Canton
Canton's Movie CD-1 5.1-channel speaker system is a shining beauty of a package. It consists of a center channel, four matching satellites for the left, right, and surround channels, and a 100-watt subwoofer that's rated down to 38 hertz. The CD-1 satellite measures just 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide and deep and has a frequency response of 80 Hz to 25 kilohertz. The center channel features drivers in a D'Appolito array and a tapered cabinet that allows you to tilt the speaker toward the listening position. All of the speakers have a gleaming aluminum finish, and the sub is finished in a complementary matte silver. The system costs $1,099 and comes with mounting brackets for all four satellites. The optional LS-90 speaker stands are available for $125 per pair.

DVD-Audio: Joey Ramone, Don't Worry About Me (Silverline)
A friend of mine once said about the Ramones, "They're stupid, but they'll never lie to you." He was wrong about the stupidity but right about the sincerity. Who but Joey Ramone could do such a convincing cover of "What a Wonderful World"? In his hands, the song made famous by Louis Armstrong becomes a buzz-saw vision of a better world. With his death from leukemia not far off, the former lead singer of the Ramones wasn't in the mood for irony.

Beginning as barely a trickle, it is now becoming a steady stream as more and more "universal" optical-disc players reach store shelves. The latest models can play DVD-Video discs (and home-burned DVD-R/RWs recorded in the DVD-Video format), DVD-Audio discs, CDs (including CD-R/RW discs and those with MP3 files), and Super Audio CDs.
