The folks at Atlantic Technology are pretty intense about quality.  They're going to be creating a good chunk of new products utilizing their H-PAS bass technology and they'd like to bring to market quickly.  Other companies may outsource to a third party manufacturer, but not Atlantic. "We've recognized a need to expand the scale of our activities without diluting our brand along those paths chosen by some of our competitors," says Atlantic president Peter Tribesman.  He says that quite a few products using H-PAS are planned and they'll be bringing those to stores soon.  "What we will not do," he adds, "is to put our logo on dime-a-dozen contractor speakers or disappoint our loyal dealer base."

It's easy to rag on streaming video.  The video quality from sources like Hulu and Netflix is pretty disappointing and if you're looking for more than stereo sound you'll be sorely disappointed. Vudu is different though.  From the onset, the company has been aimed at providing high quality streaming to its customer base and today they've taken it a step further.  For the first time ever, 7.1 channel audio will be available via a streaming video service.

As A/V and home cinema enthusiasts, I'm sure many of you have spent countless hours reading about audio and video products, and home theatre upgrades.  We've drooled over installations and do it yourself projects featured in magazines and Internet forums while planning our dream cinemas. But asside from that one scene in MTV's Cribs where the star of the week bragged about thier in-house theatres, there haven't been many television shows where you can see the before and after progress of a home cinema / man cave upgrades...until now.

For those of us with really nice home theater setups,  the thought of getting a movie at home while it's still in theaters is an incredible one.  At the price of $60 it makes economic sense if you have a few people over and you take into account the 500% markup on popcorn prices. Universal was planning to make the Eddie Murphy movie 'Tower Heist' available just 21 days after it hit theaters  but theater owners fought against it with gusto.

There's something wrong with several of Sony's 40 inch Bravia televisions, and it's not something small either.  Apparently, some of them have been overheating and one has even caught fire as a result of a defect.  Sony says that around 400,000 TVs are affected by the issue.  They've revealed that is has something to do with the backlighting, but haven't specified as to what the problem part is.  The company says though, that there have been no reports of damage to property - well, the TVs obviously, but no other property - and no injuries have occurred.

Netflix has been changing a lot over the last few months, and most of these changes have been for the worse as far as the general customer base is concerned.  The new PC user interface is inconvenient, and the price change was upsetting, but splitting DVD and streaming into two different services was the straw that broke the camel's back. Netflix customers took to the internet to complain about the service.  Some cancelled their Netflix service altogether, which is something that the company clearly picked up on.  CEO Reed Hastings addressed Netflix subscribers in an email and on his blog, letting them know that he's willing to admit that he made a mistake - again.

If you're looking for something that no one else you know will have - this is it.  Meridian's new speaker system is specially improved, uniquely finished and comes in a limited edition of 40.  Not 40 thousand - just 40. The system consists of a 808 Signature Reference CD player that's been specially upgraded for the least amount of jitter on any Meridian CD player yet.
