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 ...

Toshiba 46RF350U LCD HDTV
The Basics: The 46RF350U is one of the first LCDs to sport Toshiba’s Super Narrow Bezel design. As the name suggests, this design minimizes the amount of visible frame surrounding the 46-inch screen. Less than an inch of high-gloss-black frame is visible around the screen’s edges, and a thin SoundStrip 2 speaker bar runs discreetly along the bottom panel. The TV uses Toshiba’s PixelPure 3G 14-bit processing and CineSpeed 10-bit LCD panel, and it has several advanced picture controls: an adjustable backlight, direct color-temperature adjustment to the TV’s blue/green drive and a ColorMaster system that allows for precise tweaking of the primary and secondary color points. The 46RF350U has three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, and it offers automatic aspect ratio detection and numerous aspect ratio options, including a Native mode to display 1080i/1080p images with no overscan. The Upside: Reports on ...

Toshiba HD-A35 HD DVD Player
Introduction Not since VHS vs. Beta has an AV format war been the source of so much turmoil for consumers. More so than SACD vs. DVD-Audio, HD DVD vs. Blu-ray has sparked numerous debates around the water cooler, caused much consumer confusion and even managed to shut down portions of one of the Internet’s largest consumer electronics forum because of – get this – death threats. That’s right, death threats. While consumers flock to stores in droves for HDTVs, it has only been in recent weeks, with radical price drops on players, that consumers are looking toward HD players to actually feed their new HDTVs with beaming, beautiful video content. Consider this review round three. I recently reviewed the Toshiba HD-A20 and raved about it, proclaiming it to be the best HD DVD player on the market at the time. The review ...

manufacturer: Transparent Audio category: Feature Article review date: August 2000 reviewed by: Bryan Southard An Exercise in the State of the Art at Transparent Audio Last month when on a business trip to a suburb of Boston, I took the better part of a day to visit Transparent Audio in Saco, Maine. Transparent had offered a tour of their state-of-the-art facility the next time I happened to be on the East Coast, so once plans to travel to the New England area were confirmed, I set up a visit. This was a pleasure trip, not business, and a chance to play in a room rumored to be one of the best listening facilities in the world, an opportunity I couldn't resist.
