RC News Story
Monday: Well, here it is a new week. Most of the bugs seem to be worked out of the new server, so it's time to get down to some reviews. But for today, a few small updates. The Denon Aktis as reported on a few days ago is rumored to have a list price of $449 by itself -- but so far this is not substantiated. It will also be packaged with Denon's new top-of-the-line AVR-5800 receiver, which seems to have everything including the kitchen sink.

We're talking killer 170 watts into 7 THX Ultra certified channels, THX Surround EX, DTS Extended Surround Discrete, DTS ES Matrix 6.1, DTS Neo:6 Cinema & Music, DTS, Dolby Digital EX, Pro Logic, THX 4.0 & 5.1, 24-bit 192kHz DACs, 8 S-Video inputs, 3 Composite inputs, 9 digital inputs, 13 analog inputs including tuner, two 7.1 inputs, IEEE 1394 Firewire prepared DSP section, Multi-Zone capability and even more. Whew!

Hot on the heels of the AVR-5800 is the Marantz SR-14EX receiver, which will be where the Marantz RC5000i makes its first debut. What's changed? We'll have to wait and see, but it looks like a good part of battle for supreme receiver will be in the remote control department. Finally!

UCommand: Crisp solutions has a new special for Remote Central visitors on their well-received LCD remote control. Visit this page for full details.

Teleport Pro: Just a quick warning for anyone using the utility entitled "Teleport Pro": I've been informed by the system administrator that the only reason a group of IPs will be banned is due to use of this program, which creates unreasonable and unbalanced loads on the server and also generates many bogus requests.
