MartinLogan SL3 Loudspeakers
In the eye of the beholder My first encounter with MartinLogan electrostatic loudspeakers came years back. Like most newcomers to this genre of speaker, I greeted them with amazement. I found the sheer glamour of this futuristic speaker to be simply awesome. The SL3s have a retail price of $3,400 for the standard black or natural oak trim. They stand 64 inches tall and are a sleek 13 inches wide. The basic construction of this hybrid loudspeaker consists of a side- supported perforated panel, which you can see right through. The electrostatic panel sits atop the integrated low-frequency speaker enclosure. Connection options include hand-tightened bi-wire posts with banana plug inputs. The reason to be passionate about this unique speaker is its electrostatic technology. Simply explained, the lower mid- range through the top octaves are created by taking two pieces of perforated steel, then sandwiching a thin film of clear conductive plastic between them. The electrostatic ...

Miller & Kreisel 5.1 Speaker System (S-85/S-85C/MX-105)
Introduction When considering a satellite and subwoofer combo for your home theater, Miller and Kreisel should be at the forefront of your list of quality manufacturers to consider. Now in its 25th year of manufacturing home and professional electronics, the innovative M&K has largely been responsible for the now mandatory stand-alone subwoofer craze in home theater applications. Their ongoing commitment to the sub and satellite approach to home theater has lead to the production of the S-85 satellites ($695), S-85Ccenter channel ($395) and MX105 subwoofer ($995) featured in this review. The satellites and center speaker share 5 1/4 inch drivers along with a 1 inch soft-dome tweeter and have a frequency range of 85 Hz - 20KHz + - 2dB. The MX105 sub operates from 22 Hz -125 Hz + - 3 dB and sports dual push pull 12 inch drivers moved into action by a 125 watt internal amplifier. The satellites and center channel angled ...

Magnum Audio MP 160 Stereo Preamplifier
Introduction Magnum, a small British audio component manufacturer, was started several years ago by the one of the founding fathers of the REGA Planar turntable. Today, Magnum is making their line of mosfet integrated, pre and power amplifiers, CD players and loudspeakers available to audiophiles and music lovers throughout the U.S. I was fortunate enough to procure the MP 160 ($750 USD) preamplifier and the MF 160 ($750 USD) power amplifier and have had the two pieces in and out of my audio system over the last few months. The MP 160 preamplifier is a slim-line unit featuring all single ended inputs and outputs and boasts an internal power supply. The front panel features an on/off switch, three buttons each (tape monitor, mute and mono functions), an input selector along side balance and volume controls. Also, to add even more value, the MP 160 comes not only with a phono section but a user selectable ...

Millennium DTS Decoder/AV Preamplifier
Introduction The Millennium DTS Decoder/Preamp is a simple black box, offering an upgrade path for most multi-channel sound systems. Using the Millennium's multi-channel preamp inputs and outputs, you send the signal from your current A/V preamp through the Millennium for decoding and back again. The Millennium offers two digital inputs, coax and optical (Toslink). A digital output is also provided, which I used to feed a Theta 396 D-to-A converter (DAC). In the event you don't have a full five speaker plus subwoofer system, there are dip switches for down converting the DTS bitstream into a configuration that matches your system, be it 5.1, 4, or 2 channel. A set-up CD, with white noise for calibrating each channel, is included in the packaging. While there is nothing difficult about the set-up, the manual-only controls mean you have to continually get up from your listening position to adjust the levels until they are right. Additionally, the Millennium ...
