Many home theater experts contend that the proper place for a center channel speaker is directly behind the screen, as in a commercial theater. Such arrangements require perforated screens that are acoustically transparent but visually reflective, an arrangement that can wreak havoc with some fixed-pixel projectors. Annoying moire patterns can result from the relationship between a projector's image elements and the holes in a perforated screen.

We won't even begin to suggest that $10,500 is just pocket change that everyone has lying around. However, when you realize that Dwin's TransVision 3 projection system features both a projector and a video processor, the word value might come to mind. The company says that the separate-component design offers greater installation options and reduces double video-signal processing. The 720p DLP projector uses Texas Instruments' Mustang/HD2 DMD technology and Prism Free Optical light-path architecture for maximum picture contrast. The Carl-Zeiss zoom lens allows for a throw distance from 1.41 to 2.1 times the screen. Meanwhile, the digital video processor accepts 10 video inputs: two DVI with HDCP, two RGB, two S-video, two component, and two composite. It also delivers 720p DVI signals to match the projector's native resolution.

Canton's Movie CD-1 5.1-channel speaker system is a shining beauty of a package. It consists of a center channel, four matching satellites for the left, right, and surround channels, and a 100-watt subwoofer that's rated down to 38 hertz. The CD-1 satellite measures just 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide and deep and has a frequency response of 80 Hz to 25 kilohertz. The center channel features drivers in a D'Appolito array and a tapered cabinet that allows you to tilt the speaker toward the listening position. All of the speakers have a gleaming aluminum finish, and the sub is finished in a complementary matte silver. The system costs $1,099 and comes with mounting brackets for all four satellites. The optional LS-90 speaker stands are available for $125 per pair.

Now this is what we call a deal.

The 16:9 monitor works with the A/V controller to automatically display any video source in widescreen mode. The A/V controller has a rated power output of 100 watts times seven, and the JBL Digital Link maintains all-digital audio and video signal paths. Each speaker uses multiple 5.5-inch woofers, along with a 0.75-inch titanium-laminate dome tweeter. The Cinema Vision is available as a system only, for $15,000.
