Chavs and plasmas by Professor Yaffle
Whilst plasma screens were initially bought by home cinema enthusiasts, they are now multiplying into chav homes. I cant recall which two programmes I noticed this on over the weekend - I was surfing in some adverts - but there were two houses where in one, the kitchen had sockets hanging off the...

Opinions Bipole v Dipole rears by KD
Hi, After selling my Mission 77DS speakers a couple of months ago due to pet bird positioning considerations I now realise I didn't have to :-( I'm looking at budget rear speakers (£200) to replace these and was wondering whether Bipoles or Dipoles are the best way to go. From what I've seen...

TV License detector van dodging? :) by Ice Man
Just a thought, are the BBC's detector vans capable knowing what you're watching when you have a plasma or LCD type screen? I thought they looked at the CRT type emissions to determine what you were watching. Perhaps detector van days are numbered should everyone have this technology for viewing...

Active Sub woofers - WHY by R. Mark Clayton
Why are subwoofers active? This means that unlike other parts of a home cinema system you can't adjust them from your chosen listening position, you have to find a way of daisy chaining the power (or they get forgotten and left on), and the live lead with variable levels is very vulnerable to...

1080 HD TVs by Ed
Am I the only one that thinks this is a scam on a mahoosive scale by flogging people 'HD ready' TVs that weren't even proper HD, and are now going to flog the same people a new line of 1080 TVs?

HD Plasma or LCD etc. by Nige
Well, HD is still a pipedream for us all, but it's looking nearer. So, why are we buying sets that cant display 'proper' HD. I keep seeing all this HD plasma & LCD bull & they CANNOT display full HD, so why are folk worrying about it? I cannot see a single TV in the Uk that can display 1080i...

Freeview Picture Quality - CRT versus TFT? by HS Crow
I'm disappointed with the quality of Freeview when connecting to an LCD TV using RGB-SCART; I'm testing a Humax 9200T into a Dell W1900 (19" widescreen). I have the Dell on test and it's almost certainly going back, but it's got me wondering; should I expect that when connecting a Freeview PVR to a...

RGB Only SCART by Elliot
Hi readers, If I use an 'RGB only' SCART cable, will my TV still auto-switch to widescreen mode from 4:3, or will this signal have travelled along one of the stripped out connnections? Thanks all.

Who chooses equipment based on 'specifications'?... by Max Christoffersen
Elsewhere our resident engineer is claiming you don't need to hear equipment to know how it sounds. I don't subscribe to this view. Over many years and a *lot* of equipment through the system, I have come to trust my eyes and ears more than the typical hyperbole used in product promotion. I...

Buying a subwoofer from abroad unheard (serious post) by Patrick Navin
In order to add more bite to my system I'm looking at upgrading from my twin PSW1000.2's that I use with my Kef Eggs, to a single larger sub with more oomph. The reasons for this are that, since I laid a wood floor in my room, the sub response has diminished a little, necessitating increasing the...
