RBH MC-6CT Loudspeakers
Introduction RBH Sound, named after chief designer Roger B. Hassing (not to be confused with the late James B. Lansing) has recently risen up as a contender in the highly competitive US loudspeaker market with a lineup of high performance affordable music and theater speakers. RBH speakers are known for their use of aluminum drivers like those found on Velodyne and Monitor Audio speakers. RBH dresses up their speakers in ultra sexy colors and wood finishes not too far from what you’d expect from the super boutique, high end loudspeaker manufacturers such as Wilson and THIEL. The system I evaluated includes the MC-6T speakers and TS-12AP powered subwoofer priced at $1099 pair (for cherry or semi gloss white finishes, $999 in the black oak finish) and $799, respectively. My MC-6T and TS-12AP both came finished in a very high quality cherry wood veneer with removable, black grille covers. I was shocked when I opened ...

Rotel RCD 975 CD Player
Introduction It is easy to design a system that sounds great when you have lots of money to invest. You can pick from the most high end, most high performance products on the market with little regard for anything other than getting exactly the sound you want. Achieving this goal on a tight budget is a whole other story. Enter the Rotel RCD 975. Every good music and home theater system needs a good "front end." In Europe, investing the majority of your audio money into a front end is common, however in the US where bigger is better, we tend to opt for investing more funds into loudspeakers. The Rotel RCD 975 is a great compromise. At $750 (USD) the Rotel RCD 975 isn't cheap, but its performance is way above its price range. Technically the Rotel RCD 975 uses two continuous calibration digital to analog converters, one on each channel. Each DAC ...

Rotel RSX-965 Receiver
Introduction Just what we needed, another audio/video receiver. In a marketplace full of products with brand names such as Sony, Yamaha, Denon and the like – names that we are familiar with – names that give us that warm fuzzy feeling; what business does the $1,200.00 RSX-965 have jumping into this already crowded pool? Plenty. The RSX-965 is a five-channel audio/video receiver that carries a boatload of features. From ground zero; the unit offers a bruising 75 watts RMS per channel for all five channels that are driven into eight ohms with a frequency range of 20Hz - 20kHz with less than 0.005%THD. The power is fed by your choice of four audio signal formats; Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro-logic and two-channel stereo. These four choices can be manipulated to suit ones' taste by using the digital signal processing presets; Theater, Stadium, Hall effects, and one of my personal favorite TV watching modes: Dolby Stereo 3. ...

RCA DTC 100 HDTV Receiver
Introduction The RCA DTC100 receives, decodes and displays standard definition NTSC broadcasts from local and cable stations, plus all DTV formats, as well as DIRECTV satellite programming. Retailing for $ 649.00, the DTC100 provides a comprehensive array of audio and video outputs, serving a range of display devices from standard TVs to many high-definition display devices. RF, Composite, S-Video and 15-pin VGA video outputs are supplied, along with RCA-type connections for analog audio in addition to an optical (Toslink) discrete digital audio output (however, no COAX digital audio connection is included). The DTC100’s HD monitor output supports high-resolution video up to 1080i. To achieve this signal, the 15-pin D-subminiature connector is used to provide a component output (RGB) that is compatible with multi-sync displays. The horizontal resolution at the HD monitor output for standard definition digital broadcasts may be up to 720 pixels per line and, for high-definition broadcasts, can reach 1920 pixels per line. The ...

Richard Gray's Power Company 400s Power Conditioner
Introduction So often when we contemplate music and video playback systems, we think about their components, components such as amplifiers, preamplifiers, CD players and DACs, and let’s not forget cables. Then there are lists of accessories: racks, stands and dozens of other items that can aid in the pursuit of playback perfection. Rarely do we consider the word "power," although many of us know that there are significant advantages to improved power. For some reason, many think that bad power is somebody else’s problem. We continue to spend big bucks on equipment to improve the sound of our playback systems, while neglecting power. The problem with the average household’s power is that it is shared, in most cases, with many others, including your neighbors, their computers and appliances. These things cause noise in your power that will greatly reduce your system’s ability ...
