Proton’s Large Screen Stereo Monitor

Crafted to serve as the visual centerpiece of a sophisticated home theater/ entertainment system, Proton’s NT-3420 Stereo Monitor/ Receiver features 181 channel auto-programming and a 32 inch screen. A full 650 lines of horizontal resolution assure the integrity of video images from broadcast programming to laserdisc/DVD and S-VHS titles. An advance digital comb filter and a stiffly regulated power supply further enhance picture quality.

B&W’s CDM Loudspeakers

B/W has expanded its Compact Digital Monitor Series of loud-speakers with a full range, floor standing model, the CDM 7. Like other models in the series, the new design applies new concepts and materials in the development of high-performance music reproduction speakers. The exceptionally compact, dramatically slim CDM-its “foot-print” is just the size of a standard magazine-produces extended deep bass and enhanced dynamics from a uniquely attractive, innovative three way design.

Bose Acoustimass Speakers

Bose designers believe that audio equipment that reproduces sound should be heard, not seen. That’s the basic idea behind Bose Acoustimass speakers, which were developed to overcome two major obstacles in traditional speaker design: bulk and placement. To accomplish these goals, Bose uses a small speaker driver that produces not only high notes but much of the mid-range of music. And because the Bose cubes are Direct/Reflecting speakers, they disperse the sound more widely and cover a larger area than conventional speakers.

Onkyo’s TX Receivers

Onkyo has unveiled a new two-channel, remote-controlled receiver, the TX-8511. A 100 watt per channel design, the receiver produces high end quality and very substantial power. It also features multi-room capabilities and 30-preset tuning. Despite its two-channel status, the TX-8511 includes a couple of video inputs fully capable of A/V dubbing, plus all discrete power amplifier stages.
