the DigiTheatre performed quite well in
our sound tests and should satisfy the majority looking for a quality sound
Judging by its exterior design, Some improvements
could have been done. Our first consideration for the DigiTheatre would be
adding wall mount support for the front and center speakers, as most wonít
be planning to spend extra money on stands.
The second consideration would definitely have
to be on improving the remote control. Itís little size and weak IR transmission
wonít fulfill its job in big rooms, It should still be enough for people using
the system in little living rooms.
DigiTheatre remains an interesting 5.1 solution, especially for people seeking
an AC-3 setup without having to break their bank accounts. It should definitely
satisfy the masses looking for a companion for their DVD player. AC-3 encoded
movies lead to an experience that is much different than what most us are
used too. Bullets will be flying in the back and explosions will sound amazingly
The DigiTheatre is VideoLogicís average home
theater setup; their newest addition is the DigiTheatre DTS. The new DTS kit
is priced somewhat higher. However, from its specifications should perform
better in most scenes. It uses the same quality satellites as in VideoLogicís
Sirocco Crossfire 4.1 solution, and has a total output of 175W. We will try
to work with this setup in the weeks to come. In the meantime, we definitely
wouldnít have a problem recommending the Digitheatre.
