    We all know that separates are the way to go when it comes to peak performance, but there’s plenty good to be said about HTiBs.  They’re simple to set up, there’s no question about compatibility or how each part will interact with the next, and they’re generally less expensive.

    JBL L Series Floorstanding Speakers Review

    “Study your history, whoever don’t, I pity the fool like Mr. T.”, boomed out of the JBL L Series Floorstanding Speakers and the grin on my face could be seen from the floor below. As MF DOOM’s quirky, syncopated flow continued to assault my eardrums I couldn’t help but notice that a...

    ZVOX Z-Base 550 Sound Bar Review

    The home theater paradox is a relatively new fad when compared to the impressive lifespan of the cinema theater, or drive-in theater. As VHS broke down the barriers of where you view your films, quality of both picture and sound were still lagging far behind. With the advent of DVD’s we saw...

    We’ve been excited to review the Dell Inspiron Zino HD ever since we first saw it at a preview event last August. An affordable, flexible, small-scale desktop, the Inspiron Zino HD seemed like a more accessible version of Dell’s older Mac Mini-competitor, the Studio Hybrid.
