Orb TV VP-1 Review
The rapid growth of the smart phone market has heavily influenced design choices and device compatibility in the home theater realm, both with audio and video components.  For instance, you couldn’t go more than a few steps at CES 2011 without seeing another device that was utilizing Apple’s Airplay functionality for streaming media.  There are devices being released with molded ports for iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches and the barrage of Android phones.   In addition, the home theater television is getting smarter and providing access to a wider variety of web content like Netflix, Hulu and other downloadable video services.  If you don’t want to upgrade to that net connected TV yet, there are a barrage of step-top boxes and Blu-ray players that can perform the same function.  Beyond that, there are devices like the Orb TV VP-1.   The WP-1 is ...

Optoma 3D-XL Projector Adapter Preview
For 3D lovers who already own a legacy 720p 3D-ready DLP video projector such as Optoma's HD67, which is incompatible with the newer 3D Blu-ray spec, Optoma has a cheap solution to get you connected to 1080p 3D sources.The new 3D-XL Projector Adapter is the first converter box that allows 720p 3D projectors play 1080p 3D Blu-ray discs, 3D PS3 console games, and 3D broadcast content.  It works by accepting 1.4a HDMI signals output by 1080p 3D players and down converting it to a 1.3 HDMI signal that current 720p 3D DLP projectors can display.  The catch for the 3D-XL is that these legacy projectors must be those that operate at 120Hz refresh rates.The 3D-XL has two HDMI 1.4a inputs, 1 USB port and 1 RS232 port, and can accept common global video inputs and video formats up to 1080p ...

Oppo BDP-83 Special Edition Blu-ray Player Review
The universal player market has long been dominated by a couple different categories.  A good percentage of the universal players are entry level and reside in our home computers.  Then there are the reference players like the Lexicon BD-30 and the Denon DVD-A1UDCI at $3500 and $4500 respectfully. The industry has long needed a high performing intermediate line for those of us that have nice theater systems but find $3500 for a universal player excessive.   For this reason, I was anxious to see if the Oppo BDP-83 Special Edition could fit this bill.At $899, the Oppo BDP-83 Special Edition is the big brother to the BDP-83 and possesses higher performance features.  Among other features, the Special Edition comes with a completely new analog stage which provides better analog audio performance.  Additionally the Special Edition has a much improved power supply ...

Opera Consonance LP 6.1 Turntable and T988 Tonearm Review
Turntables are back. Actually, they never really went away, but during the dark decade of 1990 when compact discs threatened to make vinyl records extinct, it sure seemed so. Although we're living in the age of digital downloads, vinyl lovers have a bounty of spoils to satisfy their analog Jones. There is a constant flow of LPs being reissued by labels such as Rhino, and new turntables and accessories make 2010 a superb time to get into or rediscover vinyl. At one time, the Japanese held a significant share of the turntable – and hi-fi – market, with brands such as Technics and Denon enjoying widespread popularity across the U.S. Now, China has moved into high-end audio, and some of the greatest bargains are coming from The People's Republic. And the build quality can be very good. I've had great success with ...

Optoma HD20 DLP Projector Review
With the roll out of Optoma’s HD20 DLP home projector last year, the reality of a 1080p projector lower than $1000 was finally realized.  As Blu-ray is rapidly growing in popularity, there’s no reason that home theater gurus with growing collections of stunning 1080p transfers need to hold off on replacing that old 720p projector.  The Optoma HD20 attempts to meet that need with 1080p output, 4000:1 contrast, and 1700 ANSI lumens.   The retail MSRP of the unit is $999.99 and can be found slightly cheaper around the web. DesignThe design of the HD20 has a very small footprint, which makes it useful as a somewhat mobile projector.  The white body has a sleek finish with silver trim. It can get dusty if positioned on a coffee table and the white finish obviously makes that more visible.  The front grill ...
