AV Rant #286: Tired and Cranky
This week – early morning for one and a cold for another. It’s complaints from both sides of the pond. Onkyo brings you Dolby TrueHD as a download…for a price. You’ll also need one of their brand new receivers to make it work. Samsung has a new display that Liz thinks is overpriced but Tom is still excited about. Here’s a hint – OLED. The new ISP from New Zealand that Tom and Liz discuss has already shut down their new service. Looks like the Kiwis will have to use VPNs to get Pandora like the rest of us. But Global Mode would have been cool. This week in Netflix – does having your content on multiple sources devalue it? Dish Network thinks so. Tom and Liz weigh in. The HBO Go model and why Tom and Liz (and most of you) think it stinks. Tom gives a preview of his Pioneer SE-MJ591 Headphone review. At $300, they aren’t perfect, but they sound pretty awesome.
