AV Rant #401: Budget Speaker Recommendations
Special thanks to Niels and Todd for supporting the podcast. We can’t do this without you! This week, an announcement about our Audyssey interview with Chris Kyriakakis and an update about our interviews with the Digital Media Zone guys. If you have HTPC or home integration questions, get them in now. Camereon sent us a link to the first reported sighting of Dolby Atmos in a tablet – the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (LINK). Dolby also released more information about Atmos Mobile (or whatever they are calling it). (LINK) Mike is interesting in more speakers on his ceiling, Nick compared three of our favorite speakers and reports and he also has a sub recommendation, and Sim wants to know what we think of multi-tweeter speaker designs. Infinite Gary has some questions about powered speakers, Atmos speakers, and whether a reflective floor or reflective ceiling is worse. Bill is planning his home theater and has questions about screen size and projector choice, Damon asked for some budget speaker recommendations (LINK) and Rob forgot to mention EMP Tek (LINK), and Tim is upgrading his 90’s equipment and wants to know what to keep and what to toss. Rob and Tom disagree on that one. Cameron has some questions about localizable bass and what to do with his OTA antenna, Jay is curious about amplifier ratings, Dan wants to know who to trust when shopping for a TV and our specific recommendations, Michael is having DVR issues, and Leighton wants to know if he should upgrade his speakers.
