Legacy Audio Signature SE Tower Speakers Review

In an effort to bring the critically-acclaimed sound quality of their Focus SE speakers to a larger audience, Legacy Audio has created the Signature SE Tower Speaker. Sporting very similar drivers in a smaller cabinet, the Legacy Audio Signature SE strives to bring the big Legacy sound to those with smaller rooms or a lower budget.

Bluesound Pulse 2 All-In-One Streaming Music System Review

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.

JVC DLA-RS4500 4K Projector Review

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.

HiFiMAN HE1000 V2 Planar Magnetic Headphone Review

When I reviewed the original HiFiMAN HE1000 Planar Magnetic Headphones about two years ago, I was pretty much bowled over by their performance, looks and sound quality. They were, at the time, the best pair of headphones that I had ever heard and still remain amongst a handful of reference headphones that I would consider as my all-time favorites. Ever the busy little bees that they are, the engineers at HiFiMAN have not seen fit to leave well-enough alone and recently released the HE1000 V2. The updated model is said to incorporate several modifications gleaned from customer feedback along with HiFiMAN’s general desire to keep refining their designs.

MartinLogan Cadence Soundbar

MartinLogan Cadence Soundbar and Dynamo 700w Subwoofer Review

Soundbars come in many different sizes and configurations, but the new MartinLogan Cadence offers many more features that set it apart from the competition. With assistance from the MartinLogan Dynamo 700w subwoofer, the Cadence offers excellent sound quality for both movies and music. Add to that wireless network connectivity, three HDMI inputs, one HDMI out, two optical, and two RCA inputs with a sub out and you have the fixings for a veritable “Swiss Army Knife” of soundbars.
