Seann William Scott and Paul Rudd star in "Role Models" as Danny and Wheeler, two salesmen who trash a company truck on an energy-drink-fueled bender. Upon their arrest, the court gives them a choice: do hard time or spend 150 service hours with a mentorship program. After one day with the kids, however, jail doesn't look half bad.

How does color accuracy measure up?

There’s more that goes into making a good display than accurate color, but it’s certainly one of the biggies. Color in a video display may seem like a relatively simple subject, but it’s not. In this Gear Works, I’ll outline the two most important factors in assessing and measuring the color accuracy of the HDTVs we review—color tracking and color gamut. I’ll also show you how we present this in the HT Labs Measures graphics that accompany our reviews. This article will shed some light on what these important measurements tell us about the color accuracy of the displays we test here at Home Theater.

This week, we are proud to debut a new blog called <A href="http://blog.ultimateavmag.com/ultimate-gear/">Ultimate Gear</A>. Seeing as how the word "ultimate" is part of the name of our site, we thought it might be interesting to post profiles of home-theater equipment and systems that can rightly be placed in that category.

Unless you're a serious audiophile, you might not know the name <A href="http://www.goldmund.com">Goldmund</A>. After 30 years making ultra-high-end audio components, this Swiss company is expanding into the realm of home theater. But if you think it's simply offering projectors and surround-sound systems, think again. When you contact Goldmund to discuss home theater, you'll be talking about a <I>complete</I> media room that the company will design, build, equip, and calibrate from beginning to end.

<A href="http://www.wilsonaudio.com">Wilson Audio</A> is well known for ultra-high-end speakers, but most of its products are designed for 2-channel listening. To create a full surround system, all you need do is mate any of Wilson's superlative L/R models with a center, surrounds, subwoofer, and controller from the WATCH (Wilson Audio Theater Comes Home) lineup.

If you've been wanting to expand your library of Blu-ray discs but are put off by their high prices, now's a good time to stock up. From March 9 through March 22, Amazon is reducing the price on over 300 Blu-ray titles (roughly a third of the entire Blu-ray catalog), including Iron Man, Transformers, and WALL-E; for a complete list of titles on sale, click here. A few titles are under $10, but most are $10 to $20, representing an average savings of around 50 percent over regular Blu-ray price tags. I'm so there!
