Runco Crystal Portfolio CX-52HD LCD HDTV
The Basics: Runco recently added 52- and 57-inch models to their Crystal Portfolio LCD lineup, which is sold exclusively through custom-installation channels. This 52-inch, 1080p LCD forgoes Runco’s common two-piece design (with a monitor and outboard controller) and incorporates the connection panel and processing element into the LCD itself, along with an NTSC/ATSC tuner that makes this a true television. Features include the use of Runco’s ViViX processing to scale all sources to the panel’s 1080p resolution, a manual adjustable backlight, an Auto Backlight feature that adjusts the light output automatically based on the room’s lighting conditions, an ISF calibration mode that allows your installer to calibrate the image for daytime and nighttime viewing, advanced PIP functions and four aspect ratio options (4:3, Letterbox, Anamorphic and VirtualWide). There is no native aspect ratio mode to present 1080i/1080p images with zero overscan. ...

Runco PlasmaWall XP-103DHD Plasma HDTV
The Basics: For the person who has 103 diagonal inches of wall space and a wad of cash burning a hole in a pocket, the 103-inch XP-103DHD is the pinnacle of Runco’s plasma lineup. This is a two-piece system that consists of the 103-inch plasma monitor, which does not contain any TV tuners, and a separate DHD controller that houses the connection panel and video processing. The DHD controller uses Runco’s ViViX II processing to scale all sources to the panel’s 1080p resolution. Features include 16-bit processing and advanced ISF calibration modes that your installer can configure for both daytime and nighttime viewing. The system has five aspect ratio options (16:9, 4:3, Letterbox, Cinema, and VirtualWide), as well as an Input Position menu that allows you to fine-tune the image’s horizontal/vertical position, height, width and overscan (from one to 10 percent; there ...

Revel Ultima2 Speaker System (Salon2/Gem2/Voice2)
Introduction Over the last decade, Revel has established itself as one of the leading researchers of psychoacoustic science and innovators of high-performance loudspeakers. Positioned within the Harman Specialty Group, a subsidiary of the massive Harman International organization, Revel was conceived as the crown jewel of Harman's high-end consumer loudspeaker companies. By pooling resources from Harman, Revel has had the luxury of utilizing some of the world's most technically advanced engineering teams and sophisticated testing facilities to accomplish their objectives. The original Ultima loudspeaker system has been praised by the press and public alike for its faithful sound reproduction and cutting edge technology. Revel has upped the ante by recently releasing the new replacement for the original series, aptly named Ultima2. Having used the original Salons, Voices and S30s as my reference multi-channel system for several years, I was eager to experience ...

RBH T-30LSE Loudspeakers
Introduction RBH Sound is a rapidly growing, ultra-high-performance speaker manufacturer, celebrating their 30-year anniversary with the release of their most ambitious speaker to date, the T-30LSE. The T-30LSE is a limited edition flagship model with only 100 pairs being made. At $15,000, the T-30LSEs are a serious investment, but upon closer scrutiny, they are quite reasonably priced when compared to the physically large flagship models of some other high-end loudspeaker brands. When I look at the T-30LSE, it brings to mind Revel’s new Salons, Wilson’s MAXX and B&W’s 802d loudspeakers, all of which come with a far larger price tag. I have long appreciated the innovation and craftsmanship I have seen in RBH Sound’s products. For more information on RBH’s history, I refer you to my article on RBH’s T-2P speaker system, which is at first glance similar to the T-30LSEs reviewed here. Both models are large, full-range speakers with similar driver arrangements. However, that is where ...

Radiient Technologies Elara Compact 5 Speaker System
Introduction We’ve all sat and drooled over the pages of the latest industry mag at the sights and specifications of some master designer’s latest Herculean, not to mention expensive, efforts in speaker design. And why shouldn’t we? Often, these products represent what is the pinnacle of loudspeaker design, and while no trip to Everest is free, there are other mountains worth climbing, which are rewarding in their own right. Enter companies like Radiient and their new line, or should I say line-up, of speakers, starting with the Elara compact five-speaker system. Founded by David Buuck, formerly of DVDO, and Jano Banks, the co-creator of HDMI, Radiient is out to prove that great sound and quality craftsmanship don’t necessarily have to come at a steep price. In fact, they’re out to change the way you look at, listen to and buy speakers altogether. This is why you’ll only find their products sold direct through their website, ...
