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. ...

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 ...

Revel Ultima Studio Loudspeakers
Introduction By the strained look on the face of the delivery person as he wheeled the Revel Ultima Studio’s into my room, I could tell I was clearly in for a workout setting up these speakers. After he finished chuckling at my suggestion that he lend a hand and help me unpack and position the speakers, the delivery man was off. Before me sat two boxes that I could hardly budge. The unpacking instructions indicate that two strong people should perform the task of unpacking and set-up; ideally, these are instructions that ought to be followed. Revel is the latest addition to the Madrigal Audio Group, owned by Harman International. Revel’s mission when founded in 1996 was to redefine the state of the art in loudspeaker design. With the resources of a NYSE-financed parent company, as well as some of the most advanced loudspeaker driver, cabinet and assembly know-how from sister companies like JBL and ...
