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.

The Sonos music system is a very cool way to get whole home audio without having to deal with wires and installation.  It's also pretty convenient in terms of giving you access to all of your digital music wherever you want it.  Best of all, for those on a tighter budget anyway, it's nice and cheap to delve into. The Play:3 is the latest from Sonos and it comes in at just $299.  It boasts three drivers - two mids and a tweeter - each of which boasts a dedicated Class-D amplifiers.  It's got a passive bass radiator that fires from the back as well so you don't miss out on those lows.

We're only a few months away from what will almost certainly be the biggest Blu-ray release yet.  Since high definition discs were introduced, fans have been craving epic films like the 'Indiana Jones' trilogy, 'Jaws,' 'Jurassic Park,' and all of the other big screen adventures that need to be appreciated in a higher resolution.  Though all of these are in high demand, the outcry for 'Star Wars' overtakes them all. If you're the owner of an Apple iDevice - an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch - you'll be able to get an early peek at what the Blu-ray set has to offer.  Starting on August 2nd, iPhone and iPod owners will be able to download the app, but if you own an iPad you can go ahead and grab it right now.

In the last few years there have been a variety of media streamers competing for the top spot, but Roku has always been at the forefront in terms of price, capability and innovation.  The Roku 2 brings more to the table than its predecessors without mucking about with higher prices. The baseline model is the Roku 2 HD and it offers the basics - built in Wi-Fi, music and movie streaming and a 720p resolution. The XD steps things up to 1080p while the XS adds a motion control for gaming, an ethernet port for those who want to go wired, and a free copy of Angry Birds.  Even more exciting is that the XS model finally introduces a USB port for playback of files.

Some companies like to doll up their receivers with features like internet radio capabilities, iPhone control and streaming functionality.  NAD goes the other route, offering only features to enhance the listening experience. The new T-757 boats a high-speed DSP for decoding high definition audio formats and can convert stereo source material into a surround sound experience using EARS surround mode.  It remembers custom settings for each of your sources and you can even name the inputs to match the source that's attached.
