With the “Big Game” over and the promise of warmer temperatures on the horizon, we now turn our attention to the great outdoors. It’s time to start thinking about what we’re doing with our outdoor entertainment areas. Maybe it’s not quite time to clean the pool, but we can consider our poolside electronics setup. And what better place to start than with an...

There are a few things to take into consideration when shopping for speakers. First and foremost, you need to consider the size of your space. For the most part, large spaces require large speakers, and inversely, smaller spaces are best served with smaller speakers. Speakers too small for a room can sound tinny and diminutive is a cavernous space, while speakers too big for a room can will...

TVs are among the most integral parts of our living room and fam-cave spaces. I say this without hyperbole because it’s the one piece of electronics toward which we face all our furniture. Maybe your cable/satellite box, receiver, Blu-ray player, or gaming console is in that direction also, but it’s the TV to which we truly direct our visual attention. We don’t want it off to the side, in our...

Experiencing double vision when purchasing a television? It's a process that can be as stressful and as life-consuming as anticipating a birth. Okay, that may be overstating it a little bit. But just a little bit. Both decisions will cost you. Both things will bring noise and confusion into your house. Both will require a lot of love and attention. But only one will return that love and attention...

As stubborn as it can be, winter always ends. For a while there it seems as if the cold weather isn’t quite ready to bid its farewell, but literally like clockwork, along comes spring and, with it, our desire to tidy things up a bit. As we let more sunlight into homes and bask in the delight of warmer weather, it’s only natural that we look around and begin to visualize a neater and more...

As the Big Game nears, it's OK to admit you've been looking at a new TV. It's completely natural; sporting events look great in HD, especially freshly purchased HD, and if you're having friends and family over, your TV will be the center of attention—it and maybe the buffalo wings. The fact of the matter is, it's easy to justify a new TV purchase this time of year because newly released models...

If you walked into a car dealership and blurted out, “Sell me a motor vehicle,” the salespeople would hopefully spend a little time qualifying you as a customer before shepherding you into an office to sign paperwork. This also isn’t an effective way to buy speakers for your home. There are just too many options that serve totally different needs. This article will help you pinpoint your personal...

Whether you're watching the Big Game with friends, family, or all by yourself, there are a couple of key essentials for having a good time: a comfortable setting, solid TV setup, and plenty of quality snacks. But if you're looking to make your watch party truly memorable, you might need to call an audible or two to go beyond merely the status quo. To help you out, we've compiled a list of tech...

We are so past baby monitors these days. There used to be a time when a good baby monitor with two-way audio (what was the baby going to do, we wondered—tell us why they're gassy at 2:00 in the morning?) was expensive, difficult to set up, and easily interfered with. These days, with advances made in home surveillance, you can probably hook yourself up with an indoor security camera and just as...

Remember when Google was associated only with how you navigated the Web? It wasn’t too long ago that the software giant decided to enter the hardware game, catching the attention of nearly everyone. When the king of search makes a move, heads turn. Google’s hardware release was fairly modest for a company of its size, releasing a slow drip of Internet-connected devices over the past few years....

When you hear the term “home theater accessory,” it’s natural to think of the usual suspects: universal remote controls, high-speed HDMI cables, maybe an advanced surge protector or articulating wall mount. Those accessory options are perfectly fine and, depending on your setup, that item may just be what your gear needs to take its performance to new dimensions. After all, that’s what we’re...

One of my favorite things about this time of year is “best of” lists. You can find them for nearly every product category, ranging from smartphones, computers, headphones, and of course, one of my personal favorites—televisions. Not only do I enjoy manufacturers receiving the accolades they deserve, but I also have a fondness for looking back at some of the year’s best tech. In my line of work, I...

With so many great TVs and home theater displays on the market these days, it can be difficult to create a “Best Of” list. Even if today’s TVs have a lot in common, some models certainly have more standout features and impressive specs than others. With CES now well behind us and the new models rolling out to store shelves, I thought this would be a good time to compile a list of TVs and displays...

Spring cleaning time is here, and it’s time to clean up your home theater room. You’ve already replaced the dozen or so remotes you have for all your devices with a universal remote, swapped your old component video cables with HDMI, and tied them all up neatly behind your components. Are you finished, though? With cleaning and de-cluttering your viewing area, maybe, but how about maximizing your...
