Artison's new subwoofer, RCC 600, hides in a wall, with four unique drivers that oppose each other with rigidly attached baskets. This allows the reactance forces generated to cancel one another. According to Artison, one RCC 600 provides a bass/sound quality surpassing that of a typical 12-inch subwoofer.

JVC demonstrated a new 1080p/D-ILA video projector that is expected to sell for around $7000 when it becomes available next year. it looked outstanding, even outperforming the Sony VPL-VW100 ("Ruby") set up side-by-side with it. I saw no significant shortcomings, at least under show conditions. It even had the best contrast I've yet seen on a JVC projector, by far.
