Sony KP-57XBR10W rear-projection television Page 3

The slow march toward that new digital broadcast standard has brought us a small but rapidly swelling flow of new DTV widescreen televisions—far better sets than anything the average consumer has ever seen before. These TVs are still very much high-end products, but despite their cost, sales are increasing at a steady rate.

Theta David II DVD/CD transport Review System

Only three years after their debut, the prices of budget DVD players have dropped below $200. That paltry sum wouldn't even cover the Connecticut sales tax on the Theta David II. If you're already seeing red, come back next month, when I'll undoubtedly review something that won't have you gagging as if a Chinese pepper has gone down the wrong pipe. On the other hand, if you've always wondered why caviar from the Caspian goes for more than the Rhode Island variety, stick around.

Denon AVR-5800 A/V receiver Measurements

"The world's most advanced Home Theater Receiver" is Denon's claim for the AVR-5800, and, now that I've spent a few months with it, they'll get no arguments from me. It's the world's first 7.1-channel receiver with DTS-ES Discrete 6.1, DTS-ES Matrix 6.1, DTS Neo:6, THX surround EX, Dolby Digital 5.1, and Dolby Pro Logic. It's like one of those new cruise ships that more closely resembles a floating city. What Denon has managed to pack into its large, sleek, heavy black hull (at 62 lbs, it's the most massive I've seen) is remarkable in terms of both versatility and performance. Denon's marketing manager, David Birch-Jones, proclaims the AVR-5800 to be "Without question the finest A/V receiver ever created." But are "most advanced" and "finest" necessarily the same thing? We'll have to dig deeper to find out.
