KEF LS50

£800

The Rose Gold finish of the Uni-Q driver, along with the curved front panel, gives the LS50s an unmistakable look.

We don’t generally get excited about anniversary products. Often more marketing driven than worthwhile product, they tend to be either overly retro to hark back to when the company started, or a technological exercise so advanced that no-one can actually afford them. Not so the KEF LS50s.

The classic Uni-Q driver array

The LS50s, naturally, feature a version KEF’s Uni-Q driver array. Here it consists of a 25mm dome tweeter sitting inside a 13cm magnesium/ aluminium-coned mid/bass unit. The

Brown Rayner against the total Annigilyantov we’ll think of something!

Authors Dank Reign and Total Annihilation about their games, about each other, about the future of RTS-genre …

From the Dark Reign, that is, Activision and Auran answers to our questions REZNIK Josh (Josh Resnick), a direct participant of the Dark Reign, a leading designer Actitvision. With Josh our girls met in London at ESTC. He was very glad to get acquainted with the Russian journalist and strongly touts them to visit our booth and tell us about the game. However, due to the absolute indifference favorite kvestomanok to strategic games in general and in particular RTS, the invitation was

The Big Bang Theory

Stephen Hawking once compared humanity with a small fish who has to learn a great and terrible reality of the world through the distorting convex wall of the aquarium. Please find in what some very unusual enlightened minds were able to see behind this glass. Only carefully. Theoretical science is very explosive — changing consciousness. And do not say we did not warn you.

Solipsism

Here you sit, not bothering anyone, reading magazine. The eye distinguishes bukovki black on a white background. And how does he do it? Where does this bizarre vision of the game of contrasts? You say

Keeping trim

Way back when, when I tested the Makita 3601B, I described it as a stopgap, suggesting that an old, very basic USA router had been launched in the UK as a knee-jerk reaction to the likes of Bosch. That model appears no longer to be available on Makita’s website.

This time round Makita has bided its time to come up with a small combination router that rivals the DeWalt D26204 and the Bosch GFK 600. Makita has certainly assessed the market well this time, and covered all the bases, choosing to offer this mode! as a basic trimmer with an

The Zero Theorem.

"This is a mess!" Terry Gilliam so hello. Last EMPIRE met him 15 months ago. Then the director was sitting in London, he directed his still abundant energy to create short films and hoping to revive the body trembling, «Don Quixote.» Now, on a cold morning in November 2012, we found a 72-year-old director in a large Baroque house in the center of Bucharest (the building sold for $ 4 million, although obviously in need of repair). Gilliam is the monitor, which is raised on an old ceramic oven in a small office. Behind his back, staring at us from

KEEPING BEES SHOULD APPEAL TO WATCH COLLECTORS AS THE WINGED WORKFORCE FOLLOWS AN AMAZINGLY ACCURATE TIME SCHEDULE ACROSS THE SEASONS. THIS YEAR IS A VERY GOOD TIME TO GET INVOLVED IN APIARY.

As winter turns to spring, beekeepers begin to swarm. Apiary associations up and down the UK hold training sessions at which old hands reveal to newcomers the secrets of keeping apis mellifora, the highly productive European or Western honey bee.

If you have ever thought about having a hive or two, now is the season to get involved. Taking its lead from the bees’ well-organised social order, The British Beekeepers Association has a network linking its 20,000-plus members. With a passion that rivals the watch aficionados of the CW Forum, the beekeeping community is keen to spread the word about

The dark side of Google Glass

The latest invention of Google — augmented reality glasses, known simply as the Glass, — has not even gone on sale, but, apart from the interest excited by the opportunity to look into the future, they cause a hot controversy. Around Glass launched a campaign «Stop cyborg» in West Virginia has drafted legislation banning their use while driving, the device is already banned in a bar in Seattle.

Eight thousand users, Google Glass-equipped glasses and wearing the title of «testers Glass *, ready to begin experiments to find out what you can and can not do with them; their reactions

Darkness on the edge of town

Born a generation later, fueled by underground movements both ends of the musical spectrum, Clutch — it is the faithful, whose sound attracts a legion of fans from around the world. We went to Motown to unravel the mysteries of the cult rock band.

The expansion of the once-living organism there is a stage when the skeleton has become so clean that sparkling white distracts from everything that he ever was, or pretended to. For big cities it is also true.

If ever there was, and the «American dream», then Detroit, also known as Motor City, home of Motown —

KAWASAKI ZX-14R

Unfortunately for me, Kawasaki recently noticed a rather conspicuous absence from its press feet, and has asked for the ZX-14R back. This bike has been a riot on a daily basis and has consistently delivered, regardless of what I’ve asked it to do. Our time together hasn’t ended on bad terms, nor have I had my fill of the ’14, either. In fact, I’ve already started shopping for softly crashed examples in hopes of purchasing one for a more significant project. It’s not surprising that there are few to choose from. This isn’t a bike folks tend to flip—not literally,

Tatiana Dronina: NATURE OF MOMENTUM

We met in the theater, for Tatiana Doronina Gorky Moscow Art Theater is not just a place of work, and a second home. and maybe even the first. After all, she created the theater, almost three decades, holds it in his hands as the artistic director, jealously preserving the Russian classical tradition, and, in addition, put on plays as a director and comes on stage as an actress, for starters, how hospitable mistress of his house, Doronin told about his office, where she spends the lion’s share of time. Here, all-time favorite. Photo by Mikhail Bulgakov, near Bulgakov images of
