Mirroring your computer onto any HDMI display with Airtame wireless dongle

Here’s yet another option for wirelessly mirroring your computer screen to another display, but don’t worry: This one is rather impressive. Airtame, the creation of a group of Danish folks, is an HDMI dongle that links your PC — be it running Windows, OS X or Linux — to whatever display it’s plugged into over WiFi. Installation is a breeze: All you need on the PC side is just the software, and from there you can choose which dongles to beam your screen to. Yes, dongles, because you really can beam one PC to multiple screens, thus beating Miracast. We also played a game on one of the laptops, and the response time on the remote display was surprisingly good.

hdmi optical cable

Have seen remarks here that “all optical cables sound alike” because “they all transmit 0′s and 1′s,” etc. That’s true, but it’s also true that coax transmits the same 0′s and 1′s. Coax cables sound different, and so do opticals. It’s not digits, folks, it’s the materials used, echoes, resonance, impedance matching, clock timing/jitter, etc., etc. These AR’s do have a cleaner, clearer, more detailed sound than their more expensive Monster Lightspeed counterparts (which are generally awful). Considering the price, this AR cable is quite good; a clean high end, nice midrange, very decent soundstage in width and depth. There are rave reviews here for these AR’s – I can’t justify a 4 or 5 rating here.

 On high end equipment, they sound clean but too lean, the very low end being detailed and tight but not as ‘there’ as the rest of the spectrum. A (very) mild hardness in the upper midrange, especially on female voices. The lead-in of instrumental attack is a little sloppy (piano, drums, guitar, etc.), often making some piano keys sound as if they need to be screwed down tighter or something. On lesser audio systems (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.) the AR’s did acquit themselves quite well. Give them a 4 in cheapo systems, but with mid-fi or higher their faults become amplified. Still, at $35 they present a good, well-focused soundstage and sounded mighty nice on my older (cheapo) system, which typically had bloated bass and wiry highs that this cable handled well. For high-end gear, unfortunately, they won’t do. I have to add points to the AR’s overall rating, however, because of their very good DVD picture playback. In that respect, the AR’s were far superior in DVD playback to the over-priced junk being sold by Monster nowadays. On my audio system I have better, pricier cables, but these AR’s have found a permanent home on my Toshiba DVD video player.

Mid-2010 Macbook sets Audio Output for HDMI

Although Apple found that it wasn’t necessary to issue an official report confirming recent hardware upgrades to its popular, 13-inch, polycarbonate MacBook, the company did post a document online pointing out to newly added support for audio and video output via its Mini DisplayPort, enabling users to connect to an HDMI HDTV using a cable, or adapter.

Support document HT4167, entitled “MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2010): External ports and connectors,” aims to inform customers about the available ports and connectors on the new MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2010). The Mac maker shows a picture of the device with the side housing the connectors blown up for a better view. Below the image, a table is provided with the names of the ports (left side, back to front) and what each of them does (reproduced below).

MagSafe power port – Plug in the included 60W MagSafe Power Adapter to recharge the MacBook battery.

Gigabit Ethernet port (10/100/1000Base-T) – Connect to a high-speed Ethernet network, a DSL or cable modem, or another computer. The Ethernet port automatically detects Ethernet devices and doesn’t require an Ethernet crossover cable.

Mini DisplayPort (video out) – Connect to an external display, projection device, or TV that uses a DVI, HDMI (audio and video)1 or VGA connector with a separate adapter. You can purchase adapters for supported video formats from Apple.

Two high-speed USB (Universal Serial Bus) 2.0 ports – Connect a modem, iPod, iPhone, mouse, keyboard, printer, disk drive, digital camera, joystick, and more to your MacBook. You can also connect USB 1.1 devices.

Audio out port – Connect external speakers, headphones (including iPhone), or digital audio equipment to use a line-level microphone or analog equipment. Specify the audio line in functionality using Sound system preferences.

Security Slot – Attach a lock and cable (available separately) to prevent theft.

Softpedia reported yesterday that Apple had quietly updated the offerings on its web store with a new-model MacBook. Still a base configuration, the device retains the 2GB of standard memory, but gains a higher clocked CPU – 2.4GHz (Intel Core 2 Duo), and NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics with 256MB of memory (shared). The device also features an improved LED-backlit display, and ships with the newly introduced AC adapter.

Before the device was confirmed, our site reported that Vietnam was again the source of an Apple leak – particularly, the new MacBook model. On May 17th, Vietnamese forum Tinhte.com posted images and a video of a yet-unreleased MacBook computer. The system became available for immediate purchase the next day.

Sony introduced the first 3D sound for home theater

Sony introduced three new upcoming products for its audio lineup this Wednesday, all of which offer to bring so-called 3D sound to the home.

These new 3D audio products, which are a first for Sony, include two soundbars and a home theater system. Going by the names of HT-CT150 and HT-CT350, the two soundbars will provide 3.1 3D audio, with the HT-SF470 home theater system offering up 5.1 3D delights.

All three of these offerings are surprisingly reasonably priced. The 340-watt HT-CT150 will set you back just $300, and is a soundbar designed to attach to Sony’s 2010 32-inch Bravia TVs. The HT-CT350, which comes in at $400, is designed to match Sony sets that are 40 inches or larger. The final new offering, the HT-SF470 will set buyers back $550 and features a 1000-watt 5.1 surround sound system. Those who choose to pick up the top-of-the-line model will get wireless floor-standing front and rear speakers, a subwoofer, an HDMI repeater, 3 HDMI inputs, and more.
