Nintendo Wii is maybe the best piece of AV Gear ever
I looked at your list of topics and figured I'd put this here because the Nintendo Wii is not a high-def gaming machine. It doesnt play any HD discs, heck it doesnt even play DVDs, but I have to state here that it is far and away the most addictive thing you can put in your AV system (No, i dont have a vested interest in Nintendo).
Even if you hate video games and dont want to spend alot of money, all you need is the stock system with Wii sports. I think i have worn out my rotater cuff hitting wicked top spinning serves on Wii tennis and towering 300 yard drives on Wii Golf. Is anyone as addicted to thing as I am?
