Gear comes at a wide range of prices, perhaps more with receivers than any other piece of home theater component.  You can pick up something bare-bones for as little as $200 or go for a top-of-the line receiver that costs into the multiple thousands of dollars. NAD has traditionally skewed towards the latter, offering high-end receivers to be purchased by those that favor quality over a low cost, but T 748 was designed to cater to both.  It's not a cheapo receiver that you'll find at Walmart, but at $900 it's the least expensive receiver available from the company.

Folks that appreciate a good TV - a really good TV - hold Pioneer in incredibly high regard. The Kuro series of plasmas is still the one that sets the standard for deep black levels and Pioneer's reputation is still strong years after the company exited the TV market. Those Pioneer Elite sets are coming back with help from Sharp.  We're not getting a plasma, which may disappoint some fans, but the LED backlit LCD that's being offered sounds impressive.  It packs the same yellow sub-pixel that Sharp is known for, as well as full LED backlighting and local dimming of those LEDs.

Sure, Hitachi isn't exactly a TV brand that AV Rev readers are likely to have in the house - it's not on the same level as a Panasonic, Samsung or Sony - but when any brand is considering leaving the business it's well worth a mention. Hitachi started in TV production back in 1956 and now, 55 years later, they're finding things a bit difficult.  Competing with Korean manufacturers who have lower costs is problematic and Hitachi has been considering outsourcing production for some time.

The PT-AE7000U is a surprising first for Panasonic.  Though the company has been on the forefront of 3D since it first started coming back into theaters - they were instrumental to the creation of 'Avatar' as you may know - this is the first Full HD 3D projector they've released. Of course, the PT-AE7000U is an impressive component.  It offers a contrast ratio of 300,00:1 and 2,000 lumens brightness.  It also boasts a new 200-watt Red-Rich lamp that Panasonic says will insure greater red luminance and a brighter picture overall.

LG isn't messing around with the new LW9800 series of televisions, nor are they humble.  Company president Havis Kwon calls the 9800 the crown jewel of TVs and claims that LG has set a new benchmark in connectivity and picture quality. The LW9800 uses passive 3D technology that ensures that the glasses are lightweight and inexpensive.  It also boasts a proprietary 2D to 3D conversion technology so if you run out of 3D content to watch you can switch regularly 2D content over to the third dimension.

The folks over at AUO have a vested interest in organic LED televisions.  The same can be said of any television maker that's playing with the technology of course, but most don't seem to have the same take on the tech. While some companies have the "it's just around the corner" line down, AUO says that you probably shouldn't get too excited.  They're expecting at least another few years before OLED televisions are even feasible for commercial use, let alone ready for the general public.

Netflix is the way to go for the biggest streaming selection at the lowest price, but when you really care about the quality of your viewing experience, Vudu is a no brainer.  It's as close as you're going to get to Blu-ray from a streaming service. Of course, getting people to try Vudu with such a massive competitor on the landscape can be tough.
