AVRant #45: Power Conditioner or Rip-off?
Geek bathroom reading. Someone at Denon is throwing a party. We get an email from someone named Gene. This may change the podcast dynamic in the future. What sort of sound card should you use with your HTPC? Tom and Clint weigh in. Of course, they can agree on one thing – why are you using an HTPC? Adrian has a few questions about 5.1 vs. 7.1 systems. Wireless speakers – good idea? Tom and Clint have reviewed a number of products and summarize. Running wires – Clint’s got a favorite method that doesn’t involve attics, basements, or pulling up carpets. How big should your room be for 7.1? What about upgrading speakers? New set or a pair of a time? As Audioholics, we really want to recommend something that we can’t. What could it be? What’s the deal with the Audioholics store and our recommended systems? Hurricane parties. Some shocking statements are made about a VERY prominent power conditioner manufacturer. Let the hate mail fly. Thanks for listening.
