Infinity Cascade Speaker System

How would you feel if you woke up one day in a perfect body? You'd pull back the blanket and look down on a perfectly flat tummy (something I haven't seen in years, although heaven knows I'm trying). Combination skin is a thing of the past—you seem to...

PSB VisionSound 300 Speaker System and Marantz SR8500 A/V Receiver

Neil Young was on NPR chatting about his new movie, Heart of Gold, when he uttered a line that stuck with me: "The art of singing is making a sound that comes from your heart." Thanks Neil, I'm co-opting the idea to describe what distinguishes great...

Infinity Total Solutions TSS-4000

A year ago I reviewed Infinity's terrific- sounding $749 TSS-750 surround speaker system, and it quickly became one of my favorites in its price class—a surefire recommendation for entry-level surround sound systems. But much though I admired that...

Velodyne Digital Drive 1812

Outlook The sound from this subwoofer is something to behold, so if you are undeterred by the size of its cabinet and price tag, then the 1812 Signature Edition is really worth checking out.

JBL Cinema Sound Speaker System

The CSC55 was measured on a 6-foot stand, which gives anechoic results to approximately 200 Hz. Except for the subwoofer, all measurements are taken at a full 2 meters, which emulates a typical listening distance, allows the outputs of large speakers...

BG Radia R-800 In-Wall Speakers

I've reviewed many excel- lent in-wall speakers, but none quite like the new Radia R-800 in-wall speaker from BG. With 24 drivers in each speaker, this giant stands almost 7 feet tall and is clearly designed for extreme listening—extremely satisfying...

Krell LAT 1

Out of the box, these speakers had an unusually rich, robust, beautiful sound, an authority, a majesty even, that greatly impressed me. Unlike some other recently touted and really expensive big speakers that, to these ears, have sounded dead and...

THIEL SmartSub SS1

Even if Thiel hadn't given their new subwoofer line the slick name of SmartSub, I'd still say most subwoofers are stupid. Make that stoopid. Granted, I've had some good ones in the last few years, and that's no accident, since no reviewer would...

Anthony Gallo Acoustics A'Diva Ti Speaker System

Anthony Gallo Acoustics' speakers had me thinking about the old Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme. If you'll recall, after Humpty took a nasty fall and was smashed to pieces, all of the king's horses and men could never make him whole again. Following my...

Crystal Acoustics TX-D12 Speaker System

First-generation THX blossomed in the high-end sphere. The first companies to make THX-certified speakers were already making great ones, with or without certification. Even now, the list of THX speaker makers reads like an industry honor roll. That...

Totem Acoustic Tribe I Speaker System

Just when I thought speaker designers could focus 100 percent of their talents on creating the best-sounding speakers, flat-screen TVs came along and created a burgeoning market for ultrasvelte plasma-friendly speakers. Anything other than the most...

Paradigm MINI Monitor

Audio products renew themselves in a steady drumbeat of new and improved models—although the first part doesn't guarantee the second. In A/V receivers, lines typically turn over once a year, often with no more than small, incremental changes or the...

Revel Ultima2 Studio2 Surround Speaker System

But no speaker line can survive indefinitely. Audiophiles, like most consumers, are constantly looking for the new and different. And the competition is especially fierce in the high-end, where each sale is far more than a blip in a manufacturer's...

I agree with the previous reviewer. A great speaker for the money. Good across the frequency range, perhaps a bit midrange forward; excellent and airy, detailed tweeter and very supportive bass. If you have room space limitations, these speakers...

Sonus faber Domus Series Speaker System

Dynaudio Focus Series Speaker System

I think it's time we revived the old maxim that speakers are the most important part of an audio system. Yes, DVD players, A/V receivers, pre/pros, and power amps all play crucial roles, but speakers give you a bigger shot at personalizing your sound....
