Tuesday, 24 February 2009 ,  Written by Mike Flacy
Ensconced in a multitude of luxurious homes, we got a chance to visit the Haven event on a private estate last week.  Haven is a pre-Oscar, three day event for celebrities and media that included entertainment, charitable activities and a variety of companies offering a glimpse at their product lines.  We made the trek through the maze of finely manicured streets of Beverly Hills and popped into the event on Friday afternoon.We wandered into the estate and took a quick tour of the grounds.  The photographers around the red carpet appeared pensively waiting for the next group of celebrities to roll in.  Lining the house, an oasis-themed swimming pool framed the open area and lead up to an expansive, overlook view of Los Angeles.  Inside the house, waiters and waitresses scurried around with little plates of appetizers and the throng ...

McIntosh MC501 Monoblock Power Amplifier
As World War II was just ending, Frank McIntosh was starting up an audio company that would emerge as the benchmark audio manufacturer setting the bar for high-end audio components over the next 70 years. The performance level of Frank’s audio components was at such a high standard, even from its initial start-up, that television stations all over America sought out his mono tube power amplifier called the 50W-1 to be fully integrated into their television production facilities starting in 1949. The technology that powers that amp, the Unity Coupled Circuit, is still being used today. The McIntosh line of high-end audio components only achieved further greatness when they started branching out into the consumer field in 1967 when their engineers designed their first solid-state product, the C24 preamplifier, which the early audiophiles of the 1960’s cleaned out their bank ...

Marantz SR5003 AV Receiver
The Marantz SR5003 AV Receiver is a mid-range AV Receiver that sports many high-end features.

This model has 90 watt per channel and 7 channel surround sound that will satisfy even longtime home theater enthusiasts with its combination of power and performance all for a low MSRP of around $800.The SR5003’s linear power supply is engineered using a high-capacity EI core transformer.

As a result, video and control signals will not interfere with the system by providing optimum isolation.The SR5003 also accommodates all of the latest high-resolution audio formats like DTS-HD in High ...

Mitsubishi WD-65835 DLP HDTV
IntroductionWhile CES 2009 has brought us legions of 7 millimeter thick flat screen televisions, DLP rear projection televisions are still a predominant force in driving the high definition television market.  Firmly committed to manufacturing rear-projection televisions, Mitsubishi continues to release new models of the DLP HDTV’s.  Within their newest Diamond series line, they offer 65” and 73” sizes.  The obvious advantage to going the DLP route is purchasing more screen space for less money out of pocket.Mitsubishi’s Diamond 835 (WD-65835) is a touch under 75 pounds and is actually quite manageable for its weight.  The cabinet depth is slightly over 15 inches and the casing around the screen is surprisingly thin for a television of this size.  The height of the TV falls just under 40 inches and the width clocks in at 58 inches.  This 1080p DLP has a ...

Marantz MM8003 Power Amplifier
Introduction When I first heard that the MM8003, the companion piece to Marantz’s new audio/video processor, the recently reviewed AV8003, was going to be a 8 channel amplifier I thought it was kind of strange. Now that it is here I see that the 8 channel idea was well thought out. A 8 channel amplifier can power an entire 7.1 system with a passive amplifier such as those found in many in-wall systems; four separate stereo systems; a 5.1 system with the left, center and right speakers bi-amped or the mostly likely use, powering a 5.1 system in one zone and a stereo system in another zone. Each of the MM8003’s 8 channels is rated at 140 watts with less than .08 percent total harmonic distortion with a signal to noise ratio of 105dB. The power supply providing the juice for ...
