The Japanese manufacturer has announced huge advances in contrast ratio––boosting it from a middling 400:1 to a mind-boggling 2000:1--and resulting in, the company says, brighter whites and darker blacks.

At the end of January, San Francisco-based Parasound will begin shipping its highly anticipated Halo C1 audio/video controller. The Halo C1 and its sibling, the Halo C 2, are said to allow audiophiles to control their acoustic environment in ways never before possible with consumer products. The two new models are THX Ultra2-certified, multichannel A/V controllers with sophisticated DSP engines, and are claimed to deliver "previously unattainable levels of performance and control, while remaining exceptionally easy to set up and operate."
