Roku XDS Media Player Review
We have reviewed a vast amount of media players over the last year and a half, but nothing more dependent on streaming access than the Roku XDS.  Over the years, Roku has consistently positioned itself as a leader in building inexpensive media players that have lead many consumers down the path of ending dependence on expensive cable or satellite television service.  Competition has risen up from companies like Western Digital and Apple, but Roku continues to respond with players that range from $59.99 to $99.99.  These players vary in capability, but even the most inexpensive player (the Roku HD) provides 720p video, HDMI and built-in Wi-Fi.  The next step up is the Roku XD if the consumer wants 1080p playback and Wireless-N capability (assuming their router supports it).  The subject of this review is the Roku XDS.  The XDS includes ...

Rogue Audio Ares Vacuum Tube Phono Preamplifier Review
In 1981, long-time British rockers The Kinks released an album titled Give The People What They Want, a set of songs that gave them their first bona fide hit in several years, “Destroyer.” Call it timing or prescience, the music resonated and perhaps was what the people did want after all. Predicting such events in the music industry is nearly impossible, but the LP's title is good advice for anyone looking to attract an audience – and ultimately buyers – of his/her wares. Its advice Rogue Audio took to heart when designing the Ares, the company's first vacuum tube phono preamplifier. Rogue president and chief engineer Mark O'Brien related, “It was a real labor of love for me. I had a lot of feedback from vinyl lovers. Ultimately, we wanted to build an all-tube phono stage that had adjustable output, ...

About a month ago I set out to record one of my favorite bands, The Clientele, from the soundboard, during a local club gig.  I brought my Sharp Minidisc recorderand had the sound man give me a line out, and I was ready to go. Or so I thought. To my horror, when I got home, I found out the minidisc had failed and the audio was fragmented and distorted. I decided I was done with optical recording media. I then set out to find the best cost effective solution for recording live events and archiving old analog recordings from cassettes and reel to reel tapes. There are a number of solutions out there, from pricey, pro level broadcast quality gear, to hand held, lightweight gadgets that use flash memory or small internal hard drives.The history of home base recording ...

Runco 3Dimension D-73d 3D Projection System Preview
Luxury display manufacturer Runco wants to bring the 3D revolution to your home cinema.  Shipping with the Runco's 3Dimension Processor and HDH4 Controller, the D-73d Projector is a passive glasses 3D system with a 16x9 screen width recommendation between 72 and 100 inches (in 2D, recommended jumps up to 132 inches with a maximum of 200).  It offers viewers a full 1080p native resolution and is ISF Certified for calibration.Utilizing their proprietary Constant Stereoscopic Video (CSV) architecture, the D-73d projects left eye and right eye images simultaneously leaving the polarized lenses to filter the proper material for each eye.  Runco feels passive glasses are less problematic than active shutter glasses, which need batteries and can suffer from image studder and/or frame rate sync issues.  The Runco 3Dimension Processor is also the first home theatre processer to feature the licensed technology ...

Rogue Audio Atlas Magnum Power Amplifier Review
I've heard many audiophiles complain that there are not enough affordable, excellent sounding and well made components manufactuered in the United States anymore. Yes, it is true that many European and American designers have been contracting out their manufacturing to Asia to cut costs and keep prices within reach of ordinary hifi nuts.  And, yes, there are some American based manufacturers who make very fine gear, but priced for the Maserati crowd.  Yet, to make a blanket statement concerning the demise of fairly priced American products is unfounded, in my opinion. Rogue Audio is one such company that has been making very fairly priced, wonderfully built and well reviewed components since 1996. They specialize in tubed preamplifiers and amplifiers. Rogue products range in price from $995 for the Metis preamplifier to $9995 for the powerhouse Apollo mono block amplifiers. It ...
