Mitsubishi LT-46144 LCD HDTV
The Basics: Mitsubishi’s 144 Series of 1080p LCDs is a step down from the top-of-the-line 244/Diamond Series, yet it contains a lot of the same features and technologies. Like the higher-end models, this 46-inch TV uses Mitsubishi’s Smooth 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur. On the connection end, this model doesn’t have the CableCARD slot or RS-232 port found in the 244 Series and it sports one less HDMI connection. You still get three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, plus three component video inputs (including one on the side panel), dual RF inputs to access the internal tuners and a USB port for viewing digital photos. The LT-46144 has a solid but not extensive amount of advanced picture adjustments, including an adjustable backlight and a PerfectColor feature that lets you ...

Mitsubishi LT-40134 LCD HDTV
The Basics: The LT-40134 is considered a mid-level model in Mitsubishi’s LCD line because it does not feature Smooth120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120 Hz to reduce motion blur. However, its connections, technologies and features are otherwise similar to the higher-end 144 and 244/Diamond Series. The generous connection panel includes four HDMI and three component video inputs, with one of each on the side panel for easy access. The HDMI inputs accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24. You also get dual RF inputs to access the internal tuners and a USB port for viewing digital photos. This model does not have the CableCARD slot found on the Diamond Series, but it does have the TV Guide Daily program guide.

MartinLogan Purity Loudspeakers
Introduction I could bore you with a brief summery about the whos and whys surrounding the electrostatic loudspeaker manufacturer MartinLogan, but truthfully, if you consider yourself a fan of high-end audio, then the MartinLogan story is among the most well-known in the business. So instead I’ll lead with this: I have in my possession the coolest iPod speakers ever dreamed of. There has been a lot of to-do over the mighty MP3 player from Apple, as AV manufacturers clamor to jump aboard the train, manufacturing countless accessories and glorified clock radios in a relentless quest to cash in on the seemingly endless success of the iPod. After a recent visit to my local Apple Store, several high-end companies were displaying products that utilize or feature the iPod, hoping to squeeze an ounce of high fidelity out of the otherwise personal player. ...

Mitsubishi Diamond Series WD-57833 DLP HDTV
Introduction Reports of RPTV's death have been greatly exaggerated. Okay, maybe not greatly. How about mildly exaggerated? Toshiba, Hitachi, and (most surprising) Sony have all announced that they are abandoning RPTV production. Last September, IDC predicted that RPTV sales would drop from 2.5 million units in 2006 to as few as 30,000 units in 2011, and that was before Sony's announcement. This expected decline is due to the fact that the price of large-screen flat-panel TVs continues to drop, chipping away at the RPTV's biggest selling point: You get more screen size for less money. Indeed, the future may be grim for rear-pro HDTVs, but 2011 is still several years away. Let's talk about the here and now. Right here, right now, Samsung, and Mitsubishi are still committed to their respective rear-pro technologies. As much as flat-panel pricing has fallen, plasma ...

Marantz VP-15S1 DLP Projector
Introduction I was a little nervous when I learned that I would be reviewing Marantz’s new VP-15S1 projector. I know this sounds a little odd, especially when you consider that the staff at and I have been overwhelmingly impressed with Marantz’s past front-projection video projectors. I even bought the last Marantz projector I reviewed, the VP-11S1, which retailed for $20,000. While I know that video gear is always getting better and cheaper, I was surprised to learn that, within a single year, Marantz’s VP-15S1 was being introduced at half the price ($9,999) with allegedly 90 percent of the performance. Could this be true? When I received the VP-15S1, I was not surprised to find that it physically looked very similar to the VP-11S1 and the VP-12 series before that. The biggest external difference I noted between the VP-15S1 and the VP-11S1 ...
