The Pros and Cons of Extended Warranties By Jerry Del Colliano April 2006 Anyone who has ever purchased an electronic device or component of any kind in the last 20 years has been offered the chance to buy an extended warranty. The question still remains as pertinent today as it was years ago: are extended warranties worth it? The simple answer is: it depends. In the old days of high-end audio and stereo you made investments in analog devices (speakers, amps, preamps, turntables, tube television sets), which were either awkward to move or were likely built with expensive analog parts. Today’s home theater systems are built more like computers and have lifespans that reflect more on the disposable nature of their processors than the analog nature of high-end audio components of years gone by.

Triad In-Room Silver System
Introduction Triad Speakers have been around for more than 24 years, yet many consumers are just starting to hear about the brand as they are primarily marketed to the custom installation market. Triad speakers are quite unique. Unlike almost all other major speaker manufacturers, Triad produces custom installed speakers that are indeed truly custom. Need a narrow center speaker? They can make it for you. Need bi-pole rear speakers painted in sea foam green to match the Dunn Edwards paint being used in the room? They can do it. Refreshingly, nearly every speaker they produce is made to order within 72 hours of when the order is placed. Here's the basic idea behind Triad's lines of speakers. The designs are application driven, with as many as four configurations of each model, for specific installation applications without compromise. Versions typically consist of an InRoom and at least one InWall version, with some having OnWall and InCeiling versions ...

AV Education on RHT The Art of the Demo Written by Jerry Del Colliano November 2004 In the glory days of high-end audio, the demo sold at the local stereo store often made indelible impressions on consumers, causing people to save every penny to afford that new tone arm or tube preamp. Today, the audiophile market is basically dead in all places other than eBay and Audiogon. Dealers have had to adapt in order to sell engineered systems in increasingly complex homes that come complete with touch screen control of distributed audio, a full home theater system, lighting, HVAC, a wine collection and so much more. The problem is that many dealers in this time of real estate boom (and the impending home theater sales that go along with such a boom) have forgotten how to really blow a customer’s socks off.

AV Education on RHT The Pros and Cons of LCD TVs Written by Michael Levy Introduction I remember the first time I saw “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Of all of the wonders predicted in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, I was most taken by the flat screen TV displays. In one scene, the displays are like pads on the table. The LCD monitors that now come with most computers come closest to looking like them. LCD displays have quickly become the reference for personal computing, but they have not expanded in size enough to compete with plasma for home entertainment. While plasma is well ahead in this race, many think LCD displays will be first across the finish line when one format dominates. As the technology advances and LCD conquers its limitations its strengths give it greater viability.

AV Education on RHT The Pros and Cons of Plasma TVs Written by Michael Levy Introduction Audio/video product designers tend to be dreamers. When I was young, I would dream of a George Jetson-inspired day when you could just hang a picture on the wall and view a bright, clear, vivid moving image. Plasma TV has made that seemingly impossible dream real. Believe it or not, plasma screen technology goes back to the ‘60s. It took advancements in chip design and miniaturization through the decades to make it commercially feasible. Growing up in that era, I could daydream of the concept, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I doubted it could really make it to the walls of my home. Now, people go every day to vendors ranging from CostCo to the best custom home theater designers to get a sexy, thin plasma-beaming HDTV in their living rooms. Walking through the vast hallways of ...
