Escient FireBall E-40 - digital multimedia receiver / CD recorder review: Escient FireBall E-40 - digital multimedia receiver / CD recorder

 

Escient FireBall E-40 - digital multimedia receiver / CD recorder

Simple, TV-based user interface; solid CD burning and ripping; high-end looks and build; many A/V and data ports; Gracenote/CDDB song-title lookup; 40GB hard drive.
