Re: The Greatest Audio and Video Products of the 20th Century

I would have to add the Advent 1000 Videobeam. It was the first video projector targeted for the home market. It was home theater before there was home theater, almost 40 years ago.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

I will also add the very first Sony Walkman in 1979



I owned one and it lasted for 6 years. It was the best way to make music portable and not very bulky.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: The Greatest Audio and Video Products of the 20th Century

It wasn't a very broad jump that took us from the turntable (Garrard, VPI and/or Duel Turntable not to mention todays Teres 360) to the Philips Laser Disc Player, CD, DVD and Blu-Ray player.

Today with Solid State Memory..., I would label this a quantum leap forward in what must be 21st Century audio/Video Product with its 20th Century roots.

This is a topic that could easily fill a book..., so far I'm liking it. The thought of writing a book is a little overwhelming though. But it is here I can feel it.

We believe everything we tell ourselves..., don't we??
