David's Take: Defying Physics - The Samsung HW-MS650 Soundbar

David's Take: Defying Physics - The Samsung HW-MS650 Soundbar

I browsed through my local Best Buy and found the Samsung HW-MS650, which is sold at an MSRP of $600. It caught my eye for being very attractive, with no-nonsense, industrial rectangular sculpting. Add to that the brushed finish on the top, and the industrial-style grille over the speakers, and everything harmonized together beautifully. So I brought it home with me.

David's Take: Hands-On Review of the RSC Ichigo Dashcam

There's a bucketful of dashcam brands out there. Unfortunately, most of them are of questionable quality. That includes major brand dashcams that are no more than mediocre (or worse) quality units being slapped with big brand logos.

HANDS-ON REVIEW: Pioneer Car Audio Featuring the DEQ-S1000A DSP & Z Series Speaker System

When I bought my 2018 Volkswagen Golf R, I was disappointed that VW no longer offers Dynaudio audio as a factory upgrade option in Canada. It was offered for my 2010 Golf GTI, but now, Fender Premium Audio is the upgrade option for the GTI line.

David's Take: Eye on the Road - Hands-On the Pioneer ND-DVR100 Dash Cam

With the number of insane drivers in the city who have seemingly obtained their drivers' licenses from Cracker Jack boxes, driving have become a frustrating ordeal. After years of witnessing a countless number of illegal stops, U-turns, and instances of texting while driving, I started to install dash cams in my car.

David's Take: Hands-On The Edifier S730 2.1 Speaker System

David's Take: Hands-On The Edifier S730 2.1 Speaker System

While it's easy for me to find and pick speakers for my home theatre, bedroom, and listening room, that's not necessarily the case for my computer system. It was easier when I used to do a lot of studio work. I'd buy the best one I could afford, which was from Genelec, and priced around US$3,500 back in 1998. Now, it's a different story. I want something a lot more affordable, in the $600 range, and that's of a 2.1 configuration.

The concept is simple, yet iRobot has made it even simpler and more convenient with its latest version, the Roomba i7+ , along with its Clean Base and Automatic Dirt Disposal bin.

David's Take: Sonarworks True-Fi: It Truly Works

David's Take: Sonarworks True-Fi: It Truly Works

Sonarworks software claims to calibrate any pair of headphones to sound like a pair of studio headphones by flattening the frequency response to a studio-reference standard. I was sceptical, but I figured I'd stop by to check it out. Boy, was I wrong!
