Photos by Tony Cordoza My old man told me I'd get nowhere trying to be all things to all people, but Denon appears to have done pretty well by flouting this adage with its new DVD-2900. (I always knew Dad was full of it.) It plays optical discs in just about every current video or audio flavor.

But on this stifling day in late June The Jeff Corwin Experience is on location in New York City doing a show about how wild animals adapt to urban environments.

DVD recorders are quickly maturing into a product category that promises to topple the venerable VCR from its perch as the predominant video-recording format for consumers. Yes, videotape is still less expensive than most blank discs, especially rewritable discs, which are more directly equivalent to tape than write-once discs. And yes, analog VCRs are much less expensive than DVD recorders. But prices for blank discs and recorders are dropping fast, and the functionality and convenience of DVD recording are so far beyond videotape that the extra expense is well worth it.

What if every product you bought was built with only award-winning designs? The world would be a kinder, gentler place, that's for sure. AudioControl is doing their part with their new Architect Model 950, which uses the same Class H Architect amplifier design that made the Model 1250 a past CEDIA Product of the Year. According to the company, AudioControl's Class H multi-rail design provides cool operation without using noisy fan mechanisms. The 16-channel, multizone amplifier features a five-band room-correction equalizer, and it uses BiMOS output channels for a dynamic, 4-ohm output of 55 watts. The compact unit takes up only 7 inches of panel height (four rack spaces), but a rack-mount adapter is also available. The Architect Model 950 is constructed on an all-metal chassis and retails for $3,250.
