REVIEW

PSB Alpha VS21 VisionSound

The PSB Alpha VS21's skimpy feature lineup and so-so movie sound quality don't live up to expectations considering its hefty $600 list price.

EDITORS' TAKE

Canon Connect Station CS100

If you've ever wanted to connect a streaming and backup device to your TV that only works with Canon gear (and SD/CF cards), you're in luck.

REVIEW

Denon AVR-S500BT

While the AVR-S500BT is one of Denon's least expensive receivers, its features lineup is surprisingly generous, and movie and music sound quality is up to snuff for the price.

We get a first taste of the Monster SoundStage S3 wireless speaker system and it's packing some extra features that could edge competitors in this fast-growing category.

Mass Fidelity The Core
EDITORS' TAKE

Mass Fidelity The Core

Mass Fidelity's Bluetooth multiroom speaker The Core generates a wide stereo image from a small box, but expect to pay for the privilege.
