    I picked it up at the grocery store today. Haven't really had the time to read it thorougly, but I did flip through it. Seems rather high-end. A lot of pictures, like a thicker version of the Interiors magazine. Anybody else picked it up yet?

    I got a copy last. It is a very nice magazine, kind of like A/V Interiors.

    Is this the one put out by the Robb Report guys? I saw a mag at CEDIA by the RR people and it looked very nice. Noteworthy, one of the writers or editors on staff was David Birch-Jones. If you frequented the HT forums, you'll remember him as being DenonDave--a major source for Denon information ahead of the pack in bridging the internet community and the manufacturer together.

    I started reading it last night before I went to bed. Pretty good so far. They have an article on Billy Blanks (of Tae Bo fame) home and HT setup. I see that Brent guy from Home Theater Magazine has some input on it. I can't remember what he does, but his picture's in the front pages of the magazine ...

    You mean Brent Butterworth, the former editor of the earlier Home Theater magazine? Well, at least that's good news. But if this is like Interiors, does it dwell on the ridiculously, absurdly out-of-reach home bijous of the ultra-rich? Or is it anchored in the real world?

    From what I've seen so far, I'm thinking it's up there in the cost range. It seems to be aimed towards whole house installations as apposed to strictly HT. Billy's house was pretty nice. His theater was beautiful. They had to dig pretty far into the ground because he wanted 3 levels of theater seating. And yes, now that I think about it it was Brent Butterworth. I think he's the editor, because his pictures in the front pages of the magazine, with him introducing it and listing the contributors ...
