It's not wrong to want a DLP projector that has professional features for your home theater without wanting to break your bank to buy it. Fortunately, the folks at Vidikron agree and offer their new Vision Model 20 DLP projector. The Vision Model 20 is based on Texas Instruments' HD-2 DLP chip and includes internal video processing with 3:2-pulldown detection. Are you an HDTV hound? Just add an outboard tuner, and the Vision Model 20 will give you full HDTV compatibility. With a rated light output of 850 ANSI lumens and a 1,500:1 contrast ratio, you can use the Vision Model 20 with a screen up to 96 inches wide. Vidikron offers this well-rounded DLP projector for $5,495.
In the market for a midpriced A/V receiver with plenty of features? Integra's DTR-6.4 may be the receiver for you. This six-channel, THX Select–certified model provides 100 watts per channel and offers a six-channel analog input with bass management for both SACD and DVD-Audio sources. Inside, you'll find 32-bit dual-DSP audio processing for the Dolby EX, Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS, DTS ES, DTS Neo:6, and 24/96 formats. If that weren't enough to convince you of this receiver's flexibility, its subwoofer crossover is selectable at 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, or 150 hertz. The DTR-6.4 may be a good match for your high-resolution-audio sources at a nice, round $1,000.
