Today I’m checking out JVC’s DLA-RS4500 4K projector. With a native resolution of 4096x2160 pixels, it represents a true 4K experience. Packed with technologies like a 20,000-hour laser phosphor light source, HDR, and plenty of light output; it’s just the thing for high-end theaters seeking to employ the latest technology. With THX and ISF certification, it should satisfy enthusiasts and videophiles alike.
Whole-house audio gets easier and better with each new product introduction. Today I’m looking at the Bluesound Pulse 2 All-In-One Streaming Music System. It combines a BluOS streaming player with a DirectDigital tri-amplifier, premium speakers, and support for nearly every music format including MQA. It’s the ultimate in convenience, quality sound, and high-end styling. The lifestyle audio product genre may have to shoot for a newly elevated benchmark.
When you want greater accuracy and precision from a display, the best solution is an outboard video processor. The Murideo Prisma Video Processor supports 3D look-up tables and advanced image enhancement for any flat panel or projector. Not satisfied with your display’s color? The Prisma can fix it for you!
Part of the BenQ Home Theater line, the BenQ HT1070 3D DLP Projector sports a single-chip light engine with 3D, optional wireless HDMI, built-in audio, and a compact form factor. Don’t let its small size fool you. The HT1070 packs some seriously high accuracy, sharp optics, amazing picture quality into its diminutive chassis...
Enthusiasts covet sound quality above all, while others prioritize convenience. The NAD M32 DirectDigital Amplifier bridges the gap between audiophile and lifestyle products. This smart-amp incorporates advanced amplifier technology from the Masters Series along with an optional BluOS module that pulls music in from the Internet and your personal library. It’s just as comfortable playing your most treasured vinyl as it is pulling in alt-rock from iHeartRadio.
Seymour-Screen Excellence is known for its many versatile products. Today I’m checking out their True Aspect Masking System 1T with Enlightor 4K acoustically-transparent material...
Chris' passion for audio began when he took up playing the bassoon at age 12. During his third year at the New England Conservatory of Music, he won a position with the West Point Band where he served for 26 years as principal bassoonist. He retired from the Army in 2013 and is now writing full time and performing as a freelance musician in Central Florida. As an avid movie lover, Chris was unable to turn away the 50-inch Samsung DLP TV that arrived at his door one day, thus launching him irrevocably into an obsession with home theater. Dissatisfied with the image quality of his new acquisition, Chris trained with the Imaging Science Foundation in 2006 and became a professional display calibrator. His ultimate theater desires were realized when he completed construction of a dedicated cinema/listening room in his home. Chris is extremely fortunate that his need for quality audio and video is shared and supported by his wife of over 25 years. In his spare time he enjoys riding his recumbent trike at least 100 miles per week, trying out new restaurants, going to theme parks and spending as much time as possible watching movies and listening to music. Chris enjoys bringing his observations and discoveries about every kind of home theater product to as many curious and well-informed readers as possible. He is proud to be a part of the Team and hopes to help everyone enjoy their AV experiences to the fullest.
