News - WHAT HI-FI Reviews LG 65EF950V OLED 4K TV

LG must be doing the full PR press with all the 4K OLED reviews popping up in the last few days. Granted, this is the first one I've seen for the UK version of the flat 65" display, so it was nice to see.

News - Amazon Video Now Available to UK Roku Users

Falling clearly into the wait-it-wasn't-there-already category, apparently the Amazon Video channel never made it to the UK. Until now that is, with the channel finally available to UK Roku users.

News - HDGuru Reviews Roku 4

Just when I thought I was sold on the Roku 2, I found this review of the Roku 4. No mention of fan noise, or the top melting though. Hmm...

News - TweakTown Drools Over, er... Reviews LG 65EG9600 Curved 65" 4K OLED

There are very few times when, after reading the intro paragraph for a review, that I am legitimately jealous. So well done TweakTown. Lucky Bastards Wink.

News - The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

There was a time, not that long ago, that plasma display panel (PDP) technology ruled the earth. Not only because it dominated in picture quality, but because it also lead when it came to value as well.

News - Home Theater Review Looks at Sunfire XTEQ12 Subwoofer

A solid, well performing subwoofer is a critical aspect of a good home theater, or audio system. Especially if you use an AVR with LFE filtering enabled (you should be in most cases). The Sunfire XTEQ12 is a bit outside my price range, but it might hit the mark for you.

News - Vizio Is Tracking You. Selling Information To Advertisers.

Vizio has made a name for itself selling "value" kit. I've never personally played with any of it, but my understanding is, that for the most part, you get what you pay for. Well except for the intrusive tracking and reselling of your viewing habits which must be included in the price somewhere.

News - Reference Home Theater Reviews Harmony Elite Universial Remote Control

Harmony has been pushing its control ecosystem beyond the home theater and into the more general home automation space recently, with the Elite topping the lineup. The $350 price tag is a bit hard to swallow vs. its ~$130 siblings (what I use), but there are a few advantages to stepping up.
