Do you feel like you’re back in the ’70s, when vinyl ruled and fashion was…well, let’s just say, questionable?

There’s a good reason for that: Tannoy’s new Legacy Series is based on the popular High Powered Dual (HPD) Series released in 1974, the year after Pink Floyd mixed The Dark Side of the Moon at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios on a pair of newly installed Tannoy Lancaster monitors.

I’ve been a hard-core Beatles fan for…well, let’s just say a very long time. So I was more than a little intrigued when I saw Pro-Ject’s Fab Four turntables (my name, not theirs) at the May press event unveiling Giles Martin’s stereo remix of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The thought of a “new” Beatles record being played on a table that pays homage to the greatest band ever was compelling. Maybe it’s time to revisit my long-dormant vinyl collection...

Epson Home Cinema 4000 LCD Projector
Although it’s been almost six years since the intro- duction of the first native 4K projectors for the consumer market, 4K prices still remain beyond the means of many enthusiasts. Which is why Epson is attempting to make its “4K-enhanced” 1080p technology even more affordable, this time in the new Home Cinema 4000 3LCD projector.

Polk Audio MagniFi Max SR Soundbar System
Polk takes on the typical soundbar-plus-sub competition in the new MagniFi Max SR with two weapons. First, there’s the included pair of wireless rear surround speakers that ensure a room-filling 5.1-channel experience. But the “big” news is the inclusion of Polk’s Stereo Dimensional Array (SDA) tech- nology, the same secret sauce that makes the tiny MagniFi Mini compact soundbar stand out with a giant soundstage.

I tried to contain my excitement when Apple announced HomePod, declaring it “a breakthrough wireless speaker for the home that delivers amazing audio quality.” And to think that it will use “spatial awareness to sense its location in a room and automatically adjust the audio.” Fantastic! With that kind of technology, I might be forced to end my longstanding (but tenuous) relationship with Windows once and for all, trade in my Samsung Galaxy for an iPhone, and embrace Apple Music.

It’s not new but Steinway Lyngdorf’s S-15 remains stunning in its aesthetic and technical design. Visually, this tiny treasure has little in common with your garden-variety box speaker—nor should it, considering its pedigree. For starters, it’s 10 inches tall, 8 inches wide, and only 3 inches thick—or about a half-inch wider and an inch thicker than the 1997 Webster’s New World College Dictionary collecting dust on a shelf in my office.
