Robert Heron, noted technologist and co-host of the HD Nation podcast, joins me to answer questions from the chat room after talking a bit about his new home-theater setup with Yamaha AV receiver and Energy Take Classic speakers as well as the new Google Chromecast streamer. Chat-room questions include the Samsung F8500 versus Panasonic VT60 and ZT60 plasmas, how to get big sound in a small room, Onkyo receivers, high-end media streamers, HTPCs and NAS drives, streaming and downloading Ultra HD, lossless audio, Dolby Pro Logic IIz and Audyssey DSX, HDMI switchers, using non-THX-certified speakers with a THX-certified AVR from a home theater in a box, and much more.

The straightforward nature of the information that Robert Heron and Patrick Norton give out on HDNation is fantastic. It's what really made me care about image fidelity. Moving forward I really hope they focus some on audio,which is my next upgrade.
