    DisplayLink + LG, Sending Video Signals Over USB Like It's Going Out of Style

    Sending video monitor signals over USB? No, you’re not dreaming an unattainable dream, but looking at pics of the first monitor here in the U.S. that works over a USB cable.

    Green Apple = Better Monitors for You

    It’d be nice to think that Steve Jobs is a tree-humping hippie. Ok, maybe he is. He’s from California, after all, and in a note he left on Apple’s Hot News site about making Apple more earth-friendly, he mentions that company will be transitioning all of its monitors from backlit LCDs to more eco-friendly LED monitors, among other green actions. This kicks much ass. Not only is… Read More

    M-Audio Studiophile AV40 Monitors Hands On

    Recording and engineering music is a difficult process. For years I’ve dabbled in producing my own songs and music. Nothing too serious, but enough to warrant the purchase of some equipment and software. However, one key component of my recording setup that I have been missing for years is a decent pair of studio monitors. When I was at CES 2007, I was shown a pair of AV40 Studiophile… Read More

  • LCD + BB Gun = Art

    http://flash.revver.com/player/1.0/player.swf As much as we love the gear we cover, we still like to see it get abused sometimes. Who hasn’t taken their busted-ass phone and thrown it from a parking garage to see the plastic splash pattern it leaves behind? Yah, we know you have. It has something to do with the pre-teen urge to blow up your G.I. Joes with firecrackers, we think. We… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Samsung's Mobiles, Kodak's Colors And A Wireless Router That Launches Missiles

    Hooray for Tuesday! It’s now the morning of January 9 and I’m headed to a 9 a.m. meeting with Samsung Mobile, but my cab takes the Strip to get to the LVCC making me late. (In case you missed the previous entries, here are Jan. 7 and Jan. 8, parts one and two.) Despite the continued accolades heaped upon Samsung’s phones by others, I’ve always been a bit sour on them. Great… Read More

    M-Audio's New AV20, AV30, and AV40 Speakers

    M-Audio invited us to check out their new line of speakers in a sweet hotel suite so the acoustics were proper.

The AV30 and AV40 both come with input and output 3.5mm jacks on the front. They’ll be available in about a… Read More

    Stanton Gets Active With ATM.6

    The Stanton ATM.6 Active Monitor is developed specifically for DJs with home studios, so if you’ve got a high-end professional setup, look elsewhere for monitors. For everyone else, the ATM.6 monitors are great home studio additions. The big difference between the ATM.6 monitors and most other monitors is that they’re active, which means the little amplifiers inside the monitors are… Read More
