AVRant #50: The Real Dina

AV Rant reaches the big 50! Woo hoo! Tom and Clint need therapy. Tom thinks he might be cool. He’s probably wrong. Dina puts him in his place and shows the “real” Dina. Tom sorta broke AV Rant again… but he fixed it. Tom will never learn his lesson about WordPress but he did learn something about Dina. Chet weighs in on Knight Rider. David Hasselhoff and Eliot Spitzer? What are they doing on this Podcast? Tom is reviewing Army of Two and discusses briefly. Look for the review soon. Are spikes worth it? Brandon asks us to revisit the topic. What’s the deal with speaker phase? Will that make a difference in sound? Tom and Dina discuss. Tom gives Jarret some homework. Tom decides to hold a mini AV Rant contest. The next contest will be open to more listeners, we promise. Are 3-D movies the next big thing? Tom and Dina discuss.

    Now that you’ve talked about it, I was noticing sound weird placement in the sound stage that I didn’t think a lot about.

    I’ve working on that “review” of the Axiom M3ii v. Boston VRB. I hope it’ll be good, because I’m not much of an authority.

    I enjoyed Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles but I’m not sure if it was because it was actually good or if it was because it was the only program with new episodes.

    When should we expect your review of the Emotive speakers?

    Have you been given any clues when you guys will be receiving their sub package for review? Twin 12in subs with an outboard amp and EQ intrigues me. The small size of the subs will definitely help in passing the WAF, I just want to read a review on the performance compared to the other ID subs (SVS, Hsu, AV123, Epik, eD) before I make a purchase.

    I’ll get the review done as soon as I can. Probably in the next couple of weeks. The subs are high on everyone’s list around here. I think we all said “dibs” simultaneously when we heard about them. Not sure yet who is going to get to review them.

    Has Emotiva given you guys any idea when they will send them to you for review? All their website has said the past few months is “Available, Fist Quarter 2008″, which is quickly coming to a close.
