Getting Started with Multi-Room Audio
When we talk about multi-room audio, we've got a certain image in mind.  We picture controlling the source for any room in the house from any room in the house.  We imagine touch control pads in each and full control over a tower of CD players, radios, computers and other music sources.  It's a great goal, but it's not as simple as just going out and buying one component.Multi-room audio systems are incredibly diverse, and come in configurations to meet a wide range of needs.  Even if you're hiring someone to take care of installation, you'll need to do a bit of research up front to figure out just what kind of setup is right for you.  Different homes will allow for different systems.  If you've got a new construction or you're willing to go through the trouble of wiring ...

Sometimes your home theater needs more than just a great sounding set of speakers.  Sound quality is essential, but so is a bit of style, a little flair, some panache for many discerning audiophiles with a pension for great design.  There's something to be said for having a conversation starter in your home theater as well.  How better to do that than picking a set of loudspeakers to dazzle not only the ears but the eyes as well?  Here are AVRev’s Top 10 picks of floorstanding speakers that will make your guests do a double take at your audio setup:Bowers & Wilkins NautilusWe kick things off with the tried and true Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus.

10 Fantastic Subwoofers for Home Theaters
When you’re thinking about modifying the sound in your home theater, nothing can make or break the overall effect of your sound system like a subwoofer.  A weak sub can make even the most thrilling action sequence seem muted, and a sub that’s too much for the room can overpower the rest of the system with ease.But there’s nothing that ties a room together – not a giant screen, great seating or even an antique rug – like a subwoofer that just plain works for home theaters.   Here’s a list of 10 subwoofers that we think offer an exceptional quality of deep bass and can give your theater the extra oomph that will impress anyone sitting down to watch the latest blockbuster movie.  Velodyne Optimum-10  It probably won’t come as a surprise to see Velodyne on this list.  They’ve been ...

Blu-ray Discs to Showcase Your New Sound System
You've picked out some new speakers, a new receiver, an amp, or even an entirely new sound system.  It's a great feeling, and it's something that you want to share.  If your Blu-ray collection isn't up to snuff, you'll have a hard time doing it.  Comedies and indie flicks are fine to watch, but they're not going to give your system the workout it needs.With that in mind, we've compiled a list of some of the absolute best Blu-ray discs, and the best scenes from each, to use while showing off your new system.  These are not only top quality as far as accurate sound reproduction goes, but they've got those dynamic moments that really make an impression. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen 'Revenge of the Fallen' was by no stretch of the imagination a great movie.  It'd even be ...

Tweak-O-Files: Volume 4
Yet again, I've combed the internet and recruited my most neurotic audiophile acquaintances to bring you some of the most interesting, unusual, and frankly, questionable high end audio tweaks. As always, I note when I have had first hand experience with a particular tweak.  You can read parts 1, 2 and 3 by clicking the numbers.Quietrock:Quietrock drywall maybe more than a tweak, it may be the foundation of your listening room. It is sound proof sheet rock that will help to isolate your dedicated listening room from outside noise, and conversely, will allow other to live in peace during your concert level listening sessions. I had it installed in my listening room to great results. Pricing varies.
