 Universal Disc Player
Introduction Audio enthusiasts struggle to understand why every DVD player can’t always play every kind of disc. The answer is complicated and often has to do with nothing more than the raw cost of the universal drives. It is expensive, especially for a high-end audio/video company, to buy a transport from an OEM manufacturer and make it into a player that can play all of the new formats. Some of the early players that can play both DVD-Audio and SACD skimp on bass management for SACD and/or convert DSD (the technology that makes SACD sound its best) into PCM, which is the technology that is most associated with DVD and even CD. For an audio enthusiast, these compromises are wholly unacceptable, which presents a difficult challenge. In order to do DVD-Audio and SACD correctly, audiophiles needed separate players, as well as a receiver or a preamp with two sets of six-channel analog inputs. Up ...

Dynaudio Audience 5.1 Speaker System
Introduction Dynaudio is a Danish company known for over 25 years for producing high-quality speakers ranging from affordable bookshelf models to some of the finest, priciest transducers in the world. In addition to the speakers produced directly by Dynaudio, astute audio enthusiasts may have noticed that many famous high-end speaker makers also use Dynaudio drivers in order to build their own speakers. In recent years, Dynaudio has picked up significant momentum in the ultra-competitive affordable speaker market and their relatively new Audience line represents Dynaudio’s latest effort to bring their design expertise to an affordable price level. The Audience system reviewed here retails for less than $4,000 and is comprised of the model 62 ($1,350) mini-towers for the front left and right channels, the 42c ($450) and 42 ($800) for the center and surround channels and the Sub-20A ($1,209) for the low-frequency effects channel. These prices include the wood veneer finishes that are available in four flavors. Even though ...
