I was first introduced to KEF Speakers at the dawn of the release of DVD by a neighbor who was both a huge audiophile and a laserdisk fan. At the time I had just gotten my first 'real' job and was intent on building a home theater that would be capable enough to make the new format sing. His set of KEFs was certainly drool worthy but clearly out of my league price wise, and auditioning their lower end speakers was a bit problematic in my area, ultimately I went with another brand but the experience left a lasting impression.

Being a satisfied Boston Acoustics Receptor Radio owner for many years, its been my trusty alarm clock radio for over a decade, I was intrigued to hear the performance of the Boston Acoustics TVee One Speaker Base. Will it impress me in the ways my little Boston clock radio has? Would it have the same unusually good bass response? Is it a very simple and intuitive design just like my radio? And is it well worth the price of admission and yet beyond your standard run-of-the-mill sound bar? High expectations, and comical since they're based on a clock radio, but lets a take a look and see if Boston can make that $300 a worthy investment and a considerable improvement to your lame TV speakers you're currently enjoying...

In the small but innovative world of Internet direct audio manufacturers, Canadian manufacturer Axiom Audio has been steady and consistent presence in a rather tumultuous industry. In 1980 Axiom Audio was born and by 1981 had released its first product. Founder Ian Colquhoun joined Canada’s National Research Council project with the iconic Dr. Floyd Toole, their focus on research aiming to standardize loudspeaker measurement – methodologies that are widely used today. By 1986 Axiom had released its second speaker and had garnered its first award. Since then, Axiom has grown and evolved but maintains the same focus on quality, customer service and audio purity that it has since its inception.

From the beginning, I've followed Ceton. I received one of the very first InfiniTV4, in the first batch, as soon as they had them. I participated in the Echo and App Betas. And from the beginning, I loved the direction that Ceton was taking. Ceton was bringing real life to the cable card in Windows Media Center, and allowing us to do things that just we always wanted.. but Microsoft and others never pushed. ATI had their 2-Tuner external USB Cable Card device, but outside of being clunky it was nearly ungettable; you had to acquire it through specific sources and it's tuning capabilities were rather poor.

I’ve spent a lot of time this year focusing on our new theater room. In putting together that room, I wanted the best that I could get.. within reason, and I wanted to be able to have a theater that really brought the movie experience home. As we worked to build that room, I realized – with a little prodding – that I spend more than my fair share of time watching TV in our bedroom, and the 4+ year old Samsung 46” LCD we were using could use a refresh too.
One of the decisions to make really revolves around how much money you really want to spend for what kind of quality. There is no doubt that cheap LCD big screens are available everywhere – no name brands with mixed quality. I wanted to get the highest quality possible at the best bang for the buck.
