This is a speaker the size of a small shoebox. If space or budget is an issue, we think you’ll be hard-pressed to find something that sounds this good in such a small package. Of course, there are bigger all-in-one speakers that can match or surpass it in terms of pure energy, but we have never seen anything this size that can provide such a rich, full sound.read more
The general presentation of the Pre Box S2 Digital is very neutral with just a slight hint of lean — but that is ever so slight. We listened to it for over 4 hours straight using both MQA and non-MQA and never had any sense of listening fatigue at all, which is a great sign. It truly is a very musical unit. When you have deep bass tracks they hit with a ton of impact and a clarity to the bass that we have never heard on a $400 DAC.read more
This year, Sony changed the game with the introduction of three new 4K front projectors! All three raise the bar for performance at their price-points, making some great technology more attainable than it’s ever been before. If you are considering building a custom home theater or media room in your home, or if you already have one and are ready to upgrade your HD projector to 4K, you should really consider these Sony models.
Let’s walk through four of the most popular models, discussing which technologies they share as well as the benefits as you move up the line.
Today’s review will focus on ELAC’s new integrated amplifier, the ELAC EA101EQ-G. At first glance, the EA101 looks like a typical small integrated amp — not uncommon these days, as we’ve seen a huge resurgence over the last few years of people wanting better quality audio systems utilizing smaller and simpler form factors.
This category has a lot of choices and is very competitive, so if you didn’t dig into the EA101, you might not realize just how much it has going for it.read more
Whether the Deepblue3 is going to be your first major upgrade from the world of $50 Bluetooth speakers, or it may be a secondary system for an office, kitchen or back porch — you won’t be disappointed.
This is an extremely popular category with more options than we can count right now, but if you’re thinking of anything even close to this price, you should give the Deepblue3 a listen.read more
If you’re a movie lover, you’ve probably noticed that when you play your favorite Blu-ray or streaming movie, you will usually have black bars at the top and bottom. We know that this can be confusing, so we’re going to explain why this is happening as well as some things to try that may even fix the issue, depending on your individual system and situation.read more
Anthem has three current home theater receivers in their lineup that all share some similar features and technologies — the MRX 520, MRX 720, and MRX 1120. We’ll start by discussing what they all have in common, but perhaps more important are the benefits as you move up through the line. We hope that this comparison guide will help you make the right buying decision, as we understand that it’s an important, long-term investment in your overall system.read more
The Cambridge CXN (V2) is an updated version of the original CXN Network Streamer, which was originally released back in 2015 and has received countless awards over the last few years. The updated model brings with it a faster processor, a richer internet radio experience and a finer level of playback control. Once again, Cambridge Audio is delivering far more great sound than you would expect for its price.read more
During the course of testing the Sundara, we compared them directly to some other headphone models in a similar price range. Every comparison we did left us with the same question — “Where did all the music go?” We don’t think you will find anything that gets you this much detail for $500, period.read more
Our trip to Las Vegas for CES 2018 started with two days of rain — the first rainfall in 140 days in Las Vegas (apparently a record). We’ve now been back for just under a week, having traded in rain for snow here in North Carolina, and thought it would be the perfect time to do a recap of some of what we heard and saw at CES 2018.read more
