Sunfire XT Series True Subwoofer Super Junior
Introduction Speakers have under gone huge leaps in evolution, from the once common rectangular box with one or more drivers on the front to multi-cabinet designs. Newer manufacturing techniques and materials have allowed unique shapes previously only dreamed of to become reality. The upsurge in flat panel displays and the huge increases in real estate values have energized the market for smaller, more ergonomically sensitive speakers. Audio guru Bob Carver is well aware of these new market factors and has created a very compelling new loudspeaker solution for real world systems that don’t want to compromise on old-world audiophile excellence. Carver is well known for making products that outperform their size. This goes for his amplifiers, which usually weigh a fraction of others in their class, to his legendary subwoofers that have redefined size and performance expectations, and now the Cinema Ribbons. Standing at just over eight inches high, these new speakers are designed to give ...

Sharp XV-Z20000U DLP Video Projector
Introduction Sharp has been at the forefront of LCD front-projection technology since the dawn of the technology. The company jumped into DLP once the first high-resolution 1280 x 720 pixel chips became available to manufacturers. Sharp’s first DLP projector, the XV-Z9000U, turned quite a few heads with its impressive picture quality back in 2001. The latest top of the line model, the XV-Z20000U, also a one-chip design, boasts the latest 1080p-resolution DLP chip, and promises again to be a head-turner. 1080p resolution came late to DLP display technology, as compared to the LCD category, which has had that vaunted high resolution for some time and consequently carries a fairly steep premium in price. At the moment, the least expensive 1080p one-chip DLP projectors start at around $10,000, whereas 1080p LCD and LCS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) projectors start at about $3,000 and go up from there. The Sharp XV-Z20000U definitely delivers the video goods with excellent ...

Sony KDS-R70XBR2 70-inch SXRD HDTV
Introduction I have always thought of a “home theater” as stereotypically consisting of a front projector like Sony’s Qualia 004 or even their new and affordable “pearl” projector and a large filmscreen. How else would you get an image big enough for a real theater experience? Sony’s new KDS-R70XBR2 with its 70-inch screen is a set that has changed the way I feel about the impact you can get from a relatively affordable rear projection HDTV. The ease of installation starts the romance. Being able to watch a big, bright HDTV with daylight peeking into the room only adds to the love affair. Then there is the price difference, which almost makes you want to get down on one knee and propose. Description It took two people and some care to place this monster HDTV, weighing in at 161 pounds and sized at 74.25 inches wide by 45.5 inches high and 24 inches deep, on ...

Sony VPL VW50
Introduction The performance increase of home video products over the past three years, paired with precipitous price drops, is nothing short of unprecedented. 50-inch HDTVs that only a few years ago cost $20,000 today cost less than $2,000. Never before have we seen video technology get so good so fast and for so little money. Companies like Vizio have gone from no-name brands to literally billion-dollar ventures today, providing consumers with access to HDTV video that can be the core of a truly respectable home theater at Costco prices. Not to be outdone, Sony has stepped into the fray of incredibly powerful video with their Pearl projector that at last fall’s CEDIA trade show threw the world of consumer video projectors on its ass. This $4,999 projector drew attention from reviewers, dealers and competitors alike with its bright image, 1080p resolution, slick aesthetic and amazingly low price tag. Before I get into the nitty gritty, I ...
