AudioControl
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.

Set-top converter boxes (STBs) may eventually disappear, thanks to cable compatibility rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Tuesday, September 10. The rules ratify an agreement reached by cable companies and electronics makers late last year, and insure that new televisions will be able to connect directly to cable feeds nationwide without the need for an adaptive device.

Photos by Tony Cordoza The good old cathode-ray tube (CRT) is up against some stiff competition these days. Leading the charge are sexy flat-panel plasma and LCD TVs that can be mounted on the wall like a picture.

Illustration by Rick Wessler Confused about HDTV? Well, it can be hard to find somebody who isn't - which is why I recently had a consultation with my esteemed colleague, Dr. Hidef, who isn't the tiniest bit perplexed when it comes to high-definition TV.
