Totem Dreamcatcher Review
One of the biggest challenges a speaker designer has is making a very compact, low mass speaker sound lifelike.  There have been a number of notable “book shelf” designs, like the Rogers LS3/5a and its variants, the Proac Tablette, and the Paradigm Atom, among many others.  A successful execution of such a speaker certainly shows off the designer's skill. The fact is, that mini monitors are valid designs in that many music lovers are relegated to smaller spaces, and don’t require, nor can they accommodate, full range speakers.Totem Acoustic is based in Montreal, Canada. The company was founded in 1987, and makes a complete line of well reviewed loudspeakers ranging from in wall to full range floor standers.  I had heard much about Totem products, but up until recently I have not had an opportunity to spend any time with ...

The New Frontier: High End Computer Audio, and USB DACs
What a difference a decade makes. Ten years ago downloading an MP3 file of an average length pop song would hog up tons of bandwidth and test the patience of a saint. Fast forward and today downloading  or streaming uncompressed, feature length films, full CDs, and huge graphic files are as common place as sending emails. Modern Internet bandwidth has created a new culture, one where massive file transfers, real time video, and wireless hot spots are part of daily life. But there have been other developments that have also changed the way we go about managing our media. Data storage has become affordable, and shockingly so. A 1TB USB external hard drive can be found at most electronics stores and e-tailers like Amazon for under a $100, with prices continuing to drop due to fierce competition and innovation. ...

Thiel CS3.7 Floorstanding Loudspeaker Review
The Thiel CS3.7, when introduced in 2007, was the crowning achievement by the late, great, Jim Thiel. The flagship floor stander was the culmination of many years of research, and a series of upgrades and refinements of previous models. It has been universally praised by those who have heard it a hifi trade shows, and by professional reviewers alike. Some of the best ears in the business have claimed the CS3.7 offered remarkable performance that only fell short when compared to the very, very best, and stratospherically priced loudspeakers. The Thiel CS3.7 is currently priced at just about $13,000, depending on finish. which dear readers, is less than a pair of Nordost, MIT, Synergistic Research, or Transparent flagship interconnects.   The CS3.7 were designed and built at their facility in Lexington, KY. As every review of a Thiel speaker is obligated ...

The Top Five TVs of CES 2011
Another Consumer Electronics Show has come and gone and we’re left waiting patiently – or not so patiently – for all the new TV we saw at the show to finally be released.  Just what TVs are those?  We’re glad you asked.#5 - Sony XBR-55HX929The list starts off with one of the biggest names in TVs, Blu-ray players and just about everything else electronic to boot.  Sony brought plenty to the show, including the fantastic XBR-55HX929. As we've come to expect from high-end televisions, the 929 offers great performance while in 2D and in 3D.  It offers LED backlighting, integrated Wi-Fi and Bravia Internet Video, but its biggest features are those that aren't as obvious.One feature that I'm happy to see on the new line of Sony TVs is the inclusion of Corning Gorilla Glass.  Sony says there are benefits ...
