According to the company, its line of power cables offers improved signal speed, better power transfer, and increased thermal efficiency. The Valhalla boasts a propagation speed of 90 percent. Like the company's other models, the Valhalla power cords use 99.9 percent oxygen-free copper conductors for better power transfer and performance.

PSB
You know that a product is going to be good when the designer is also the company's founder. Such is the case with PSB's new Platinum Series, designed and developed by founder Paul S. Barton. The line includes seven new models: the T8 and T6 towers, M2 minimonitor, C4 and C2 center channels, S2 bipolar surround, and SubSonic 10 subwoofer. The PSB Platinum T8, the flagship tower, uses three 8-inch woofers, two 4.5-inch midrange drivers, and two 1-inch tweeters. The front tweeter faces forward, while the other tweeter is rear-firing. The midrange drivers and front tweeter are arranged in a D'Appolito array. According to the company, this arrangement produces a large horizontal and vertical sweet spot with outstanding clarity. The enclosure measures 10.5 by 46.5 by 16 inches and is available in black ash or cherry, with a die-cast aluminum base, top, and side extrusions. The T8 is available at a suggested retail price of $6,500 per pair.

Luxeon
Luxeon proves that a DLP projector doesn't have to be big to be good. Their portable D520P projector weighs only 5.9 pounds and has just about every feature a theaterphile would expect from a DLP. Foremost among these features is Texas Instruments' Double Data Rate (DDR) technology, which is said to produce quicker micromirror movement and thus a higher-quality image. The D520P's light output is rated at 2,000 ANSI lumens, and it has a 1,500:1 contrast ratio and a native resolution of 1,024:768. Other tricks include a picture-in-picture function, manual zoom and focus, and vertical and horizontal digital keystone correction. For the asking price of $3,899, Luxeon also throws in a soft carrying case and a remote.
