Mordaunt-Short Mezzo Loudspeakers and Subwoofer Review
I'm a dog lover. I have two English Springer Spaniels, 7 years apart in age, and both are my favorites. I would hate to choose between the two and don't think I could. In the same respect, it's hard to separate my thoughts of Mordaunt-Short's Mezzo speakers from Cambridge Audio's Azur 650R AV Receiver. I lived with both for several months, and the pairing took my living room/entertainment room to a new level. The Mordaunt-Short Mezzo lineup includes six speakers, four of which feature in this review: a pair of Mezzo 2 stand-mount speakers ($795), a pair of Mezzo 6 floorstanders ($1,495), one Mezzo 5 center speaker ($595) and the Mezzo 9 subwoofer ($1,295). Design & SpecsThe Mezzos all feature curved cabinets, which according to Mordaunt-Short, “discourages the build up of standing waves for a cleaner and more realistic sound.” ...

Marantz AV7005 AV Processor/Preamp / MM7055 Power Amplifier Review
The ability to replicate the movie theater experience in the home would have been a dream just ten years ago. Multi-channel components and large screen televisions and projectors were expensive and heavy. Add to that the fact there was little multi-channel content available. Today along with DVDs and Blu-ray discs all mixed in 7.1, plus High Definition digital cable boxes that allow broadcasters to offer 5.1 surround sound, it is a whole new ballgame. The advancements in home theater components have been dizzying, especially in the past two years, with network and internet connectivity, iPod streaming, HDMI switching, software based room correction and speaker set up all being thrown into the mix of features offered by most major manufacturers. More powerful multichannel receivers and power amps have also brought the home experience closer to the real thing. Almost every major speaker company ...

McIntosh MC302 Stereo Amplifier Preview
McIntosh has announced two brand new Stereo Amplifiers featuring the latest advancements in both electronic component and material design to delivery accuracy, warmth, and emotional impact in music reproduction.  The lesser expensive MC302 was designed to be paired with McIntosh's recently announced C48 Stereo Control Unit.  McIntosh claims the 300 watt-per-channel MC302 is the most advanced amplifier they've ever produced at this power level.  The higher power allows each connected loudspeaker to reach its full audio potential.  Helping ensure high-quality music reproduction are all new patent-spending speaker wire binding posts.Designed to be durable like all their long-lasting products, the MC302 from McIntosh is able to deliver full rated power to speakers of all shapes and sizes.  Further, the MC302 is engineered to run "cool" in normal use without an extraneous noise from the connected chassis or speakers.  This unit uses ...

MartinLogan CLX Art Floorstanding Loudspeaker Preview
Premium speaker designer MartinLogan has announced a new flagship in its Reserve ESL Series of full-range electrostatic line source loudspeakers.  Living up to its name, the CLX Art is an update of the older CLX linear frame model and is a dynamic visually as it should be powerful sonically.  It features new Art Frame styling (press release-ese for "an additional piece of hardwood framing"), stainless steel binding posts, and premium power cords.  However, if the new looks aren't for you, the CLX will remain available as special order.The CLX Art from MartinLogan uses dual electrostatic transducers (a XStat CSL high frequency, and a DualForce double diaphragm, triple stator dipole low) to vibrate air and reproduce faithful, perfect sound in unmatched detail.  I've personally heard the CLX Art's cheaper siblings and they sound rich and full, but I understand that electrostatic ...

McIntosh C50 Stereo Preamp Preview
The sound gurus at McIntosh have announced two brand new Stereo Control Centers.  The more expensive C50 is a replacement for the C46 preamplifier and is designed to mate with the McIntosh MC452 for maximum performance (and to make beautiful sound babies), but will work seamlessly with any McIntosh amplifier.The C50 from McIntosh is set to offer more flexibility and performance capabilities than any previous McIntosh Control Centers.  It seems most stereo preamplifiers are designed to work primarily with analog music sources, which of course the C50 will do in spades, but it also plans to enhance contemporary digital sources as well, including tuners, CD players, music servers, and USB storage devices.For flexibility, the C50 may be combined with multi-channel audio systems by using the Pass Through feature, which allows the stereo system to be selectively folded into a home ...
