In this episode I discuss the importance of having a concept as well as a plan when it comes to building, buying or simply enjoying any home entertainment system. I also urge you to look at your listening and/or viewing habits before making any future purchases, for more often than not people purchase the wrong [...]

This question surfaced (again) yesterday during a conversation that I had yesterday with one of my fellow writers, David Vaughn of Home Theater magazine, whose daughter wishes to attend film school. I get asked this question a lot and while I didn’t directly attend a film school per se – I went to The Art [...]

I recently wrote a story about some of the private conversations that I overheard while attending an industry trade show; chief among the notion that this particular business or industry was in dire straits and that someone needed to come along and fix it.

Albert Einstein once said, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” While not the textbook definition of the word, Einstein’s version of insanity is one that many relate most to.

It was an impromptu interview for sure and my first ever experience with Skype (I know, I know) but I felt [...]

Bye, Bye 4K

October 14, 2012 by

I’ve spent a lot of time talking about 4K as of late; praising its strengths while calling attention to its weaknesses, specifically when it comes to its eventual release into the consumer marketplace. Consumer 4K’s deficiencies have been so widely reported lately that the powers that be have begun to notice, not only notice but [...]

It’s easy to get wrapped up in technology. It’s exciting. As an audiophile and home theater enthusiast -hell as a filmmaker -it’s even easier to find yourself falling for a particular amplifier, speaker or camera. At the end of the day these are but tools, tools designed to convey the intent and/or emotion of the [...]

The Road I’m On

October 10, 2012 by

When I first came to LA I didn’t have much; a futon, Gateway PC, a small TV and a couple of cheap JBL loudspeakers. Oh, and a POS Ford Probe that I inherited from my mother. It was a step up from the sky blue minivan I drove throughout high school (I was sexy and [...]
