Monday, 28 September 2009 ,  Written by Daniel Hirshleifer
Could you imagine a world without The Beatles? Life would be drastically different if it weren't for the enduring music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. The Fab Four changed the face of popular music as we know it, and the effects can still be felt today. However, despite their ubiquitous popularity, access to their music has been strangely guarded. Up until recently (September 9th, 2009, to be exact), the only way to get their albums on CD was to buy old copies from 1987, devoid of fine sonic detail, and many mixed in stereo when The Beatles intended them to be mono. Their songs still cannot be found on any MP3 download service, and, by extension, the group was MIA from any rhythm game, such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero.But that all changed when ...

Transparent PowerWave 10 Power Conditioner
The BasicsEssential to sensitive electrical equipment, power conditioners like the Transparent PowerWave 10 Power Conditioner delivers “clean” AC power for both personal and business use. Although sporting a minimalist design with a sleek curved form, the PowerWave 10 Power Conditioner is built with a solid, aluminum body. The PowerWave 10 provides a high-level of performance at a suggested retail price of $1,695. The PowerWave 10 is very similar in looks to the smaller PowerWave 8. However, looks are where the comparison ends since the PowerWave 10’s powerful 10 high-current, grounded and noise-filtering surge-protected outlets provide so much more than its predecessors. In addition, you will find it can create better isolation with its five filtered outlet banks. These features are 100% unique in the current market for home theater power conditioners and sound systems. Furthermore, you will find features like ...

Toshiba 52XF550 LCD HDTV
Introduction Over the past two years, Toshiba has really elevated its LCD game to compete in the higher-end realm with companies like Sony and Samsung. I was quite impressed with last year’s high-end 52LX177, a 120Hz 1080p model whose performance rivaled that of pricier 120Hz models on the market. This year’s follow-up, the 52XF550, boasts a new implementation of the company’s ClearFrame 120Hz technology and incorporates the Super Narrow Bezel cabinet design. Yet its $3,299.99 MSRP still puts it the lower end of the price spectrum for a 120Hz LCD. Naturally, I was anxious to get my hands on this new TV to see if Toshiba could again prove itself a formidable competitor in the 120Hz category. Set-up The goal of the Super Narrow Bezel cabinet design is to put less frame around the screen to draw more attention to the image ...

Transparent PowerWave 8 Surge Protector
Introduction Transparent Audio’s cables are the making of an audiophile dream. While I have been a customer for many years now, there is one area of Transparent’s product line that I have not yet bought into: AC power. I believe in power and power cables, but I have never been able to bring myself to justify spending gobs of money on what I can only view as thicker shrink-wrapping. I get asked about power a lot, and many products come my way that promise the moon but never deliver even Earth orbit. So when Josh Clark, Transparent’s chief product designer, called me in regard to their power products, I was a bit apprehensive, but still willing to give it a shot. Unlike other power products and companies, Josh simply asked that I play around with it and see what I think. ...

Toshiba Cinema Series 52LX177 LCD HDTV
The Basics: The Cinema Series designates Toshiba’s highest-end offerings, and the LX moniker represents the 2007 line. This 52-inch, 1080p model incorporates Toshiba’s most advanced technologies and features. First of all, it offers 120Hz technology, in which the TV doubles the frame rate from 60 to 120Hz. Toshiba’s implementation has two elements: ClearFrame addresses general motion blur and renders smoother movement, while Film Stabilization specifically addresses judder in film sources. Both of these elements can be turned on or off. Other features include the use of Toshiba’s PixelPure 3G 14-bit processing and CineSpeed 10-bit LCD panel, plus a host of advanced image adjustments. That includes an adjustable backlight, direct adjustments to the TV’s blue/green drive and a ColorMaster Pro system that allows for precise tweaking of the primary and secondary color points. The 52LX177 sports three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24 ...
