If you’ve decided to get Satellite radio for your ride (either Sirius or XM) there are three ways you can have it in your vehicle. Your car offers this option as an add-on, you can select an after-market radio and add it there- or your last option would be to …

3D or not 3D at home….

To 3D at home or not to 3D at home; That is the question.
Let’s start with a basic statement
In essence the goal of recreation, whether for music or video has always been to try to create the illusion of reality; a 3D model of the original musical performance or the video in your home.
Ok, we can all agree on this right?
Now let’s step in the waaay back machine for a minute. Do you remember the 3D movies of old, with the 2 color glasses you wore, and your having to hold your head straight …

Ask The Advisors installs Meridian’s new 4k projector

Last month Ask The Advisors had an opportunity to install one of Meridian’s ultra-impressive 810 Reference video systems.

Audiophiles were an established market niche long before custom installation …


So what is it with speakers anyway?

We get a lot of questions about speakers here, so just for fun I am going to cover a few of the very common ones, and perhaps dispel a myth or two while I am at it.

First if a company only sells their speakers on the internet there is a very …
