Last week we had fireworks and speeches in Denver, as 84,000 screaming fans jammed Invesco Field to celebrate the upcoming CEDIA Expo. It was the biggest kickoff CEDIA has had since Bose sued them for use of the term "Lifestyle."

Unless you're into custom home theater installations, Rotel might be a company that's a bit off your radar screen. They don't advertise much, aren't in the big-box retail outlets, and let's be honest, their products are a bit pricey. However,...

<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/robinhood.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>Hollywood legend Errol Flynn stars as Robin of Locksley, better known as Robin Hood. He and his band of Merry Men rob from the rich and give to the poor to offset the heavy taxation imposed by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Melville Cooper).

When I reviewed Sony's <A href="http://ultimateavmag.com/flatpaneldisplays/408sonykdl52/">KDL-52XBR4</A> LCD TV in April 2008, I was very impressed for the most part. With excellent color and exceptional detail on HD material, my only reservations were a slightly soft appearance on SD content and a black level that remained a bit elevated on real-world programs. (The black level mysteriously dropped on certain test patterns, even with all dynamic settings disabled.) Also, its list price of $4000 was pretty steep.

JVC is making a somewhat tentative step into the Blu-ray world with the new NX-BD3 home theater system. The NX-BD3 is a 2.1 channel system. Why not jump in with a full 5.1 system to really show off the audio benefits of Blu-ray? Perhaps...

<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/heroes1.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT>Evolution is the process of change in all forms of life over generations. In <i>Heroes</i>, this process manifests itself in a random group of humans who start to develop superhuman powers. Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) has the ability to manipulate the spacetime continuum, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) is unbreakable, and Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg) can read people's minds. These are just a few of the characters we meet in season one as they battle the evil Sylar (Zachary Quinto), a serial killer with a unique superpower. Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) is the only man capable of stopping Sylar's murderous plans as he struggles to control his own superpowers.

AT&T is going into the a/v custom installation business. I am running for president of the United States on the Audiophile Party ticket. Only one of the two preceding statements is true, but which one? They're both equally outlandish.

No, not the Jolly Green Giant. EngadgetHD has news from IFA about Panasonic's newest products. Plasma prototypes that are very big, very thin, or very eco-friendly. Not happy with a 103-inch screen, Panasonic debuted a 150-inch 4K plasma. I want...
