HOME- THEATER LOUDSPEAKER PACKAGE
The Canton Movie 80 CX and Movie 120 MX systems round out the company's small home-theater loudspeaker packages. Both systems combine four small satellite loudspeakers with a matching horizontal center-channel loudspeaker and powerful active subwoofer for full 5.1-channel surround sound. The 80 CX features four identical mini satellites with faces that measure 3.5in. square and 4in. deep. The 120 MX satellites are similar to those in the 80 CX, but with the drivers in a more conventional vertical arrangement rather than a coaxial one. This gives them a height of 4.5in. and an increased cabinet volume for improved linearity and output in the midrange and mid-bass frequency ranges.

SATELLITE RADIO HOME TUNER
The Polk Audio Designs SR-H1000 Sirius component tuner for home audio systems is sized and styled to match standard premium audio components, and it offers analog and digital audio outputs. The addition of an optional SiriusConnect Home Tuner (SCH1) from Directed Electronics allows the SR-H1000 to become a dual audio stream/zone tuner capable of receiving two different Sirius Satellite radio programs at one time. The SR-H1000's Instant Replay feature stores up to 44 minutes of audio for later playback, similar to the way a DVR stores video content.

The R4 and R8 Mini-SAS (MS) storage arrays from Enhance Technology are two new additions to the EnhanceRack rackmount storage line. Designed for maximum hardware compatibility with current SAS or SATA host-based HBAs, the MS series come with the latest Mini-SAS SFF8088 host interface. The R4 MS is a compact, 1RU, four-disk storage system that is specially developed for OEM, VAR, and storage solution providers. The R8 MS is a 2RU, eight-disk storage system that drives the data transfer rate up to 550MBps on RAID 0 and 400MBps on RAID 5, and it can be configured either as a JBOD or as a host bus adapter card dependent RAID storage.
