Home Theater Audio: Simplifying the Soundbar…

I recently had the opportunity to unpack and set up the new HEW-550 Airtrack, a hybrid soundbar / speaker system from the folks at Samsung, and despite my pre-conceived thoughts of Samsung not really being solid in the audio arena, I was pleasantly surprised at what came out of the box.

The HWE-550 is stylish and compact

The HWE-550 contains a stereo speaker pair, complete with stands and wall-mounting hardware, which can be re-assembled as a stand-alone soundbar if side speakers are not preferred. In addition, the HWE-550 adds a powered subwoofer which is the heart of …


Home Music: PSB M4U 2 Headphones!

Upon the arrival of the new PSB M4U 2 headphones, we realized that these headphones were a great value. There are a few specifics that demolish the other headphones out there.
If you know PSB you’d know that PSB stands for Paul and Sue, his wife, Barton, and speakers have been Pauls’ passion for over 40 years, and he has continuously received praise for his speakers along the way. He has built these from scratch using his good ole fashioned know how, a degree is science, and the Canadian National Research Center. Needless to say he …


Home Audio: The New NAD M51 DAC!

The new NAD M51 DAC is nothing short of astounding! This is especially true when you realize that it sells for only $1999.95…there are so many DAC’s on the market for many multiples of that amount that do not sound like this thing does.

I always try to be as objective as possible with new products; but tend to be a bit jaded and not always completely receptive to new things. Having done this for well over 30 years I have a bit of a been there done that attitude when a new product comes along. …


Home Music: We’re Now A Meridian Dealer!

Why you ask did we decide to add Meridian into our already extensive product mix? Let me try to explain…Meridian is to regular Hi-Fi; what Calculus is to 1st grade math.

Confused? Let me try to explain more completely. If I can…


Z-Wave hacking is very device-dependent. Some Z-Wave devices support encryption, which is good. The problem is that some of those devices implement it incorrectly and actually expose the encryption keys. While this is still more secure than having no security, it’s obviously open to attack by any ill-intentioned person with the right hardware.

Securing a Z-Wave system isn’t straightforward like a typical home network since every device doesn’t support the same protocol. We would need to know every Z-Wave device in the home, and then we would need to research each one to see which of …


Home Audio: Vinyl Records

While we all know that vinyl has been making a real big comeback over the last few years, although, I bet not that many of you know how records are actually made. Those new to vinyl records definitely do not know, but I have found in talking to a few people that even some of the “old guys” are not that aware of how it is done either! It’s actually a rather interesting process to see.


Home Audio: McIntosh MX121

When people think of McIntosh they either get really happy or really frightened. Happy because they love the quality and the sound, but frightened sometimes by the price, but let’s get real here. You have to pay to play. The McIntosh MX121 A/V Control Center is like having the best of both worlds though. For the price of about $6000.00 you can have one of the industry’s leading A/V Processor with a plethora of performance features, which is relatively inexpensive.

The MX121 comes with HDMI 1.4a with 3D pass-thru switching, which also incorporates six HDMI …


Ruminating On Music…

So I was sitting at my computer the other day listening to Spotify on the multi-media speakers that are attached to it, when I suddenly realized something…something terrifying.
I was not listening to the music at all. I was using music as background noise while I worked. How awful!

In fact, I felt so bad about this that I immediately got up and walked over to my system and turned it on. I shut down the mediocre multi-media system that was attached to my computer. I put on a vinyl record. Yes that’s right, a record…and I …
