    Orb Audio People's Choice System Review

    Aug 15 2013 04:57 AM | Eben Atwater in Equipment Reviews

    What Orb sells is designed, manufactured and assembled here in the US: I don't know about you, but that sure does make a difference to me.

    Axiom Audio Epic 80 5.1 Channel Home Theater System Review

    May 15 2013 07:16 AM | Dave Upton in Equipment Reviews

    In the small but innovative world of Internet direct audio manufacturers, Canadian manufacturer Axiom Audio has been steady and consistent presence in a rather tumultuous industry. In 1980 Axiom Audio was born and by 1981 had released its first product. Founder Ian Colquhoun joined Canada’s National Research Council project with the iconic Dr. Floyd Toole, their focus on research aiming to standardize loudspeaker measurement – methodologies that are widely used today. By 1986 Axiom had released its second speaker and had garnered its first award. Since then, Axiom has grown and evolved but maintains the same focus on quality, customer service and audio purity that it has since its inception.

    Ceton InfiniTV6-ETH Network Cable Card Adapter Review

    May 14 2013 10:46 AM | mattCR in Equipment Reviews

    From the beginning, I've followed Ceton. I received one of the very first InfiniTV4, in the first batch, as soon as they had them. I participated in the Echo and App Betas. And from the beginning, I loved the direction that Ceton was taking. Ceton was bringing real life to the cable card in Windows Media Center, and allowing us to do things that just we always wanted.. but Microsoft and others never pushed. ATI had their 2-Tuner external USB Cable Card device, but outside of being clunky it was nearly ungettable; you had to acquire it through specific sources and it's tuning capabilities were rather poor.

    Panasonic TC-P55ST60 3D Plasma HTF Equipment Review

    May 13 2013 07:19 AM | mattCR in Equipment Reviews

    I’ve spent a lot of time this year focusing on our new theater room. In putting together that room, I wanted the best that I could get.. within reason, and I wanted to be able to have a theater that really brought the movie experience home. As we worked to build that room, I realized – with a little prodding – that I spend more than my fair share of time watching TV in our bedroom, and the 4+ year old Samsung 46” LCD we were using could use a refresh too.

    One of the decisions to make really revolves around how much money you really want to spend for what kind of quality. There is no doubt that cheap LCD big screens are available everywhere – no name brands with mixed quality. I wanted to get the highest quality possible at the best bang for the buck.

    Anthem AV – a sister company of Paradigm is well known for their high-end AV receivers, amplifiers and processors. Having not reviewed a high-end dedicated AV processor solution in the recent past, I was eager to see what the $6,499 MSRP AVM 50v 3D could do.
