More than a year ago, Zenith shook up the world of plasma televisions by introducing the DPD60W, the first 60-inch model&mdash;a behemoth that seemed to fill up a room. For Zenith, it was a statement product and a wonder to behold, though its performance problems held it back from the first rank of plasma displays (see the review in the January 2002 <I>SGHT</I>, also available archived at <A HREF="http://www.guidetohometheater.com">www.guidetohometheater.com</A>).

DVD: The Recruit—Buena Vista
Video: 3
Audio: 3
Extras: 3
Al Pacino and Colin Farrell star in The Recruit, an entertaining albeit predictable spy thriller about the supposed CIA training camp called the Farm. The chemistry between Pacino, Farrell, and female lead Bridget Moynahan is enjoyable, but the film's nothing-is-as-it-seems theme could have been borrowed from the Michael Douglas film The Game.

Onkyo
How many of us have dreamed of owning a multidisc DVD changer? Well, Onkyo makes that dream come true with their affordable DV-CP701, a six-disc changer that's a steal at just $300. The DV-CP701 features 10-bit/54-megahertz video processing, a progressive-scan composite video output, and 24-bit/192-kiohertz audio digital-to-analog converters. When you use the rear-panel optical and coaxial digital outputs, you can also make use of Onkyo's Direct Digital Path, which ensures maximum integrity of Dolby Digital, DTS, and PCM audio. All of this comes in a housing that measures a svelte 3.5 inches high and is available in a sleek silver or a traditional black finish. Onkyo also offers the DV-SP301, a single-disc model that sells for $150.

Photos by Tony Cordoza In the movie Kate & Leopold, Leopold (Hugh Jackman) finds himself vaulted from the 19th century into the early 21st century. Given the fascination this time traveler shows with new technology, the three home theater speaker systems here would certainly have raised his eyebrows.

Fujitsu It's a whole new look for Fujitsu's Plasmavision. The 42-inch P42VHA20 has a lighter silver finish than previous models and front-panel controls discreetly located in the bottom righthand corner. It's also just 3 inches thick.
