Sorry I haven't updated here in a while, life has been crazy lately. I did indeed hire an electrician, did the entire basement for $500, as he already had paid for materials on hand. ;)

It's true that downloads are winning because of convenience, and people en mass care less and less about quality.

I do believe that a gradual awakening is happening however. More and more people...

Well back in January I came across a Technics SL-1200 turntable in excellent condition on Craigslist for $300, the bit of research I'd done informed me how much of a steel that was, so I pulled the...

Dolby is really falling down on advertising the fact that Atmos can work with set ups as small as 5.1 or 7.1. More speakers or the modules to put on top of existing speakers are desirable but not...

There may be a cost on black crush. Also I don't see anything about what it does to lumen output, I'm gonna wait for hands on results personally. Also why is this only for the Sony projectors? Seems...

If your doing a 106" screen I'd go with the X35 myself. Pull down the high power for 3D and you'll have a great set up if I read all that right. :)

Well I had a decision to make, and the Sony will fill a 150" screen much more ably than the JVC would have. The room will be a batcave. Black and dark red walls.

Well the Sony is a bit sharper than the JVC even without Reality Creation turned on, but almost negligibly so. With RC on, the JVC can't compete. JVCs with eShift probably can, but I haven't gotten...

"Sound Barrier" is just the name of the product apparently.
