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 ...

Definitive Technology SuperCube I Subwoofer
Introduction Several design philosophies differentiate today’s better subwoofers from one another, yet they share a very common attribute: they are designed to shake the fillings from your teeth. A high-performing subwoofer can supply the necessary energy to make the common onscreen outbreak at a local dinosaur park feel as if T-Rex has unmistakably made his way to your home. Subwoofers can range in size from monstrosities that resemble your refrigerator to products only slightly larger than a soccer ball. The SuperCube I is the most recent subwoofer offering from Definitive Technology. The SuperCube I is an ultra-compact powered cube that measures just a hair over 14 inches in any direction and is driven by a mighty 1,500-watt amplifier. Although small in stature, the SuperCube I weighs a dense 60 lbs. and has a retail price of $1,200. From a distance, the SuperCube I looks like many cube-style subwoofers. However, close examination reveals a couple of touches that ...
