Report 1 from Ross Jones
Flat screen manufacturers love to show off their enormous displays at trade shows. Here's Panasonic's 103" 1080p plasma. No price listed (if you have to ask . . .).
Panasonic's newest 1080p front projector, the PT-AE3000, is slated to start shipping in October. It claims a 60,000:1 contrast ratio, along with special motion display settings for fast moving images. Suggested retail price is $3,495.
Paradigm is replacing its Signature Servo subwoofer with the new Sub 25. This beast has a 15" driver with a class D amp rated at 3000 watts RMS. It is supposed to be 5 dB louder than the Signature Servo. Paradigm's demo room had two of the Sub 25's; they were very impressive-sounding. Price is $3,999.
Anthem is coming out with a new two-channel integrated amp, the 225. It is rated at 225 channels x 2, and includes a phono stage. Price is $1,499. Anthem is also making the long-awaited update to its popular D2 pre-pro. Tenatively called the D2.v2, it is HDMI 1.3a, with eight HDMI inputs and two outputs.
