Boston Acoustics rock-like speakers aren’t new, but I did learn something new about them. The tweeters in the speakers are angled upward about 45 degrees. If you use these speakers around your patio or pool where people will be standing or sitting near by, the angled tweeters will help your guests hear the high frequencies in the music. And then you might even get a write up in the society page of your local newspaper detailing what swell entertainment you have in your backyard.

Sure, you want a subwoofer. But, of course, the best acoustical location for it is waaay across the room from your receiver. So, you'll have to run a long wire under the carpet.  Bummer. Or, you could buy a wireless subwoofer. For example,...

Raxxess makes more racks than you can shake a remote at, including some affordable residential racks that utilize wood shelves. If you need a bit more ventilation, however, you’ll need some of the metal shelves that have plenty of cutouts for better airflow. For really serious (and heavy) systems, Raxxess offers racks that include a rolling support that hides under the front of the rack.

Somehow the word “true” must have taken on a new meaning while I was not paying attention…

I don’t know how humid it gets in Boston, but I do know how humid it gets in my bathroom after one of my children takes a luxuriously long shower (the kind that sucks every last drop of even lukewarm water out of the hot water heater). Boston Acoustics’ new HH 460T2 is a “high-humidity and weather-resistant” single-point stereo in-ceiling speaker that includes a foam collar around the center post that protects the voice coil from dampness and a crossover that is covered with a special type of varnish to protect it from the elements. The speaker also uses the same type of binding posts found on Boston’s Voyager outdoor speakers, so they’re easy to seal with silicone after the wires have been connected. Two models are available. The HH460T2 is $275 each. The higher-end VH470 T2 is $450 each.

If anyone thought that Panasonic was lagging in the hotly-contested display market, the company moved to dispel the misconception. The 65VX100U plasma display was unveiled, and it is wonderful indeed. The VX100 is a 65-inch custom-install only...

AVRak’s new Fatrak component rack is 36” wide – enough for two components to sit side-by-side on each shelf – so the rack can hold the same amount of gear as a 72” tall standard rack. The Fatrak pulls out far enough from the cabinet so that you can swivel the rack for easy access to the cables and wiring that will look like a rat’s nest no matter how hard you try to organize it. The 36” tall model (FT-36) is rated to hold up to 350 pounds of gear. There are also 24” and 30” versions available. Custom heights can be ordered as well. The FT-36 sells for $2,172.

M&K, one of the long time leaders in loudspeakers and specifically professional grade monitors, is back. Their booth was pretty Spartan but they had a nice line-up of old favorites on display.
