Integra ships 9-channel DTA-70.1 amp for home theater

Posted in Home Theater by Shane McGlaun on March 31st, 2010


I like home theater stuff, but I don’t have tons of high-end gear in my entertainment center. I wouldn’t spend thousands on an amplifier for instance to get sound that was better.

If you are serious about your home theater, Integra has a new amp that is made with quality components at a price you might not expect. The DTA-70.1 has 150W of power on each of its 9-channels and is THX-Ultra2 certified.

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2010

If you need a headphone amp, Audio Technica has a special one just for you. The AT-HA35i amp includes a D/A converter that supports 192 kHz/24bit audio, along with a max output of 440mWx2, 20-20kHz frequency response and support for 32kHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz sampling.

But what makes this one unique is that it has a built-in iPod dock. Pretty cool no? It even packs in RCA, S-Video, and digital audio outputs in back to connect it to your other devices. Obviously it will cost you. Expect to pay about $560 when it arrives in Japan next month.

AC/DC Box Set includes a working guitar ampAC/DC knows how to rock and they have never slowed down. Only a super hard rocking band like them could put out a Box Set like this, which has to be the best Box Set ever. AC/DC’s Backtracks package obviously looks like a guitar amp. But take a closer look.

The top of the box is actually a working 1-watt guitar amplifier. This mini-amp won’t Shake Your Foundations, or even bother the neighbors, but who cares. It’s a real amplifier. You can’t get that on iTunes people. For $199 you get three CDs and two DVDs of rare tracks from the band, a 12-inch vinyl LP, a bunch of memorabilia and a 164-page hardbound book.

Mighty Mini Boom Box and Amp speakersThese speakers may be small enough to fit on a keychain, but they pack some power. These little speakers are more than powerful enough to use when listening to your MP3s on the go. Just plug your iPod or MP3 player into the 3.5-mm audio jack.

Each version has a built in USB-rechargeable battery pack that will give you enough juice for about 2.5 hours of playback time. That’s pretty impressive for the size. They’ll cost you $25. Small speakers, big sound. What more do you want?

HifiMAN HM-801 PMP

HifiMAN HM-801 PMPThe HifiMAN HM-801 portable media player (PMP) is a different kind of PMP. It combines a Burr-Brown PCM1704 DAC and a OPA627 op-amp in a single modular unit that lets you use your own amplifier if you want. Supposedly sound quality isn’t compromised as it features full support for FLAC and lossless WMA.

Keep in mind that it lacks video support, media-related features and internal storage all together, so make sure you have a ton of SDHC memory cards if you want to use the retro-ly named HifiMAN HM-801.

Amp follows you around, plays your tunesThis bot makes Sony’s Rolly look like the lame dancing egg that it is. AMP stands for Automated Music Personality, from Hasbro’s Tiger Electronics and Sega Toys, and it’s here to dance, follow you around with music and look just plain awesome.

It’s got Segway-like legs that dance to the beat of any MP3 player via a 3.5mm jack. Also sports 49 LEDs that shine nicely too, because bots have to have lights. The A.M.P. has touch-sensitive DJ scratching pads and 62 sound effects built in so you can jazz up your songs, and an IR sensor so he will follow you from room to room and keep the music with you at all times.

It seems that the guitar mania that has engulfed the geek world with games like Guitar Hero and Rockband is here to stay. So you may as well embrace it and get yourself this iPod speaker amp. You probably already have the Guitar Rocker and the catbox 360 after all. I’m sure this will make your life complete.

Just plug in your MP3 player and you are ready. It’s not just for your mp3 player either, you can also use it as a computer speaker. It has working treble and bass knobs and a 5-watt output. It can be powered from your computer via USB, or by using 3 AAA batteries.
