At $850, it comes equipped with many of the tricked-out features you need for a your home theater.

Konka KD-1800U DVD Player
Introduction The KD-1800U is a DVD player that has broken the $200.00 price barrier. The unit lists for an extremely affordable $199.00. That's right: just $199.00. And wait, there's more. The KD-1800U contains many of the features found on higher priced players. All kidding aside, for those of you who are not familiar with Konka, the company is a global consumer electronics company based in China and was established in 1980. The company touts products that have been recognized as the "National Best Selling Products" in China and has been granted "The Most Famous Brand of China" while holding 25% of the Chinese TV market. The United States subsidiary is Konka USA, Ltd. Back to our regularly scheduled programming: I've seen the Konka brand from time to time but have shied away from products on account that I didn't believe that the performance would hold-up. Well, the KD-1800U has turned me around. Some of the features ...

Krell FPB 600 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Unlike many manufacturers' claims of improved performance from one generation to the next, the Krell Full Power Balanced 600 is not only a HUGE improvement over its predecessor the KSA 300S, it is a kick in the head and a punch in the gut to just about everything I have heard before, tube or solid state. In the areas of transparency, mid range and treble purity, and bass control and bass extension; the FPB 600 has that non fatiguing utter ease that sucks me into a recording much the way a live performance can, and reproduced music almost never does. "In this corner, weighing in at..." At 185 pounds, don't even try to lift this thing yourself. Much of the FPB 600s weight comes from its massive pair of toroidal transformers which are wired in parallel and act as the heart of this heaving beast. Rated at 600 watts into 8 ohms, the ...

Krell KAV-300i Integrated Amplifier
Introduction Designing a cost-is-no-object AV system really isn't that hard. Ripping out walls, floating the floor, professionally hanging all sorts of room treatments and installing all of the best electronics practically guarantees a successful result. The problem is, not all of us have the $500,000-plus it takes to achieve all-out audio/video nirvana. A true challenge lies in developing a very high performance system on a much more modest budget. This brings us to the introduction of the Krell KAV-300i integrated amplifier. Priced at $2500 USD and rated at 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms, this little monster gives an up-and-coming high-end music enthusiast the ability to luxuriate in the high-end goodness known as Krell without having to sell any of the children to Gypsies. The Krell KAV-300i is a sleek design operated either by beautifully machined front panel or by remote control. The KAV-300i is equipped with four inputs, one balanced and three unbalanced. Its ...

Kenwood Stage III KM-Z1 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Never known as a manufacturer of high end components, Kenwood's release of the KC-Z1 Home Theater Controller and KM-Z1 Power Amplifier combo, may seem surprising. Part of their Stage 3 line of product, these two components represent Kenwood's attempt at providing high quality home theater solutions. The KC-Z1 Controller offers the latest circuitry for home theater surround sound including Dolby Digital (AC-3) and the upgraded THX designed specifically for 5.1 channel systems as well as Dolby Pro Logic. The companion six-channel 130 watts per channel KM-Z1, can be connected to the KC-Z1 via a convenient dB-25 Preout Audio Connection, which makes interfacing equipment a much simpler prospect, though Kenwood doesn't supply one with the two units. The real genius behind the KC-Z1 is its touch screen panel. The touch screen rests comfortably on the front panel of the unit when not in use, otherwise it is a complete 900 MHz universal remote controller. Programming ...
