Why you want new speakers, now!

Sure, sure I know your home speakers are just fine. Ok, they do not look so good after all those college party’s…and actually the boxes are pretty dinged up; and come to think of it they are awfully big. I am sure your wife has mentioned this a time or two.
Most of you reading this have not even looked at new speakers for a whole lot of years…and speakers have changed… a lot.
 

 
You can replace your old speakers with new ones that are smaller, better looking, sound better, hang on the wall, fit on a …


Home Theater: “Wow” is all I can say…

We have a brand new McIntosh Theater system in our main room! It’s from the Westchester I collection and a resounding ‘WOW’ is all I can say about it. This thing flat out rocks! You simply must stop in to see and hear this system for yourself. It includes the XRT1K main speakers, XCS1K center speaker, and a pair of the XCS200K for rear surrounds. Powering it are three MC1.2KW – 1200 watt amps on each of the front three speakers and an MC452 at 450 watts per channel for the rear speakers. It is …


McIntosh McMasters Class: June 2011

In 1949 Frank McIntosh and Gordon Gow began manufacturing high quality amplification products in direct defiance of what was believed to be possible at the time. They were among the pioneers of high-end audio, quickly established the McIntosh brand as a performance powerhouse and established a large following. They have maintained this through the decades by expecting the highest quality from every employee at every level and this is exactly what I experienced when I recently attended the McMasters training at their factory in Binghamton, New York.

Their course starts out with classroom education which reinforces …


iPhone vs. Android:

The technology industry has basically consisted of two major players in the personal-computer realm – Apple and everyone else for the last 25 years now. Now the same is happening with smart phones; a product category defined more and more by competition between Apple’s iPhone and the crowd of manufacturers producing devices with the Google-Android software.
Unlike the Mac-PC wars, the battle between the iPhone and Android is in its early stages. Both Apple and Google (and its hardware partners) are trying to dominate the market in exactly the right way: by building the best possible …

D-Box, or DBOX, or Debox…or whatever you want to call it.

Forget 3D, it is so last week. We are talking 4D or 5D…or I am not sure how many D’s…it is just much cooler than plain old 3D. You see with 3D it looks like the images come out of the screen; good effect don’t get me wrong.
But how about your couch or your chair actually moves you along with what is going on in the movie. This is no butt kicker or big sub woofer here, oh no. This is actual computer controlled multi-directional motion that makes you feel like …


Some Passwords Should NEVER Be Used

According to an article published in Sophos, 33% of people use the same password on every single website. That means that if your password gets stolen in one place it can be used to unlock access to other sites too.

Are you one of the many people using a dangerously easy-to-guess password?

 
Twitter, LinkedIn, World of WarCraft and Yahoo are amongst the popular websites which are advising users to change their passwords in light of the recent security breach at the Gawker Media family of sites. Hackers know about the most commonly chosen passwords and are quick …


It couldn’t be any easier to gain access to your Facebook account…

A developer has released an app for Android phones and tablets that puts website credential stealing over smartphones into the hands of just about anyone.
I don’t want to give you the name of the app, but I am sure with a little help from a Google search you will find it. It can be used to steal unencrypted cookies on most Wi-Fi networks, giving users a simple interface for stealing sensitive authentication information sent over Facebook, Amazon, YouTube, Twitter and other popular websites (additions are being added weekly) when users don’t bother to use encrypted …


Broadband Routers 101

A router is a device that forwards data packets along networks. It is typically connected to at least two networks, commonly two Local Area Networks (LANs) or Wide Area Networks (WANs) or a LAN and it’s Internet Service Provider’s (ISP) network. Routers are located at gateways, the places where two or more networks connect, and are the critical device that keeps your data flowing between networks and keeps your networks connected to the Internet.
When data is sent between devices on one network or from one network to a second network the data is always seen …


Summer is here…time to ignore your Audio / Video  system?

It is funny living here in Florida; summer comes and we all spend a lot of time indoors because of the heat and humidity…and yet in the summer we have fewer people than usual coming in to buy new Audio and Video gear.
Can anyone explain this one to me?
I would be willing to bet that every person reading this watches more movies and listens to more music in the summer than any other time of the year here in Florida. You have to watch more movies; summer is re-run season on TV. I …
