The Devialet Phantom – can you recognize quality sound?

by Caitlyn

When you watch a video on YouTube, you can tell when quality is lacking. The image on your screen is pixelated, the sound is tinny, and while you can figure out what’s happening, you know searching for another of the same video will likely yield better results. Can you tell when a speaker at home is lacking quality? Do you keep an ear out for how it handles highs and lows?

Razer Turret

We’re not trying to be lazy when we get home from work, but when you’ve already pushed yourself for ten or more hours, it’s just too taxing to do any more in a day. The moment the shoes come off and you get comfy, many of us end up with a controller or mouse and keyboard in our hands. Usually one or the other would delineate whether you’d be at a desk or on the couch, but thankfully we have all sorts of ways to make it so you don’t have to choose between one or the other.

Swiss Engineered Quad Calibrated Turntable costs a bomb

by Edwin

swiss-quad-turntableA turntable might be seen by some to be an antique, while for the others, it might be a plaything for folks who have some extra dough to splash at the end of each month. After all, vinyl records are not all that cheap in the first place, and they do tend to wear out with constant listening, so you might want to use them sparingly. Well, a device that does CD playback and has USB compatibility is extremely common and affordable, but if you would like to go all out, then the $94,000 Swiss Engineered Quad Calibrated Turntable might be just the right thing for you.

This happens to be a turntable that provides vinyl enthusiasts the pleasure of listening to LPs using one of four precisely calibrated tone arms. It has been specially crafted in Bern, Switzerland, where it is composed of a magnetically suspended aluminum platter that is nestled within a special wooden cylinder, ensuring it delivers a stable, silent base that will remain unaffected by environmental vibration. A quartet of smaller cylinders will surround the platter of each house, letting you listen to different styles of music with whichever tonearm provides your preferred sound quality. Not only that, there is also integrated damping technology that does away with the troublesome sonic aberrations generated by common consumer models, as each cylinder sports a trio of adjustable steel feet that enable precisely calibrated height placement for the central platter and four tonearms. Definitely a purchase for the filthy rich!

by Edwin

acer-v9800When it comes to home entertainment, the experience that one’s senses go through are slowly but surely about to reach the par of that of a cinema, although unless you are someone who is flush with cash, chances are you would not end up with a cavernous hall that is akin to a small cinema, but rather, would be pleased as punch with a big enough room that has a large sized screen – curved or otherwise. If you would like to go one step further, how about investing in a projector instead? 4K projectors are starting to catch up in the mainstream market, and Acer has hopped along the bandwagon with its V9800 4K Ultra-High-Definition Home Cinema Projector.
