If you're new to home theater, you probably don't understand much of the technical jargon included in many equipment reviews. Special features need to be explained in layman's terms so you will understand. To even consider buying new equipment that will cause a strain on your budget, you need proof positive why it's so essential to enhance your movie and music collection.

I can give the technical figures on home theater systems and even do comprehensive testing with expensive equipment in a laboratory under ideal conditions. But what good is information about laboratory testing and ideal conditions? The bottom line concerning audio and video equipment is how it performs in a living room with a sofa, recliner, carpeting and odd shaped walls. My living room is my laboratory and technical specifications include how movies and music sound and feel.

Unique Features
Bill Hecht, founder and chairman of Phase Technology, started building loudspeakers in 1955 and pioneered early speaker technology with patented designs including the widely used soft dome tweeter. In 1978, Bill created the Phase Technology Corporation with the main goal of building high performance loudspeakers. The company produces numerous lines of speakers to fit nearly every application and budget. The newest generation of Phase Technology high fidelity performance speakers is the Velocity series. Named for its streamlined stylized shape and mind-bending accurate performance, this versatile new series includes bookshelf, floor-standing and surround speakers, as well as powered subwoofers.

The highly defined, powerful, performance-oriented Velocity V-10 Premier System delivers great music and movie excitement at an affordable price. The V-10 boasts a pair of two-way V-10 tower speakers at the front, a V-6 center channel, a pair of V-Surround sound speakers and a powerful 250-watt subwoofer with a 10-inch driver. The Velocity V-10 has sleek lines and a contemporary design combined with proprietary technologies to produce unrivaled acoustic performance. The patented soft dome tweeters are well matched to the woofers in each speaker, which are designed for extra long throw and use Phase Technology's proprietary VDT cones. The injection-molded polypropylene cones have an ultra-light layer of Vapor Deposited Titanium for a smooth and extended midrange response, while the long throw design allows the Velocity system to play at high volume levels for extended periods without compressing or breaking up. The one-piece Uniframe speaker basket/baffle assembly forms one of several rigid layers that essentially eliminate the transmission of vibration. The High-Velocity subwoofer matched to the V-10 system features a mica/graphite polypropylene driver, which is extremely rigid yet light enough to produce responsive and accurate floor-shaking bass. The powered sub's amplifier is servo-controlled to digitally adjust output for dynamic, undistorted bass, a gain control, phase switch and variable crossover control are rear mounted above hi-level input binding posts, low-level interconnects, and a separate LFE input. The Velocity V-10 tower speakers and V-6 center channel have paintable metal grilles to match any d�cor and come in two cabinet finishes: Sun Maple and Black Rosewood laminate.
