New NAD Master Series
AD has released the Master Series, a new line of separate components that are claimed to set new benchmarks in performance, ease of use and design. Development of the Master Series took several years and the product development team included engineers emeritus Bjorn Erik Edvardsen and Dr Geoffrey Barton. The first four Master Series components are the M15 surround pre-amp processor, the M25 seven-channel power amplifier, the M3 dual mono integrated amplifier, and the M55 universal DVD player. Each component combines a variety of materials and subtle textures that combine to create a fresh and exciting look that matches the performance potential of the components. Internally, the components use glass epoxy circuit boards with thick OFC copper traces, and extensive ground lanes. High current circuits make liberal use of copper buss bars, and all components selected are sourced from top component manufacturers.

anasonic has extended the range of feature-rich Panasonic Lumix digital still cameras available in South Africa. With few exceptions, the new models incorporate the brand's proprietary, newly developed, image processing Venus Engine Plus, which enables exceptional performance in terms of picture quality and shooting response at a dramatically lower energy consumption level. The cameras run on two AA-sized batteries, yet capture higher image quality than their predecessors and also boast a quicker response time. A consecutive shooting function allows you to shoot up to three to four frames per second at full resolution, and also offers an unlimited consecutive shooting function that allows images to be captured consecutively until either the memory card or built-in memory is full. In addition, mega optical image stabiliser technology compensates for camera shake, ease of use is ensured via Simple Mode, and the incorporation of auto angle detection technology, which records whether an image was taken horizontally or vertically, ensures that the images are automatically displayed in their correct orientation during playback.

heir manufacturers describe the new Meridian DSP420 and M420 as truly active in-wall speakers with separate internal amplification for high and low frequency bands. Each speaker uses two amplifiers, one rated at 65 watts for the high frequency driver, and the other at 85 watts for the low frequency driver. The amplifiers use carefully selected bipolar output devices, and the low feedback designs are based on those used in other Meridian loudspeakers to deliver exceptionally fast bass response and high resolution. The DSP420 accepts digital input signals up to 96 kHz/24-bit, including Meridian High Resolution streams from Meridian Surround Controllers, Processors and DVD Players. Other features include position control to compensate for speaker location, FIFO memory buffer at the input for the lowest possible jitter, and a 48-bit resolution volume control. The analogue active version, the M420, features a balanced line-level audio input (which may be unbalanced), with an XLR link from back-box to speaker and analogue crossover.

A sudden rise in atmospheric temperature may cause condensation to form inside the Camcorder. for example: - When you move the Camcorder from a cold location to a warm location (e.g. from outside to inside during winter.) - When you move the Camcorder from a cool location to a hot location (e.g. from inside to outside during the summer.) 2. If the (DEW) protection feature is activated, leave the Camcorder for at least two hours in a dry, warm room with the cassette compartment opened and the Battery pack removed. Notes regarding Camcorder 1. Do not leave the Camcorder exposed to high temperatures (above 60C or 140F). For example, in a parked car in the sun or exposed to direct sunlight. 2. Do not let the Camcorder get wet. Keep the Camcorder away from rain, sea water, and any other form of moisture. If the Camcorder gets wet, it may get damaged. Sometimes a malfunction due to exposure to liquids cannot be repaired. Notes regarding the Battery Pack - Use only an approved Battery pack to replace a Battery pack. - Make sure that the Battery pack is fully charged before starting to record. - To preserve battery power, keep your Camcorder turned off when you are not operating it. - If your Camcorder is in camera mode, and it is left in STBY mode without being operated for more than 5 minutes with a tape inserted, it will automatically turn itself off to protect against unnecessary battery discharge. - Make sure that the Battery pack is fitted firmly into place. Do not drop the Battery pack. Dropping the Battery pack may damage it. - A brand new Battery pack is not charged. Before using the Battery pack, you need to charge it completely. - Fully discharging a Lithium-Ion battery damages the internal cells. The Battery pack may be prone to leakage when fully discharged. Notes regarding the battery pack When the battery reaches the end of its life, please contact your local dealer. The batteries have to be dealt with as chemical waste. Notes regarding the Video Head Cleaning - To ensure normal recording and a clear picture, clean the video heads regularly. If a square block-shape distorts playback, or only a blue screen is displayed, the video heads may be dirty. If this happens, clean the video heads with a dry type cleaning cassette. - Do not use a wet-type cleaning cassette. It may damage the video heads. Note regarding the Lens Do not film with the camera lens pointing directly at the sun. Direct sunlight can damage the CCD(Charge Coupled Device). Notes regarding electronic Viewfinder 1. Do not position the Camcorder such that the Viewfinder is pointing towards the sun. Direct sunlight can damage the inside of the Viewfinder. Be careful when placing the Camcorder under sunlight or near a window exposed to sunlight. 2. Do not pick up the Camcorder by holding the Viewfinder. 3.
