Share Your Setup - Brian
In this week's episode of Share Your Setup, we have High-Def Digest and AVRev reader Brian Hoyt and his home basement cinema, called Hoyt's Cinema.  This made me smile because, as some of our East Coast readers may recall, Hoyts Cinemas used to be a regional theatre chain until about ten years ago when their remaining locations were purchased by Regal.  I had the pleasure (and sometimes misfortune) of slinging popcorn behind the concession stand of many a Hoyts Cinema locales in Connecticut and Massachusetts during high school and college.  Seeing the name again brings back fond memories of freshly popped corn, unlimited free movies, melting butter-esc toping, and…the abject terror of facing down a grouchy, exhausted Mother who took all of her kids and their friends to the movies on a rainy summer day…where was I? Oh yes, Brian ...

Share Your Setup - Chris
In this week's installment of AVRev's new series, Share Your Setup, we have professional sound guy (and High-Def Digest reader) Chris Martin sharing his garage turned dedicated home theatre space.  Chris is hugely passionate, and geektastic, home audio and cinema enthusiast, who is running 9.1 channels of surround sound and displaying his wares on a 12-foot projector screen.Personally, what I love about Chris' space is how it combines high end gear with the type of regular joe setup many of us have.  Also, I love his toys, key art, and prominently displayed Blu-ray collections.  This guy loves HD!  Here's Chris in his own words:AUDIOPHILE, VIDEO/CINEPHILE, OR BOTH? I would say both.  Audiophile:  I love live music.  I am a professional sound guy for small shows of up to 16 inputs.  I use a Mackie Onyx mixer that has a nice ...

Share Your Setup - David
Hello, Everyone.  Welcome to this week's installment of Share Your Setup .  We've got a fabulous, dedicated theatre space to share with you, sent in by High-Def Digest reader, David Susilo.  David is an award-winning photographer, self-described technology freak, and fan of anything Canon, DIsney, PSB, and Pioneer.  He's also -- wait for it -- ISF and THX certified, a Control4 professional installer, and a member of HAA, CEA, and CEDIA.  Impressive!  Here's David in his own words to talk about his setup, officialy named the Akung Cinema Experience (which is dedicated to his grandfather, Hadi Soeryanto):  AUDIOPHILE, VIDEO/CINEPHILE, OR BOTH? AND WHY?  I'm more of a musicphile and cinephile.  With my various backgrounds including video and music production, I want my home theatre / music room to be able to faithfully reproduce the audio and video as faithfully as ...

Share Your Setup - Travis
Welcome all to the first ever edition of AVRev's new article series, Share Your Setup, where the AVRev readers are the subject of the articles.  Basically, I thought it'd be fun for us to show off our gear and talk shop in the comments afterwards.  I know I love telling friends and family [Palmer's wife edit: and random strangers] about my home theatre setup -- every gadget, every source, every specification and calibration -- and there's bound to be a few others out there like me. Say hello to Travis Gidcumb, everyone.  Travis is not only our first victim (muhahahahaha!), but he's also an AVRev reader and facebook fan who has been collecting audio and video gear for the last 25 years.  He's rocking a home theatre system with a Pioneer Elite Kuro Plasma wallmounted over his fireplace, a ...

CES 2011 Press Conference Wrapup
The consumer electronics show kicked off as it always does – with press conferences from the major players, announcing new products, new initiatives, and a little bit of bragging about the last year’s accomplishments.It all started with LG, who had a very mixed event.  There were some cool announcements, but flops to go with each of them.  After the “we had a great 2010” part of the speech was over – that’s the way these things tend to begin – we got to hear a bit more about the massive 12 billion dollar investment that LG made in their research and development team.  It sounds like we can expect some big things in the near future. LG had a strong focus on “smart” products.  It’s a theme that they shared in common with Samsung.  Smart TVs, smart phones and even ...
