4.0 out of 5 stars Great blend of traditional and modern, April 12, 2004
I searched high and low for the perfect Tapas book for my wife. She loves this one. Beautiful pictures, great recipes and not too many really-hard-to-find ingredients. Give this one a try.
I only gave it four stars instead of five because not every recipe in the book has a corresponding photo. Sometimes you have to use your imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Machine - Simple and Elegant, July 15, 2002
I just got this system two days ago. I have only had time to watch one movie (Black Hawk Down) so I don't believe I have had adequate time to test the limits of the DVX-S100. However, I wanted to share my initial thoughts and perhaps come back with an update later.
My experience thus far has been great. The system hardware is very easy to set up, the speakers simply plug into the sub-woofer. Use a component video cable to connect your TV and you are ready to go. The unit has advanced on-screen programming menus that are very easy to use. Maximize your home theatre system by configuring the software correctly to match your TV and the room (placement of speakers, etc). This only takes a few minutes and its very easy to do on this system.
The CD player benefits from a high-end Faroudja chip (Dcdi - usually found in more expensive DVD players). This outputs a progressive scan signal that flat-out rocks on a Hi-scan or HD-ready TV. Also, the cd player appears to play almost all current formats (except SuperAudio), meaning it will handle MP3, CD-RW, DVD-audio, etc.
There are enough inputs to add standard items such as satellite TV and/or digital cable. There is even an input for a mini-disc player or some other digital component.
The speakers are well matched and well-balanced. The system is a bit atypical in set-up though as the amp is in the subwoofer. All this means is that you can't easily change speakers down the road (at least not the sub). And speaking of the amp, this is what everyone will criticize because it only drives about 35 watts per channel. But the speakers are very efficient and they sound louder and stronger than comparable systems that claim to pump more watts. In an average size room (or especially a smaller room) this system cranks.
In summary, at this price you are getting excellent circuitry, style, elegance and simplicity that looks and sounds great. For me it is the perfect combo of price and features in a compact system.
