Have you cut the cord? For some it’s unthinkable; that big, juicy cable/satellite package is as much a necessity as running water. But for those in the country, have a cottage, or if you’re looking to take your TV destiny into their own hands, having a monthly cable bill just isn’t in the cards. That’s why I ended up cutting the cord with an HDTV antenna, an HDTV tuner and an incredibly awesome PVR. Keep reading, because I’m going to show you how.

We’ve all come a long way from some milk crates, a sawhorse and an old CRT TV so heavy it required a handful of neighbours just to reposition it. Home theatres and their equipment today are smaller, lighter, faster, sharper and much more realistic. What would you put in a dream home theatre?  Find out what we built from the selections available on futureshop.ca

We’ve all heard that you should go big or go home. Me? I went big AND went home. I’ve been a huge fan of plasma technology for years, but with its swan song in the air I decided to turn to a whole new way of watching movies and playing games. It was time for me to pick up a projector and get into some serious screen-size action.  Buying a projector isn’t the only thing you’ll need, so here’s a look at the gear you’ll want to pick up to make things perfect in your new home theatre.

If you’re serious about your audio visual setup, no doubt you’ve got your eye on 4K content. It’s the emerging trend for amazing quality picture at home. Getting a 4K screen is only the first step, however. You’ll want to make sure all of your new gear is ready for the new standard. Even if you don’t have a 4K screen yet, if you’re buying a new A/V receiver you should consider its 4K compatibility so that once you do get a 4K screen, you won’t need to replace your receiver too. With that in mind we’re taking a look at two 4K compatible receivers from Denon; the AVR-S700W and the AVR-S900W.

Guide to buying a home theatre projector: what you need to know!

When Pioneer decided to exit the plasma market I felt hurt; the creator of some of the best TV technology available (Kuro black levels) was abandoning what I considered to be the best display tech available. When Panasonic admitted that they, too, were exiting the plasma market, I felt betrayed. It was time to take action. Big action.

 

For me, it was time to move to a projector. Projectors have always been a viable technology for your home theatre, but never more so than now, with big screens and powerful hardware available to make your multiplex-at-home experience possible. It can be a tough category to figure out at first glance, so we're going to walk you through what you need to know today.
