JL Audio Dominion d108 Subwoofer Review
JL Audio, based in Miramar, FL, is without question one of the handful of top tier subwoofer manufacturers in the world. Some of the best-sounding and lavish systems I've heard had JL Audio subs in place, even with full range loudspeakers. JL Audio is actually quite diversified, producing not only subs, but full systems and components for cars, boats, and custom applications. Audiophiles, however, know JL for their impressive-looking, audiophile-grade subwoofers like their mighty Gotham V2 flagship model, which costs $15,000. The Gotham V2 goes down past 20 Hz, and weighs a back breaking 372 Lbs! Next in line is the Fathom V2, followed by the E-Sub line, and now the recently designed entry level models, the Dominion Series. The Dominion series allows audiophiles entry into JL’s famous designs at a fraction of the cost, but with little compromise, according ...

John Kenny Ciunas USB DAC Review
To say the USB market is saturated would be an understatement. To say the affordable USB DAC market is crowded, would be even more so. I define “affordable” as under $1000. There are a slew of new products under $300 that have flooded the market, but those are mostly, if not all, considered “portable” devices. Affordable USB DACs come in every conceivable size and shape, with varying resolution capabilities, power schemes, and build quality. Most offer a single USB input, since a computer is the assumed source, but others offer additional S/PDIF inputs as well.   USB DACs have taken high-end audio by storm due the popularity of using computers as digital source components. The optical disc player is going the way of the dinosaur according to those who claim to be ahead of the curve. This may be partly due ...

JVC DLA-RS40U Reference Series 3D-Ready Home Cinema Projector Preview
Love it or hate it, 3D was inescapable at CEDIA Expo 2010, and alongside their premium and high end projector competitors, JVC has announced three new Reference Series 3D Home Cinema Projectors.  The entry-level "3D-ready" DLA-RS40U uses JVC's D-ILA imagine technology and features a single lamp rated to 1300 ANSI Lumens to achieve a native resolution of 50,000:1.Native contrast ratio refers to the intrinsic ability of the projector to show the complete range of image contrast simultaneously in every frame.  JVC avoids implementing a dynamic iris to artificially inflate contrast specifications, but rather uses a wire-grid polarizer to reduce stray light.  This means deep blacks and bright whites living together in harmony.In JVC's attempts to find the most film-like images in 2D and 3D, the DLA-RS40U uses an upgraded version of its Clear Motion Drive to reduce motion blurring, and ...

JVC XV-BP1 Blu-ray Player Review
JVC’s XV-BP1 has a terribly bright light at the front of its unit, reminding one a bit of the flood lamps at the front of the spaceship in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.  The brightness can potentially be off-putting, especially with close proximity to the viewing screen.  It might seem a little unorthodox to mention something aesthetic like that in the first lines of a review, but there’s a reason; aside from that, and a strange “happy accident” anomaly that jumps disc playback straight to the start of the programming upon boot-up, this 1080/24p, Profile 2.0 player delivers an impressive, unproblematic punch with its capabilities.  Though it might be quiet and flex quite a bit of audiovisual muscle, it’s the fact that the player is lightning fast that makes it a strong competitor against the standard onslaught of heavy-hitters ...

JVC LT-47P789 LCD HDTV
Introduction Given the iPod’s huge impact on nearly every segment of the home entertainment space, it’s surprising that TV manufacturers have not embraced direct iPod integration en masse. Sure, many have embraced the integration of digital media in general, through USB ports, memory-card readers, and streaming media. But few have taken an iPod-specific approach. Maybe that’s because many of the big names in TV also sell Windows-based PCs, and they’d really prefer you stream your music and videos via that platform. Whatever the reason, JVC has decided to buck the trend and develop a complete line of LCD HDTVs that feature an integrated iPock docking station through which you can listen to your music library and watch your videos, including copy-protected content purchased from the iTunes Store. The integrated approach seems convenient enough, but is it really a better solution than ...
