Teac has a neat unit that will burn CD's from vinyl (why
you might ask?).

I read an article about that in our local paper today. Do they have a price set yet?

Not that I'd call vinyl high-quality, even if you can remove the cracks and pops.

I've put some of my vinyl on CD by running my turntable through a preamp and into a sound card, and it actually didn't sound too bad. Most of it was relatively scratch and dust free so that wasn't a huge problem, but still evident.

But seriously, just buy the CD's, they're much better sounding.
LET'S GO BUFFALO!!!

Someone (Logitech?) has had one of these out for a while. The other things sound pretty cool.

MSRP is $449.00 for the existing piece (retro look) and $649.00 for the better piece which is due out in the next couple of months (maybe). And the retro look piece is going to be replaced, with a newer more modern looking item, at the same cost.

Other item of interest?

Optoma displaying 2 single mirror RP set ups. Both 1080P. Both serious high dollar. 100" and 130". 30" depth and 38" depth respectively.

Optoma HD81 w/anamorphic lens paired with a HD-3000 processor, shown on a Stewart screen. Absolutely incredible image!

RCA (Gyration) has a new MCE wireless keyboard/mouse. Mouse is actually a MCE remote. Claimed 100' RF range.

Gyration also has a new miniture "air mouse". This thing is REALLY cool.

I did not go but my Denon rep called me and said that the new stuff will allow the digital feeds to carry over to zone 2.

Interested in this one ... do you have any info on product #, etc? It's not this, is it? I thought this had been around for a while:

This one, the "Air Mouse Presenter?"

Looked a lot like that but I think it's a bit different. But then again I don't get out much....lol

Again, what I saw looked very similar. First I've seen it. Was fun to play with. Worked really well.

I don't want to offend any sensibilities, so I won't give away too much here, other than to say that a key movie producer has changed his mind, shifting from Blu-ray to HD DVD

In all seriousness, that was av ery well produced movie - a first for that industry. Extensive use of CGI and it actually had a plot. A feeble plot, but a plot non-the-less.

not that I've actually seen it ;-)

just what a friend told me

Russound has gone and done it. They're coming out with
a Viiv Media Center PC. It's the first media-server maker
out of the big 4 (escient, request, elan) to go to the
dark side. The products, called Smart Media Consoles,
will ship with versions of Lifeware software sometime
this spring.

And they're taking the high road with this item, unlike the Rnet products. ALL dealers will be required to complete a training course AND pass a test in order to be on the "authorized dealer" list.

I imagine there will also be a "buy in" required.

Sounds like a good plan to me.

Would have to see this to believe it - can anyone @ CES
verify this?

SANYO to Demonstrate Wireless HD Projector (WHDI Technology)
[Link: audioholics.com]

Stopped by the Sanyo booth today and checkedit out.

While this system works, and works quite well, it is only going to be available on their "large venue" projectors initially. Then as time passes, it will come with a receiver that will allow for it's use on most Sanyo projectors via the RS232 input. And eventually it is to ship with a adapter to allow for use with any projector.

MSRP estimate for the initial offering is roughly 3K.
