Logitech Harmony 1000 Advanced Universal Remote
Introduction The first TV remote was made by Zenith in 1950. Called “Lazy Bones,” it allowed you to change the channels and to turn the TV on and off. It came with a 20-foot wire connecting it to the set. The first wireless remote also came from Zenith in 1955, using a directional flashlight to activate its then-incredible four control functions; the “flashlight” system meant stray sunlight activated functions at any given time. Within a year, Zenith switched to an ultrasonic remote that added almost 30 percent to the cost of the set. This became the first practical remote control. It wasn’t until the early ‘80s that IR (infrared) technology replaced the ultrasonic remotes and, thankfully for us, now we have IR, RF (Radio Frequency), Bluetooth, WiFi and surely more technologies to come. When the first remotes came out, a single remote for your TV was fine. Fast forward 50 years and we now have ...

Leon Horizon LCR-515-A On-wall LCR Speaker
Introduction Flat panel TVs are all the rage these days. Their large displays, affordable prices and ability to hang on the wall allow you to free up precious floor space without compromising on video. Adding equally impressive audio to a flat panel has its problems. Leon Speaker Corporation has a solution. Founded in 1995, Leon designed the first LCR speaker in 2000; they make speakers designed to match any flat panel TV in size, shape and color. They use quality drivers and offer multiple options to suit your taste and situation. The Horizon line-up of LCR (left, center, right) speakers designed to mount above or below your display is available for displays 32 to 65 inches in size. The speakers come with three- to six-inch bass drivers, depending on your wants and needs, and in a standard or audiophile “A” designation, which utilizes higher-quality bass drivers. I received Leon’s Horizon LCR 515-A, with adjustable wall-mount ...

LG Electronics 42LB1DR LCD HDTV
Introduction The old saying is true: There’s no such thing as a free lunch … or a free DVR. Okay, maybe I added that last part, but it’s worth mentioning. In one way or another, you will pay for the wonderful convenience of time-shifting, be it a lump sum for an external box, a monthly service fee from your cable or satellite provider, or both. A few television manufacturers have decided to try a new approach: build the DVR into the TV itself. It lessens the number of boxes and cables in your equipment rack, and – if said TV is an HDTV – it allows you to record high-definition content without confronting copy-protection issues. LG Electronics is one such manufacturer; their 2006 TV line includes six models with internal DVRs (four plasmas and two LCD HDTVs). Screen sizes range from 42 to 60 inches, and each model uses the free TV Guide On ...

Lexicon RT-20 Universal Disc Player
Introduction When Lexicon first introduced the RT-10 Universal Disc Player in 2003, it was considered by many an ambitious project. Subsequently, the Proceed Audio brand was discontinued and the Harman Specialty Group (HSG) was formed. Harman International formed HSG on the cornerstone of three key brands: Mark Levinson, Lexicon and Revel. The RT-10 would be scrutinized by home theater industry experts and consumers alike, not only because it was HSG’s first foray into source componentry – the Mark Levinson brand did not and still does not manufacture a video source component although the No. 51 will be available soon – but also because it came on the heels of Proceed’s $6,000 PMDT universal transport, which had a litany of reliability issues until it was eventually discontinued. In addition, Lexicon would enter this high-stakes reference-quality segment of the market by designing the RT-10 as a hybrid player featuring two new technologies: Super Audio CD (SACD) and DVD-Audio ...
