David's Take: Which Screen To Buy? - Part 4 of 4 - Acoustically Transparent Screens

David's Take: You're COVR-ed - Hands-on the D-Link COVR Mesh Networking Solution

Mesh networking is all about spreading high-speed wireless networking across your home and doing it as easily as possible. The idea is to connect the modem-equipped router and place secondary (and tertiary, and so on) modules or nodes in locations to help extend coverage and make it more reliable.

David's Take: The Reasons I Love Parametric EQ and How Theory Audio Design Implements It

David's Take: Hands-on the Edifier R1280T Speakers - They Really Don't Suck

When Edifier sent me an e-mail with the title "$100 speakers that don't suck," my first thought was: challenge accepted! They're about $130/pr. in Canada with a straight price conversion, so they still fall into the sub-$150 category. What could I expect? A lot, apparently.

HANDS-ON REVIEW: Roksan K3 Integrated Amplifier and CD Player

HANDS-ON REVIEW: Roksan K3 Integrated Amplifier and CD Player

I heard the name Roksan when I was growing up in Australia. Some of my friends' parents owned the company's CD player and integrated amps, usually coupled with the Dual turntable, wired with Monster Cables, and set up with Monitor Audio speakers.

David's Take: You Bought A New TV. Now What?

So you bought a new TV. Now what? In order for it to perform at its best, and to prolong its life (not to mention that of your eyes), you will need to calibrate the display. However, most consumers understandably don't want to spend $300 on the calibration of a $1,000 TV. As a calibrator, here are some tips on what can be done to optimize a TV's performance.
