Onkyo NC-500 Net-Tunes Audio Network Receiver
Introduction Playing your MP3 files isn’t just for sketchy speakers and poorly developed free software on your computer any more. Sales of Apple’s iPod are through the roof and now a new category, the music server, is gaining popularity. Talk of the computer and your home theater being one and the same (AKA: convergence) has been going on for quite some time and, with the NC-500 Nettunes Audio Network Receiver, Onkyo has taken another step closer to making the personal computer a fundamental part of your home theater system. For $399 (or $499 with two D-N3XA 2-way bass reflex speakers), the Onkyo NC-500 Net-Tunes™ Audio Network Receiver gives you powerful access to audio files stored on your computer from a remote location in your home or office. It also provides enhanced support for Internet radio and allows you to listen to both WMA (Windows Media) and MP3-format Internet radio stations. An AM/FM tuner allows you ...

Onkyo TX-SR501 Receiver
Introduction Onkyo, a brand that has long been respected as one of the best mainstream Japanese audio manufacturers, offers powerful AV technology at an affordable price. The TX-SR501 is a six-channel receiver equipped for the most popular home theater and stereo formats: Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES, and Multi-Channel Audio inputs for SACD or DVD-Audio, all for the svelte price of $299. This is not a typo. The TX-SR501 immediately entices you with its black steel chassis and brushed aluminum faceplate, giving it a look that is easy on the eyes. Modest in size, the TX-SR501 stands five-and-seven-eighths inches tall, 17-and-one-eighth inches wide, and 14-13/16 inches deep. The sizable power supply in this receiver adds some noticeable weight, tipping the scales at just over 18 pounds. The front panel is well laid out, with sturdy buttons and a slightly resistive volume knob (flimsy volume knobs are a pet peeve of mine). The display is a modest ...

Onkyo TX-DS989 Version2 Receiver
Introduction Onkyo actually produces two separate lines of consumer audio equipment. Like Panasonic and Technics, Onkyo has an eponymous line and a higher-end line sold under the Integra name. But this should not give the impression that the regular Onkyo products are anything less than high quality – in fact, the TX-DS989, the top of the Onkyo receiver line at around $3,500, is an excellent component all round. Since the unit was originally reviewed in AudioRevolution in the fall of 2000, the 989 has lived up to its “future-proof” promise, initially with the addition of DTS-ES, Neo 6 and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding in 2001 and now with version 2 firmware and some hardware updates -- which are available to existing owners as well as being provided as standard on new units -- offering THX Ultra2 and DTS96/24 capability. At the heart of the TX-DS989 is a beefy seven-channel power amp offering up to 130 ...

Outlaw Audio ICBM-1 Integrated Controlled Bass Manager
Introduction A look at Outlaw Audio's website makes it appear that the company's avowed specialty is audiophile quality at mass-market prices. If the ICBM-1 bass management system is anything to go by, they’re good at it. The unit costs a mere $249 and does a very important job very well for those who need bass management, as many readers are. But before we get a look at the unit itself, let’s consider bass management and why you probably don’t have something like this unit already. Modern digital audio distribution systems like DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD offer six channels of audio, all of which are full range – they can go from DC to somewhere like half the sample rate. Even a regular DVD-Video disc can handle full range audio on five out of the six channels: the “.1” in a 5.1 system is the so-called “Low Frequency Effects” or LFE channel. In the ...

Onkyo TX-DS989 Receiver
Introduction Drawing off the concepts and technology developed in their critically acclaimed Integra Research series of components, Onkyo has produced the TX-DS989 A/V Receiver ($3,199.95). It combines a high performance 130 watts per channel amplifier (x7), a sophisticated AM/FM tuner and a state-of-the-art, infinitely upgradable digital processor. Boasting true 7.1 audio, the TX-DS989 was the first to go to market with THX Surround EX, which delivers an additional channel of surround. Requiring an extra set of speakers in the back of the listening area, the result is a more realistic 360-degree environment. The TX-DS989 provides amplification and speaker terminals for the extra left and right back surround speakers. Capable of attaining a dynamic range of 120dB with a virtually jitter-free output, the advanced 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converters (one for each channel) assure top-end performance on all existing digital sources, as well as the up-and-coming formats DVD-Audio and SACD. Additionally, the Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WART) employed by Onkyo guarantees ...
