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 AVRev.com 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 ...

McIntosh MC207 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction There are some products and/or brands that seemingly need no introduction. McIntosh is at the top of the list. Throughout the 1970s, McIntosh was the iconic symbol of all things good and high-end when it came to two-channel music. Today, little has changed with the brand and their loyal customers. Well, at least on the surface, as no other brand has deviated less from its original appearance than McIntosh, with their signature watt meters glowing pale blue, and large, almost aircraft-style control knobs. It’s enough to make a man want to don a smoking jacket and pipe, yet even in today’s iPod world, McIntosh is supremely retro-cool. While McIntosh is still dedicated to the two-channel enthusiast, they have ventured into the multi-channel audio and home theater markets as well, hence my interest in the MC207 seven-channel amplifier reviewed here. Clad ...

manufacturer: Mark Levinson model: Lexus GX470 with Mark Levinson Sound System category: Feature Article review date: April 2003 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Lexus GX470 with Mark Levinson Sound System Introduction When you think about it, where better to listen to music or even movies than in your car? Lexus has teamed up with Harman, the parent company of the Mark Levinson brand, to provide ultra-premium sound systems in many of their better cars and SUVs. Lexus’ goal is to bring the luxuries found in the most elegant living rooms directly to the driver’s seat. This includes a high-performance audio system, touch-screen system control, DVD-Video movies for front and/or rear viewing, wireless headphones, and much more. These features are optional in all models but the SC coup in which they are included.

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.
