HP LC4776N LCD HDTV
The Basics: HP’s 2007 LCD lineup consists of four 1080p models: two 42-inchers and two 47-inchers. These four models utilize the same TV technologies and should perform similarly; the two models with the MediaSmart designation add a broadband Internet connection and a built-in digital media receiver. The LC4776N is the basic 47-inch, 1080p model, without MediaSmart. Previous HP LCDs were heavily based on Sharp LCD technology and consequently performed pretty well. These new models do not appear to be based on Sharp technology, and the change is not necessarily a good one for HP. On the plus side, the LC4776N has a healthy connection panel that includes three side-facing HDMI inputs that accept both 1080p/60 and 1080p/24. Unfortunately, this TV offers only the most basic picture adjustments, like preset picture modes and color temperature settings. There’s no adjustable backlight to tailor the ...

Hitachi P50T501 Plasma HDTV
The Basics: Hitachi was one of the first manufacturers to release 42- and 50-inch “1080” plasma models in 2007; however, many of these models do not have full 1920 x 1080 resolution, and all of them use a special panel technology called ALiS (Alternate Lighting of Surfaces) that causes them to perform more like a 1080i panel. The 50-inch P50T501 has a 1280 x 1080 resolution, and only alternate rows can be illuminated at the same time, so you never get a full progressive 1080-line image on the screen.

HP MediaSmart SL4278N LCD HDTV
The Basics: HP’s 2007 LCD lineup consists of four 1080p models: two 42-inchers and two 47-inchers. These four models utilize the same TV technologies and should perform similarly. The SL4278N includes HP’s MediaSmart function, which adds a broadband Internet connection and a built-in digital media receiver that allows you to stream music, photos and video from compatible Windows PCs and UPnP servers over your home network. Through the broadband connection, you can stream Internet radio and rent/buy movies directly via the TV, with no PC required. You can add the TV to your network through the Ethernet port or wirelessly via 802.11a/b/g/n. Last year’s HP LCDs were heavily based on Sharp LCD technology and consequently performed pretty well. These new models do not appear to be based on Sharp technology, and the change is not necessarily a good one for HP. ...

Hitachi L47V651 LCD HDTV
The Basics: Hitachi produces both plasma and LCD flat panels. The company reserves its bigger screen sizes for the plasma arena, so this 47-inch, 1080p model is the largest in the LCD lineup. The TV has a 1920 x 1080 resolution and uses a Super In-Plane Switching (S-IPS) panel to improve its motion and viewing angle; however, it does not offer 120Hz technology. The connection panel sports three HDMI inputs (including one on the side panel) that accept 1080p/60 but not 1080p/24. You also get two HD-capable component video inputs, plus an RS-232 port to integrate the TV into a more advanced control system. The side-panel SD card reader allows you to view JPEG photos on the 47-inch screen. The menu includes a solid but not extensive amount of picture adjustments. You get several preset picture modes, color temperature options and an adjustable ...

Harmonic Resolution Systems SXR Series
HRS makes some of the most beautiful and expensive audio racks. The SXR line is the baby brother to their reference MXR series.  The SXR utilizes a modular frame made from billet-machined aircraft aluminum with a resonance control system, giving the racks a modern industrial look. This design allows the owner to adjust and modify shelf height by swapping out the support bars for pieces of different lengths. You can increase or decrease the size of the rack, either vertically or horizontally, as your needs change. Prices start at $2,740 for an amp stand to over $15,000 for a four-shelf unit, and double that if you want a double-wide. These racks are truly beautiful and no detail is missed.  The fit and finish is world-class and the technology behind them topnotch. If you have the money and want the best, ...
