Corsair Vengeance 1300 & 1500 Gaming Headsets Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 9:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Headsets that claim to be made for the gaming market may be a dime a dozen but finding one that performs well and does so at a reasonable price, isn`t all that easy. Corsair`s new analog Vengeance 1300 and USB-based 1500 on the other hand each offer their own unique spin on the affordable headset genre by retailing for under $100 but still seem to provide features that enthusiasts are looking for."

Corsair Vengeance 1300 Analog Gaming Headset
     Mon, Jan 02 2012 | 1:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If it wasn`t for the severe lack of bass, then these headphones would be at the top of my list for their price range. While the comfort and build quality are definitely there, the audio performance averages out to just decent. The clarity of the range of sound that the Vengeance 1300 is capable of producing is without a question very good; if gaming is your only concern then this $80 headset just might fit your bill."

Aperion Audio Intimus 4T Tower Speaker Review @MissingRemote
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creating the right audio environment is a critical part of enabling an immersive home theater experience, but is often neglected either due to ignorance or the erroneous assumption that good sound is unattainably expensive. The process of finding the right speakers is made even more difficult with few shops providing an adequate listening environment, let alone one with options in an affordable price range. Speaker manufacturer Aperion Audio has a solution for these issues, offering their 150 watt, $550/pair Intimus 4T tower alongside a no-risk thirty day trial with shipping covered both ways, so they can be tested in the actual environment where they will see use. *"

Arctic Cooling Arctic Sound E 461-BM Earphones Review @ APH
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 6:45P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you live in a city as spontaneous as Calgary, you would not be surprised by how fast summer quickly turns to winter. Just a few days ago (More specifically, Halloween), I crawled out of bed being greeted with a small patch of snow. We all know the feeling, waking up praying for it to be a beautiful day, only to find the opposite. For Calgary, however, you tend to prepare for the worst before you hope for the best. Much like summer and winter, the world of audio also has two very different ends of the spectrum. No, I am not talking about good audio equipment versus bad audio equipment ordeal, but more along the lines of how audio equipment is tested. On one end, we have objectivists who rely on technical and engineering information as well as experience to test audio devices. On the other end, we have subjectivists who rely on the careful process of individual listening and time to rate a device`s worth. Which method is more correct? Well, neither. But since we here at APH Networks are Canadian, we tend to think both methods are right to a certain degree, but we do certainly lean more towards the subjectivist`s way of doing things. Is it because we are not comprised of sound engineers? Possibly. But I believe the main reason is, just because you can spout out information regarding the performance of a pair of earphones using the laws of physics, doesn`t necessarily mean the device sounds -- for lack of a better term -- good. Today, we just may or may not have this slippery slope upon our feet. Arctic Cooling`s new Arctic Sound E461-BM may look quite impressive on paper, boasting amazing performance in the linearity of the earphones frequency response, but how do they sound? Itching to hear what I heard? Well, for that, you will need to purchase the earphones. But for now, I can scratch that itch for you if you read on."

C. Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance the overall feel of the fit and finish is really nice to hold and wear which is very important for a headset. With good quality plastic and a large padded headband, it`s also clear straight away that the ear cups are going to be comfortable and that the padding is more than enough. Interestingly, the 1500 features the soft fabric ear pads we prefer, while the `lower end` model, the 1300 does not; instead using the faux leather stuff seen everywhere these days. The Vengeance 1500 also features software support including Dolby Headphone which is fantastic. The interface is slick and fast with some nice graphics also being used to give everything a very up to date feel. This software is really the heart of the this package and should be the main selling point given how well it works, yet Corsair do not seem that excited about it for some reason. But to any potential buyer of this headset, just try listening without the software installed and you will see how well it works and frankly is needed to make this a recommended product."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
