Sony VPL-VW1100ES 4K Home Cinema ProjectorThe world of 4K Ultra HD video keeps on expanding. Over the last several months, RapalloAV has sold many of Sony 4K projectors. Both the top of the line VPL-VW1100ES and their next step down VPL-VW500ES have put big smiles on many faces! Not only do they look jaw-droppingly good on 4K content, they each upscale your non-4K content to 4K and provide incredible pictures. Sony’s rich experience in commercial cinema gives them an edge in upscaling technology.  You have never seen Netflix, Blu-ray, or broadcast TV look so good!

When Oppo announced the HA-1, critics wondered why the company would bother, since the Oppo PM-1 and PM-2 headphones are so amplifier-friendly that an iPhone can drive them to head-banging levels. The answer is simple: the HA-1 is for all those other headphones that aren't as accepting or compatible with low-power sources as Oppo's cans. But the Oppo HA-1 isn't just a potent headphone amplifier, it's also a preamp with multiple outputs and a DAC that supports a wide range of formats and inputs.

Prime TowersYou'd think that, after so many decades of speaker development, we'd have settled on a perfect driver complement. Actually, we kind of have. Once you look carefully at what kinds of speakers work best in most rooms, with most music, and for most listeners' tastes--and also tend to produce the best measured performance--you end up with three-way designs. These typically combine a dome or ribbon tweeter, a midrange driver in the four-inch range, and one or more 6.5- or eight-inch woofers.

In the second installment of our Good Better Best series, we turn our attention to the AV receiver. We previously surveyed the HDTV landscape and discussed what you can/should expect to find at the different price levels. The AV receiver category might be even more confusing, with so many options available at so many price points. A casual glance at the specs won't necessarily help you distinguish one product from another, or one price class from another; it's only when you dig a little deeper that the differences start to emerge. Once you figure out what your AV system demands in terms of power, connectivity, and features, it'll be easier to narrow the field. So, let's start digging...and please do keep in mind that we're painting broad strokes here. This type of story demands generalizations that may not apply to every available AV receiver on the market, and sale prices (especially this time of year) certainly can alter the landscape.
