2007 State of the CE Union Epson Interview

2007 State of the CE Union Epson Interview

Kevin Miller, independent consultant for Epson America and President of ISFTV, sat with us and discussed the newest 1080p projector from Epson. Epson was showing of its brand new PowerLite Pro Cinema 1080 UB ("Ultra Black") projector at the 9th annual Audioholics State of the CE Union Show and we were quite impressed by the picture quality of this unit. While Epson projectors were in every room at the event, they featured their top of the line in the RBH Sound/Yamaha demo room, which was just on the other side of the wall where we conducted this interview.

2007 State of the CE Union Emotiva Interview

2007 State of the CE Union Emotiva Interview

Emotiva surprised everyone by debuting a complete loudspeaker system for an incredible price. They have proven their ability to do a tremendous amount of research into electronics and loudspeaker design to begin with - a new line of speakers was a logical progression. The new LCR speakers ($299 ea.) are built such that the dispersion and polar response are designed identically in either vertical or horizontal positions. This means that the front and center channel speakers are identical and have the same tonality which blends perfectly across the soundstage. Their new subwoofer system sports 2 12" sealed high excursion subwoofers and an 800 watt external amp with room correction for an amazingly low price of $999 for the whole system. Emotiva is gonna cause quite a stir on the net once these products are released.

2007 State of the CE Union Dolby Labs and AIX Records Interview

Clint DeBoer interviews Craig Eggers of Dolby Laboratories and Mark Waldrep of AIX Records at the 2007 Audioholics State of the CE Union Show in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Topics included the first ever showing of Dolby Labs new proposed 7.1 format with 'height' channels. AIX Records provided custom mixes to demo this new format and we talk about various surround formats and their impact on the listening experience. Discrete 7.1 is a new format that has really been made more relevant by the new HD-DVD formats and Dolby is excited about using that to its fullest.

2007 State of the CE Union Axiom Audio Interview

2007 State of the CE Union Axiom Audio Interview

Gene DellaSala interviews Ian Colquhoun and Tom Cumberland on the new A1400-8 amplifier and the new EP400 subwoofer. Axiom Audio loaded up their demo room with 4 EP400s as well as 4 EP600s in order to show that additional subwoofers can even out bass response - and that a smaller subwoofer can and will sound the same as a large subwoofer in a smaller room. We can attest to this fact as the EP400s and EP600s were switched back and forth and there was not much difference between the two in the demo room.

The Boston Experience

The Boston Experience

How often does a company claim to "reinvent" itself? And how many times is it actually true? Boston Acoustics is making a lot of changes - dropping most of their speaker lines, dropping many of their accessory products, and even dropping the "Acoustics" from their name. Reinvention? Absolutely. The new face of Boston was unveiling to us and reported directly to you.
