manufacturer: Mark Levinson model: Sound System for the Lexus SC430 category: Feature Article review date: February 2001 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Mark Levinson Sound System for the Lexus SC430 Let’s face it, we spend far more of our lives in our cars than we do parked in front of our high-end music and theater systems. I commute from West Hollywood Hills to Century City. It’s a mere four miles from my home to my office, but it can take anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on traffic variables. I do not bitch about the time I spend driving to work, because I crank tunes at deafening volumes and rev my RPMs to the limit whenever logistically possible. The tactile and visual experience of driving a sports car creates an even more heightened emotional experienced when listening to music.

Marantz SR8001 Receiver
Introduction Receivers are a tough market, given the massive changes in home theatres these days. What was red hot in receivers a few years ago – DVI comes to mind – is already dated technology. Receiver makers have fought tooth and nail to keep up with the ever-changing market and the subject of this review, the Marantz SR8001 A/V receiver, displays the fruits of these efforts. For over 50 years, Marantz has been producing some of the finest audio gear on the planet and this receiver is currently the best they make. Offering all the power, flexibility and performance you could want and a new, shallower cabinet size, which enables this receiver to fit into small places more easily, the Marantz SR 8001 is designed to be the center of a whole home audio/visual system. This receiver offers tons of features, all for a retail price of $1999.99. The Marantz SR8001 offers four-to-two HDMI ...

Meridian 300 Series In-wall Loudspeaker System
Introduction When it came time to finally design and implement my new reference home theater, there were two things I knew I had to have. First was the ability to easily integrate and audition various components of all types without costly professional installation fees or outside programming. Second was for my reference system to feature only in-wall speakers. I have been a fan of in-walls (and on-walls, for that matter) for a long time now and, as technology has progressed, so has the quality of their sound. While nearly every speaker manufacturer has some sort of in-wall or on-wall line of products, finding ones that are truly reference grade can be a bit more daunting. I looked high and low during my search and compiled a list of potential candidates that would, I hoped, fit my needs. I met with and/or demoed the top offerings from RBH, Paradigm, Definitive, PSB and Meridian. While RBH, Paradigm, ...

Mitsubishi HC5000 LCD Video Projector
Introduction It has been raining 1080p HDTVs in all the different display categories, and the front-projection arena has a slew of new high-resolution models at surprisingly aggressive price points for consumers to choose from. There are three display technologies dominating front projection. They are LCD, LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon), which is a derivative of LCD, and DLP (Digital Light Processing). Unlike most manufacturers, Mitsubishi is betting on two horses in this race, as they currently make and sell both LCD and DLP front projectors. Their recently introduced HC5000 is the company’s first 1080p front projector. A three-panel LCD projector, the HC5000 is Mitsubishi’s flagship model at the time of this review. There is no display technology where this vaunted high resolution can be appreciated more then with front-projection systems where we can create truly large cinematic viewing experiences in the home. Design Modest and basic are the first two words that come to mind when I contemplate ...

Not a company to rest on its laurels, Monster’s vast portfolio of products will now include power amplifiers to go along with a robust offering of cables, accessories, furniture, speakers and beyond.
