A new realm emerges when Richcoln has created a new-generation AVB digital home theatre to set an example for the industry
Having based its mainstream business in high-end audio, Richcoln Company Ltd not only continues strengthening its array of pure audio products but has also been active in development of high-end audio/video systems. Over the last year Richcoln's Home Entertainment Centre has undergone a reconstruction project that has taken almost a year to complete. This marks the beginning of a new home theatre to incorporate new-generation AVB (Audio Video Bridging) networked digital audio signal transmission technology for integration into A/V systems. It now leads the tide towards comprehensive operation of networked A/V systems.
"Audiotechnique", as Hong Kong's most highly circulated and authoritative audio journal, was naturally invited to Richcoln's showroom to experience this innovative digital home theatre. A comment is given that AVB networked audio data transmission technology creates realistic 3D surround effects. The whole system features extremely low coloration, balanced sound free of audible distortion even at high sound pressure level. The trouser- shaking low end is overwhelming. Each of the AVB interfaced Ascendo loudspeakers has a built-in 1000W power amplifier to cope with such wide dynamics. In addition, the factory configured system control software is incomparable in its timing and phase precision. The outstanding performance of this home theatre surely elevates Richcolns status in the market of home theatres.

An important figure in high-end valve amplifier manufacturing, Octave Audio launched its latest, most mentioned valve power amplifier RE320 at the Munich High-End Show venue this year. This has arisen from its use of the most sought-after new generation valves - KT150 by Tung-Sol. Following the introduction of KT150 in the V80 SE integrated amplifier, these power valves are finally implemented in power amplifiers. The RE320 was flown directly to Hong Kong soon after its Munich debut and delivered to HiFi Review's sound room. The evaluation was conducted by River Chan, the Editor, whose understanding of the KT150 power tube and Octave Audio's previous style of valve amplifier design is noted. On auditioning the RE320, he noticed a change in sound tuning, obviously in the right direction. The RE320 has borrowed technology for developing the Jubilee power amplifier in its design, while incorporating the SE-concept power supply system and highly professional wide bandwidth transformers dedicated to the development of SE (Special Edition) models. The combination of KT150 power tubes enriches the RE320 with superb driving power and control thus enabling it to easily drive inefficient and power-hungry loudspeakers. One can have a clear picture of the RE320 stereo valve power amplifier, which embodies Octave's latest audio technology by reading River Chan's report.

Alex, contributing reviewer of Super AV audio magazine, praised this innovative concept wholeheartedly after having experienced Richcoln's recently completed AVB digital home theatre. He reckoned frankly that it was the best sound ever experienced via networked transmission and was deeply impressed. He noticed unheard subtleties and widened dynamics, free of harshness and inflexibility. Rendition of vocals, instruments and all kinds of sound effects was highly accurate. This is a breakthrough in networked playback systems and the greatest strength of AVB. The comprehensive technical analysis of Alex's article is worth careful reading. It enables us to further understand the superiority of home theatres adopting innovative AVB networked transmission technology, which is destined to be a mainstream solution to high-end theatre design.....

Richcoln Company Ltd - Hong Kong's first audio distributor to have installed an AVB digital home theatre system
Situated at Shiu On Centre in Wanchai, Richcoln's showroom has been upgraded to accommodate an all new home theatre system. Featuring a different concept from the conventional home theatre, this system combines the latest AVB technology with active coaxial loudspeakers by Ascendo of Germany.
What is AVB? AVB is an abbreviation of Audio/Video Bridging. It conforms to the new IEEE802 norm. Based on conventional Ethernet it supports transmission of wide bandwidth, low-latency and accurate time synchronized multimedia audio / video signals. Upon completion of upgrades, local and Mainlander press invited to experience the outcome were amazed and deeply impressed. The following article by AV Frontline, a renowned audio magazine in China, is a review of our AVB home theatre, which provides a glimpse of this advanced home theatre, its sound characters and how this innovative digital networked audio transmission brings us spectacular scenes hitherto experienced - free of time delay and phase anomalies, realistic, precise imaging, well defined layering and embracing stereo soundstage.

The early CAS equipment induced resistance of typical audiophiles owing to its incompetent performance. Seeing that the latest media playback products have matured, and popularized, Hi-Fi Review's contributing reviewer Archimedes considers this the right time for CAS opponents to change their prejudice. A few years ago Burmester introduced a 111 Musiccenter music server that remains a flagship class to date. The newly launched 151 Musiccenter becomes an attraction, with a less than halved price tag, the same functionality, simpler configuration. It inherits a graceful, brilliant, sweet, warm and direct sound character peculiar to Burmester, retrieving everything that is truthful. The description in Archimedes' article not only provides a detailed evaluation of its functionality and sonic performance, but also appeals to those who are still watching, "It is time you set foot to invest on CAS!"
