LG BD390 Blu-ray Player Preview
With as much a focus on network and streaming options as on video and audio performance LG’s BD390 Blu-ray Player is loaded to the gills with extras. The BD390 from LG is one of few Blu-ray players to offer a built in WiFi connection.  LG even one ups most other WiFi enabled BD players by offering integrated 802.11n capability, rather than the 802.11g that’s more commonly found in consumer electronics.  Whether connected wirelessly or via the Ethernet port, the BD390 can access a wide variety of net based video streaming sources.  Vudu, YouTube, and Netflix are available right out of the box, though to use Roxio’s CinemaNow service, owners may need to download a firmware update. LG’s BD390 lacks any streaming audio channels, but does have the ability to stream files directly from a PC.  The standard assortment of audio formats ...

Logitech Squeezebox Radio Review
With the rash of recent A/V components integrating the plethora of web related, streaming audio content into their feature set, Logitech has been streamlining their delivery of the same content in their Squeezebox series.  The Squeezebox Radio is Logitech’s most recent release into this field.  The compact form factor of the Squeezebox Radio is designed for an audience looking to bring their library of music into a smaller room.  Additionally, the Squeezebox Radio is ideal for those who have a Wi-Fi network already established for streaming audio files. The Squeezebox (MSRP: $199.99) comes packaged in a small box and wrapped in light plastic packaging.  It also comes wrapped in a thin plastic film designed to keep smudges off the finish.  The piano black, glossy finish (also available in red) is very susceptible to fingerprints and dust is very visible as ...

LessLoss Dynamic Filtering Power Cable
Cables have always been a subject of skeptical scrutiny for me.  Many, many years ago, cables were simply cables; absent of any dissection of quality.  My weekly discussions with fellow installers were always spent on vehemently arguing over equipment performance rather than the cables running said components.  These days, cables are the subject of rampant discussion and choosing the correct cables often means wading through lengthy manufacturer diatribes to let your ears make the correct choice.  Liudas Motekaitis (aka Louis Motek), the managing director of LessLoss, was kind enough to send us over a batch of 10 dynamic filtering power cables (DFPC) in a variety of lengths.  Packaged tightly in plastic bags, the cables made the overseas trip from Lithuania safely and landed on my doorstep the following week.  The cables are generally tough to damage to begin with and ...

Logitech Harmony 1100 Remote
Harmony is a great name for this Universal Remote Control. Its main objective is to allow the user to eliminate all other remotes and solely use the 1100 as the single entity to direct multiple home theater devices needing orders at the same time. Logitech spares no modesty in its confidence to do just that, as the startup screen on the 1100 welcomes you with its boastful claim, “Finally, One Remote To Control Them All.”  And that it does. How well it does that is up to you.The Harmony 1100 has a few tweaks that its predecessor, the 1000 model, arguably needed from the start. The overall consensus is that it is significantly faster, not only in touchscreen response time but also the IR transmission. It is also black instead of silver, a concept I think many purists still are ...

LG BD-300 Blu-ray Player
The BasicsThis Blu-Ray player is somewhat of a letdown, both in sound and video quality as well as its feature-set.  It retails at a suggested price of just under $400, but offers few frills or even many standard features in mid-priced Blu-Ray players of its class.  It is a Profile 2.0 player, so it is capable of accessing BD-Live content, as well as playing BonusView video.The video and audio outputs on this device are designed for current technology, but they offer nothing to owners of older AV receivers.  The BD-300 features HDMI, component video, digital optical and digital coaxial outputs, but there are no analog inputs whatsoever.  This player is coupled with the Netflix “Watch Now” program, meaning that Netflix subscribers can play Netflix films on their television sets as opposed to the videos being locked on their PCs. When ...
