NATO & USAF Sentry changes

AS A RESULT of the decreasing world threat, the USAF has cut back overseas deployment of its 552nd ACW Boeing E-3B/C Sentries at forward operating bases. The single Sentry of the 960th ACS at Keflavik, Iceland and one of the three stationed with the 961st ACS at Okinawa, Japan, will return to the USA and join one of the 552nd’s four squadrons at Tinker AFB, Oklahomo. Approximately 234 personnel will also return home.

A long-awaited contract to upgrade NATOs fleet of 17 E-3A Sentries is finally expected to be awarded in May to Boeing Defense and Space Group. The first

NATURAL HABITAT

Look out of the huge floor-to-ceiling windows of Anna Mossberg and her husband’s contemporary Swedish villa and you’ll see a scattering of islands and the occasional deer. It’s hard to believe that Stockholm is less than 20 minutes away by car. ‘This island is so close to the city, yet it’s completely rural, with meadows and pastures sloping down to the sea,’ explains Anna. ‘That’s why we were so keen to build a house that makes the most of the beautiful landscape.’

The peaceful setting was already familiar to Anna. Before they met, her husband was living alone on the

NAPP MEMBER COMMUNITY

BY LARRY BECKER

Where you’ll find notable member achievements, quotes from Twitter, and inspirational work from your fellow members

The East Coast Photoshop World event in Orlando was a week of inspiration, education, and entertainment, and above everything else, it let NAPP members connect with the industry and one another. The show was absolutely great and the expo was awesome, too. There were contests, industry announcements, and all kinds of news that came out of Central Florida. But most importantly, there was training in classrooms and in expo theaters that filled the brains of all our attendees to their maximum

National Pro Fastpitch

The Comets have no home field. They practice at Rutgers and play their local games at four minor league baseball stadiums scattered between Pomona, New York, and Allentown, Pennsylvania, in order to reach die maximum word of mouth audience. Fans wishing to save on gas can listen to radio broadcasts of the games online, as I sometimes do, dirough the Web site of the Christmas City Broadcasting Network. A word of warning: Barry Eisenberg, the play by play man, doesn’t sugarcoat. «I am not making this up, folks: a bunt double», he said, in the middle of a dispiriting onslaught

СРАВНИТЕЛЬНОЕ ТЕСТИРОВАНИЕ ЧЕТЫРЕХДИСКОВЫХ NAS

Четырехдисковые NAS-серверы — серьезные решения. А потому критерии выбора данного устройства должны быть взвешенными. И если ты надумал приобрести такое хранилище, то наш сравнительный тест тебе в помощь!

Для того чтобы узнать максимальную производительность четырехдисковых серверов, мы установили винчестеры в режим RAID 0. А вот массив RAID 5, в свою очередь, продемонстрировал нам, насколько быстро система справляется с чередованием и «невыделенным диском четности».

ASUSTOR AS-604T

Внешне AS-604T выглядит лаконично, устройство спокойно впишется в рамки любого интерьера. Передняя панель пластиковая, но имеет матовую фактуру. Из примечательных особенностей отметим наличие USB 3.0 порта с клавишей быстрого резервного копирования,

Names with wings

ITS TITLE IS curious (but probably the best available, considering the content) and the frontispiece of a Greek warrior donning armour implies one may have picked up a book on ancient history by mistake. After that, it gets better by the page.

The system — or, more recently, perhaps, the lack thereof — of allocating names to British military aircraft and their engines is not a subject for the superficial aircraft enthusiast, but those with a serious interest will find this book to be a mine of information. The Greek gentleman could be Hercules, Hector or Lysander (we are not

Naim Ovator S-400

£3650

Naim doesn’t really make weak products, but it’s fair to say that its speakers — unlike its pretty universally applauded electronics — rather divide opinion. It’s their strong sonic flavour, which emphasises timing and agility over tonal faithfulness, refinement and stereo imaging that means they’re not to everyone’s taste.

The Ovator S-400s are here to change things.

Moving the crossover point

The key is a Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver, which has such a wide frequency range that it eliminates the need for a crossover in the 2-3kHz area most traditional designs occupy. By putting the crossover point in

NAIM NAIT XS 2

£1595

We loved the original Nait XS. It occupied a sweet spot between the entry-level 5i and the high-end SuperNait. And it was probably our favourite integrated amplifier from the company. Good news: the Nait XS 2 is a success. It’s very much like the original Nait XS, which can only be a good thing.

What grabs you immediately is its sheer musicality. It encourages you to listen and enjoy your music instead of analysing it. We could go on about the interplay of drums and piano on Muse’s Endlessly, but we found ourselves focusing on the Naim’s ability to

ДОСТОИНСТВА

Фронтальный стереовход

Возможность работы в мостовом режиме

НЕДОСТАТКИ

Отсутствует коаксиальный цифровой вход, по USB не читаются файлы 24/192

КОНСТРУКЦИЯ

Усилитель С375ВЕЕ мы протестировали ровно 3 года назад, а сегодня представляем его модификацию со встроенным ЦАПом. Внешность аппарата осталась прежней, без особых претензий на эксклюзив. Дизайн тяготеет к традиционному для фирмы NAD: на пепельно-сером фасаде сложного профиля все органы управления — круглые. Это шеренга кнопок, обеспечивающих прямой доступ к источникам, а также регуляторы НЧ/ВЧ-тембров, баланса и громкости. Дисплей отсутствует, о силе звука можно судить по расположению светодиода на большой поворотной рукояти. Для любителей чистого звучания предусмотрена кнопка Tone Defeat, отключающая

Усилитель C375BEE мы протестировали ровно 3 года назад, а сегодня представляем его модификацию со встроенным ЦЛПом. Внешность аппарата осталась прежней, без особых претензий на эксклюзив.
