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.

Yesterday was a big one for Apple.  They brought out some new iPods, a brand new iPhone, and unveiled some new apps and services that will be made available in the future. What might be most interesting to audiophiles, though, is iCloud.  With iCloud, every music purchase you make through iTunes will be automatically synced up with your compatible devices.  That means your iPod, iPhone, iPad and home computer will all automatically download the tracks you buy without needing to be started manually.

Normally this sort of story starts with "If you're a fan of X then you'll be excited about Y," but we're just going to go ahead and assume that everyone is a fan of 'Arrested Development.'  The show, which went unappreciated on television, gained a huge and rabid following in recent years and is hailed as one of the funniest and most original on TV.  'Arrested Development' is coming back, not for a movie as originally hinted at, but as a TV show.  The planned run is 10 episodes and bids are currently being accepted for the series.  One of the biggest contenders is Showtime, but it's Netflix that really makes things interesting.
