<A href="">Denon</A> is certainly pushing the envelope&#151;in terms of both performance and price&#151;with its new flagship line that includes a surround pre/pro, 10-channel power amp, and universal disc player. <I>UAV</I> reviewed the pre/pro and power amp <A href=", but we haven't yet taken a critical look at the DVD-A1UDCI player.

<A href="">B&W</A>'s Nautilus speakers are not new&#151;they were introduced in 1993&#151;but they remain unequaled in the sheer beauty of their design. And that design isn't merely for the sake of visual impact&#151;it's a classic case of form following function.

Italian projector maker <A href="">SIM2</A> specializes in combining high style and high performance, especially when it comes to the high end. The company's C3X Lumis HOST 1080p projector is a perfect case in point&#151;curvaceous cabinet on the outside and 3-chip DLP imaging engine on the inside.

If CES 2009 was any indication, it looked like Philips was getting out of the consumer-electronics business, seeing as how the company had no booth or press conference this year. We know for sure it won't be selling TVs in North America, having reached a deal whereby Japanese electronics manufacturer Funai will market Philips and Magnavox TVs in the US and Canada while Philips concentrates on Europe and key emerging countries.

Unless you're a serious audiophile, you might not know the name <A href="">Goldmund</A>. After 30 years making ultra-high-end audio components, this Swiss company is expanding into the realm of home theater. But if you think it's simply offering projectors and surround-sound systems, think again. When you contact Goldmund to discuss home theater, you'll be talking about a <I>complete</I> media room that the company will design, build, equip, and calibrate from beginning to end.

<A href="">Wilson Audio</A> is well known for ultra-high-end speakers, but most of its products are designed for 2-channel listening. To create a full surround system, all you need do is mate any of Wilson's superlative L/R models with a center, surrounds, subwoofer, and controller from the WATCH (Wilson Audio Theater Comes Home) lineup.

After billions of years of evolution, Mother Nature still needs a proper soundtrack.

As a Home Theater reader, you probably fit into the fine category of people for whom music and movies are a big part of life. I'm willing to bet that, when it comes to electronic entertainment, you think inside the box. Well, I guess it's more like two boxes: your home and your car. Sure, no self-respecting Home Theaters reader feels complete without a DVD player and full-blown home theater in his or her living room, and most of you probably couldn't live without a CD player in your car. But how many of you have come to realize that Mother Nature's soundtrack could use a little assistance (especially if you happen to be, like me, an environmentally challenged city dweller)?
