AV Education on RHT HDMI: One Cable to Replace Them All? Written by Bryan Dailey Staring at the back of a modern home theater receiver or AV preamp can be a scary thing for inexperienced AV enthusiasts. The number of connections on a higher-end piece can be overwhelming, with multiple video input and output types ranging from composite to component to S-Video and DVI/HDMI. The audio options can be just as daunting with toslink, AES-EBU, composite and digital RCA audio connections all filling up a great deal of real estate on the receiver or AV preamp. Assuming a user can figure out how to best configure the system and put the right cables in the right connections on the back of the gear, the process is only half over at this point.

AV Education on RHT Building Your Dream Theater: Step 2 - Homeowner's Guide to Construction Contracts Written by Brian Kahn After you have selected the main players (installer, interior designer, calibrator, acoustician) for your construction team as described in Part One of this series of articles, you will need to negotiate the contracts that will govern their work for you. It is an understatement to say negotiating and drafting the contract documents is extremely important to the success of any home project be it an addition, a remodel or a dedicated home theater. The contracts will set forth the guidelines that outline everyone’s responsibilities and scope of work. In most cases with home theaters, the contracts come from an installer or retail firm and everything is, of course, negotiable. In the event that someone does not do what they are supposed to do, the written contract will provide guidance to the available remedies. Not that ...

AV Education on RHT Building The Basic Home Theater Part Two: Setting a Budget for Gear Written by Bryan Dailey and Jerry Del Colliano Welcome. In part one of our series on how to build a badass home theater, we talked about preparing your room, controlling ambient light, choosing furniture and, finally, how to convince your wife (or husband) how to let you install your dream home theater. In this feature, we are going to focus specifically on one of the biggest concerns that any of us have before we take the plunge into a major home theater: cost. The prices below for the systems we have assembled consist primarily of retail prices available at the time of the publication of this article.

AV Education on RHT Darkness: A Theater's Best Friend Written by Michael Levy As a child, Sundays were frequently spent at the local Lowe’s Paradise Theater. It truly was a paradise for me. How little I knew back then that I was watching a medium at the height of its glory. The screen was huge and often opened into panoramic width. There were dimly lit stars on the ceiling, feigning a midnight sky as I watched the stars on the screen. Everything was dark maroon. The seats and the walls were velvet. The only lights during movies were dimly lit guides to your seat on the floor. My first memories of it were from when I was very young. I was small enough to sink into the plush seat and in love with movies enough to be lost in the new world on the screen projected through the darkness. Yes, darkness, an important ...
