HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #645: 4K TV Options

By The HT Guys • 8 hours ago

4K or UltraHD technology is starting to approach mainstream, and the options for 4K TVs is getting better all the time. In a quick glance at the choices selling right now at Amazon.com, we were surprised to see how many there are, and how affordable the have quickly become. Of course, Vizio isn’t in the list yet, so if you’re waiting for that like a certain HT Guy might be, you’ll have to keep waiting. But if you need a new TV now, 4K might be within reach.<img alt="" border="0" src="http://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=htguys.wordpress.com&#038;blog=8935650&#038;post=779&#038;subd=htguys&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

The reason I&#8217;m repeating myself &#8212; not only in the previous sentence, but also in echoing other articles I&#8217;ve written &#8212; is that self-styled experts continue to say that 4K TV will not be successful [&#8230;]

HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #644: Pioneer VSX-44 Elite 7.2 Home Theater Receiver

By The HT Guys • Jul 18, 9:42am

Back in May of 2013 we reviewed one of Pioneer’s entry Elite models the VSX-70. At that time we were impressed with the sound quality but the MSRP of $750 may have been a barrier for some. Now Pioneer has introduced two new entry Elites (VSX-80 MSRP $700 and VSX-44 MSRP $500) that have more capability and lower prices. We take a closer look at the VSX-44.<img alt="" border="0" src="http://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=htguys.wordpress.com&#038;blog=8935650&#038;post=777&#038;subd=htguys&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />
