HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #511: HDTV and Home Theater Predictions for 2012

By The HT Guys • Dec 30 2011, 7:18am

2011 was in some ways a wild year for HDTV and home theater, but in many other ways, fairly uneventful. We didn't fare so well in our 2011 predictions, so we're back this year with a vengeance. A lot of thought, research and soul searching went into these and we're really hoping for a better than 50% score this year. Without further ado, the HT Guys HDTV and home theater predictions for 2012.

Every year in late December or early January we look into our crystal ball to see what the coming year will bring in the way of HDTV and Home Theater. Each year we struggle to get a score of 50%, and in many years we fall way short. So let's take a look at 2011 and see how we did.


HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #509: Home Theater “In a Box” 2011

By The HT Guys • Dec 16 2011, 7:31am

As you know, we typically are not big fans of Home Theater in a Box (HTIB) systems. In years past we've decided to put our own "box" systems together, complete with TV, Blu-ray player and the audio system as well. Last year we had a $10,000 system and a $5,000 system. This year, with prices going the way they have, we decided to be even tougher on ourselves and try to produce a complete system for $1,500 or less.

HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #508: Home Theater Projector Buying Guide

By The HT Guys • Dec 9 2011, 6:12am

This is our first time doing it, and we'll admit, it presents some unique challenges, but we did it anyways. This is our first ever HT Guys Projector Buyer's Guide. Of course no projector is complete on its own, it still needs a screen, and the screen plays a large role in how the projector will perform, but the same could be said of receivers and speakers as well. Instead of lumping them into cost categories, we just picked our fave 6 (couldn't use that other number due to trademark infringements).

Today we'll give you our choices for what HDTV to buy in several different price categories. Of course screen size goes up as prices go up, just as you'd expect. And similar to the Receiver Buying Guide, this guide isn't about getting the latest and greatest. Its about getting a good value for your money and something you'll enjoy for years to come.
