Wireworld Ultraviolet & AudioQuest Forest USB Cable Reviews
USB audio has been either all the rage, or a passing fad, depending on your perspective for the past few years in high end audio. Outputting audio from a computer via one of its USB ports to either an S/PDIF converter like the Musical Fidelity V-Link 192, or to a DAC with a buzzword friendly “asynchronous” USB input has become an officially approved audiophile connection. Many argued USB took a long time to come to the forefront as a high quality audio connection since it was designed for computer to peripheral (hard drives, printers, etc.) rather than for audio. But things have changed. Heaven forbid a manufacturer releases a source component, AV receiver, or DAC without USB connectivity. Can you say DOA?Since USB audio has gained wide acceptance, it was only a matter of time before "audiophile" grade USB cables ...

Weizhi PRS-6 Power Distributor Review
Ask audiophiles what the most difficult part of a system to control is, and many will probably answer the power supply. A few decades ago, such a response would be rare and likely viewed with great suspicion. Slowly, folks began accepting the premise that clean and consistent power was a logical first step toward higher fidelity. The problem was how to get it. In most households, the battle to share power never stops. Toasters and microwave ovens joust with clock radios and TVs and hair dryers and more, all putting demands on the AC power supply. Take a look at all the appliances and devices plugged into your outlets and you'll quickly understand why power conditioners and distributors were developed. Then consider that you share power with neighbors who have their own devices plugged into the grid and the problem ...

Western Digital TV Live Hub Review
You would be hard pressed to find a company that's consistently rolling out positive hardware revisions of its media players more than Western Digital.  Earlier this year, we took a look at the WD TV Live Media Player that added Netflix streaming into their hardware model.  But that player, and every player previous to it, lacked any type of internal storage to save all of your content rather than streaming it off your home network.  It always seemed odd that a hard drive manufacturer didn't delve into providing central storage for all your downloaded content.  Enter the Western Digital TV Live Hub.  Not only does it include a 1 Terabyte hard drive to store content, the WD TV Live Hub player has been upgraded to take advantage of HDMI 1.4, received an updated UI, can be used as a media ...

WD TV Live HD Media Player Review
In the current age of media consumption, movies and television are being utilized in vastly different methods than five years ago.  Nothing is more of a testament to the changes in how consumers are viewing their media than Western Digital’s TV Live HD Media Player.  Improving on their first player (the WD TV Digital Media Player), the new TV Live builds on the strong file support of the first model and adds a variety of networking improvements.When unpacking the unit, you will notice the small form factor of the TV Live is fairly identical to the previous model.  It also feels a touch lighter than the last one.  Different from the previous model, you won’t find composite red/yellow/white RCA jacks to output the audio and video, but you can still output to that format with the mini-jack output.  You will ...
