Podcast #866: Receiver Recommendation, Under $500

We received an email from Santosh in the Bay Area of California asking if we could recommend a receiver for a modest home theater system to go in his medium sized family room. We thought, "no problem! We know the exact receiver to recommend." However, like everyone, he did have some requirements; the biggest one being that it could not exceed $500. On Santosh’s must have list: 4K, HDR, and ARC to support Digital Audio from his smart TV.

Podcast #815: Battle of the Big TVs

Braden is packing up all his earthly belongings and moving them, along with his family, to a new home. One of the items that isn’t leaving, however, is the 100” projection screen in the family room.

On the good side, HDTV was multiple video resolutions and display formats, like 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p, while UHD is essentially just one. Some call it 4K, some call it UHD, some call it 2160p, but it all really boils down to the same thing for the TVs we’ll buy as consumers - 4 times the resolution of 1080p.

Podcast #664: Receiver Buying Guide 2014

It is that time of year where we get to spend your money again! This week we concentrate on receivers. Our goal with these guides is not necessarily about getting the latest product. Its about getting a good product at a great price so you may see some of last year’s gear on the list. All these receivers are readily available online or at a big box store. Just like the HDTV Buying Guide, we’re going to skip the budget categories jump right to our top picks.

Podcast #649: UHD: Next Big Thing or Next Big Yawn?

Ever since the big HDTV buying boom a few years ago, television manufacturers have tried to come up with new ways to stimulate another giant upgrade cycle. It didn't work with 3D.

There seems to be a bit of debate raging in the analyst-sphere about just how big the UHD transition will be and how quickly it will take hold.
