    Austin Movie Nights!

    I'm all for some Halloween movies to get us ready for the real thing Halloween night. Now personally at somepoint on Halloween I'm out with the kids (ages 3 and 7) who aren't over-aged. After that which will be early, we can watch some classic horror somewhere. I've got the monster legacy...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    I got the best deal on the Star Wars set: the THX booth at CEDIA. They made me stamp a board saying I had my card scanned at every THX licensed company at CEDIA and then they gave me the set. Maybe we could all watch it this weekend somewhere?

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Nils- The rumor and its just rumor obviously because of who it came from (Harry Knowles' sister) is that the DVDs will have the original versions available for viewing, not the SEs. I thought it was bogus but did find the bragging by Lucasfilm that extensive restoration was done. Why was more...

    Jonathon- Less people at the Rocky Mountain Fest so its easier to get to demo the Equipment, of course the displays might suck for sound. CEDIA generally has the shows at the convention center, and some people have their own rooms built there, and the sound isn't bad.

    Johnathon- Its not hard to beat CES. CEDIA does a good job of it imho. CES is tied down to hotels, etc. and is BUSY where as a smaller event like the Rocky Mountain fest allows people a better chance of hearing equipment. John- Right now we're looking at August 25th for our opening. Paul...

    Scott- I can honestly say that it was an EASY decision for Nils. The Mirus speakers are hands down better than Polk Audio R8s. I personally can't wait to hear what they sound like with a good source. I heard them from a HTPC, and we all know thats not ideal for audio or video (I hope). I'm...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Hey Guys- I'm just really, really, really busy. I did email Guillermo about guest hosting a Hellboy movie night and introduce the flick and talk about it afterwards. Right now no response, but I'm sure he will respond. He's done it for me in the past with Devil's Bacbone.

    John- I wouldn't worry about it. Ed had never seen a Vutec before, and so he was staring at the bright spots just as I was. I don't recommend staring at them. Its like staring at the Sun. You just shouldn't do it. I hope my mentioning it doesn't have you staring at the bright spots... Its...

    I'm happy to say the tour will end at John's house with a beautiful picture coming from his BenQ 8700+. I went over last night and after 5 minutes of watching, got to the problems and the picture was STUNNING. Combined with the Martin Logans he has a really great setup. The Vutec did end up...

    Guys- It was great meeting all of you. Sorry I had to bail out early, but I had to keep my fiance happy. Chad, you have a great HT. I can tell you put a lot of thought into the layout, and did a wonderful job creating an amazing space. It not only looked great, but was a superb layout. Some...
