Even if the Black Diamond III was an absolutely terrible turntable with no positive audio qualities whatsoever, it would be worth owning for the look.  This thing is gorgeous.  It's like something you'd see on display in a home, but in that room where you're not allowed to wear shoes or touch anything. Of course, there's more to the newest iteration of the Black Diamond than just the look. Walker found a way to lower the amount of pressure exerted which not only keeps components lasting longer but improved the audio quality.

There are plenty of ways to get audio from one room in your home to another.  You can wire for sound in every room or pick up a wireless audio system, but there are downsides and complications to both. The latest product from Aperion gives you the freedom of wireless audio and doesn't make you replace your audio components to do so.

Sherbourn has announced a pair of new home theater components, both designed to help drive audio through your system. The PA-7350 is an amplifier that Sherbourn describes as "reference quality."  It's capable of driving seven channels at 350 watts per channel and offers, in addition to the usual ins and outs, balanced XLR outputs.  It offers a Class H power supply with Sherbourn's Soft Switch tech.  The release date and price are yet to be announced.

The latest amp from Marantz is an upgrade to their well received PM6003. Along with minor improvements and tweaks, the 6004 features one big change. Unlike former amps from the company, the PM6004 doesn't have a single amplifier integration circuit.  Both the pre-amplification and power amplification sections use their own discrete components.  Marantz says that this is not only a performance increase, but a way for the company to refine the sound even more on an individual basis.

JVC isn't messing around - they've announced five new 3D projectors that range from the easily affordable to the expensive.  The two most high-end of this new set of projectors is capable of displaying resolutions up to 4K. The DLA-X30 is the most basic model in the bunch, offering support for 3D content, a 1080p resolution and a 50,000:1 contrast ratio for $3,499.  Stepping up to $4,995 gets you the ISF certified DLA-RS4800 that adds, among other things, 2D to 3D conversion. JVC's DLA-F110E is designed for custom installations and high-end conference rooms alike.  It offers 1,700 lumens brightness and a contrast ratio of 30,000:1.  It gives you the option of IP control and the ability to be installed horizontally or vertically for setups where space is tight. You can pick it up this month for $7,495.

The folks at Vivitek like to go multi-purpose with their projectors and the new D963 is no exception.  It's made to work nicely in home theaters and office settings alike and offers a 3000:1 contrast, 4500 lumens brightness and a 1080p resolution. The H1086-3D, on the other hand, is made for home theaters exclusively.  It's a 3D projector that can take your DVD and Blu-ray content - anything that comes in through HDMI - and turn it from 2D to 3D. It's also compatible with 3D Blu-ray players and 3D television as you might imagine.

If you've been waiting for some new tech before you jump into a new projector, Sony has something that may interest you.  It packs all the good stuff you've been waiting for and then some. The most interesting feature of the VPL-VW1000ES projector is, of course, the 4K capability.  Don't have a 4K source?  Sony's new projector will upscale anything you feed it, even SD sources.  That company says that you'll even experience dramatic improvements in the look of HD content.
