CES 2009 is over, but there’s still much to talk about.  As with every year, there are a lot of technological advances that stand out as big successes and those that just flop.  With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the hit or miss HDTV Technologies and Trends of CES 2009. Thin is In! - HITSure it’s a cliché, but that doesn’t make it any less true.   Last year it seemed like each company had only one goal in mind; to make the biggest HDTV possible.  The pull of a television bigger than any room in my house is amazing, if a bit ridiculous.  It’s a bit surprising that no one rolled anything out this year to beat the 150” Panasonic from 2008’s show.  What did make an appearance though were ridiculously thin televisions.From Samsung’s 7mm thick ...

Halcro dm38 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Halcro amplifiers have built themselves quite an impressive reputation in the last few years.  I remember first hearing Halcro at a 2003 CES DTS exhibit. The exhibit had the gorgeous huge H-shaped monoblocks placed next to each speaker.  Shortly thereafter, several other audio magazines reviewed the various available Halcro amplifiers with much praise; one even called a Halcro amplifier “the best amplifier ever.”  Recently, I have had the opportunity to review home theater components from Halcro’s lower-priced and more attainable Logic series.  As one can imagine, I was quite excited when Halcro offered me a chance to review their DM38, a stereo amplifier from their Reference series.  I was anxious to see if Halcro could transfer the sonic qualities from their reference monoblocks to the DM38, which at $20,000 is the least expensive amplifier in their Reference line, and whether ...

HP Pavilion Slimline S3330f Media Center PC
The Basics: Although Hewlett-Packard has exited the living-room Media Center PC business, the company still offers a number of desktop models with Windows Media Center functionality, including the Slimline S3330f. The marquee feature, given the unit’s $949 price, is the inclusion of a Blu-ray/HD DVD player, so you can enjoy both Blu-ray movies and all of those now-obsolete HD DVDs you got for $1 on eBay. The disc drive is also a SuperMulti DVD/CD burner that uses LightScribe labeling technology. The S3330f has a solid connection panel for the price, with HDMI, DVI and coaxial digital audio outputs, as well as six USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, a 15-in-1 card reader and both headphone and microphone jacks. It also supports the addition of HP’s Pocket Media Drive, which lets you add up to 160GB of additional storage. The unit has ...

Hitachi Director’s Series P60X901 Plasma HDTV
The Basics: Hitachi was one of the first manufacturers to introduce 1080 plasma models to the market in 2007. Some of them, including this 60-inch model, have a 1920 x 1080 resolution; however, the use of a special panel technology called ALiS (Alternate Lighting of Surfaces) causes these TVs to perform more like a 1080i panel. Only alternate rows can be illuminated at the same time, so you never see the full progressive 1080-line signal on the screen. The Director Series signifies Hitachi’s highest-end models, and this TV is loaded with features. It employs Hitachi’s Reel60 technology, which functions similarly to 120Hz to reduce the appearance of judder and render smoother movement with film sources. The connection panel includes three HDMI inputs (including one on the front panel), two HD-capable component video inputs, both RS-232 and IR blasters for more advanced ...
