The holidays are a great time to get your friends and family gifts that they really want.  The giving season also grants you the opportunity to provide your loved ones with something they need – even if they didn't know they needed it.  Whether you're upgrading your own home theater or helping out someone on your list, we've got the receivers for you.Entry LevelJust because you're spending less than $500 doesn't mean you can't get a solid receiver from a great brand.  For those getting their first receiver or those that want a secondary setup, an entry level A/V receiver is more than enough.Harman/Kardon AVR1600Harman isn't especially well known for entry level gear, but the AVR1600 is a solid receiver with a retail price of just $499.  It's designed to not only provide high-quality sound, but to simplify some of ...

The holiday season is rolling around and there's no gift more exciting than a television, whether you're on the giving end or the receiving end.  You can expect to see some absolutely crazy deals this holiday season, especially as Black Friday rolls around, but deal or not, you've got to make sure you get a great set for your money. Up to $1,000 We'll start out at the entry level with sets that sell for $1,000 or less.  You get what you pay for, of course.  Sets in the $1,000 range won't boast the same video quality and features as a set that you'd put in your main viewing room, but they're great for second viewing rooms, cottages, or even as gifts for someone you love.

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 ...

Everything You Need to Know About Google TV
The long awaited launch of Google TV is finally here and we couldn't be more excited.  We've heard more than our fair share of rumors, and even passed on some of the more reliable ones, but we've finally got the official details on the entire Google TV lineup for 2010.What it DoesFor starters, let's talk about what Google TV is.  It's not a product in and of itself, but a platform that runs on specific hardware.  Think of it as Microsoft Windows or Mac OS, but for your television.  Any piece of gear that has it will have the same capabilities, all of which revolve around internet based content. Using the Logitech Revue, Sony's Internet TV or Blu-ray player you'll be able to browse the web as if you were sitting at a computer.  Want to watch a video or ...
