Marantz SR5003 AV Receiver
The Marantz SR5003 AV Receiver is a mid-range AV Receiver that sports many high-end features. While a newly designed, aluminum and glass-reinforced body is immediately eye-catching, the SR5003 brings a welcome assortment of technology inside. 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. In addition, well-thought-out capacitors add to this model’s solid design. Much like previous models manufactured by Marantz, the SR5003 mounts all audio circuits on a separate board. 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 ...

Marantz AV8003 AV Preamplifier
The Basics The AV8003 signals Marantz’s re-emergence into the ultra-competitive AV separates market.  At $2,599, the AV8003 is one of the less expensive surround sound processors, positioned to attract those on the verge of buying separates or considering one of today’s uber-receivers, but who prioritize sound quality over bells and whistles.  Utilizing a separate processor and amplifier allows the user to improve the quality of equipment over that offered by most receivers.  An added benefit is that when the processing technologies change so much that a new processor is needed, you can still keep your amplifier.  This theoretically reduces the cost and waste associated with upgrading your equipment. The AV8003 is housed in an aesthetically pleasing chassis, with rounded corners and a clean front panel that features a large display window above a drop-down door.  The window is flanked by a pair ...

Marantz VP-11S2 DLP Video Projector
Introduction Within the past year, there has been a large leap forward in DLP front-projector technology, which has thankfully been accompanied by a noticeable reduction in price.  Marantz, well known for manufacturing topnotch gear, has been at the forefront of this evolution with their VP-11S1, VP-15S1 and now their VP-11S2 projectors.  The VP-11S2 reviewed here is their current top of the line projector.  It replaces their VP-11S1, yet is priced at $14,999, smack dab in the middle of the pricing of its predecessor and the VP-15S1.  A long-throw version is also available for slightly more money. Those looking for DLP projectors now have two outstanding choices from Marantz.  The question that will face most shoppers is whether or not the VP-11S2 is worth the $5,000 premium over the already excellent VP-15S1.  While that ultimate decision has to be made by you, ...
