Meaty, beaty, little, and bouncy.

The Earthquake SuperNova could be the world's most dangerous end table. No amount of Krazy Glue will repair the heartbreak of the unwary soul who dares place the family-heirloom Tiffany lamp or Waterford vase on this compact subwoofer. This is not a New Age sub disguised as a fine piece of furniture, a veneered life-style block

Bass beyond belief.

There are some things you just don't expect to find together—say, peanut butter and foie gras or Anne Rice's vampire Lestat in a Garlique commercial. Other combinations may be more desirable and more elusive: a multiterm politician with integrity, for example, or computer products that not only work as advertised but do so consistently (wow, what a concept!). Rarer still is that mythical, mystical creation, immortalized in song and story and lusted after by speaker designers since the invention of the voice coil: the bookshelf speaker with bass.

Rarely do integrated components perform as well as separates for an equivalent amount of money. The AVR307, from Buffalo, NY-based B&K, is an exception. Its operating flexibility, multi-format surround capability and audiophile amplifier technology make it an attractive choice for those who want maximum performance with minimum clutter. The AVR307 is intended for music and movie fans who agree with B&K's philosophy of "sensible simplicity."

Big speaker boxes are the bane of interior decorators. They've been battling with audiophiles for decades. Home theater, with its reliance on huge powered subwoofers to create realistic bass, has expanded the war.

We at <I>SGHT</I> are no strangers to Rotel products. In the October 2000 issue, Michael Fremer reviewed Rotel's RTC-965 surround processor/tuner with the RB-985 Mk.II power amplifier, and in February 2001, Robert Deutsch waxed enthusiastic about the RMB-1095 power amp. Both writers lauded these products' value, and RD spoke of Rotel's consistency in product and circuit design, something he'd noticed through the years. He declared the RMB-1095 "one of the best buys in a multichannel amplifier."

As HDTV slowly rolls out across the US, more and more consumers are finding that those simple days of common connectors and out-of-the-box compatible equipment are now over.

Whenever we <A HREF="http://www.guidetohometheater.com/showvote.cgi?224">run a poll</A> on the <I>SGHT</I> Website asking what it will take to put HDTV in more homes, "lower prices" is the overwhelming response. Manufacturers have been responding, with recent price reductions from <A HREF="http://www.guidetohometheater.com/shownews.cgi?1168">NEC</A>, <A HREF="http://www.guidetohometheater.com/shownews.cgi?962">Fujitsu</A>, and others.
